There's a big contrast in the weather across Wales today - The north east dry but the south west very wet and some torrential rain, especially in Pembrokeshire. The Met Office has issued an amber alert.
As much as 50 to 100 mm of rain, (2 to 4 inches), is likely over the next six hours or so with a risk...

I love a good food festival. Something about wandering aimlessly around a small town or village, the air filled with tempting cooking smells, colourful stalls and celebrity chefs all vying for attention.
Last weekend one of the last agricultural shows of the season at Llandyfaelog in Carmarthenshire...

Autumn arrived with a vengeance in Wales last night with heavy rain and strong to severe gale force winds buffeting the country.
The highest wind gusts recorded were 69mph at Mumbles Head in Swansea and also at Capel Curig in Snowdonia. The wind was strong enough to damage or even bring down a few trees...

It's been a wet few days in mid and north Wales with some flooding. At Lake Vyrnwy in Powys, 189.4mm of rain has fallen since the beginning of the month, more than than the February average which is 138.7mm.
Some rivers are swollen and at the time of writing there are three flood warnings in the lower...

We've had a respite from the heavy rain today but there is more to come this evening.
The Met Office has issued a warning for southern counties from Swansea across to Cardiff, Monmouthshire and The Valleys.
Another 15 to 20 mm of rain is likely with 30 to 40 mm on higher ground and given that the ground...

I've decided I don't like January - it's dark when you wake up and dark when you go home at night. Roll on Spring I say and hopefully some better weather too!
The rain I promised yesterday has well and truly arrived with warnings of heavy rain up and down the country.
In the 12 hours leading up to midday...

Last year was drier than average in Wales. Dennis Smith from Llandeilo recorded just 39 inches of rain over 12 months but it's going to be anything but dry over the next few days...and we could expect to see up to 6 inches falling on higher ground.
It is however going to turn milder (which will help...

One of the biggest problems the families struggled with wasn't the animals, and it wasn't the tough dawn to dusk work routine. It was the food. With limited supplies, generous helpings of offal, no supermarket to pop out to and every meal having to be prepared from scratch, Alisa and Catrin faced a...

The rain will clear early tomorrow and it will brighten-up with a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers. Temperatures 18 to 20 Celsius with a moderate west to south-westerly breeze...

Have you ever wondered where some of the words, phrases or sayings that we now use actually originated?
For example, many of us often light bonfires in our gardens. But where did the word come from? In the Middle Ages it was quite normal to dig up people's bones after 30 or 40 years in order to make room...

The rivers are swollen throughout Wales thanks to all this rain.
I've had these photos in from reader Colin Roberts who says, "This is the river Dee in Llangollen which passes the bottom of our garden:"

We've had plenty of rain recently which is not unusual at this time of year. In fact November is the third wettest month of the year in Wales with an average of 156.8mm.
But on 3 Nov 1931 it was very wet in Trecastle in the Brecon Beacons. Over 180mm (7 inches) of rain fell in 24 hours with flooding...
