  1. March 1-3 2017 had some terrific powdery snow. In the lanes we had some huge drifts near the sweet spot of St Athan in the the rural Vale of Glamorgan. We were plugged solid for weeks from this storm.

    Snowing all last night and today near Cardiff airport. Same ground up melt that others have noted but a thaw-freeze with fresh snow due continually into the early hours will make the rural roads treacherous.

    Snowed last night again in the south near the airport. Also a drip, drip, drip but there’s still huge drifts and plenty of settled snow. I live between two villages and we are all totally cut off by massive drifts filling the lanes still. The airport remains closed and farmers yesterday were telling me some major routes were likely to remain impassable. It’s going to be remembered as a big event in the rural Vale of Glamorgan. Lots of services may well still be closed by Monday.

    Steady blowing snow since 6.00 about a mile from the airport. We’re on farmland and the fields are covering up in white nicely.

    Lanes and even A roads through farmland aren’t great as the water runs off. There’ll be lots of localised flooding across the rainy part of South Wales today. I’m near the airport and took my landrover to Barry earlier - far less capable vehicles were being driven at speeds near to 40mph through standing water by the unaware and the stupid. We’ve had a lot of this away from the snowy parts (we just had that one afternoon of rain to snow before Christmas) although winter seems to have been snowy for many at elevation.

    Looks like some members had a good snow day. Sadly it was not great for me. Had a few seconds of snow in Barry this morning. Felt optimistic about evening showers for near the airport. Had ten minutes of lovely driving snow as I drove down the A48 back from Cowbridge at about 7pm. Then it dried up. Apart from a couple of flurries for seconds at a time, nothing but starry skies above me between Moulton and Penmark. I’m calling it a night. Well done if you had better: fingers crossed for us all for the next event this weekend.

    Well... we have had some snow this winter, about as far south as you can get, near the airport and the coast. It fell without settling for an hour or so on Saturday morning. My snowy expectations have been ruinously high since growing up in the 70s on higher ground. My enjoyment of snow, and my expectations, formed during those late 70s and early 80s snow events. They were boosted by a couple of early 90s winters in the East Midlands. Then we had 2009. But not much since. And in the lean years frustration grows. What chance of something in the next few weeks?

    Well, it is snowing in Penmark, about a mile from the airport. Nothing to get too excited about though, as it is not settling yet. Not going to see anyone on a sledge from this.
