Changing autumn

Yesterday, I went for a stroll from Goytre Wharf to Mynydd Garn Wen in south east Wales - a walk I did a few years ago for BBC Radio Wales Weatherman Walking.

It was good to do the walk again and show a couple of friends the way. The weather was breezy with sunshine and a few heavy showers.

Along the way we passed an ancient Holy Well, Pontypool Folly and the views from the top of Garn Wen were superb.

After walking down a medieval track, which may actually be an old Roman Road, we stopped for lunch in the Star Inn in Mamhilad opposite St. Illtud's Church.

We then walked back to Goytre Wharf along the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal dodging the showers and enjoying the changing autumn colours.

Today the weather has changed again thanks to the remnants of Hurricane Maria. She is currently centred near Iceland bringing us rain and drizzle but we're not expecting a repeat of last Monday's severe gales.

After some rain tonight and in the south tomorrow, the next few days look drier, bar a few showers.

Wednesday will be the windiest day with near gale force winds in north west Wales.
