You might have trouble lighting your sparklers this evening as it's going to be a bit damp if not wet, especially in Mid Wales and the south.

In fact the 'Sparks in the Dark' fireworks display at St. Helen's in Swansea has been postponed until Tuesday 9th November.

Tickets already purchased will still be valid for Tuesday's display. Should you require any further information please contact (01792) 635428 or visit www.swansea.gov.uk/fireworks. Over the last few days over four inches of rain has fallen on the high ground in Snowdonia and Montgomeryshire so some rivers are now swollen.

At the time of writing, there are three flood warnings in force in Bala and in the lower and upper Dee valley and 8 flood watches.

Thankfully much drier weather is on the way. The rain in the north will clear around 7pm this evening and drier weather will be spreading southeast during the rest of the evening.

However, the rain probably won't clear from Cardiff and Newport until about 11pm.

Tomorrow we can look forward to a much better day - drier and brighter. We'll all see some sunshine for a change but a few scattered showers are likely.

Most showers will be in the north and west and it will also feel colder and fresher than recently.

Temperatures will be a more seasonal 10 to 12 Celsius with a generally light to moderate west to north-westerly breeze.

If you're in Cardiff for the rugby match between Wales and Australia then it will be dry with some sunshine and light winds.

Saturday night - a few showers are expected for a time with most of them in the west and the northwest where some could be heavy and prolonged with a risk of hail and thunder.

It will be a cold night too with some mist and ground frost forming and lowest temperatures typically 0 to 3 Celsius.

On Sunday it will be dry and bright with the odd shower for most of the day with highs of 7 to 9 Celsius and light winds until after dark.

If you're off to watch the big show down between Cardiff City and Swansea on Sunday afternoon, then it will be fine but chilly - so take a scarf and gloves!

Into next week and a word of warning - A big low pressure is heading our way on Sunday night into Monday bringing a spell of wet and windy weather.

Heavy rain and strong to severe gale force winds.

So make the most of the dry weather and sunshine over the weekend if you can.
