I don't see the missed opportunity or the let down this morning. There was never much precipitation forecast especially for the south and not enough cold air in the end before the less cold air moves in for tomorrow. The weekend sees the start of the coldest air of the winter and If by the end of next week you still haven't seen snow, maybe then we can all be disappointed.

Buzz off you've had yours already. Let the rest of us get in on it.

 

I would imagine theres a fair bit on the hills west of Wrexham. I caught a glimpse of Llandegal and Horseshoe Pass area earlier and it was white. Even Hope Mountain was white! Take a trip to the higher ground if you want to see snow.

 

Hopefully when then cold fully digs in lower elevations will see snow too.

Yet 50 miles away at Manchester Airport (not exactly renowned for being elevated), they're suspending landing and take offs while they clear snow from the runway!!! Just adds to the frustration! Edited by Carl46Wrexham

Had to turn around trying to go from Crickhowell over to Garnlydan. Going up Black Rock was exciting but as soon as i got West of Highest Point it all faded away.

 

Doubt there will be much to lower levels today. Merthyr is just wet at the moment, but Dowlais Top has a covering.

Had a gd few cm in Blaenavon over night and plenty of showers this AM. The mountain road between Blaenavon and Abergavenny was particularly bad on the Monmouthshire sid.

Just wet snow here and sunshine but something more organised looks like it's heading this way .

I could see plenty of snow on the berwyns this morning but now I can't see them and as I'm typing the sleet is changing to big white flakes .

It was never going to be an epic and some areas have seen settling snow, albeit not at such low levels as many of the charts earlier in the week suggested.

Whiteout conditions at the moment!

 

The Ogwen Mountain Rescue webcams make for some interesting viewing!

Chester sodding zoo has even got lying snow and that's a lower level than here! What have we got? Green green (wet) grass and sleety rain! Sod it off...it can get to soddery!

Give us some sunshine...better than this lousy cold grot.

Agreed. I'm unsure where most are getting their weather forecasts from as MetO and BBC have been pretty good at calling things this winter. So i'm unsure why people are disappointed when there was never anything really significant touted in the first place. 

 

With the MetO updating their warnings and the cold only just getting started there's still bags of potential left. 

 

As Public Enemy said "Don't.....don't don't don't......don't believe the hype" -------------> Mod boards

 

It ain't winter 13/14 and it ain't going to be 'mild' over the next week, so sit back an chill.

Over the border in Ingurland (Wirral to be precise), it's snowing but not settling.. I will have to go out and take some photo of the hills when it clears, as everywhere from Shotton, Holywell, down to maybe Gwespyr is snow covered.. even snowing in Anglesey!

Hasn't even properly started yet. Less cold tomorrow before Saturday into Sunday and into next week is the coldest air of the winter and the best chance of snow. If come the end of next week and you still haven't seen snow, then I'll agree with you.

Could be a decent snow event Tuesday for wales but we'll have to wait and see. Last night, today and tomorrow was always too marginal. Miss the days of 2010 when everything on the radar picture was snow, even in the sea
