I can't believe today is the last day of the Royal Welsh Show. The week has flown by and it's fair to say we've been very lucky with the weather this year. There was a little rain on Monday and Tuesday was dry. Most of Wednesday was dry as well apart from one or two light showers. Hopefully it will stay dry today too. I woudn't rule out a shower this afternoon/evening which could be heavy but given their random nature they may miss the show ground.
Sunshine has been in short supply this week, with plenty of cloud, so sun stroke hasn't been a problem. It has also been on the cool side but that's good news for the animals with no chance of them suffering from heat stress. And provided you've brought a jacket, temperatures have been ideal for walking around the show with light winds.
Looking ahead, tomorrow will bring a mixture of cloud, sunshine and scattered heavy showers but the weekend looks more promising. Generally dry, sunnier and a little warmer with light to moderate winds and sea breezes.
Next week, we could be in for a spell of more summery weather (at long last) with high pressure bringing a good deal of dry weather and warming up too. Obviously things could change but keep your fingers and toes crossed!
Well this is my last blog from Llanelwedd. I will be back in the big city tomorrow!
