Looking good for team wales today / this eve- Have fun !!

Dyma rai o'm lluniau gaeafol (Dydd Mawrth - Wythnos diwethaf) Here are some of my wintry scenes from Tuesday, last week Lleoliad/ Location: Blaenau Clwyd 230masl  (Between Corwen and Rhuthun)

Some photos from this morning up on the Rhigos between Hirwaun and Treherbert. Here we are around 480-500m asl  it was stunning with amazing views over the Brecon Beacons and beyond. The mountain

Haven't posted on NW in 3 years due to other things in life taking precedent, but having read the model threads recently (I see nothing's changed on there!), decided I'd sign back in to join you all for the rest of winter! Originally from Cambridgeshire but currently reside in Swansea. Had a fantastic winter last year in my previous location in North Staffordshire but I do remember the big snow event which delivered plenty of snow for parts of Wales at the start of March last year! Whilst it's disappointing that the previously snowy looking charts aren't going to materialise, I feel that various components are tilted in our favour for a decent cold spell to occur sometime within the next couple of months.

think you'll have a better chance than me - western and northerly facing parts of Wales will do well with this set up but Tuesday afternoon looks good for a hefty shower or three practically anywhere in Wales

Yep Joe B still convinced that the UK will be covered in the white stuff in the next few weeks - so much that we'll be able to get that famous satellite picture again where the whole country was white

think you'll be fine this week

latest charts - euro 4 always a little more reserved about snow possibilities - so expand the pink areas a tad at least

think the snow showers will beef up a lot more in the afternoon too

Well not expecting anything down here now, esp with day temps of 4-7c predicted all week for my area, shame but hopefully something good will come up and be more successful after this spell!

if anyone really wants to be in some wild weather tomorrow night - head for the beacons and penyfan lol

Rain and summit snow clearing in the early hours then clear spells developing, along with patchy freezing fog in the valleys. A cold, bright start to Monday, but patchy freezing fog in the valleys and also rather cloudy so only limited sunshine. Cloudier in the afternoon with patchy rain, but falling as snow on the summits. Also becoming windy with heavy rain and snow spreading in during the evening. Snow initially over summits, but falling to lower levels, down to 400m later with blizzard conditions developing. 

Heads of the valleys road in the line of fire then at or around 350m - 400m

For Tuesday

Rain, sleet and snow clearing through the early hours then clear spells and snow showers. Bright or sunny spells on Tuesday with occasional snow showers, but frequent showers through the afternoon. Some heavy snow showers at times, with blizzard conditions at times and perhaps some thunder and lightning, especially across western hills. Some fresh accumulations of snow, especially on the tops with many paths icy. Snow most likely above 200m, but to lower levels in heavy showers

Two trough features were on the fax charts, so not out question to see an area of organised showers push through. It's interesting to note a subtle difference between the ECM/GFS Vs UKMO regarding 850hpa temps, the former's have them 1/2 lower. However, at best a transient cover at low levels anyway.

Living in Brynmawr at 348m ASL I usually so well with snow, not seen any lying snow since March. Not sure we are going to see any either this week looking at that map Andy. Kids are dying to go sledging lol

Met Office just have a warning out now for snow/ice from midnight tonight to midday tomorrow - although I think that'll be extended right into Wednesday too - snow accumulations of up to 3cms plus and I should think a bit more if drawn out to Wednesday lunchtime - 200m and above - possible accumulations below that height too - so you being in the crows nest lol at 348m shouldn't worry too much - you may get quite a bit tonight as the front moves through - possibly even blizzard conditions - and then lots of showers packing in which will be mostly snow till Wednesday lunchtime at least

euro 4 can sometimes appear a little conservative with the spread of "pinks" - the beeb usually increase the areas on their maps that'll get hit - so I think we all have a good chance of at least seeing some snow - accumulations will vary but the higher up you are the better chance you have of that - it's not winter wonderland feet of snow this time - but at least some of us will finally break our winter duck lol

Yes some organised showers albeit of rain here on the south coast but sleet/snow further inland are showing for a good few hours tomorrow, is this about the time of any of those troughs are expected?
