onto the property market in Cardiff. This time last year James was an

:04:38.:04:40.

The company is committed to using local workers and suppliers. The

:04:41.:04:44.

idea of the innovation centres to develop you industries in Wales that

we can't yet imagine. The fourth Industrial Revolution has Billy Zane

to be a rapid move towards automation. We will have to design

new ways of doing things and design new products and manufacture more.

The new site in Cardiff is one project that it's hoped will bring a

:05:08.:05:12.

better future to Wales. Initially there will be in prime and for

:05:13.:05:15.

construction workers but it's also hoped that from this Brownfield

sites new high-value industries will emerge. With so much uncertainty in

:05:20.:05:24.

economies around the world the challenge for Wales is to develop

:05:25.:05:28.

new industries with new opportunities but as well as that it

:05:29.:05:32.

is to have an environment that people want to work in and that can

Some football results for you and Cardiff City

It means Cardiff climb to 19th in the table,

:06:00.:06:04.

still three points clear of the bottom three.

:06:05.:06:07.

Not such a good afternoon for Newport County.

:06:08.:06:09.

Despite taking the lead they lost 2-1 at Wycombe and remain

:06:10.:06:12.

Let's see what the weather has in store.

:06:13.:06:18.

It's been a beautiful day. A lot of sunshine but cold out and about and

:06:19.:06:31.

it will be a cold night. Widespread frost forming and the potential for

:06:32.:06:40.

icy stretches. You will need to take care on untreated services. Cloud

:06:41.:06:48.

will increase in parts of the North. Temperatures getting down to minus

:06:49.:06:51.

one Celsius. Tomorrow high-pressure still in charge but this weather

:06:52.:06:55.

front is sneaking in and that will bring quite a bit of cloud. Less

:06:56.:06:58.

chance of seeing the blue skies that we saw today. First thing tomorrow,

:06:59.:07:04.

cloud increasing from the north. A chilly start to the day. The best of

:07:05.:07:07.

any bright as across the South and West. Cloudier in the North and

:07:08.:07:13.

where we have the clout there is potential for some rain. Not feeling

:07:14.:07:20.

as cold as today. Tomorrow night we will see more cloud around compared

:07:21.:07:24.

with night. The cloud thickening to produce a little bit of drizzle. It

:07:25.:07:30.

should be a frost free night. Temperatures now lower than for

:07:31.:07:34.

Celsius. As we head into Wednesday this weather front will push

:07:35.:07:38.

southwards and clear through and behind it it should become much

:07:39.:07:42.

drier and even brighter. First thing on Wednesday morning we will see

:07:43.:07:47.

more cloud around. A little bit of drizzle and becoming much drier by

:07:48.:07:48.

the time we get into the afternoon. We'll be back with our next update
