by Ruth Wignall

Tonight: There will be some sunshine this evening. Light winds and largely clear skies overnight mean some patchy fog may form in prone spots. Minimum Temperature 6C.

Tuesday: Once any overnight mist or fog patches clear it should be a bright morning with sunny spells. It will turn cloudier through the afternoon but should stay mainly dry. Maximum Temperature 20C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday: It will remain largely fine, but often rather cloudy with some patchy light rain or drizzle possible. There will be some bright or sunny spells making it feel warm.

The new beers, Obeerma, Beer Cam and Merkale, are named after President Obama, Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel.

They will be served at a special NATO drinks reception at Tredegar House in Newport during the summit.

It’s not very often you get 67 heads of state and government descend on Wales so it’s great to be able to showcase our brewing credentials to a global audience.

The first stage of a £6.7 million plan to restore historic Regency landscape at the National Botanic Garden of Wales has been given the go-ahead.

It's been announced that the Garden has received initial financial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop it's plans for the Regency Restoration project.

In what will be the biggest project in the Garden's history, it will aim to uncover the origins of Middleton Hall - the grand estate that the Garden now occupies.

"It is an ambitious project and the most significant undertaking since the Garden opened in 2000. It is one which will not only provide enduring value to this part of Wales but is also very much about honouring the original vision of...all the Garden's founders."

– Dr Rosie Plummer, Director of the National Botanic Garden
