Well it was a stormy old night last night with heavy rain and strong to severe gale force winds buffeting the country.

The highest wind gust recorded was 69mph at Aberdaron, RAF Valley on Anglesey and at Pembrey on the Carmarthenshire coast. The wind was strong enough to bring down the odd tree.

Some of us have also had a taste of winter with snow on the hills and mountains in the north and as far south as the Brecon Beacons.

The deep area of low pressure responsible for the disturbed weather is currently centred over Ireland but is moving slowly towards France and as it does so, the wind will turn into the northeast and strengthen tonight and tomorrow making it feel cold.

Gales are likely on the hills and mountains with a significant wind chill so if you're going walking make sure you wear plenty of layers! The wind will ease tomorrow night and into Wednesday with a slight frost, but another spell of wet and windy weather is expected to sweep in from the Atlantic on Thursday followed by clearer conditions and blustery showers.
