Last weekend I was in North Wales and walked to the top of Conwy mountain on Sunday. It was cloudy but dry and not too windy with wonderful views along the coast and beyond.

Wrap up warm though as it's going to turn much colder as brisk north-easterly winds are set to bring a drop in temperature from Wednesday onwards and the odd snow flurry is also possible.
Otherwise it will be dry with plenty of cloud and a few bright intervals. The best of the sunshine will be in the west and around Cardigan Bay.
Daytime temperatures will rise a couple of degrees above freezing but it will feel much colder if you're out walking in that biting wind.
At the moment, the weekend looks dry with high pressure taking control again and the wind will fall light as well. Some frost is also likely where the cloud clears overnight, so keep an eye on any delicate plants.
So, in summary we'll see a dry end to January with February also starting off dry and settled but low pressure is never far away.
