Dodging the showers at the Royal Welsh

Yesterday we got away with a dry day at the Royal Welsh Show and although it was cloudy and cool it was ideal for walking around the show. The visibility was also good and the cloud base high enough for the Lancaster bomber which entertained the crowds by flying right over the show ground during the afternoon - it was a spectacular sight!

Today it's Cobs day, which always attracts a big crowd, and the weather is keeping me on my toes. As I walked from Builth and over the bridge crossing the River Wye into Llanelwedd this morning it was dry and bright with some sunshine. However, clouds are building up now and there is a risk of a few showers this afternoon.

Tomorrow will bring a mixture of cloud, sunny intervals and scattered showers. The showers will turn heavy in places perhaps with a rumble of thunder. It will remain on the cool side for July with highs around 17 Celsius, 63 Fahrenheit but at least the wind will be light and when the sun comes out it will feel quite pleasant.

At the moment, most of the weekend doesn't look too bad overall but I will tell you more about that tomorrow. In the meantime, I am going to have a quick peek at what's going on in the main ring before my next radio bulletin.
