Prynhawn da and shw'mae? I'm on location at the Eisteddfod in Llandow, Vale of Glamorgan this week keeping an eye on the weather on the Maes and across the rest of Wales.

 Over the weekend, parts of the country were hit by torrential downpours, thunder and flash flooding while a few places escaped dry.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms can sometimes be hit and miss. You can be driving along and everything is fine one minute and the next you hit a wall of water and can't see out of the windscreen!


The weather here in Llandow is mixed today with sunny intervals and a few showers. It's a similar story across the rest of the country too.

The showers not as intense as yesterday but if you catch one it could still be quite heavy.


Tomorrow and on Wednesday the south and south-west will be cloudy and damp with rain and drizzle at times.

Mid Wales and the north will be drier and brighter with some sunshine.

Thursday will be a better day alround; dry and warmer with sunny spells. By Friday, high pressure will be in charge bringing plenty of sunshine and rising temperatures.

 So, if you're coming to the Eisteddfod over the next couple of days, bring a coat and umbrella but later in the week the suncream will come in handy.

How long will the summery weather last?

Probably into Saturday but make the most of it as by Sunday a trough of low pressure may bring some thundery showers and a drop in temperature.

The weather hasn't been brilliant this summer but we'd like to know what you've been up to and where you've been.

Get in touch and share your photographs on our BBC Cymru Wales Summer in Wales Facebook page.

And don't forget, you can also follow me on Twitter @derektheweather for the latest weather updates.
