The United Kingdom has been blanketed by snow today (January 18th) thanks to a front coming in from the Atlantic and coming across the blocking anticyclone over Norway which has been pummeling Europe with bitterey cold temperatures for well over a week now.Our village (as can see in these pics) is only a quarter of mile from the coast and yet, even here, it snowed to a depth of two inches here. In some parts of Wales up to a foot of snow has been recorded and even the British Prime Minister got snowed on as he made his way to the Commons to make a statement on the situation in Algeria. This type of heavy snow across the United Kingdom is quite rare with the last example being in 2010
