    Snowing nicely now here, hopefully with the temperature continuing to drop it should start to stick a bit more effectively.

    Sleet in west Swansea turning to snow in the heavier bursts.

    Slight dusting of snow in west Swansea this morning. Which by the sounds of it has caused some traffic issues!

    Haven't posted on NW in 3 years due to other things in life taking precedent, but having read the model threads recently (I see nothing's changed on there!), decided I'd sign back in to join you all for the rest of winter! Originally from Cambridgeshire but currently reside in Swansea. Had a fantastic winter last year in my previous location in North Staffordshire but I do remember the big snow event which delivered plenty of snow for parts of Wales at the start of March last year! Whilst it's disappointing that the previously snowy looking charts aren't going to materialise, I feel that various components are tilted in our favour for a decent cold spell to occur sometime within the next couple of months.

    Snowed for maybe an hour or so around midnight which left a slight covering. Temperature rose slightly which melted most of it away. Has snowed on and off this morning but slightly too warm for it to settle. However, some heavier precipitation is arriving now, hopefully that may bring the temperature down a bit.

    I'm at the University not the village. As for Ian Brown, don't think he's been on the forum for a few years now.. Meanwhile, light snow continuing, 0C.

    Had light snow for maybe 30 minutes or so, a light dusting so far, maybe a bit more to come..

    Started snowing about 15-20 minutes ago here. Was sleety rain in Newcastle, might have changed since then.

    Yep, moderate snow falling here at the moment. Though very marginal, hopefully the temperature will come down quickly.

    From the radar, looks like you might see some falling quite soon.

    Met Office Yellow warning for parts of the West Midlands: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/#?tab=warnings&map=Warnings&zoom=5&lon=-3.50&lat=55.50&fcTime=1452729600&regionName=wm "Showers will become frequent on Thursday evening and heavy at times, increasingly turning to snow on high ground and inland, with a longer spell of sleet and snow moving south-eastwards across Wales and into parts of the West Midlands and West country overnight. Snow accumulations of 5-10 cm are likely across Wales above 200 metres, with 1-4 cm possible at low levels well inland from the coast. Ice is also likely to form on untreated surfaces. Across England, smaller amounts of snow are expected, but 1-3 cm is possible above 200 metres, with some small slushy accumulations to low levels very locally. With some of the showers falling as sleet or rain, ice is more likely to prove a hazard here where surfaces are untreated."

  22. Here's the link to the model thread where 'That ECM' run unfolded. https://forum.netweather.tv/topic/75166-model-output-discussion-12z-04122012/page-42 It was lucky that the rest of 2012/13 was pretty decent for cold and snow!
