Well the school closed early...just as it started to rain lightly.  Starting to lose faith and think this is not going to happen with people reporting rain

Now this is strange according to the radar it's been raining here for about 30mins, except when I went outside everything is still dry ?

Yep, l looking out over a wide area at 250m height, it's dry as far as the eye can see...weird

Light rain should turn to snow later.  The main event is not expected until probably after 4:00pm but the ICON is indicating that the snow could continue in some areas until the early hours of Friday*  Someone could get up to 10 hours of snow in that case, but not likely to be me!  At the moment it is still snowing steadily but still light and not settling.  However, we  were not expecting a blizzard, were we.... ?

*nb. not all the weather models are not as optimistic as this....

2.5c in Tenby now and heavy sleet. Looks like a lot of precip to come. With the cold air digging back in and some evap cooling this could turn out alright...

Sent home from school at 1.30pm... Pembs CC call... let's see if it was the right one.

had an updated meto amber warning email stating it could be more of an "evening event" rather than pm - and there's me all dressed up for now lol - met office and beeb sometimes do have a habit of putting the kybosh on situations when calling yellow/amber warnings lol - let's hope this one doesn't go pear shaped because of that too - i still think we could have a decent covering of snow - so as with this winter - patience is the longgggggggggggggggg name of the game

2c in Haverfordwest and still sleet with the odd flake mixed in to wet atm. Temps are falling though just need heavier precipitation.

I'm home in Caerphilly now.  I've been out to put lots of bird seed and suet balls for the birds and my hands are so painful from the cold.  The clouds seem high but the wind is very chilly.

I overheard a guy in work who said the snow will come after dark.  I'm new but as far as I've been told, he's the one who decides when the gritters and snow ploughs go out ?

My timing has been a little off... There is actually precipitation over most of Southeast Wales at the moment but it's failing to reach the ground due to evaporation, something which is common in cold air but I did expect at least some if it to reach terra firma! The moderate/heavy stuff is now fringing onto the coast around Porthcawl, though, so expect it be snowing within the next hour.

My forecast through today and tomorrow:

I was wondering why the radar was showing pink here for the last hour yet it was dry outside.  Didn't think about evaporation
