Dafydd Lewis took this picture in New Quay this morning. The combination of low pressure, a strong onshore wind and a high tide caused waves to crash over the harbour wall.

It's also been cold with a significant wind chill. Highest temperatures at St. Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan only 5 Celsius. Well below the average of 10 Celsius. Lake Vyrnwy in Powys was even colder with a high of 1 Celsius.

Tonight the strong wind will slowly ease. Tomorrow will be less cold with lighter winds. However, more showers and longer spells of rain, sleet and snow are expected. Most of the snow on higher ground, the hills and mountains above about 600 feet. It should become drier and brighter later in the day with some sunshine. Highs typically 7 to 9 Celsius.

On Good Friday more rain will be followed by brighter skies and heavy showers. Over the rest of the Easter weekend, sunshine and April showers sums it up. It will also be breezy at times and feeling chilly with top temperatures between 7 and 10 Celsius. The weather will improve on Sunday but more wind and rain is expected on Bank Holiday Monday.

So a chilly start to April this year but despite the rain and wintry showers, have a happy and peaceful Easter.
