Weather on the Maes

I'm in Blaenau Gwent this week working at the National Eisteddfod in Ebbw Vale. Yesterday was dry on the Maes with some sunshine but it's a different story today with light rain and drizzle or 'glaw man' in Welsh.

Mind you, as I write this, the sun has started to break through the clouds with a much drier afternoon and evening in prospect.

Yesterday, I met the choir from Only Boys Aloud who are a friendly bunch. They sang for us at the end of Wales Today news in the evening. I'm sure they have a bright future ahead of them and I wish them well.

A family from Swansea taught me a new Welsh word this morning. Hawddamor which is an old Welsh term for 'welcome' or 'greetings'. Perhaps I will use it at the start of my late evening weather bulletin?!

If you're coming to the National Eisteddfod over the next few days, here is my forecast:

Wednesday early rain then drier and brighter with the chance of a shower. Breezy.

Thursday breezy but apart from the odd light shower it should be dry.

Friday turning wet with some heavy rain.

Saturday breezy with a mixture of bright intervals and showers.

Top temperatures 16 or 17 Celsius. Dropping down 10 to 13 Celsius at night.

Pob Hwyl
