    Wales/Cymru Regional Weather Discussion

    Still all to play for based on these snow depth charts from the higher res models up to 6pm Friday, with quite large differences showing, so don't be too concerned over any individual model / individual run - if you're not expecting much, keep an eye on the radar / window tomorrow and you never know...

    Sadly I was only 3 in 1982, though my Dad tells me the snow was over my head and he had to carry me on his shoulders Some good video footage of the event here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-42615172

    Accumulation pattern fairly similar to the Hirlam model posted earlier - perhaps a bit high as those are for tomorrow only - here are the 48 hour accumulations predicted up to Friday lunchtime: https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/hirlam.php?ech=48&mode=45&map=430 Compared to the Arpege model which has less in the west but more in the east / mid Wales: https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/arpege.php?ech=48&mode=45&map=300 Either way, looks like quite an eventful couple of days coming up! Freezing rain is the other thing to look out for, Hirlam shows rain in western parts in the early hours of Friday.

    HIRLAM is available to view here: https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/hirlam.php Shows perhaps more snow than forecast overnight tonight for central areas of Wales and then more snow towards western parts tomorrow evening and night - so perhaps less of a snow shield here in Carmarthenshire...
  7. Is there still any chance of setting a daily CET record for 28th? When was the last time we set a cold record, was it 2010 or do we have to go back further?

    Winter 17/18 lowest min temp watch

    Could we get a lower minimum in spring than winter, if it's lower tomorrow night than tonight?

  10. The mention of 1932-33 is interesting. Round here that winter is legendary for producing one of the biggest blizzards the area has ever seen. One thing missing from even the recent colder winters has been a severe individual snowfall event (Feb 2007 is actually the biggest in recent memory; we had similar depths in 2010 but this built up over several days). http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picturegalleries/uknews/8209333/Britains-coldest-winters-on-record-in-pictures.html?image=19
