Dig out the shorts and flip-flops

It's time to dig out the shorts and flip-flops! Miserable May will turn into marvellous May this week.

High pressure looks set to bring most of us a taste of summer with plenty of sunshine and becoming warmer too.

The highest temperature recorded in Wales so far this year was in Porthmadog in Gwynedd, 22.2 Celsius, 72 Fahrenheit on March 24, but I think somewhere will beat that this week.

It's not all plain sailing though as some coasts will be cooler with sea breezes and a risk of sea mist/ fog mainly around the Irish Sea.

While Pembrokeshire may be disappointingly cloudy tomorrow with temperatures only 14 Celsius in St. Davids and Manorbier compared to 21 Celsius in Cardiff, Brecon, Wrexham and Knighton.

The Olympic torch reaches Wales this Friday, 25 May and it should be dry and warm with a breeze in Monmouth and Abergavenny.

Breezy too in Pontypool and Cardiff and a risk of a shower in places.

As for the weekend, at the moment it looks like turning cooler and breezy with east to north-east winds. Saturday may turn out fine, clear and sunny but on Sunday cloud may bring showers.

Beyond that, the signs are it will turn more unsettled during the last week of May with low pressure bringing showers or longer spells of rain.

So make the most of the fine and warmer weather this week if you can and don't forget the suncream.
