    -5C here when I checked at 0630 hrs. Snow packed ice paths and side roads everywhere. Rain on top of this lot will be treacherous for road users. I've seen a lot of the valleys over the past few days and have been wondering the same thing about the Met Office temps and the actual temps around snow covered South Wales.

    I always thought warm air goes up over cold air and rain that falls through cold enough air, turns to snow. Are we actually going to return to mild weather so quick that it just rains?

    there is a wedge of milder air coming in for around 24 hours - then this - yes normally if rain does fall in these conditions it can lead to freezing rain and thick ice on the ground - no warnings for that so I presume the milder air just walks in and warms things up this time

    I'd say that's more for the lying snow which when the rain hits it will turn to ice, so for places with no snow there shouldn't b a problem

    Well what a start to winter, 3 snow events in South Wales already. Today it seemed unreal to be witnessing rain as the ground was frozen solid with 12 inches of compacted snow, Makes you realise just how difficult forecasting is in our location. A few pics from the upper Swansea and Neath Valleys from the past two days, both places with virtually no snow at the lower end, and an amazing amount further up. How lucky are we to live here?

    So the cold spell is over......for 24 hours! 

    Well not quite the the depth of cold we have had this weekend but certainly cold enough for snow and some settling snow above around 150-200m 

    Heads of the valleys and the Beacons look like getting a few more cms wed night into Thursday.

    anybody for a WHITE XMAS - gfs 12z looking good for one today

    gfs-2-288.png?12

    major storm on boxing day with blizzards in places

    gfs-2-300.png?12

    gfs gone a little nuts with a 965mb Hurricane over us boxing day onwards - but here's the thing - today's run means only about 5 days in milder air from next Monday before mr. freeze returns to pay us another visit:cold:

    really looking like winter will behave more like winter this season

    When everyone was going on about their amazing storms a couple of months ago the Pontypridd Storm Shield held firm - wasn't expecting that at all.

    Shwmae. Sorry sneaking into your thread from over here in Suffolk (although maybe I qualify as I do come from Dinas Powys near Cardiff and Mum & Dad still live there! :)).

    Anyway.... this tweet caught my eye - a wonderful example of the famous 'Pembrokeshire Dangler' in all its' glory this afternoon!!

    Yes, I get a bit cross with the model thread. some seem to just argue with almost any chart or more "expert" opinion and totally confuse the whole situation.  Then others just costantly want to look two weeks ahead into FI when no-one really has a clue!

    I honestly don't know y people bother with the models after 3 days there is no point, some times I wonder y I bother checking the weather forecast as well. I looked on BBC yesterday morning and the forecast was a good chance of rain in the north and dry but cloudy in the south. Well I can tell u now it rained all day yesterday and I live in the south
