TheWeatherOutlook is based in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, which is only about 25 miles northwest of Central London. However the combination of the 100m to 180m elevation and being away from the urban heat island means snow is a noticeably more frequent occurrence than it is in London.
On December 10th 2017 Berkhamsted had its heaviest snowfall since December 2010. A level depth of approximately 14cm of snow was recorded in the fields on the outskirts of the town. Below is a selection of pictures showing the snow which were taken around the town. If you would like to use any of the images in publications or websites / apps please contact us and we will send a copy of the high resolution original.
