Mumbles in Swansea was one of the warmest places in the UK last Wednesday but it's going to be a long time before we see temperatures as high as 17 Celsius, 63 Fahrenheit again!

It is turning colder today with Arctic winds bringing a big drop in temperature. I'm not expecting any snow in Wales this weekend but some frost is on the cards along with some welcome sunshine.

A cold front has moved down from the north bringing a little rain and introducing colder, clearer air.

Temperatures have dropped but at least we've said goodbye to the gloomy weather which has plagued most of Wales this week.

Saturday will be the best day of the weekend: cold and crisp with bright skies and lots of sunshine.

The wind will ease with temperatures reaching 6 to 9 Celsius in the afternoon.

Tomorrow will be a good day for a walk on the coast, hills or mountains. The air will be crystal clear so you'll be able to see for miles and enjoy the autumn colours. Just make sure you wrap-up warmly.

Saturday night will start dry, clear and cold but it will cloud over with some rain after midnight.

Sunday will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain, heaviest in the north and west. Breezy too and feeling less cold; top temperatures 9 to 11 Celsius with a westerly wind.

Next week will dry-up for a time but more rain is expected on Halloween.

On the other side of the Atlantic, Hurricane Sandy, which hit the Caribbean and Bahamas, is moving north and could hit the northeast USA and eastern Canada next week - bringing severe weather and disruption even to New York!

By the way, don’t forget the clocks go back by one hour on Sunday morning making the end of British Summer Time.
