November 1947.

Can anyone tell me what the weather was like in November 1947?

All the reports go on about the great winter of 1946 - 47. But not a mention of November 1947.

Reason I ask is someone told me they were born in November 1947 and their father had to get a midwife and the snow was over the ditches.

Nearest I can get to a mention of snow in November is this bit from netweather mentioning snow fall and a big swing in temperature in Scotland.

This person was from the southeast of Ireland.

Thanks for that! Seemingly there was heavy snowfall in the southeast on the 17th.
