Well it's turned milder recently, the daffodils are blooming, but after a very dry start spring has sprung a leak!
The gardens and allotments have all had a good watering and there is more rain on the way this week but with winds blowing from the south, temperatures will be above average in most places...

We've seen a change in the weather today with moist south-westerly winds bringing milder and moister air in from the Atlantic.

Yesterday I mentioned that it would be a nice morning for a walk in Llandudno and sure enough - it was.
Gareth Pritchard climbed the Little Orme and took this lovely photograph of Llandudno Bay and the Great Orme:
Lots of sunshine there with temperatures reaching a pleasant 9 Celsius.

You may know that the Met Office has decided to scrap its UK seasonal forecasts. I can't say I blame them and personally I think it's the right decision.
I have enough on my plate trying to get the next few days right, and when a forecast does go pear shaped, it is me who has to pick up the pieces and...
Monday 8 March 2010, 16:52I've just returned from a week's skiing in the Alps and thankfully have no broken bones despite a few near misses with the local snowboarders!
Thursday 4 March 2010, 11:08Well, it's been a cold and frosty start for some of us today but it will turn brighter throughout the day.

I'm away skiiing in the Alps currently, so Sue Charles has kindly agreed to step in and keep you up to date with the weather:

I think we can expect a bit of everything this weekend!
Some sunshine, frost and ice. Some rain, a few showers, hail and more snow in places too. It's what we call a wintry mix.
This picture of a snow shower was taken by Rhian Pole this morning, looking North West from Crwbin, Carmarthen over the Gwedraeth...
