It was damp on the Maes this morning; the umbrellas were up with a few people wearing wellies but thankfully the rain has cleared and everyone is looking forward to a much drier and brighter afternoon with a little sunshine.
Yesterday Wrexham was one of the warmest places in Wales with temperatures rising to 25 Celsius, 77 Fahrenheit. I don't think we'll reach that today: 21 Celsius 70 Fahrenheit will be nearer the mark and it's still feeling a bit on the muggy side with a light breeze.
Tomorrow will be a much better day on the whole. I wouldn't rule out spots of drizzle in the north in the morning, the odd light shower in the afternoon but apart from that it should be dry. Variable cloud and a few sunny intervals. The north coast and Anglesey could turn out quite sunny tomorrow afternoon. It will feel fresher everywhere tomorrow with lower humidity. Highest temperatures 17 to 21 Celsius with the wind falling light.
The weekend still looks mixed. Saturday the best day with some sunshine and showers. Light winds and sea breezes.
Sunday cooler with more showers. Some of them heavy and prolonged with a risk of thunder. The wind picking-up too and feeling cooler.
If you're coming along to the Eisteddfod, pop along and say hello. Sian Lloyd and I will be at the BBC Cube around 3pm.
Don't forget you can follow me on twitter @derektheweather for weather updates.
