Today is my last day at the National Eisteddfod and the week has flown by. The weather has been a bit up and down but I've really enjoyed it, meeting lots of people and I've been able to practise my Welsh. I've learnt a few new words and phrases which I am sure will come in handy.
Sian Lloyd and I popped into the BBC stand yesterday and had our photo taken with visitors from all over Wales. We also had our photo taken on the Doctor Who set. I was the Doctor and Sian was my beautiful assistant!
I feel like jumping in the Tardis today and flying off somewhere warm and sunny because the weather in Ebbw Vale is damp and breezy with a sticky drizzle and the cloud is sitting on the hills of Blaenau Gwent.
Tomorrow will be a little better but not great for August. Plenty of cloud with a few showers although by evening it should be dry. Temperatures on the cool side, only 16 Celsius, with a moderate west to north-westerly breeze.
Sunday the best day of the weekend. Much drier and brighter across Wales with broken cloud and sunshine and with lighter winds it will feel warmer. Top temperatures 17 to 22 Celsius, warmest in the southeast.
On Monday rain and showers are expected. Tuesday and Wednesday breezy with sunny intervals and scattered showers. And then the good news, the signs are summer will return later in the week when high pressure will take control of our weather, bringing more settled conditions and warming-up as well. And about time too !
Have a great weekend
