We were blessed with some beautiful weather over the Easter Holiday weekend. Yesterday Anglesey enjoyed nearly 13 hours of sunshine, while Pembrey in Carmarthenshire recorded a high of 20 Celsius, 68 Fahrenheit.

Mind you, there were differences in the weather from day to day and from place to place. Last Saturday a few scattered showers and thunderstorms broke out.

No more thunderstorms are expected over the next few days but it will be cooler than recently with east to north-easterly winds, some ground frost is likely too, especially tomorrow night under clear skies.

The forecast for the Royal Wedding is keeping us on our toes, and if you're planning a street party an umbrella may come in handy. At the moment, a lot of cloud is likely with a risk of showers which could be heavy.

However, the latest charts suggest it won't be a total right off; some dry spells are likely and hopefully it will brighten-up with a little sunshine. Highest temperatures on Friday 14 to 17 Celsius with a light to moderate east to north-easterly breeze.
