Strange and revealing drive from college in Crosskeys (near Risca) back home to Bassaleg (west Newport.) Started off in Crosskeys as sleet/ snow and three miles down the road in Bassaleg rain/ sleet and car temp had risen 1c. No real change in elevation but obviously a little closer to the coast, with less shelter from hills. Says how marginal things are. Temp has gone down from 6.5c at midday to now 4c though so fingers crossed it still keeps going that way. Hopefully convection will keep happening and pep the precipitation up over the beacons. Probably the other way around though!

Strange shower, looked heavy on radar but not much fell in the end. Snowflakes in the rain, thats it, but an improvement on earlier.

 

See how on the latest radar picture, the shower literally died over Cardiff and turned into only a light shower.

Photo from the English side, looking across to the Flintshire hils, around Maes Glas, down towards Gwespyr.. notice how the snow coats the top of Gwespyr, but then notice how, towards Talacre the snow line rises in altitude. 

 

More alarmingly, perhaps notice how the snow line is way above 100m on the English side !
