A taste of summer

Last week most of Wales enjoyed a taste of summer.

At the Royal Welsh Show attendance records were broken and on Thursday in Cardiff the temperature soared to 28 Celsius making it the hottest day of the year so far in the capital.

Since then it has turned cooler and fresher with lower humidity. Daytime temperatures this week between16 to 21 Celsius, 61 to 70 Fahrenheit, which is around average or a little below.

Low pressure near Ireland will also bring us some rain and fresh to strong winds but good news for our wave starved surfers this summer.

Thursday and Friday will be brighter with a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers.

The air will be unstable so the showers could be heavy in places with hail and thunder.

The weekend will continue rather cool and changeable with showers and sunny spells.

So not the best of summer weather this week but at least the pollen count will be low!
