The cold weather extended as far south as Algeria, with rare snowfall on several towns and cities. Roads were blocked and villages in mountainous areas were cut off. At least 16 people were reported to have died - five of them from carbon monoxide poisoning linked to gas heating.
The winter of 2010-2011 in Europe began with an unusually cold November caused by a cold weather cycle that started in southern Scandinavia and subsequently moved south and west over both Belgium and the Netherlands on 25 November and into the west of Scotland and north east England on 26 November. This was due to a low pressure zone in the Baltics, with a high pressure over Greenland on 24 November.

It's weird because I live in Northern Canada and we have had record warmth with little to no snow. This has NEVER happened in my entire life. Weather all over the world seems to be shifting.

Warm winter here in southern US. Normally we've had a couple of snow falls by now, 2-3 inches and highs in the 30s.
I don't think the temp has dropped below 50 since before Christmas. We've got plants blooming, birds building nests, the whole Spring works. Personally I kinda like it, but I do miss the snow.
