  1. I love this forum, I very rarely post in here because even though I've been a member of this site for years, I'm still not that confident about reading the charts. There are some posters in here that I respect immensely, and I know the ones I trust to give a realistic view. It has to be said though, lately there's been more drama queens in here than RuPaul's drag race! It's been quite amusing at times. On a serious note though, it can be very very confusing in here at times with some posters claiming that it's all looking good for cold, and then the next post is from someone claiming there's no cold showing in the charts! It can be really difficult to get to grips with what's going on. I'm certainly not having a go at anyone in particular, just pointing out that it can be quite bewildering in here at times and it's difficult to gauge who is being balanced about it all. Year after year it never ceases to amaze me how difficult it is to actually get some decent cold/snowy weather here in the UK. But I guess that's the curse of being an island on the edge of an ocean. Anyway, I'll shut up now. At least I have seen some snow here in Wales this winter, albeit short-lived.
  2. I'm sure I'm not alone here, but there is a real depressing anti-climax after a snow event. Especially if there isn't another one in the foreseeable future!
  3. There's some pretty intense stuff to the east which is moving west, it's not over yet ?
  4. Not necessarily. But then it wasn't forecast to last for ages anyway.
  5. Yes, sticky snow always looks much nicer than the powdery stuff that blows around.
  6. I think it will continue for hours yet, varying in intensity. Sometime almost stopping but it's pepping up to our east and it's drifting westwards now the front has pivoted. To be honest though, I'm pretty happy with what I have already. Going for a walk in this snow is nothing short of magical.
  7. There's hours left in this yet! I'm really pleased with how this had gone tbh, ok so it's not as disruptive as we were led to believe but everywhere is white, the snow is continually falling with varying intensity. What's not to like?
  8. To be honest, I think the met office amber warning was justified. The front pivoted a bit later than expected that's all and the precip was less heavy. These things happen.
  9. Plenty of life in this system yet! Several hours of light to moderate snow I think. It's not going to be a foot deep for us but still a decent event in my opinion.
  10. I'd say there's periods of light to moderate snow for a good few hours yet at least.
  11. The precip will probably lose intensity as it moves over us, yellows will turn to green and green to dark blue - but this event is not over yet!
  12. There's a nice green blob over Cardiff right now. I lived in Thornhill for 10 years and I know there can be much more up there than the city centre.
  13. A few glasses of wine whilst snow watching, there's nothing like it. Good thing I work from home. Snow is heavier here now, precip is pepping up.
