    For once I'm in the dry spot between two masses of precipitation. Glad you're getting some heavy stuff.

    Not expecting much out of this tbh, the heavier stuff is below us and it seems to be fragmenting as it moves over us, sadly. Shame.

    Now living in Ogmore Vale (originally from Nantymoel), top of the Ogmore Valley. Normally we get much more precipitation than Cardiff - but this is a very different setup.

    Ok then, there is still an awful lot of precipitation moving out of the English Channel.What are your thoughts about what it means for Welsh snowfall? Will it fizzle out before it gets here or move elsewhere?

    Like I said Andy, it's not directed at anyone personally. It just seems a bit cliquey in here most of the time. It's like walking into a pub where the locals stare at you as if to say "Who the nope - still swearing are you?" lol. Maybe that's a bit extreme but it's a reasonable analogy.

    That is certainly part of it, you're right. I'm admin of several large facebook groups so I'm no shrinking violet, but I always feel apprehensive about posting in here. Like you, I have been ignored, even after repeating the same question several times.

    Yes, I have been keeping my eye on that and it seems it will provide a nice burst of snow! There's loads of precipitation still below us, I hope that makes its way here also!

    I have been observing the snow from my window for most of the day whilst working. It has been snowing constantly, sometimes quite heavily. But it never seemed to be accumulating outside. So I took a step outside and had a shock, and realised that the wind causing drifting of powder snow was causing quite deep drifts that I wasn't aware of! It was quite something though to see snowing being horizontally blown by a strong howling wind!

    It's been a good event here, drifts of about a foot. Is it better than 2010? No. I was living in Thornhill in Cardiff then and the level snow was over a foot deep. Cardiff has done really well out of this and I'm glad tbh. I was down in Cardiff at 9am this morning and it was pretty bad then. I'm on jury service at the moment and all Cardiff Crown Court trials have been cancelled until Monday. I don#t think there's much danger of the courts resuming in the morning. I'm sorry that the whole of Wales has not been able to report the same amount of snow. However, at the time of writing it is 1:46am and there is more to come yet. There is a huge amount of precipitation moving up from France, but it's questionable if it will get here. I used to post in here years ago but not done so much for a while. I'll tell you the reason, and I'm not directing this at anyone personally, but it is very cliquey in here. There are a group of you that know each other well in here and to be honest it almost feels like I'm intruding on your space. I would like to post more but I do feel a bit excluded. As for the model thread, forget it! There is absolutely no point. Anyway, I hope most of us are enjoying the snow. This is a rare event in the UK when the daytime max does not exceed -4ºC. Personally, I'm snowed in up in Ogmore Vale so I'm on the wine!

    People on facebook are driving me barmy! Even calling me a liar for saying this is going to happen. And even after showing them the radar of what's coming up beneath us they still won't believe me!

    Model thread is bonkers! Today it's like having a jury with one person disagreeing with the other 11, and they are all try to change his mind!

    I noticed that your post was deleted almost straight away. A 24 hour ban is a bit heavy just for that!

    Model thread is like a primary school playground today, or is it the south east England regional thread? I can never tell these days!
