Wales/Cymru Regional Weather Discussion


Recommended Posts

Even though I'm in the supposedly perfect location at the heads of the valley,the precip is so light and fine,it's barely having an impact. Yes,there's a light covering but considering it's been snowing solid for two hours,it has to be regarded as a damp squid...so far anyway .

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)

Fair dooz to Torfaen council. They've initiated their red warning plan. I've just received the survival package.

Unbelievably marginal for accumulation in Cardiff. City centre - wet snow and wet ground no accumulation. Whitchurch which isn’t too far at all, has a small covering. 1c difference between city centre and outskirts preventing accumulation. 

Very wet here but snow coming down.

Alright, I'm prepared to admit there does seem to be a possibility, but not a guarantee, that some of us will end up disappointed tomorrow. There is more snow on the way but it might not be as heavy as expected, leading to generally light coverings rather than thick blankets.

Time will tell, as always.

Stopped completely now in Aberdare. The snow shower that lasted 10 minutes the other day left way more snow than this event. 

There's no way the second front is going to make it here. As it hits land it's just evaporating further south. 

Not quite sure why we are in an amber zone here. The heavy stuff just hasn't made it out of the south west

sadly looks like the front and pivot are not as expected - as is with snow you can never tell until it arrives

Am still hopeful though that it will intensify later  

am praying

Not negativity, but harsh reality, been snowing for hours but so light with so little progress inland i can't see the next fronts making any progress, game over for us in Pontardawe. To hills at the weekend....

The odd flake blowing around in the wind here. Get the west region TV where I live- and Ian Ferguson just mentioned the fact it's all moving a lot slower than anticipated and it's touch and go whether it makes it to the northern areas of the SW, so doesn't bode well for us.

Unless there's a turnaround, tonight does match the rest of the winter doesn't it? I'll be a lot more dubious about background signals, SSWs, amber warnings and precipitation charts from hereon in. Take a look at the precipitation chart here, completely contradicts all of the others, but actually matches what's happening right now.

Yes as others have alluded too, front is decaying rapidly, slight dusting so far but not expecting much more and in fact places like Swansea with a little height could do better than the valleys. 

I have been watching the front decay about 20 miles south of me all day, which is surprising given some of the models wanted to take the percipitation towards Manchester. 

Awh well onto the next one.

I just watched weather on TV and looks like my prediction earlier that some disagreed with that it stops by 9 to 9.30. Wasnt trying to be negative either just seeing it as best as I could. Cannot imagine many areas had 4 inches as predicted.  

Anyway me I rather weather like we had last June and July but nice to see the snow for kids. Still 6 weeks to go for snow lovers.

There seems to be little doubt now that the front is decaying in situ and besides, the amber warning expires at 9. It's not out of the question that it'll all come together but it's beginning to look less likely.

I apologise to anyone whose hopes I kept high throughout the day. Everything did seem to be going to plan until it just... wasn't. There are also going to be a lot of irritated people tomorrow as many schools have pre-emptively closed.

well, what does this mean for the next 2-3 days, does the lack of pivot and pace of the system alter what comes after Friday ? 
Will these showers behind the system make more of an impact on the UK than the main snow ?

I can c the excuses from the met already, we issued an amber warning due to the snow arriving during rush hour. When did 2-8cm become an amber warning? I've probably got the amount of snow that was forecast for here but I still can't get my head around y it was an amber warning
