A Blorenge coloured rainbow

I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed the rugby!

I made the most of the fine weather on Saturday and went for a 6.5 mile walk near Blaenavon, climbing to the top of the Blorenge.

This walk brought back memories of when I filmed here in the snow for Weatherman Walking a few years ago.

No snow this time round, just the odd rain shower, sunshine and wonderful views of Abergavenny, the Black Mountains and beyond.

There were definitely signs of spring in the air with catkins on the trees but we haven't seen the last of winter yet.

It maybe St. Valentine's Day today but there is no warmth in the air for lovers, with temperatures only 4 to 8 Celsius across the country.

If you're planning a romantic stroll this week, you will need to cwtch-up and remember the thermals as it will be cold, wet and windy at times, with sleet and snow likely on the higher hills and mountains.
