It's all up in the air

Yesterday many parts of Wales had a good soaking with some flooding. Geraint Edwards who runs a weather station at Llanarman Dyffryn Ceiriog near Llangollen recorded 46 mm of rain (nearly 2 inches) in 24 hours and so it's not surprising the river Wye at Builth Wells is the highest it's been for months.

Thankfully it's much drier and brighter at the Royal Welsh Show today with only a few showers.

Earlier on, I took advanrage of the sunshine and went for a wander around the showground and bumbed into three Welsh women called Trekking Trio/Tair yn Treco.

Here's a pic of me and the girls stood next to a shiny, red chopper:


They will be climbing Kilimanjaro on Boxing Day raising money for Air ambulance Wales and will be at the FUW stand all day Wednesday and Thursday.

On the stall you can win a fabulous hamper worth £90 as a raffle prize - they will draw the raffle on Thursday at the show.

The girls are working hard training for the climb and are also trying to raise a huge £10,000 for the Air Ambulance - so pop in to see them for a chat and a chance to win a prize!

They're sending me up in a hot air balloon tonight for the weather bulletin so I hope we don't bump into any swans up there.
