    we were spoilt only just under two years ago with the amazing bfte which dropped huge drifts here - a few cms is better than nothing but will come up a little short against that episode

    We weren’t spoilt here, the Beast from the east was the biggest let down that I have witnessed on this forum IMBY of course. This event now will produce more snow here than the beast did. ( Again IMBY) 

    But I am confident although the track may seem further NE it isn’t that far out, cold, dense air over Wales compared to ROI will slow it right down. I said earlier that I don’t expect it to make much inroads past Wales’ border, and I still stand by that! It’s currently -4.9 here after a minimum of -5.8 it’s definitely going to snow folks, absolutely no doubt at all!

    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,

    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

    Met office is still showing rain for here. It hasn't been updated since 10PM, though. Hope I don't wake up to total disappointment.

    Looking at Wundermaps weather stations around Pembrokeshire coasts (Pembroke, Tenby etc.) the temp has flown up 4-5c+ over the last hour or two as the cloud pushes in... 

    Shame really, it's looking like rain/sleet for southern coastal areas judging by this.

    Mine has gone from 4 hrs of heavy snow, to sleet then back to heavy snow and now snow sleet and fog so I wouldn't worry about the automated forecasts. Just look out the window in the morning and hopefully its white

    its gone from -3 to -0.2 since the cloud has rolled over the precipitation is 10 miles away so expect a 3 degrees rise unless your on top of a hill

    Not true, they are biased as they want it all. We will come of the best as it will move more south east and pivot 😉

    net weather radar works things out mathematically - not what is actually happening in that area - so when it says sleet it could be snowing and visa versa
