    Snow in England?

    Apparently sometimes it snows in England.

    Sometimes it also snows in Australia.

    It hasn't, however, snowed in Egypt for quite some time.

    I don't mate, was just having a lend.

    I don't really know if England gets the same sort of heavy dumps of snow that say Denver gets, though I think it's climate is more mild than other places at similar latitudes because of the Gulf Stream which carries warm water in a Northerly direction up past West of the island, which apparently makes things "warmer".

    Though of course, describing England's climate as "warm" is like describing a leg amputation as "minor surgery".

    Yes it snows in England.

    Not that often in recent times down south. But those funny talking Northerners get it pretty bad. Esp the Scottish ones.

    Snow in England?
    Well, according to his Cricinfo profile, he set up a travel agency after he retired from cricket, but I assume he still lives in the Mother Country.

    These things are relative.

    Were the Gulf Stream to be a "normal" cold-water current, the UK's climate would be borderline polar.

    Anyway we got proper snow down here the first winter I moved down here (1996/97) and I took it for granted, given that up in the north-east you get the stuff every winter pretty much without fail. However, it was mere coincidence - we haven't really had any proper settled snow since then, though we came close in 2002/03.

    Only the northernmost parts of England get proper snow, but in terms of the actual UK, it's probably about half-and-half - that is, the borderline where it goes from "no chance other than in exceptional circumstances" to "every year, sometimes more than once" is probably about halfway up the island.

    Dude, your country is like 15 feet in length. Makes the north-south distinction moot.

    Odd bout of snow a couple of weeks ago though, usually comes around January/February-ish.
