  1. Awful until 8pm. Since then chucking it down and settling on all surfaces. Early 6 nations start tomorrow afternoon then. Tredegar Arms for you / Machen RFC for me!!
  2. The front has totally stalled but not degrading quickly either. Should be hours of moderate snow left in this for many.
  3. Starting to settle in the valley for the first time now.
  4. The Met Office have got their boss man onto it today. Still looking good for most in South Wales.
  5. No dramas mate. Expect Orange by mid morning if not before.
  6. Anyone worried about Thursday needs to take a look at this from the Met Office. Deputy Chief Forecaster puts the valleys into the sweetspot for probability. Skip to about 15 mins onwards for Thursday. Well explained by her.
  7. Hello all. Back for the crazy season again. Looks like the valleys could be in the firing line for the best of UK snow again this week. Those reading the MAD thread over time will confirm that those folk in there need Beasterlies to get their boat floated in the SE. North Westerlies deliver for us here in God's country despite the knife edge marginality as always. However, wet snow is our default and big flakes pile up pretty quickly right? Looks like we will have a couple of potential events this week - Tuesday and Thursday. Andy / Keith / Julian - what's your current thinking? Good Luck all.
  8. Next Thursday's slider is going to have a 48 hour stall right above Brynmill Lane!
  9. The small low over St Malo in Normandy should arrive by 4-5AM for the Beast's goodbye present. (The Euro 4 model has it too.) Could be a few hours of intense wet flake PPN at the same time as the lowest traffic flow leaving some pretty hairy road conditions come sunrise. Eyes down for the radar watch. Location and timing is one for the die-hard all-nighter snow fans amongst you!
  10. Radar showing this next batch intensifying into an organised front. Massive change in an hour and probably another 4-5 hours of this to come - maybe more!
  11. The moisture feed from Normandy just keeps on rebuilding!
  12. Not stopped since 7am. Great snow quality. Maybe better than that in the Alps last week! Dry champagne powder reminds me of what I had in Jasper Canada about 10 years ago. A memorable event in progress here.
  13. Batten them down, she's knocking at our door and I don't think it will even peak until 8-10pm later!
  14. Check the METEOX radar for what's coming from the South. Next serving is big and looks to have most of South Wales in its sights followed by another interlude before another course brewing up over Iberia. A great moisture supply if the synoptics stay fairly similar.
