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. 

Problem is many people fall for the hype merchants (although to be fair not many on the Welsh thread this Winter).

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

Yes we still have a week possibly more of opportunities.

Am curious to understand why snow is falling and settling at modest elevation in parts of North West England, yet here we've had rain/sleet and am at higher up than some places with lying snow? (Chester Zoo, Liverpool, Manchester)

Wrong wind direction? Rogue warmer uppers?

Where abouts in Wrexham are you? Wrexham is pretty sheltered by the hills and mountains to the west in this wind direction.

Persistent heavy precip evap cooling I would think its highly marginal.

As dew points drop over the coming hours then maybe snow could fall to lower levels.

At the moment 300m plus is where the money is.

Big steamer setting up Saturday morning over Carmarthenshire and over Swansea. Keep an eye on this, will change to pembrokeshire later on in the day and into Sunday as winds turn to northerly

So, just checked the radar and the heaviest of snow is just passing over before a couple of hours lull.  It is pelting snow down here now and settling.  - probs not for long.

colder air filtering further south now into south wales, more chance of wet snow/snow in these showers. Short window though before the less cold air arrives.

Now that is a good sign for here! Colder air digging down ahead of the clearance over NW Wales then.

That I can buy into. Now you mention it, the rain/sleety/sloppy snow mix was moderate intensity in truth. Things just too marginal, precipitation not heavy enough for evaporative cooling to come into play.
