just sits on Wales and snows most of the day! - last day of Jan!

 

edit - on this gfs run - it continues into Saturday too - we welcome the 1st FEB - may it be a very snowy month!

 

double edit - and into sunday too - wow - this may make up for our long long wait finally!

 

triple edit:- and just to top it off - throws a channel low in with -5/-6 over the snow fields of Wales and adds some more snow to it for next Monday - what a model run - I'm sure details will change - and it won't end up quite like that - but flipping awesome to finally see winter does still exist!

 

strong word of caution I suppose - GFS may have been on the heavy stuff tonight - brandys or whiskeys - but let's hope it's onto something

There was a flash of lightning here a few minutes ago, but didn't way to say anything as there didn't appear to be anything on any Lightning Detectors.

Funnily enough I thought I saw a distant flash to the SE just about 2010 while walking the dog!

I've moved down to Swansea last week, and while it has many advantages, I do mourn the snow-friendliness of my previous mid-Wales location. Radar suggest it is snowing in Llandrindod Wells now, which would be the first since Christmas there.

 

No snow yet in my (low down) part of Swansea, just a bit of hail about half an hour ago. Am hoping for a bit of snow in showers over the next few hours.

That's quite a change of scenery and weather for you Mike..

There's a trough currently over Ireland heading our way for later which should bring some organised precipitation, hopefully there's a good bit of snow in there. Get those lamposts ready!

Heavy shower just missed us to the south. Last post from me tonight, good luck to those lamppost watchers, I'll see what I get in the morning, I think I already know the answer.

 

Nos Da.

They have been since 10pm hahaha But that trough is linked with higher dew points/uppers so for lower ground its much more marginal...

PS Showers now approaching my location,so we'll see what falls!

Well lets see what the stuff from Ireland brings! Have a feeling that it will be rain for low levels due to higher DP's but we will see!

Yes, wouldnt expect much from that area of precip, DP's rising from around -1 to 2/3c for most. Higher ground be ok though. Great hail shower in cardiff earlier.

It was amazing, havent seen that sized hail in a long time! Loved the crack of thunder at the end! 

PS Some showers approaching me now, will report when/if they arrive Posted Image...
