This is the kind of weather that I've been driving in all
Made shitake mushroom soup last night with some shitake (grown
in Wales) from the True Taste truck in the RHS flower show last
weekend.....At least I liked it!
There are more showers ahead of us during the next few days in
Wales. A few of them heavy and possibly thundery, with hail. Only a
few brighter moments.
Anyway, I took full advantage of the wonderful weather yesterday
and I went walking around the village and on the beaches collecting
rubbish. And while I was walking, I came across a group of Welsh
speaking ramblers....a bit embarrasing! And while I was driving to
the tip with the refuse bags I came across a wonderful rape seed
oil field. There are some photos on my facebook page.

Heavy rain today of course, and totally different to yesterday
(the radar image is full of blues and greens and yellows and a few
bright pink bits - the heavy rain) although having said that, I`m
looking outside at the moment and the sun is shining in Llanelli!!
Typical April weather.
I'm sure that we have all heard of April showers and I'm sure
that you are all aware of the real mixture - showers and sunny
spells - that's in store for us over the next few days. But what's
responsible for that kind of weather? Well, as the winds converge
along the surface and are blown upwards, and as the air rises into
the atmosphere, everything cools and leads to clouds and showers,
which of course, falls to the ground. And either side of that air
that rises, there is air that falls and becomes warmer, and so any
moisture dissolves and leads to sunny spells. So it's the
difference between the air that rises and the air that falls, put
simply, that is responsible for this mixed bag of weather.
And of course, today and for the rest of the week, there is
colder air moving towards Wales from the North West and this
clashes with warmer air that lies in the South East of Britain, and
surprise surprise, leads to unsettled and changeable weather!. That
After driving in that terrible rain yesterday, it is soooooo
nice to see the sunshine today,although as I said, tomorrow and
Thursday and Friday look very unsettled and mixed. I'm going to my
brother in law's wedding in Nottingham tomorrow and we are treating
it like our mini Easter holiday.
Yes, another wet and windy and miserable washout of a bank
holiday! Keep warm and dry and let us know how the rain is likely
to affect your event, by Facebook or Twitter or e mail.
So.....is that the end of the sunny weather? Wel at the moment,
and thinking of how the snow is causing all kinds of problems in
Scotland and Northern England, it certainly looks like it! Although
the temperature is likely to rise again by the end of the week with
more settled weather returning.
Of course, this wintry weather is not too unusual this time of
year. And it's the colder air, moving down from the North and
clashing with milder air, that's responsible for the wintry
weather, with the Arctic winds contributing! And the poor jet
stream has no idea what's going on!
Anyway, it was a cloudy morning when I walked Jac the dog this
morning in Ogmore. By now, although feeling colder, it's sunny in
the capital here at least, although there are likely to be wintry
showers in the east and Mid Wales today, tonight and tomorrow. Keep
an eye on our daily bulletins and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
for the latest information.
I'll be presenting this weekend and I'll be giving you as
much information as possible about the next few days.
