    I just looked at radar, and from metro and rain today radar( free ones) snow passing by Newport Cardiff Bridgend etc within an hour. I myself hope so as work later and need to get car out. Are these radars correct?

    Had more snow over night but Just seen BBC forecast, possisibly snow for higher ground today rain on lower levels, but looks like a quick thaw coming in tommorow it was showing plus 8 temps. Risk of flooding then?

    I don't think there be much snow today from the radars I have looked at to be honest. Most is going under wales but maybe I'm missing something.

    Am I seeing this wrong? This radar is looking like by about 10pm all snow past lots of south Wales? Not that bad so far and this radar isn't really showing much. I understand it could hold on us and strengthen but anyone think the met office may have over played this?

    Looking at radar it looks like snow on and off until later this afternoon then boom. BBC talking 10 cm but double that on high ground with blizzard conditions. Even 4 inches going into drifts will cause serious problems. Has there been a shift west? As lots seems to be going west rather than north now or am I wrong.

    Any ideas what time tommorow snow will start? I'm pretty sure lots of Wales will get an awful lot of snow tommorow and overnight into Friday. But I have an important meeting at 10am for only an hour in Swansea but want to make sure I get home. Take me about 45 mins so should arrive home just before 12. Am I correct the snow is later than this? Cheers.

    White now behind my house, I would say from 400m up. Nothing settling at 300m but wet snow. But looking at radar this area seems to clear for at least upto 11 pm other than a little bit of rain/sleet/ snow.

    The snow in Italy has been terrible,just watching the news, avalanche hit a hotel possibly 30 people missing. I don't want anything like that. We have had snow up here twice being on mountain but low areas had nothing. like that most years. I think last time low areas had snow was 4 yes yesterday.and cannot recall snow lying for yrs and yrs in low lying areas around here. This island doesn't seem to get cold snowy winters any longer, or they very few and far between. That's how when we do get cold spells we cannot cope,and to be honest thats why I don't want a event like we had in 70,s and 80,s. We be stuck for weeks ha ha. Still a good few weeks left mind.but nights are getting lighter.

    I disagree to be honest,where I live gets snow but only a 2 mins drive down they get sleet rain. Other than when the cold is in for a good few days then it clashes with weather coming across from Ireland does low areas get what I call snow.yes they may get flakes but that's not what they want. Last night for instance down Bridgend very wet snow/ sleet no sticking at all. Drove up the valleys and everywhere was ok until Nantymoel.even then. Only a little come up big hill and had to park car up as snow and ice. Majority of south Wales doesn't do well in this set up for lying snow. Our big snows of years gone by have been cold air clashing with mild and dumping on Wales for hours. Sometimes you get bigger showers that hang about but even then it's high areas that get it. I myself find the snow a pain unless it blocks my car as got to try and drive to work.
