    Those charts still show no snow or PPN in this area WTF lol i could be green

    This is quite remarkable in its own right .

    That Swansea to Carmarthen area and north - north west somehow manages to avoid getting any snow whatsoever in a full on frontal type storm event .

    I can understand a large variation but this is just plain ridiculous .

    If that snow chart is right I will eat my bobble hat .

    Lol Swansea 0-1 cm - Cardiff HALF A METRE .

    In footballing terms this is like the final score being ........Swansea 0 Cardiff 9 with Swansea hitting the bar and post 15 -20 times , having 6 goals ruled as offside , Cardiff committing a dozen blatant red card offences  ,and probably having a worse ref than that referee from escape to victory .... remember Peles overhead kick ... wow and Ossie dribbling  , proper film ... I digress .

     

    That dry area is really infuriating now but it cannot be right surely .....

    Interesting comment from Ian Fergusson re. possible snow depths 

     

    image.png

    Down comes the snow in North #Somerset... settling instantly as expected. Liquid to snow ratio typically 10:1 but with this type of snow, prob closer to 15:1. Model snow amounts can thus be underplayed (for once!) in this type of set-up.

    Had a look at where my son and daughter live..central tayside and fife ..have red warnings for today and tomorrow

    Did you have a look at the explanation that I linked to? Have linked it below. However I do think that the computer models are generalising just a tad too much, surely the "bugger all snow" regions they are showing aren't quite as cut and dry as all that?

    Just watched BBC forecast, was different to recent days in that I think they have more of an idea on the track, looked to start a little later to me and a lull overnight but then more on Frifay than expected as another front approaches, all of wales was snow over the 36 hour period.  Looked good to me

    not sure any of that will take place now - my fiancé Liza is in something on Saturday called St David Rocks - she'sappearing as a Shirley Bassey Tribute at two brains venues - 4pm The Yard & 8pm The Duke Of Wellington - and there'll be 6 other Brains venues involved plus two other Shirley tributes plus three tom jones tributes plus oher acts plus a stereophonics tribute band - but I've been messaging the promoter who has been working on this for months to let him know that SNOW STORM EMMA will basically knacker anything up over the next 3 - 4 days or so in Wales pretty much - Liza is supposed to be in Bridgend as well as Shirley Bassey on Friday night to do with St David's celebrations but that's looking extremely doubtful - we got a 4x4 - but I ain't rasking life and limb through 2ft plus 4ft drifts for no one or no amount of money

    Just to settle the nerves a little; 

    HIRLAM : More broad snow (Ie even Swansea West Gets 7/8 cm)

    ARPEGE: 5cm West Of Swansea

    EURO4: Likely to be over predicting the effects of the Brecon Beacons. They are a real annoyance but are they really going to wipe out all precipitation on SE to NW trajectory? Unlikely. 

    Met Office automated forecasts also show snow falling for the likes of; Swansea, Ammanford, Carmarthen.

    :rofl: 30-40 min drive east and it's a snow fest!

    I can't believe it, after all the hype and the perfect set up for a dumping the high res models are keep the snow shield over Swans and Carms

    you ain't seeing the bigger picture - euro 4 always UNDERESTIMATES the PRECIP - UNDERESTIMATES it AND WHERE IT FALLS - TAKE IT WITH A PINCH OF SALT - THOSE CHARTS ARE JUST A GUIDE BUT ADD MORE ON ASWELL - then you got your BLIZZARD FROM HELL - OR SNOWY HELL - A GOOD PROPORTION OF WALES IS GONNA GET HAMMERED WITH THIS STORM - HAMMERED in BIG LETTERS

    Yes I notice MO automated forecast is actually showing several hours of snow here instead of being bone dry like it was yesterday...

    Is the automated forecast from their own in house model? I assume so...

    HIRLAM looking decent. I'd be happy with 8cm in snow starved Llanelli

    I do love your enthusiasm Andy. I hope we all get a hammering. I'm in my 20's so don't remember anything special but the snow events that do stick out to me from my childhood happened during March! So roll on tomorrow and Friday
