Due to its elevated geography and inland location, Birmingham experiences more snowfalls than many other parts of the UK.
The city is located on the Birmingham Plateau and is between 150 and 300 meters above sea level.
As a result, snow showers often move through the city via northwest air currents while experiencing the coldness of the easterly winds from the North Sea.
Although Birmingham has a great insulating effect on metropolitan areas, meaning the city is hotter than the surrounding areas due to human activity, extreme weather conditions are not unknown.
On January 14, 1982, the temperature at Birmingham Airport dropped to -20.8 degrees Celsius – the coldest temperature ever recorded in the region.
This is only six degrees less than the lowest ever recorded in the UK.
Birmingham has 571 parks, more than any other European city. While this is great for the environment and the general health of residents, it also has a cooling effect. Desired in summer, less so in harsh winter.
