It’s my last day at the Eisteddfod in Llandow today and once again I’ve had a great time, meeting people from all over, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for me to practice my Welsh.

I’ve met a few famous people on the Maes this week including Cerys Matthews, former band member of Catatonia, and was lucky enough to have my photo taken with her yesterday. 

Weather-wise, we’ve seen a big improvement recently with high pressure bringing plenty of sunshine and rising temperatures.

Yesterday Cardiff was the hot spot in Wales with a top temperature of 24.8 Celsius, 75 Fahrenheit; making it the warmest day of the month so far.

As a local boy from Barry, I thought I’d pop into the Vale of Glamorgan stand and say hello to the staff there who are promoting the area.

Outside, there is a surf simulator run by the Southerndown Surf School. I didn’t have a go but it looks great fun and is a good way of improving your balance! 

Today will be the hottest and sunniest day of the week in Wales. I wouldn’t be surprised if somewhere reaches 26 Celsius although some coasts will be refreshingly cooler with sea breezes.

Over the weekend, there is more fine and warm weather to come but not completely dry as a trough will bring some cloud and showers.

Saturday will be fine but high cloud will make the sunshine hazy.

It will also be breezier with a fresh south-easterly breeze on Gower and the Pembrokeshire coast.

Temperatures tomorrow not quite as high as today, but still warm, in the range 20 to 24 Celsius.

Tomorrow evening it will be dry but showers are possible in Pembrokeshire and overnight these will become a little more widespread.

Sunday will be cloudier with some rain and showers in places. The showers could be heavy perhaps with thunder but still with some dry and bright weather as well.

Sunday will be slightly cooler but feeling warm in any sunshine, highs 18 to 23 Celsius with lighter winds. 

So Saturday will be the best day of the weekend for a picnic or barbecue, but make the most of it.

Next week looks more unsettled again with low pressure over the Atlantic bringing rain and showers.

And finally, we’d love to know what you’ve have been up to in Wales this summer and share your photos with us on our summer in Wales Facebook page www.facebook.com/bbcsummerinwales.
