John has a stand in this week - one who has featured on these pages before, the talented Phill Boyd, who when he is not getting great photos like the one here, is to be found working as head chef in the Zinc kitchen. This shot, taken from Rhiw, is looking towards Porth Neigwl beach and shows the narrowness of this part of peninsula. See more of Phill's work at:

Clear blue skies over Abersoch during this week, captured by John from near to the Tal y Fan site, next to the Warren. St. Tudwal's West Island can be seen, the summer home of Bear Grylls.

An incredible week of weather in Abersoch saw several days with temperatures reaching levels above 30C, which was potentially unprecedented in recent times. The hot conditions provided an extra challenge for the hundreds of triathletes who were racing in Abersoch this weekend. An early easterly breeze also made the bay choppy, adding an extra challenge for the swin legs of the races.

Changeable weather conditions have returned to Abersoch and Pen Llyn after the warm, continental influenced weather of recent weeks. However, despite the weather now coming from an Atlantic source, lovely periods can still come and go and this afternoon is a classic example of that, with some pleasant sunshine arriving after the Saturday morning rain, captured by the lens of John Wormald.

The really warm, continental style weather has continued since our last photo update from John, but rather than a sizzling beach shot, we have something a little different this week, with a shot looking across the inner harbour. It shows the new Riverside housing development, which is also the new home for Phill's Abersoch Watersports, with the McGill and Lloyd-Jones boatyards in the foreground.

The last week has seen some great weather here in Abersoch, with plenty of dry and bright weather with some really classic days mixed in. This photo is taken of the outer harbour and harbour beach area of Abersoch, with the jetty providing ample protection for the boats anchored within. Note that the deep water moorings in the bay are seeing boats return again for the season, as yachts are brought out of hibernation and returned to their summer home.

There has been some sunshine in the last week and John took this shot of Abersoch Inner Harbour from the Riverside hosing development, the site of the old Riverside Hotel. The hotel was one of several landmark buildings that have been replaced by holiday housing in recent years. The pontoon in the foreground of the photo is the floating one that will go out to St. Tudwal's West Island during the summer.

Another sunny photo this week from John as Abersoch finally joins in with the fine and warm spell that other parts of the UK have been seeing this week. Today, that combination of a lack of wind and warm sunshine has sent tempertures into the high teens C and it looks as though this is the best day of 2018 so far. You can keep track of the latest Abersoch weather over on our forecast page.

The sunshine has come out for the middle Saturday in April, as captured by John today. The big question is whether Abersoch will see the heat this week that is expected in parts of the UK, with perhaps the second half of the week seeing some summer-like conditions arriving after a very windy and changeable period starting tomorrow. You can keep track of the latest Abersoch weather over on our forecast page.

At this time of year, when the sea is still cold, the weather can still feel very warm here in Abersoch with the magic ingredients required being sunshine and a lack of breeze. Once that breeze drops out, we lose the cooling influence of the seas that surround the peninsula, with a local warming effect taking place. This happened for a time on the 5th April and John was on hand to capture the glassy bay and the lone yacht out in the bay.

Beach huts at first light are the theme of this week's photo from John, however, under very different circumstances to the one that we posted last week... the morning after the heaviest snowfall in the area for 35 years, brought by the latter stages of Storm Emma that battered the bay and coast with severe easterly gales, bringing a very rare ice storm, followed by a blizzard. Incredible weather!

John is back for this week's photo with a view across to St. Tudwal's Islands from just above the main beach of Abersoch. It won't be too long before this view of the empty seas are once again replaced with the spectacle of boats and yachts, windsurfers and paddleboarders.
