  1. Just stayed as sleety rain here last night but 5 miles up the road in Maesteg they had a nice covering of snow! Lovely cold rain now with a temp of 5c and a fair breeze, hope to get my shot at my first snowfall soon!
  2. Im sure you'll get plenty more up there! Haha Still sleety rain here, its like it wants to snow at times but just can't quite manage it
  3. Just drove home from Cardiff to Tondu and currently have heavy rain/sleet which i didn't expect, some nice big icy flakes hitting the windscreen!
  4. Its 2.7C and cold rain here thismorning, not my favourite weather by far but nice to see the first snowfalls across some areas already. Gives me a little hope for the winter after last year being pretty boring snow wise here for the most part.
  5. Woke up to our first frost of the season this morning, cold and sunny start to the day temp currently 3c.
  6. Had quite a few thundery showers thismorning, one with a lightening strike right behind my house, so bright and loud, closest I've ever been to a strike and don't want to get that close again haha! Some intense rain and hail too which was nice. Not had much thundery activity by me this year so was nice surprise.
  7. Shotgun lightning behind my house, wasn't expecting it, never had it that close before, loudest thing ever, scary, amazing to see!

  8. Wasn't expecting to be in a thunderstorm today and this rain and hail is crazy but just had the loudest shotgun thunder from the closest lightning strike that hit just behind my house, never had it hit on my doorstep before
  9. Pretty boring day weather wise if I'm honest. Had some rain at times overnight but been an mostly overcast day with some sunny intervals, breezy at times and damp. Temp 8.5C Max @ 12.00pm 9.6C Overnight low @ 2am 5.8C Dewpoint 4.9C Windchill 8.5C Wind 2-3bft Max gust 24.6mph Pressure 1007.8mb 24hr rainfall 5.2mm
  10. Rain slowly washing away the last of remaining snow on north facing roofs and gardens, temp 5.5C, snow has stayed around for much longer than I anticipated! I'll be happy now if that's all we get as it's lasted a few days on the ground!
  11. Low of -3.0C overnight, currently 4.4C according to the new station, still some snow on the grass and patches of shaded ground/roofs but mostly melted away from that. Beautiful clear sunny day here though cold in any breeze. Love these winter days.
  12. Still some snow about surprisingly, thought it would have all melted, happy days! So my new weather station arrived today, all set up and outside nicely and everything's working, all connected up to the laptop too. However kept the old thermometer from the last weather station out there (that's all that works from my last one) and they are giving quite different readings! The old thermometer (on a fence, facing north under some trees) is reading 3.6C whilst the new one (places on the shed, near the fence and under a tree, quite well sheltered) is reading 2.9C - very interesting to see the two differ, is the new one likely to be more accurate?
  13. Just made it up the Bwlch in my little ds3, our landscape is so beautiful in the snow! Was incredibly windy up there though.
  14. Well been and measured an inch of snow on the garden bench/table, but its all starting to melt quickly now temps rise! Will have to take a drive and see if I can get some pictures before it all melts
  15. Ended up with a nice dusting of a couple cms, but didn't get much after I went to sleep it appears. Has been lovely to see and definitely sorted my snow fix for the time being!
  16. I just need the gap of light snow that keeps stopping above me to fill with the darker blue shadows all around me, my snow shield is giving it a try on the radar hopefully with the westward movement a little, I can get some darker echos over me and some from the east, just to be greedy and add a few cms to what I have!
  17. Constant light snow here, bit outside of the moderate snow but the light snow might add a cm or 2 as it can be seen to slowly building up. Very good night indeed!
  18. Just had a look out back and it's still snowing, about 2cm out there
  19. Snow stopped for a bit but has started again, albeit small flakes but picking up, fingers crossed we will catch any of the heavier stiff that does manage to make if over!
  20. Got maybe 2-3cm here but it has pretty much stopped snowing, just some fine flakes blowing in the wind now. Temp steady at 1.6c,
  21. Already got the most snow since March last year. Very happy indeed although it has pretty much stopped/gone very light. Built up much quicker than I expected. I may have worried but it was worth it for this!
  22. Yes it is struggling north going by netweather radar, looks to be fragmenting a bit too as it gets lighter? Definitely gone light here now in comparison to earlier, lets hope some of those yellows over the sw still manage to make it up here
  23. It's gone from the first photo I posted at the top of the page to this in 10mins and even heavier now
  24. Got heavier here now, the wet cars and roofs are now turning white as are patches of road/pavement starting to get a slight covering, hopefully it only gets better from here!
  25. It's lovely to see but not really sticking besides the drive and grass, lots of big puddles now. Need temps to drop further and heavier precip for it to stick and accumulate.
