    Most of the snow that did fall has now melted after a spell of rain and a rise in temperature.

    Temperatures this afternoon across Wales are in the range 4 to 8 Celsius which...

    Some parts of Wales have already had a dusting of snow but it looks like we could be in for the first proper snow of the winter later tonight and tomorrow morning!

    Mind you, it's not going to snow everywhere, it will depend very much on where you live and how high you are above sea level. Some places...

    Well first of all, a very Happy New Year to you all!

    Most of us ended up with a white Christmas, although no fresh snow fell in Wales on 25 December.

    We haven't got all the figures in yet but it looks like last month was the coldest in Wales for at least 100 years and for central England, the coldest...

    Happy New Year to you all.

    I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing time, although if family were involved, then I sincerely doubt it! ;)

    This year I completed my first ever Xmas Day Swim at Coney - the first one to have snow on the ground apparently.

    I wasn't sure what to expect but came prepared...

    Well, it looks as if we've seen the worst of the snow for the time being but we could be in for a little bit more on Wednesday.

    Aside from all the chaos the snow causes; it also dramatically alters the landscape - transforming the mundane into something very dramatic.

    It was a quiet weekend - dry and not too cold so ideal for a walk or Christmas shopping but it will be a very different story next weekend as an Arctic blast looks set to bring more snow, ice and freezing temperatures.

    Over the next few days, a ridge of high pressure will keep things largely dry and...

    Well, it was a pleasant change not having to scrape ice off the car windscreen this morning!

    Across much of Wales, temperatures stayed above freezing although Pembrey on the Carmarthenshire coast dipped down to -1 Celsius.

    The air over us today has come from the Atlantic so it is milder & moister but...

    Last night there was another widespread frost with temperatures at Trawscoed in Ceredigion dipping to minus 9 Celsius!

    The cold and icy weather is not everyone's cup of tea but the frost is pretty to look at. If you're fed up with the cold and scraping the frost off your car windscreen - you'll be happy...

    Our immediate world is under snow. Well, large tracts of the the Heads of the Valleys are anyway and, walking with Dylan one morning this week. I found the snow to be the noisiest I've ever known.
