Yesterday was warm and muggy with a high of 20 Celsius, 68 Fahrenheit at Hawarden in Flintshire but today is much cooler and fresher with maximum temperatures around 14 Celsius.

This evening, rain in the far south will clear leaving all of Wales dry overnight and chilly with a ground frost in places by the morning. Tomorrow fine and dry with sunshine and light winds. Friday will start dry but more rain will spread from the west during the day along with freshening winds.
