Wales/Cymru Regional Weather Discussion

Recommended Posts

Been crazy up here in tonmawr, been very fine snow since 3. But starting to accumulate (4/5cm) with some drifting occurring. Winds have been really strong so proper blizzard conditions. All in all very surprised given that port Talbot/neath/Swansea have very little. However my elevation of 180m is obviously helping.  Let’s hope that chuck of heavier PPN keeps on heading north west for the lowland areas around here can join the action.

It's starting to look quite promising here at Mumbles, Swansea due to the heavy snow and that it is sticking! :yahoo:  But it was and is extremely cold so wrap up warm!  :cold:

Been thinking about you today... x Hard 'bloomin' work feeding animals and you must have had a battle today with water? 

I've been using a planter tray to give the birds water and I've emptied it (and knocked the ice out) 4 times today as it froze so the birds could have a drink!!!

I even saw a blackbird bathe in it this afternoon... He was a BRAVE boy... lol... 

You deserve a warm fire :D  Mine's been lit all day! I've waited 20yrs to get a log burner and watch snow fall at the same time, while sitting next to it keeping cosy x

Thank you ! 

Yes it’s been blooming hard and very cold ... I doubt the milk will be collected tomorrow as the road is too bad . I’ve never seen cows shiver before and they couldn’t wait to get back to their nice cozy shed . 

I think we have a lot of birds camping in the sheds atm 😂 there’s a water butt in there and a tap dripping steadily but it’s the only unfrozen one now . 

The open fire is lit and it’s cosy 😊, and the elements are raging outside . 

There’s something quite lovely about weather like this ... scary too . 

Keep safe everyone .

had an additional 3 inches in the last hour. This is a significant event.

the fact that wales smashed the coldest march day on record is awesome. Most of wales today was colder that any part of the UK has ever recorded in March. With gale force wind as well.

Not much in Porthcawl either tbh, 2010 would beat this hands down when there was a really decent amount of snow around even on the beach

Just nipped out in the car, one side of Llanelli has just a sugar coating (where I am) and the further west you go the more snow you encounter.  I went as far as Pwll and it is lashing it down there with a good covering on all surfaces.  Main roads are treacherous there.  Came back here still nothing with just light little flakes in the strong winds. So frustrating.  Oh well enjoy everyone in the snow, looks like i'll have to wait until next year now for the next opportunity. :sorry:

Wake me up when it's summer. :)

Don't. The point is that Britain isn't Canada, Finland or Hokkaido, we're a fairly small and crowded island whose infrastructure isn't designed for this weather. And I feel that even somebody from Montreal or Helsinki would find the blizzard currently raging outside severe!

And there would justifiably be some p****ed off voters if we spent millions on snowploughs etc that would be used every blue moon

it'll have to snow for 4 days, with only a few breaks, for it to be anywhere near 82. some places will match it though, like Pontypridd, cos there's a poster here saying he's getting close to 50 cms. if we ALL get close to that, it'll be 82 like. if not, still epic.

it's absolutely mad here - and that really stupidly heavy stuff is targeting us now too - omg - our bungalow will be wiped off the map

Are these really heavy fronts starting to pivot> now or am I just fooling myself, visiting friends in Bridgend and it has not been too heavy so far but those fronts look like they are pivoting towards mid glam now

Oh yeah 2010 beats this hands down we had significant snowfall (30cm if I remember correctly) which I haven’t experienced since then. Not really expecting much more to be honest from this spell of snow. Unless that band of heavy PPN reaches here.

The drifting of this powdery stuff is incredible! Reminds me of Norway and skiing :cold::)
