    well I wouldn't say 100% but maybe more like 99.9% lol:D:cold:

    I try my best to see it like it is but with snow I can sometimes be ever the optimist - but as I get older, more experience enlightens me to the various possible set ups - I certainly try my best anyway - thanks for the compliment!

    It's been spot on today but snow forecasting is a nightmare as the 3 weather apps on my phone show all different temps, heavy/light or no snow it's a nightmare. You're more than welcome to the complement too :D

    I drove up to Hirwaun from Aberdare and then along the Heads of the Valleys road all the way to Tredegar. 

     

    Luckily for me I followed a snow plough from Dowlais Top to Tredegar then nearly got stuck on the slip road (aptly named) 

     

    Anyway Tredegar had around 10- 12" of the white stuff. Incredible scenes and puts our 2-3" on Aberdare to shame! 

     

    On a serious note, with temps in rural wales dropping to -10 tonight tomorrow will be lethal!

    I'm a little shocked how sporadic accumulations are. Been for a drive to blackwood via Risca and back through Ystrad/ Caerphilly/ Bedwas/ Machen. 

    Places with more elevation than me have had virtually nothing- Trethomas, Bedwas, not much in Caerphilly. 

    The only reason I can think of is there are some hills directly to the west of Bassaleg. Otherwise not sure how we've done as well as we have? Don't think I've ever seen us get anything from a marginal event in my memory!

    Blackwood looked stunning by the way!

    My son is sledging in Bassaleg with his cousin. They reckon it's better down there than here - which is unusual. Being in the lee of Machen mountain has made the difference for sure. I was just up on top at 360m and there is over 6" lying and drifts well above that. A different world up there as down in the valley the wet snow is still not settling on all surfaces.

    Yeah. I think had the PPN come from a slightly different direction we probably wouldn't have had such luck. I was shocked though- Caerphilly end of Machen- zero, half a mile further down the road (and lower down) there was more snow. Really interesting to see the snowline so visibly!

    Is the front due to sink at all or just head SE? If so, we look to be in a bit of a bowling alley with no PPN?

    Is it me, or has it pivoted completely?  Looking at radar the greeny bits seem to have swirled back round.  Still snowing steadily.....

    Looking at radar I'm in a no snow zone but it's still snowing here lol albeit really fine stuff! I've been out and yup a foot of it is down. Not sure if any more to come now but what a day although most disappointed at  not being able to get to Cardiff ?

    It's been snowing here all day, but instead of accumulating, it's melting.

    I can just about see my husband's footprints on the block driveway that he made around 11am.  They are disappearing, not because they are being filled in, but because the snow around them is melting.

    I can usually see all of Caerphilly below me, but not at the moment as the cloud is so low.

    Area of snow moving onto South Wales now. Probably hitting Cardiff soon. Hopefully the precipitation doesn’t stay in channel. Could give a covering with those precip rates.

    32cm and counting - Snowing heavily again, (but hasn't really stopped all day!). Not sure what the final total will be, but easily the most snow i have experienced in one day.
