    VERY INTERESTING!

    HIRLAM is available to view here: https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/hirlam.php

    Shows perhaps more snow than forecast overnight tonight for central areas of Wales and then more snow towards western parts tomorrow evening and night - so perhaps less of a snow shield here in Carmarthenshire...

    Higher risk for southern England and areas like London. (Doesn’t decrease risk here btw)

    low isn’t being modelled correctly according to Chris who is very good. 

    I think he's wrong because if they forecast just one snowflake to hit London then there would be a double Red warning out by now.:hi:

    Just need to keep an eye on the development of this low now and compare it to model forecasts. The models do not control the weather remember! But we are close now, almost there! 

    Check the radar over France if you have time and compare it’s positioning to the models.

    It was snowing on and off almost all day in Neath where I work but at about 4.30pm an almost blizzard came in and it just kept snowing and it stuck fast.  When I arrived in Swansea (by train) snowing then and it has stuck in the city centre.  My work (Neath Port Talbot council) has already told all staff that we are closed from noon tomorrow and all day Friday. 

    I've worked there for 11 years and that's the first time they have announced the building will be closed before the snow arrives!!  Can't wait...wonder if I'll even make it to work in the morning??? lol

    At last a council with some sense......

    I agree with that chart above. Snow starting light in South Wales tomorrow morning before picking up for rush hour lasting into the night. South Wales in the firing line again for more snow Friday, so an interesting 48 hours to come!

    Still nervous about tomorrow I’ll be honest. 

    I know it’s high confidence now but seen so many go wrong!

    excited but nervous ? can’t say it doesn’t look great though

    Stalling front to return back south ?

    Super Steve Murr seems to think so .

    This would be similar to historic events also .

    Wow could this really turn into that 3 day steak ? blizzard Andy foretold of ....

    Could this be the one time where Andy the king of all rampers with so many of those cheeky low res charts is actually out ramped by the weather itself ?

    For those that remember the 82 snow what was the lead up like to that? Do you guys think it will be similar? Really hoping to see something significant. Have been watching the forum and checking Twitter and forecasts like a hawk.

    Accumulation pattern fairly similar to the Hirlam model posted earlier - perhaps a bit high as those are for tomorrow only - here are the 48 hour accumulations predicted up to Friday lunchtime: https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/hirlam.php?ech=48&mode=45&map=430

    Compared to the Arpege model which has less in the west but more in the east / mid Wales: https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/arpege.php?ech=48&mode=45&map=300

    Either way, looks like quite an eventful couple of days coming up!

    Freezing rain is the other thing to look out for, Hirlam shows rain in western parts in the early hours of Friday.
