I think it's fair to say that summer hasn't got off to a great start this year with plenty of rain, strong winds and some flooding too. The first half of June has been cooler and wetter than average.
In Trawsgoed, Ceredigion over 171mm (6.7 inches) of rain has fallen so far this month which is more than double the June average of 78.5mm.
Thankfully, the next few days are looking more summery with a mixture of broken cloud and sunny spells. Wednesdayis likely to be the warmest day of the week with top temperatures 19 to 21 Celsius.
Coastal areas will enjoy the best for sunshine but it's not all plain sailing with a few scattered showers likely. One or two of these may be on the heavy side but they will be hit and miss with a lot of places staying dry.
Later in the week the weather looks like turning unsettled again with low pressure moving in from the Atlantic bringing yet more rain, heavy showers and strong winds.
The rest of the month looks changeable with the jet stream coming and going with low pressure alternating with high pressure.
Some days will be better than others but at the moment there is no sign of a repeat of the very warm and sunny weather we enjoyed in March and in late May.
