The weather is in much better shape today compared to yesterday thanks to a ridge of high pressure.

Today it's been dry with some patchy cloud and sunshine and good visibility. The temperature in Pembrey rose to a pleasant 13.

However, the weather remains in a very changeable mood. A cold front will move south east later tomorrow bringing a little rain followed by colder north-westerly winds and showers.

Tonight will continue dry and be fairly clear with light winds, so it will turn cold with a widespread ground frost.

An air frost is likely in parts of Powys and Carmarthenshire where the temperature could fall as low as -1℃.

On Wednesday morning you may need to scrape the frost off your car windscreen first thing.

Watch out for mist and fog patches too if you're travelling early but it should lift during the morning. Otherwise it will be dry and bright with some sunshine.

During the afternoon, it will cloud-over with some rain expected by the evening.

A south-westerly wind will gradually pick-up as well, becoming strong in the west and reaching gale force in north west Wales and Irish Sea.

Wednesday evening will continue to be windy but the rain will soon clear followed by broken clouds and scattered blustery showers.

Lowest temperatures 5-8 so no frost but feeling cold in the strong and blustery wind.

Thursday will continue windy with a brisk north-westerly wind. The wind will be strong, up to gale force in the north and west with gusts around 45mph inland. 55mph on exposed coasts and 60 to 70mph on the mountain tops!

A few squally showers are likely on Thursday too with some dry, bright weather and sunshine mixed in as well.

Highest temperatures 7-10 but it will feel much colder out in the wind. More like -8 on Pen y Fan, -10 on Snowdon summit where the showers will be wintry in nature falling as sleet and snow.
