    Stopped completely now in Aberdare. The snow shower that lasted 10 minutes the other day left way more snow than this event. There's no way the second front is going to make it here. As it hits land it's just evaporating further south. Not quite sure why we are in an amber zone here. The heavy stuff just hasn't made it out of the south west

    Hmmmm I'm a little sceptical about this event. First front has died a death. Second front appears to be heading north east missing S Wales entirely. I await the thoughts of people a little more technically minded than myself

    Snowing here in Aberdare and just starting to settle but intensity will need to pick up and temp drop to see anything of note. Above 200m should do well esp SE and E facing slopes of the valleys and of course the H ot V too

    It is important that people differentiate the met office forecast from that of the BBC. As you know the BBC no longer use Met office data so that's why there is disparity between the two

    What is very encouraging is the fact the ground temp will be close to freezing once precip starts thanks to a penetrating and severe frost for many rural areas tonight

    Evening All well it's certainly looking like South, East and Mid Wales are going to get some pretty decent coverage tomorrow. Favoured spots are as always elevation and exposure to the SE. Heads of the Valleys look to be in the firing line as they were for our last snowfalls in March. If I was a betting man I would say Brynmawr is my favoured location for the biggest totals, closely followed by Ebbw Vale and Tredegar Here in Aberdare I'm expecting a decent cover but with some protection from the East I don't expect more than 5-10cms max here We shall see. T minus 14 hours
  9. And the EC also shunting everything South as well following on from the UKMO. For comparison here are 96/120/144
  10. UKMO looking like it's keeping the snow threat going across the UK with its 0z run. Difficult to know exactly as no access to the 850's 96/120/144
  11. If we look across the main 0z suites, then we could say that the colder weather has gained a little momentum today (except gfs) and shows sub -5 air straddled across the UK right out pretty much to day 10 Next week is certainly going to throw up some wintry surprises for some in the UK Do not write winter off just yet. This has certainly got the potential to upgrade and nothing is set in stone yet. I think tomorrow's 12z will throw a little more light on a likely outcome
  12. And the 6z gfs is keen to take us back into deep winter again just a week from now.
  13. UKMO slower yes but looking like the low around Iceland has nowhere to go but move SE as a trigger low sending all that cold over Scandi southwestwards
  14. Quite remarkable Synoptics showing up this March. Especially given the fact that many have decent cold to tap into. How often in the past have we seen great charts but lacking in cold to tap into. It seems the cold over the pole keeps draining south and west. Is this still all to do with the second wave of SSW?
