Heavy Snow Across the United Kingdom51.5N 0.1W
Much of the United Kingdom was affected by heavy snowfall last week. Here, snow can be seen blanketing southeast England, down to the sediment-laden Thames Estuary (bottom), east of London. Over seven centimeters of white powder were reported after the first night of snowfall. The snow caused hundreds of school closings, particularly in the Midlands, as well as road closures, and delays and cancellations for both trains and flights.
