    Mar. 29–31, 1901. Snowstorms.—During the passage of a deep barometric depression across Ireland and Scotland heavy snow fell in North Wales, Scotland, and the north of England, mainly on Mar. 29. In some places the depth of snow was three feet on level ground, and it was piled by the wind in great drifts, especially on the Snowdon Range.
