We've all enjoyed some lovely weather this week with plenty of sunshine and temperatures rising as high as 25 Celsius this afternoon but will it last over the weekend?

Well, I can promise more fine and warm weather but there's a change on the way and not everywhere will stay dry.

If you're planning a picnic or a BBQ, Saturday looks like the warmest and sunniest day of the weekend with top temperatures around 23 Celsius and light winds.

The sunshine will be hazy and many coasts will be cooler with sea breezes. There may also be some sea mist in the Irish Sea that could roll onto the coast around Cardigan Bay and Caernarfon Bay.

If you fancy a paddle, the sea temperature is a refreshing 11 or 12 Celsius. Sunday will be cloudier and cooler with the risk of some rain and showers which could be heavy with thunder.

However, if all goes to plan, it should dry and brighten-up during the afternoon with some sunshine. Temperatures will be around 16 to 20 Celsius with a light to moderate west to north-westerly breeze.

There are lots of events taking place this weekend:

  • Mancot Bowling Club in Flintshire are having a family open day on Sunday. Some rain is expected but it should brighten up later.
  • The Great Strait Raft Run is taking place on Sunday between Y Felinheli and Menai Bridge. The weather should improve here with a light to moderate north-westerly breeze.

Next week the signs are pointing towards cooler and more unsettled weather with low pressure bringing rain and showers - some of it heavy in places too.
