Just got back from Haverfordwest and frankly should not have left the house today.  All, and I mean all, the roads are flooding to some extent and the B4329 is almost impassible in places.   Glad I made it back before dark though.  Outside temperature is 0C but only cold rain and wet sleet falling.  Don't really expect this to change overnight but if this rain keeps up there will be disruption to travel tonight.

After a few toy throwing incidents and tantrums in the mod thread today this evening's run have got everybody back in the polar express frame of mind....I really hope we get lucky this year.

Yes today has been awful and I hope nobody got flooded a month before christmas but at least after tonight it looks like we are going to have a week or so to dry out

Went through Llandegla around 2pm this afternoon, sleety snow was falling but very wet conditions. I did see lying snow up towards the Horseshoe Pass though. For us here, an absolute shocker of a day. Relentless rain with odd bits of sleet earlier on.

Dire weather today folks. Haven't had a storm like that here for at least 30 hours!

Awful day yesterday. Steady rain rather than bucketfuls (9.6 mm) but all driven along by a howling NE'ly. Average wind speed of 22.1 mph and a peak gust of 38 mph. I could see a dusting of snow on nearby Plynlimon (752 m).

Currently broken cloud, 3.1 mph NNW breeze, 1.8C, pressure 985.2 and rising.

Well its been an emotional topsy turvy ride in the mod thread the last few days....the trend is there though for something way better than the mild mush feat we endured last year!

Great clear crisp morning. -1.6C on my station. -3C when out in the countryside in the car. Far better than last year so far.

-5.5c in Bute Park this morning. A thick frost and bitterly cold still.

Fingers crossed this is the start of a good Winter for us all.

What a cracking morning. Walked the dogs around 7am, just before the sun popped up. Very hard frost. The colour of the sky was beautiful

My car recorded -7 between Pontypool & Usk. Lowest I can remember since 2010.

The scenery was stunning driving through Monmouth towards the M5.

Was that down through the Wye Valley? I tried to do that in October but was met with an unwarned road closure and diversion so didn't bother returning in November to see the autumn colours. Otherwise, love that area and the scenery is gorgeous.

Yes. That's it. I regularly drive through that area. Stunning. Lovely coating of  hoar frost. Got me feeling proper festive.

not really looking too good right now folks - models have gone right off the boil after so much potential and we're looking down the possible barrel of Atlantic westerly weather for a little bit now - we shall have to see - but for now the snowy beast from the east, north east, north west - isn't coming out to play - Andy over and out

I disagree Andy. From what i understand reading the mod thread (and cutting through dross "I can't believe we're not having a 1947, 1962, 2009, 2010 winter" ad nauseam) there is nothing for cold snow lovers in the immediate future. This mild may last just under a week, with a slow return to more seasonal temperatures, with the potential, if somewhat with low probability at present for blocking to our north towards Xmas and more frosty conditions that we have seen at the start of the month. We're in a better position than last year.

It ain't a 2015 Christmas that's for sure.
