Temperatures have been up and down this week. A chilly 5 Celsius in Tredegar on Wednesday but it's now turned milder again, up to 15 in Llandudno yesterday afternoon.
Overall the first half of November has been mild according to the Met Office.
Temperatures have generally been well above normal and it has been much drier and sunnier than usual. November is normally one of the wettest months of the year but so far we haven't had much rain. In Wales, only 36.3mm of rain fell from I - 15 November.
High pressure over the continent is the reason for the recent quiet spell of weather and the lack of rainfall but things are on the change now.
The high pressure is moving away and low pressure over the Atlantic is beginning to influence our weather.
That means more unsettled conditions with stronger winds but with southerly winds, temperatures will remain above the seasonal average. The mild weather looks set to continue over the weekend but at least it will help to keep the heating bills down.
