25 & 26 December 1927

The great snowstorm that affected much of southern England on Christmas Day 1927 might have happened almost 90 years ago now, but we still can learn something from the synoptic situation that prevailed at the time, thanks to the DWR that the Met Office make available in their digital library. I hope they don’t mind me publishing these two charts for the 25th and 26th of December for anyone who is interested (figs 1 & 2).
