WEATHER – The weather has been extremely volatile over the last few weeks, storm Ciara and Storm Dennis have caused havoc in the local area and across the UK. Floods have been occurring all over the country especially in local towns such as Pontypridd, Nantgarw and Taffs Wells with the Rivers Taff and Ely breaking their banks on a daily basis. The weather ahead is also volatile but not as severe but the land is saturated so any rain fall will be damaging. Rain is predicted Thursday, saturday, Sunday, Monday and Wednesday this week with the heaviest predicted on Thursday. The other factor this week is the wind again generally 40 mph winds from the West continuously this week. Stormy weather again so plan ahead. (

Average speed will be 30 mph and getting up to excess of 45 mph Westerly and South Westerly through out the next few days and into next week. The wind is due to be the strongest next Monday with up to 47 mph so extreme caution is required especially after storms

Scuba Diving Wales, South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Carmarthenshire 20th February 2020 – Scuba Diving this week has again been affected by the adverse wind and weather conditions. High winds, big swells, choppy seas, stormy conditions and overall severe weather means that scuba diving in the South Wales region will be unsuitable definitely for the next few days at least. The visibility will also be down to very low and the water temperature is also at its lowest. Stay out of the sea for the next few days and head off to the inland sites for the better Scuba diving next to Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and the surrounding areas.
