I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed that traumatic game of rugby on Saturday!

Unfortunately, there was a little rain in north west Wales on Sunday, which wasn't forecast.

Despite trying, it's impossible to be right all of the time when it comes to predicting the weather, but we have got better over the years.

Our three day forecast for instance is much more accurate than the one day forecast we used to offer back in 1980.

Read the Met Office forecast.

It's half term for schools this week and the weather is on the change...

A cold area of low pressure near Iceland is going to move south across Britain and Ireland bringing some rain and wintry showers. There will also be some snow in places.

However, there's no need to rush out to the supermarket and stock up on bread and milk!

I am not expecting a repeat of the conditions we had back in January when there was widespread disruption.

Most of the snow will be on the higher ground with some significant falls possible on some hills and mountains later in the week.

Some frost and icy patches are likely too but in between the wintry showers there is the prospect of seeing at least some sunshine, so the kids shouldn't have to stay indoors all week!
