It will be a week of mixed weather with sunny spells and scattered showers. But the temperatures will be slowly improving slightly during the next few days.

The thermometer reading in Porthmadog, for instance, will start at 15C at the beginning of the week and go up to 18C degrees by next weekend. Forecasters say tomorrow (Monday) will be a breezy day with a mixture of sunny spells, patchy cloud and occasional showers.

Showers will tend to ease away in the afternoon, with longer sunny spells developing. Sunny spells are also expected on Tuesday, along with some patchy cloud and the odd shower.

Wednesday looks to be mainly dry, with sunny spells and variable cloud. It will be a dry and sunny start on Thursday, but cloud will build later with spells of rain pushing in from the west, and southerly breezes picking up. Temperatures remaining below average.

But there is a hint of better weather at the end of the month, the Met Office has said. Wind is coming down on the UK from the north, with low pressure sitting north-east of the UK and high pressure to the west, senior operational meteorologist Marco Petagna said.

The weather is expected to remain unsettled for the next week but there is a “hint” that later in the month things could become more settled, but “it’s still quite a way off”, Mr Petagna said.

No weather warnings are in place and are not expected in the short term, the forecaster added.
