Snowing heavily here now but still that fine powdery stuff and the wind is still wild at times. Bit warmer than it has been at -2c

Nearly stopped here for now, but there's more coming in from the south east over the Bristol channel. Could be a day for radar watching and nowcasting!

Anyone got any thoughts on the milder weather forecast for Sunday and into next week? It would be nice to see the snow preserved by a prolonged period of colder weather!

Radar showing this next batch intensifying into an organised front. Massive change in an hour and probably another 4-5 hours of this to come - maybe more!

I agree in where the met should e be issueing more warnings, snowfall here just as bad or worse than yesterday with a lot more to come.

Also I have few snow shovels which I bought the other day, if anyone wants to buy them, I'm located in Penylan, PM if you're interested.

If this keeps going for hours there's going to be major problems.

Lol the current main blob looks like skirting WNW over swansea , giving a few flakes maybe ..

Snow poverty on the streets around here.

Not a single snowman to be found .

Cap in hand begging for some scraps to be sent over from the east .

Some people actually attempting to defect to the East , though the Swansea council robowarden is having none of it.

The streets are parched with all the salt , very grim and grey here but never mind as we have a northerly forecast in 384 hours time on the GFS ...

we got 5ft drifts here - ridiculous scenes of carnage - and i'm sure I saw a polar bear while I was just walking the husky - and the graigerhorn is now closed to all traffic and the ski lift is in and ready for you wonderful sledgers and skiers/snowboarders:cold::cold::D:yahoo::rofl::cold:

Well that last hour or so of snow has covered a few surfaces (roof of the outhouse, pathways)  the wind was keeping clear last night, which is great! The thaw may be due to kick in Sunday, but what an end to winter!

Someone mentioned (I think J10) it's because of the Foehn effect? We're in a rain/snow shadow because of the direction the precipitation is moving in

 

How unlucky

Why do we continue to torture ourselves ?

Saying that , I think I’m over it now , expectations are flat on the floor so the only way is up from here .

We have taken an absolute kicking from Cardiff , lying on the floor clearly defeated , yet they are giving no quarter ...

Mercy , mercy, can’t you see the white flag ??

What did we do wrong ??

That is of course the most sensible and likely reason why , yet in the past we have had snowfall from a very similar direction.

Again though there was a variance but not to this famine or feast degree .

I think previously the precipitation was just so heavy it didn’t “ dry up “ .
