weekend it is going to be feeling very different by the end of the

week with milder weather on the way. It does look like we see in the back

good deal of sunshine and dry weather on for tomorrow at least.

:04:25.:04:30.

Still fairly breezy on Tuesday and Wednesday, Tuesday has bright and

figures and by the end of the week, dry and mild weather on the way, so

:04:43.:04:47.

it's all change, especially after the weekend's events.

That's the news and weather in the South East this Sunday.

:04:49.:04:51.

We will be back during Breakfast tomorrow from 6 o'clock.

:04:52.:04:53.

For now, from all of us on the team, thank for watching.

cold, bleak and at times wintry. It provided some beautiful weather

:05:17.:05:20.

lying snow will be blown around by strong winds starting to develop.

:05:25.:05:29.

The odd spot of drizzle into the far north-east. The wind strengthening

:05:30.:05:37.

here. Already signs of something a little bit miles, temperatures

:05:38.:05:40.

climbing up. However it's not going to feel that warm straightaway.

:05:41.:05:45.

Because of the strength of the wind. The wind however will break up the

:05:46.:05:50.

cloud, so some sunshine into central and Southern areas. The cloud is

:05:51.:06:02.

thickening all the time. The odd bit of drizzle. Some sunny spells
