Weekend weather forecast

If you've got any plans for the weekend, I can promise plenty of dry weather. Some sunshine, but on Sunday there is a risk of rain in the south.

Cardiff Outdoor Group are holding the annual South Wales Three Peaks Trial challenge walk tomorrow. It starts from the Red Cross Hut in Fairfield car park, Abergavenny at 8am.

Some low cloud and hill fog is likely in the morning with the odd light shower but the weather will improve during the day. Becoming brighter with some sunshine. Top temperatures in the valleys 10 Celsius. Colder on the summits, around two Celsius at 800 metres, with a brisk breeze.

On Palm Sunday, a dry start but a little rain may spread into south Wales during the day. The north will be dry and bright with some hazy sunshine. Highest temperatures will be eight to 11 Celsius with mainly light winds.

Next week there are signs of a change. Some heavy rain on Monday, then turning colder and windy on Tuesday with some sleet and snow possible!

So it looks like we haven't seen the last of winter yet but on a more positive note, British Summer Time begins on Sunday so don't forget to put the clocks and watches forward by one hour. Unfortunately, this means an hour less in bed in the morning but at least the evenings will be lighter.

    Hi Derek,
    I am a Guider in Miskin with 2nd Pontyclun Guides, and was wondering about the possibility of you visiting our unit and possibly taking them on a local walk, or giving a talk about the local area.
    Any information you could provide would be fantastic.

    I can understand every word that Derek Brockway says when giving the weather forecast. I am very deaf and feel he is talking to me. I always watch HTV weather forecast first and cannot follow what either Ruth Wendall or the man are saying. They turn to the map to speak and when they do speak, it is so quick and I really cannot follow it.
    Derek Brockway and his assistants are all excellent.
