    I know that white lines indicates snow, and the background colour is the amount of precipitation, but what does the purple lines indicate?

    So Sunday early hours looks snow covering possible for east Wales.Monday Tuesday snow flurries possible especially east Wales. Wednesday a change to N Easterly wind which originates from Russia.Dry very cold 0 c +1c if you lucky.-10 c  possible at night time in Welsh cold spots. Saturday possible switch to SWest wind,but that's a long way off.So wrap up warm a bone chilling very cold week.

    At least it's dry I guess, bit of a crap cold spell in my opinion. I'd rather have a marginal set up with a chance of snow rather than dry and cold.

    Hopefully with the cold air in place for longer it will help to produce more snow when the Atlantic does eventually start it’s battle to break through. The Atlantic always wins in the end but cold air is stubborn to shift so hopefully a big dumping before the rain and milder air comes in

    GEM still going for a snowy interlude Thursday

    It also brings some snow in on Tuesday to S Wales. GFS back to being too progressive as it loves to do, but the models won’t have this correct till Tuesday at the earliest.

    So many different options still for Thursday next week.  GEM as posted above is best for snow.  GFS is snow to rain and ECM has nothing teaching us at all.  Fascinating to watch it unfold day by day, it’s given me something to do with my 2 weeks off work, whilst in lockdown 😂

    We have heavy Wet snow falling this morning which was a nice surprise. Hopefully the precipitation tonight is further West than forecast, will keep me happy then, otherwise it will be quite a boring cold spell. Having snow cover could really help us hit record breaking cold minima, without it, it's impossible.

    GEM is the run to bank this morning!

    Daytime Max of 1c in Cardiff is the highest temp between tomorrow and next Monday (15th) with a ‘beast from the east’ arriving at day 9/10 to top it off.

    Tuesday is interesting. A split in the models but GFS, Icon and GEM all flirting with risk of snow in far south wales. Worth keeping an eye on the next few days.

    Before then, MetOffice text forecast for Wales mentioning rain increasingly turning to snow tonight in places. 

    Longer term - good trends again this morning if we want the cold extended. GEM being the snowiest but ECM also staying cold, but drier.

    Still all up in the air regarding significant snow to Wales next week. Some models show the chance of snow increasing by the end of next week still but could be pushed south or north and could just be plain old rain.

    Bitterly cold easterly. Heavy seriously cold rain 4.2mm in 4 hours. 

    DP 1.6 

    Temp 3.9 Windchill 1.2 

    I'd much rather cold and dry than cold and wet. 2nd change of clothes already. 

    I'm going to have to invest in handwarmers for the quad and waders. The fields are completely waterlogged. Perhaps a canoe might be a better option!

    Snowy surprises will pop up in this set up I'm sure. Precipitation charts are rarely right at 24 hours. Get the cold in first as they say and we definitely have that for at least 4-5 days maybe more. If we do see some it may not go anywhere for a while. Fingers crossed. It's gonna feel bitter that's for sure. Good luck everyone hope we all get a bit of snow to go with the extreme cold.

    There's  so much chopping and changing a.t.

    m. in the model output because it cannot cope with zonal reversal due to strat warming.For me I'm only looking at fax and radar they seem to be more reliable.

    So thursday looks like the battle ground day , will the front push into wales before the high pressure swipes it away. The ECW says no but the GEM/GFS says yes. Who will win. I dont think it will get here.

    GFS 6z has just thrown a 24 hour staller over Wales for Thursday. Marginal upper air temps but could deliver!
