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

    Graupel / Rain here now despite temps being -0.2 and dewpoints -2.7c - upper temperatures must be too warm now. Snow melting away rapidly

    Looks like it headed way further east than expected. Snowing here most of the day but struggling to settle, we’re unfortunate here especially given that we had established cold over us all week! Again if it was night we would’ve done alright, it’s probably the reason why we did good a few weeks back although it wasn’t as cold.

    🤷🏻‍♂️

    Well it's snowed for a few hours in Rhayader, few cms of soft powder. At least the cold snap has produced a bit of the white stuff, was starting to think we would miss out. River Wye got a few ice patches on it, temp not been above freezing since Wednesday. 

    Apologies for the quotation, don't seem to be able get rid of it!

    With that last shower exiting Wales, think that marks our end to this cold spell and the end of seeing any decent chance of settling snow. Yes we could see some cold spells in a few weeks but seeing any disruptive snow is going to be very unlikely. This winter has been full of great synoptics-lots of blocking to our north but ultimately for the UK it has lead to only a decent cold spell right at the end of the winter, which failed to bring us any sustained and substantial snowfall. 

    We did get one day of settling snow and few days of falling snow however. Now Looking forward to the spring warm up but we have a week of unsettled weather to get through first which could possibly bring some extreme gusts to coastal areas.

    I remember it a lot deeper than it is now with carp and rudd swimming around. Knew where the kingfishers nested and the boggy area as you walked up on the left were loads of frogs and newts. 

    Used to walk there from the top of Rhiwbina.

    Thats all folks

    until the next time

    So, time to enjoy this snow tonight whilst it's still here, albeit briefly, but when do we think we'll have another snow event? Hints that next weekend is looking much colder again after the coming weeks milder interlude.
