    Same here Jay. Just needs to drop another 50 miles. Their automated forecast shows heavy rain for here. Still hoping, but not expecting.

    Sunday snow prospects much better for SWales front stalls over Brecon so colder air drawn in from the north and mild sector remains to the south.

    At some point this weekend, most likely Sunday, I think snow will fall on the coastal plain in Southeast Wales (the further west of the Vale you go, the less likely that becomes). As for tomorrow, rain progressively turning to sleet and snow seems likely from Caerphilly, Taff's Well, VoG, Bridgend etc. northwards, obviously with the earlier the transition and greater depths the further north and the more elevation you have.

    I also miss out by a matter of miles on Monday🤣

    I can literally see the bypass up to Blackwood from my window, so frustrating it could be that close and get rain here

    This kind of set up could produce up to a foot of snow across the highest ground of Wales i wouldnt be suprised to see some blizzard conditions persisting on the brecon beacons. For coastal areas esp south wales its looking more like rain and sleet

    Wrexham

    Just to clear this up, the written part of the warning information includes all parts of counties which are included, even if just a tiny part of that county is part of the warning zone itself. For example, in Caerphilly county, only the around Rhymney could be a part of a warning zone but not the rest of the county. Even so, in the written part of the warning, Caerphilly county as a whole will be included. If it's confusing for us, imagine how it must be for those in Powys: it stretches all the way from near Swansea right up to near Wrexham. All it would take for confusion to reign would be for just the area near Swansea to be part of a warning zone, yet you could still have people near Wrexham not familiar with how the warnings work expecting snow!

    I think the Met Office needs an overhaul of their warning system because at times, especially when there are multiple overlapping warnings concurrently, it can be as clear as mud for casual users of the site.

    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 Penrhos   back in the 70s and 80s , little Poland as we called it.

    Anyway, good luck guys hope to see some pics over the coming days...

     

    Thank you for these kind words, they made me smile. For a long time the Welsh have been stereotyped as hostile to outsiders, switching to Cymraeg when an English speaker enters a pub and whatnot, but I don't think that could be further from the truth.

    I think the google earth app also gives elevation by just hovering your mouse over the map
