Ahh, I have nothing but fond memories of the run up to Christmas 2010 with over a foot of snow on the ground. Same with 2009 as it happens, with a good 10 cm on the ground after the Bristol Channel streamer in the early hours of the 21st.

But wait, no decent snow since 2010 you say? What about January 2013 and that infamous red warning issued for Southeast Wales? It didn't turn out as phenomenally as we expected but we still got upwards of 20 cm from that, at least up here.

That's true, forgot that one. Hopefully we get a decent amount from showers!

I was working night and had to travel from Cwmbran to caerphilly.  Snow started about 1am, I left work at 01:30 (much to the annoyance of my boss who wanted me to stay) and I only just got home.  Absolutely hammered down

My only (slight) concern is that the high ground of South Wales is currently sapping the showers of their energy, causing them to more or less fizzle out. If this continues, which I don't expect it will all night, then that snow-free zone in Southeast Wales that has been predicted on every run over the last week will actually materialise.

Just had sleet here in Bynea near Llanelli looks like a streamer could set up moisture hitting the presceli hills and causing convection hope they get heavier so they can start turning more to snow

The wind needs to veer to the northwest rather than the west-northwest we currently have, or that feature currently across Montgomeryshire is going to exit Wales through Breconshire and largely miss the southeast.

Time to call it a night, I think. The feature across Mid Wales is heading in the direction of Gloucestershire while what's following behind has the West Midlands in its sights. Meanwhile, the showers currently to the south of the main feature are largely fizzling out before they reach the southeast and besides, what is falling from the sky here in Nelson is now falling as rain. The 12Z GFS is also very insistent on taking Sunday's slider across North Wales and Northwest England.

Another needlessly overhyped non-event here. 10-15 cm? Pah!

I'm going back to sleep too, what a waste of time lol. Don't think I'll be seeing snow anytime soon!

Woke up to rain and temperature of 3.4c, looks like they didn't get as cold as expected, I wonder why?  Will be a wet day as a result. Shame!

Ridiculous mate, typical British weather forecasting it's like when do they ever get it right.

 

When it rains.

I’d hang fire. Temperatures still dropping, getting colder through the morning, that next band about to hit Cardiff should be snow. 

Although welsh hills are taking the oomph out of the showers.
