  1. Created: 09:55 on Mon 28 Jan 2019 GMT Further details A band of rain will arrive across Wales, northern and western England through the middle of Tuesday, then move eastwards through Tuesday afternoon and evening. The rain will turn quickly to snow on hills, then also to low levels in places. 3 to 5 cm snow is likely above 200 metres, with up to 10 cm in a few places. A patchy covering of 1 to 2 cm is possible at low levels, although some places will see no snow at all. As skies clear overnight, ice is likely to form on some surfaces. In addition, wintry showers will follow into western areas on Wednesday morning, giving further slight accumulations of snow in a few places. Snow and ice warning covering all of Wales out by MetO
  2. Haha came here to post this as well! Looked out my window and it's lashing down... with rain. I thought yesterdays repeat foehn effect gap was the kick in the teeth. I was wrong. Today's heavy rain from the same direction is the real kick in the teeth. It's like some kind of sick joke. And to rub it in........ a tweet half hour ago from DEREK "Now a tropical +5 in Swansea" Roll on summer!
  3. Someone mentioned (I think J10) it's because of the Foehn effect? We're in a rain/snow shadow because of the direction the precipitation is moving in How unlucky
  4. Is this going to be a repeat of last night for the South Westerners? Nice kick in the teeth for us Swansea/Llanelli gash is back on the radar
  5. All the models I've looked at this morning are keeping the shield firmly in place... except for HIRLAM so let's hope that's correct! HIRLAM chart attached... though I think it will be more patchy than this. Edit: Not sure about the direction maybe someone else can answer that. It looks to me though as if it will be similar to last night
  6. Carmarthenshire and Swansea in the same sentence as SNOW? Hmm that doesn't seem right!
  7. Waw Pembroke, Milford Haven and the west of Pembs taking a hammering according to the radar. More red echoes there than over Cardiff and SE Wales!!
  8. Hardly record breaking snow here in Llanelli but nice to see something in March... very patchy with a few inches here and there. Some 5 inch drifts but nothing crazy At least my puppy loved it!
  9. Yes HIRLAM model showing the moderate to heavy stuff 6pm onwards
  10. Yes nice surprise... Been watching the radar. Some nice green pixels over Swansea heading toward me in Llanelli... but every time the radar refreshes the intensity drops before it gets to me ahahaha! I can't complain though everything is turning white and the wind is blowing it around like crazy
  11. Haha it's sickening, even Penzance looks like it's accumulated more. We've just got to laugh at this point I think
  12. HIRLAM gives us westerners hope Still though, even on this model parts of Carmarthenshire look like the only place in Wales to not get some decent snow
