Wales/Cymru Regional Weather Discussion


Recommended Posts

I’ve said it before on another thread and I will reiterate again, don’t get your hopes up with those snow charts for 10th Feb. I understand that some people like to be optimistic on this but the likelyhood is that it will either not run along that trajectory and miss us south or it will push through us along that trajectory pushing the cold back out and it will most likely turn to rain on that leading edge. Ideal situation would be like we had on Sunday but with the cold high maintaining a strong presence over Wales and pushing the low back South gradually whilst we take advantage of that moisture with the cold air in place. Don’t know what you guys think on this but just my opinion from past experience in the West.

12z Oh look it’s a beast,  Gonna hit the south east,  It’s a stonker, quite a feast If it hits the South east!    18z Ok look a Kent clipper It will be brutal, 

Seems to be dying out here now. Definitely a nice surprise though. This last month has been incredibly difficult for me as my mum passed away two days before Christmas. So these snow events have reall

Looking good Wales !! Have to confess I've always had a soft spot for the Welsh, they were very very welcoming to Poles after World War 2.( I'm polish heritage). I used to go a place called

    Check out the Scottish and North West thread there are a few unhappy folk in there this evening because of the bias and IMBYism 😂 yeah it's a joke Wales doesn't seem to exist in their eyes!

    To them we in Wales don't exist as being in the country. I saw Jay's post earlier. If we post that snow will affect Wales they go crazy. Abit embarrassing really. How old are they. They need to go back to school or shall we post a big dummy in the mod thread when things go wrong. The mods would run a million miles🤣😆😆😆.

    Someone from the southeast said earlier "The joys of trying to get snowflake in the UK!". Erm, excuse me but many of us have had some snow in the UK, even today in some areas! Unbelievably irritating southeast bias! Because of course there's nothing to the UK beyond London and the Home counties! eh!

    I havent been in the model thread for years and dont intend too because of things like that, shame really because there is allot to be learned from some very knowledgeable people on here. If its not a Kent clipper or a Thames streamer then it dont count. 

    On another note, some very nice looking snowfall charts for eastern parts of N England and Scotland.

    If the charts don't show snow for them they dismiss them and call it a downgrade, the toy throwing and tantrums from them the last few days has been quite hilarious, you honestly wouldn't think that they are adults! 😂

    One event we could miss out maybe 2 events we could miss out, but to have several events lined up .Northerly this weekend possible outbreaks of snow ,Monday Tuesday snow again possible from frontal snow Thursday frontal snow. Met outlook very promising periods of snow.Yes I'm drunk on Optermism. Enjoy the next 10days.

    Just had a look in some of the other regionals, quite a lot of people moaning about the southeast bias in the mod thread. Speaks volumes as far as I'm concerned, never seen so many kicking off about it, and rightly so! Mods let it slide every year though.

    There’s still a lot of things need to fall into place, it’s true.  But once the cold air is brought in from the east, we can expect a snowy breakdown as the warmer Atlantic air attempts to push it away later.  It’s Wales that will be on the receiving end of that.  Of course, it might not happen, but all the indications are there at the moment.

    it'll be interesting to see how it all develops ... 
    We do have a lot of high ground .. and the blend of the Atlantic and Easterly cold battle can bring us some really nice scenes .. even if short lived , ~ last Sunday was a decent snow day for us .. and some of that snow is still around in the hills.

    This is likely a very stupid question but what is the difference between the colour in a block and the stripy one?

    The hashed lines represents snowfall ❄️, and the unhashed blocks are rainfall 🌧

    The colours represent the amount of precipitation falling. A general rule of thumb is 1mm of rain = 1cm of snow, but this is not always accurate

    Thanks so much. Still a while a way but that's potentially exciting

    I wonder where the mods live? Let me guess....

    Does it stay cold after the snow or is it back to mild?

    at the moment the breakdown occurs proper with the next front that comes in - but with cold spells that can get pushed back - and the meto think this cold weather is in at least till the middle of the month yet

    Oh look it’s a beast, 

    Gonna hit the south east, 

    It’s a stonker, quite a feast

    If it hits the South east! 

     

    18z

    Ok look a Kent clipper

    It will be brutal, a real stonker

    Oh hey, a Thames streamer, 

    Get the army in, fetch the digger! 

     

    00z

    Oh no, it’s Pete Tong

    The Models must be wrong

    But winter is over, 

    If it doesn’t snow in Dover

     

    06z

    Meanwhile in Wales, the land of only sheep

    The snowdrifts pile up, nearly 20ft deep! 

    The Scots have froze solid and the Irish start skiing, 

    But winter is still over, for Kent only had a dusting! 

     

    12z 

    Its never ‘nailed on’ or ‘snowmaggedon’ for long

    If it doesn’t snow IMBY, then the models must be wrong.

    You can call it a sausage, and talk about your wedge! 

    But please when it does come, bugger off on your sledge! 

     

     

     

     

     

    Haha, very good mate!
