At Capel Curig in Snowdonia over 50mm (two inches) of rain fell yesterday with some flooding in the Conwy Valley between Llanrwst and Trefriw but today it is much drier and mild. The air over us has come all the way from the tropics but as it crosses the sea it cools forming low cloud, mist, fog and...

It's been quite mild recently with westerly winds but there is a change on the way over the weekend. An active cold front will move south across Wales tomorrow bringing a spell of heavy rain and gusty winds followed by colder air from the Arctic.
The rain may turn to snow on the mountains in the north...

Last week we were shivering with cold easterly winds from Russia but this week it's a different story.
High pressure over the Atlantic means north-westerly winds for the UK so it's going to be milder than recently with temperatures staying above freezing.

The gritters in Wales are gearing up for a busy time. There's no snow at the moment but some is expected by morning and we're in for a wintry mix of weather over the next 24 hours with rain, snow and some freezing rain too.
Freezing rain is where rain falls onto frozen ground, turning roads and pavements...

Last night temperatures fell as low as minus 8 Celsius near Presteigne in Powys but despite the cold it has been dry today with most of Wales enjoying some sunshine apart from the far south east and Monmouthshire.
It was also good flying weather today. Hywel Meredydd Davies took this picture from the...

Wales escaped the worst of the snow on Saturday. There was some snow although not everywhere, leaving some people disappointed.
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...

Much of Wales has had a wintry mixture of rain, sleet and snow over the last 24 hours, with most of the snow falling on higher ground.
I'm not expecting much (if any) more snow over the next few days, but the thermals will definitely come in handy as this week it's going to be one of the coldest so...

Yesterday was more like winter should be with sleet and snow in some parts of the country. Most of the snow fell in the Heads of the Valleys area during a heavy downpour yesterday afternoon.
Near Dowlais in Merthyr Tydfil about an inch of snow fell and this caused delays for drivers travelling along...

Today is a special day - St. Dwynwen's Day.
Dwynwen for those of you who don't know, is the patron saint of Welsh lovers.

Will Lewis from Glasbury, Powys sent in this amazing picture, taken on 14 January 2012 over looking Llangors in Powys. This is a photo of Kelvin Helmholtz billows:
The fog or stratus is colder and denser than the overlying air, so the two don't normally mix.
However, if the wind is strong enough...

Thanks to high pressure it was a dry weekend with plenty of sunshine, some cloud, frost and a few fog patches as well. The colder, brighter weather a welcome change after all the wet and windy weather we've had so far this winter!
Temperatures over the weekend fell as low as minus 6 Celsius inland but...

It's certainly felt more like winter today compared to recently. In fact last night was the coldest night of the month so far with temperatures falling as low as -1 Celsius in places with a fairly widespread frost.
There was also a beautiful sunset yesterday evening which would have delighted the...

Last Autumn was the second warmest in the UK for over 100 years and this winter has been generally mild so far as well.
We haven't had much snow and frost so it's no wonder some flowers are blooming much earlier than usual.
A study in Cardiff has revealed that 63 species of wild flowers are in bloom...

I know a lot of people are fed up with the recent wind and rain so I've finally got some good news - the worst is over, at least for a while, anyway...
The wind is easing and the next few days are looking calmer but it was anything but calm last night!
At Capel Curig in Snowdonia a gust of 88 mph was...
