Live updates

Bright and showery

There are some bright spells around today but a rash of showers too. The winds around the north western coasts which could get rather blustery. Temperatures today about average at 7-9C.

Tonight there will be more organised bands of showers marching across Wales. Some will be persistent.

Temperatures will drop away to 4C, normally this would be enough for a touch of ground frost but tonight it's unlikely to be an issue thanks to the showers and a brisk breeze.

Tomorrow another band of showers affect NW Wales and once again they could be persistent. Other parts of the country should be drier and brighter but a scattered shower cannot be ruled out. Highs tomorrow of 8 or 9C.

Showery end to the weekend

It's a near repeat performance of Saturday today. Showers forming in the Irish Sea will blow in across Wales during the day. Some of them will be heavy in nature. But a breeze means that none of them should linger too long. Like yesterday, expect highs of 10C.

The showers continue on Monday but then ease off on Tuesday ahead of wet weather for midweek.

More showers for Sunday

It's been a showery day today and the weather looks set to be a repeat performance tomorrow. Those showers continue through the night, but become more restricted to coastal areas. Away from the coast in clearer spells and with light winds, temperatures could dip to 3C, enough for a frost.

Sunday will shape up much like today with sunny spells and showers, it will be a little breezy around the coast. Again highs of 10C. The showers continue on Monday but then ease off on Tuesday ahead of wet weather for midweek.

Bright & breezy with some showers around

Its a day of sunny spells and showers. Some of them heavy at times. A mildish day with highs of 10C. Those showers continue through the night, but become more restricted to coastal areas. Away from the coast in clearer spells and with light winds, temperatures could dip to 3C, enough for a frost.

Sunday will shape up much like today with sunny spells and showers, it will be a little breezy around the coast. Again highs of 10C.

Bright but showery weekend

After yesterday's rain, there's a little more brightness this weekend but a fair few showers too.

The showers continue through the day, some of them heavy in nature. Mainly around the western and southern coasts but into the afternoon may become more widespread across southern counties. Central and north Wales may fare better in the afternoon. Highs of 9-10C, mild in the sunnier breaks.

Sunday is set to be a repeat performance of today, and then the weather starts to settle a little, and we get to hold on to slightly milder temperatures.

Rain clearing overnight but plenty of showers around

Today's rain will clear to the north east through the evening, but there are likely to be a number of showers around to follow. Some could be heavy and thundery. With temperatures less cold than of late we'll escape a frost, but it will still be rather chilly with lows of 5-6C.

Tomorrow sees the showers continuing, some of them heavy in nature. Mainly around the western and southern coasts but into the afternoon may become more widespread across southern counties. Central and north Wales may fare better in the afternoon. Highs of 9-10C, mild in the sunnier breaks.

Police seek those responsible for severe delays this morning after signalling equipment was found damaged

BTP officers were called to the railway line near Dyffryn Estate, Newport, after Network Rail reported a loss of power to signals in the area.

The incident was reported to BTP at 12.02pm.

Officers attended along with engineers from Network Rail and discovered damage had been caused to lineside signalling equipment.

The incident led to a number of trains being delayed or cancelled, causing disruption for passengers and the rail industry. The lines were fully reopened at 2.25pm.

Enquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible for the damage.

– British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman

Anyone with information which they believe can assist, should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

In all calls, please quote incident reference 250 of 14/12/2012.

Wet and windy end to the week

The cold and crisp weather we've had came to an abrupt end with the arrival of some heavy rain. Whilst it's not exactly mild, it's certainly less cold than it has been. There are two bands of rain, so if you see a break in the wet weather, chances are there's more on the way before it clears.

The rest of the day sees that rain heading northeast. Once the main rainband clears there will be plenty of showers following on behind. It will be less cold than of late, but still feeling chilly.

Icy weather causes problems
