Poll hill mobile transmitter Heswall

Yes, the Water Tower! Of course there wasn't a cell base station when I lived there (1950s/60s).  I remember watching when the Water Tower had its "roof" put on in 1960.

ah yes I forget about the water tower... actually a reservoir still exists, but it's on the opposite side to the mobile phone transmitter. 

strong winds and heavy rain now.

Now continuous moderate rain and temp down to 2.3C. Light breeze.

Must be the wind that is killing the chances for us-any breeze will mix the air too much. It'll turn back to rain further N&E soon too as the wind picks up from the west.

Indeed, it's raining even above 4-500m in North Wales at the moment.

As I say I can well believe that. Extra height wouldn't make the slightest difference here.

GFS sees the wind speeds pick up from here on in further N&E so only the summits and much higher elevations will be seeing snow soon I would have thought.

Just sat in my living room in complete darkness and silence watching it come down. Strangely relaxing and therapeutic.

To be fair the mountain forecasts said snow would only fall above 5-600m so Im not surprised. Even Moel Famau might miss the snow.

1 or 2 cm of snow fallen here at 210m asl, still falling whilst looking out the window with the SLR.
