As expected the weather over the weekend was very mixed with heavy downpours, hail and thunder in places but it wasn't a total wash-out and some places saw some sunshine in the afternoon.
Aberporth in Ceredigion enjoyed over 6 hours of sunshine yesterday and at Eglwyswen in Pembrokeshire the temperature reached a respectable 13.3 Celsius, 55 Fahrenheit.
I am sure you won't be surprised to hear that April is on course to be colder and wetter than average. The first month to have above average rainfall in Wales since last December.
This week will bring more heavy rain and showers. Wednesday will be the wettest and windiest day of the week with a deep Atlantic low pressure bringing a spell of inclement weather. It will also feel cold and unpleasant with daytime temperatures below 10 Celsius.
I am sure some people will be glad to see the back of April but we do need the rain, especially across the border in England.
There is hint it may get a little warmer next weekend and into the start of May but not completely dry, with thundery rain and showers possible.
