Well, I hope you all had a good weekend. I went for a 5 mile walk on Saturday from Cefn Onn Park in Cardiff.

The walk is varied, passing through woodland and from the top of the ridge there are wonderful views of the city and Caerphilly and we could even see the two Severn bridges.

Given the weather was dry I was surprised how quiet it was, especially Cefn Onn Park which is well worth a visit.

Yesterday I got my bike out for the first time this year and did a 20 mile ride in the Vale of Glamorgan! The weather was gorgeous and it was great fun riding through the country lanes.

There was hardly a car in sight but we had to watch out for pot holes. We passed through some beautiful villages too, like Welsh St. Donats, Llanblethian and Siginstone where we stopped for a pub lunch before heading back home.

The fine weather we're enjoying today is set to continue this week. I wouldn't rule out a thundery shower on Wednesday and Thursday but otherwise it will be dry with some patchy cloud and good sunny spells.

It will also get warmer with winds from the Meditterranean. Temperatures will rise into the low 20's Celsius, 68 to 73 Fahnrenheit and well above the April average of 12 Celsius. Although some coasts will be cooler with onshore sea breezes.

The weather over Easter can often be chilly with snow but not this year. Next weekend will continue to be warm. A few showers are possible on Saturday but otherwise it's looking fine and dry with more sunshine so ideal for any outdoor plans you may have!
