After last week's heavy rain and gale force winds, the sun has been shining for the start of the Royal Welsh Show today.

I'm up here all week and with temperatures rising as high as 22 Celsius, some people are already donning their shorts, T-shirts and flip flops.

Unfortunately, it's not going to stay dry all week and North West Wales has had quite a soaking today with a warning of heavy rain in place until 6pm today:

The rain is going to spread further south and east across Wales over the next 24 hours. The rain is expected to turn lighter and more patchy tonight but pep-up again tomorrow as it spreads north across south, mid and east Wales.

However, the North West, Pembrokeshire and the west coast should be drier and brighter.

So, if you're coming to Llanelwedd, Builth Wells for the show, come prepared and bring your waterproofs and an umbrella.

Wednesday and Thursday will bring a mixture of dry weather, sunny intervals and showers. The showers hit and miss but if you catch one it could be heavy and prolonged with thunder.

At the moment, the weekend looks generally drier with signs of high pressure moving in for the start of August.
