    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

    I suppose anything extra is a bonus, after all we were expecting nothing today.

    We'll be ok mate, they're saying 1-2cm low ground and up to 7cm over the hills. You should do well.

    It's not a radar fault so to speak, it's that the air is so dry beneath the cloud that the snow is evaporating before it reaches the ground. As the precip becomes heavier and the air beneath less dry, it should start to reach ground level. 

    Whats the different with the air in the south then?

    Fine powdery type snow falling now, lots of it but different to what was falling earlier (which was larger flakes but not as much). Starting to dust (like icing sugar) on most surfaces

    It's slowly warming up and becoming less dry from the south.

    Coming down nicely here but very fine flakes. Covering all surfaces now other than main roads.

    However can see it starting to lose intensity as it approaching us. The yellows turning to greens etc. The Vale of Glamorgan looks like the area holding best intensity while being east enough to avoid less cold air.

    Can we all just agree that easterlies are boring for Wales 90% of the time? 

    Roll on a late winter northerly or north westerly. Who wants boring old easterlies?
