Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 40,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

My brother took these somewhere in Snowdonia on the 28th. I've asked him where exactly but he hasn't got back to me yet. He's at uni in Bangor so I'd imagine not far from there. Might have to go see him and take my skis! Must be something skiable round there.

Edit: Apparently it's Ffynnon Lloer (bl00dy stupid place name or what... Toofy Grin ). Apparently it was quite icy but they have had a load more since.

I think they were taken more for artiness than to show the snow conditions though...





The Ogwen valley on the A5. Its lovely around there. It always gets the most snow if there has been a dump.

Shropshire Hills white over this morning. Sadly I'm not fit to be having a go other wise it would have been tempting. My niece who lives next to The Lawley reckons there was quite a bit.

surfski, blimey! We certainly didn't get that down here. There was dusting at 1000ft upwards, but I don't imagine that even Pen y Fan has any real depth.

AndAnotherThing.., I'm guessing there would be even more snow but very wind blown. Looking from my house this morning there looks to still be a very good cover of snow on the nearby hills and last night temperatures was just below freezing so the snow should stay up there for a few days.

This is roughly the location where i took the photos and video.

Its near here where i go snow kiting too.

The snow only eased off around 7pm last night so i reckon it will be even deeper than when i was up there around 3pm.

surfski, Cool - that's not so high I'm guessing, so even more on the tops Happy

We had a drive around South Shropshire today and came back via the Long Mynd and Church Stretton. The hills were white over in places but the reads didn't look so bad....



^^ Always trust the sign "closed due to snow". Will save 1/2 mile of reversing down a single track road.



^^ A few locals who were engrossed with licking the salt of the road. They looked in really good condition so couldn't be lacking in too much.




^^ Caer Caradoc in the center. Still waiting to score first tracks in the gullies. Next Winter Happy

British Summer Time here in S Wales, not that you'd know it this morning.

The temperature plummeted overnight and a biting wind and fequent downpours accompanied me on my morning walk earlier.

The Met Office is calling for wintry showers in the Brecon Beacons today and below freezing temperatures overnight

Quote:

TUESDAY 15 MAY 2012

Weather
A bright day, with plenty of sunshine and a few showers. Showers may turn to sleet or snow above around 600 metres in the morning, becoming confined to the summits later in the day. Showers will ease through the afternoon, and becoming largely dry by evening. It will feel cool in fresh northwesterly winds.

Visibility
Generally excellent, although good in any showers and moderate or poor in any sleet or snow.

Hill fog
Occasional patches around the summits, mainly in the morning associated with showers.

Maximum winds above 400m
Northwesterly 40 mph.

Temperature
Valleys Plus 4 Celsius rising to plus 13 Celsius.
800 m Plus 1 Celsius rising to plus 4 Celsius.
Freezing level 700 metres rising to 1000 metres.

May turns for the first time in the Brecon Beacons for me could be on at daybreak tomorrow.

Fingers crossed.
