I don't mean to single out anybody in particular but this negativity is both baffling and tiresome. It is still moving north and it is beginning to pivot: look at what the eastern part of it over France is doing. Yes, I admit it's arrived a little later than most of us had expected but fundamentally, nothing has changed at all.

People were saying in work that it would come by 11 am but i said there was no chance of that , it was always coming after 3 for me and thats why i never looked at the radar in work .

Moderately heavy snow here and settling on all surfaces.

Couldn't agree more.

11? Yes, that was far too early. I also feel that schools in the Valleys overreacted slightly by closing soon after lunchtime. Like I said, it has arrived a bit later than expected, and actual falling snow was delayed by evaporation for an hour or so, but it was always meant to be an evening event.

Throwing it down here, only really started like it meant it about 15 minutes ago, but everything except the roads are white 😊

It's not negativity it's viewing what the radar is showing. It's an observation not a critisism.. We will soon know 🙂

Precipitation fading from the west and some gaps developing across north Devon, still snowing lightly though near Porthcawl and has stuck a bit too, a dusting nothing more but nevertheless it's nice to see ❄️❄️❄️❄️😊

Well, I'm looking at presumably the same radars as you (Met Office and Netweather), and I'm watching the system move slowly north with the western end moving northwards at a slower pace than the eastern side, which signifies the beginning of the pivot. Regarding the decay in intensity, this is inevitable to an extent when a moisture-laden front in our climate runs into stationary cold air as cold air saps moisture. Those yellow accents currently over Southern England will make it to South Wales, and they're likely to be somewhat reinvigorated by the high ground here. The precipitation to the south of Wales is indeed weakening but, due to the pivot, it will soon begin to feed in from a southeasterly direction.

So try not to panic. 🙂

I have a hedgehog cam in my garden and have had to turn it off otherwise I'll be bombarded with images all night.  I have set it to take photos at 10 minute intervals.

I'd say the heaviest snow for south wales will be between 9 and 12, my bold prediction 😁

It's absolutely chucking down here in Tredegar.  Started very light about 4.30pm, had to go to Merthyr and got heavier as I headed there.  Came back and my road in my street already had a covering 😁❄️❄️

Steady snow but not settling in the valley yet.

I'm sure there are also a lot of false echos on the radar o,o

I do understand this having been on this site for 10 years but I've also seen similar situations. My glass is still half full dude ;)

In llanishen which is north cardiff so within the Amber zone. Side streets totally white and snow coming down nicely. From what I see on the met office the heaviest precipitation is for the next 3 or 4 hours. Think south cardiff struggling to get a dusting at the moment but that should change soon
