    42 years ago tonight was the big blizzard of 82. Sorry about not being able to master posting the actual set up, but the chart looks rather benign at first glance with no defined low pressure system. However the squeeze of Easterly winds blasting over the Irish Sea and its longevity really piled up the snow into huge drifts. Thereafter was very severe frost prolonging the snow depth compared to storm Emma that was thawing from the ground up in particular due to the time of year.
