Anglesey enjoyed over 14 hours of sunshine yesterday but not everywhere stayed dry. Some heavy showers broke out in south and west Wales and Tirabad in Powys was the wettest place in the UK with 37mm of rain.

Funnel clouds were spotted in Brecon and Cross Hands. If a funnel cloud touches the ground it becomes a tornado, and if it touches the sea it becomes a waterspout.

Alex Birtwisle filmed this interesting formation of clouds in Ystradgynlais yesterday.

I'm working at the Eisteddfod in Denbigh this week and apart from Monday the weather has been kind, dry with some sunshine and quite warm. During the night, though, it has turned quite cool.

At Capel Curig in Snowdonia, the temperature fell to 6°C last night a sign that the nights are getting longer and autumn is around the corner.

This evening and tonight fronts will bring a little rain and drizzle so tonight will be warmer with temperatures not falling below 13 to 17°C.

The rain will clear later in the night with more dry weather tomorrow. There will be some sunshine at times and it will feel a little cooler than today with a west to north-westerly breeze.

Saturday mostly dry with a little sunshine and a shower in places. On Saturday night into Sunday a trough of low pressure will bring some rain and heavy showers but this will clear to sunny spells and one or two showers.

A few people have said they've heard there's another heat-wave on the way. Well there's no sign of one.

The outlook is mixed with wind, rain and showers at times but with some dry, sunny spells as well.

If you're coming to the Eisteddfod in Denbigh, you can keep up to date with the forecast here.

Hwyl am y tro,

Derek
