The weather has certainly kept me on my toes over the past couple of weeks with heavy rain, snow, freezing temperatures and strong winds to deal with.

Thankfully, it's a lot calmer now with a quiet, spell of weather this weekend, for a change.

In the last 24 hours, over 25mm (over an inch) fell at Lake Vyrnwy in Powys and at Capel Curig in Conwy. The best of the sunshine today has been in Pembrokeshire with temperatures rising to a mild 10°C on the coast, 50°F.

Tonight most of Wales will be dry. Some clear skies but with low cloud, mist and fog patches forming. A slight frost is possible in places too.

Most likely in parts of Powys and south-east Wales where temperatures could fall as low as -2 Celsius.

Tomorrow mixed fortunes across the Nation. Some places will stay dull and grey with mist and fog patches slow to lift.

A little drizzle is possible e.g. in Deeside otherwise dry and few favoured places will brighten up with a little sunshine.

The best of the sunshine might be on top of the Brecon Beacons. Top temperatures around average, 6 or 7°C , 44°F with a light northerly breeze.

If you fancy a walk, my new Weatherman Walking series begins next week and we've just launched a new walking site featuring all of the new walks, so you might gain some inspiration from there.

Tomorrow, St. Mary's Church Hall in Johnstown, near Wrexham are holding a soup lunch to raise funds for the Haiti disaster between 12 noon - 2pm. If you're going along it will be dry and there may even be a little sunshine.

Sunday a few spots of light rain are possible in parts of North Wales but most of the country dry. Some cloud, mist and fog patches again but if you're lucky you'll see the sun. Winds remaining light with highs around 5 or 6°C.

Next week the signs are its going to turn colder. Temperatures dropping a few degrees with some frost.

Cascaid Community Church in Penpedairheol are holding a fundraising day for Haiti next Monday between 10am and 4pm. Everyone is welcome and it should be dry.

Have a nice weekend
