Hello. Not a great start to the week for many parts of the UK.

0:00:020:00:04

It's quite windy, fairly chilly,

0:00:040:00:06

and there was a good deal of rain to be had as well.

0:00:060:00:08

An interesting week ahead, though,

0:00:080:00:10

because it's going to get colder and colder

0:00:100:00:11

and as that cold air becomes firmly in place across the UK,

0:00:110:00:14

we're going to see some snow showers developing and some of that snow

0:00:140:00:17

later on this week could get down to much lower levels.

0:00:170:00:20

That's one to keep a pretty close eye on.

0:00:200:00:22

A chilly start to the day today,

0:00:220:00:23

but no snow, just a chilly start,

0:00:230:00:25

but a bright start for many central and eastern areas.

0:00:250:00:27

The best of the sunshine here through the morning.

0:00:270:00:30

More cloud by the afternoon as some patchy rain drifts its way

0:00:300:00:32

from west to east and after a chilly start to the day,

0:00:320:00:35

most of us will stay in single figures, seven, eight, nine degrees

0:00:350:00:38

will be fairly typical, but a few places

0:00:380:00:40

out towards the west may well just about get into double figures.

0:00:400:00:43

Through the evening, a bit of patchy rain for a time,

0:00:430:00:45

East Anglia and the south-east

0:00:450:00:47

as more rain comes into the north-west.

0:00:470:00:48

That sinks its way south so that by dawn on Wednesday

0:00:480:00:51

there's a lot of cloud around, some rain through the Midlands,

0:00:510:00:54

some showers into the north and west of the UK and again quite chilly,

0:00:540:00:57

most places starting off well into single figures.

0:00:570:00:59

But it will be a windy day on Wednesday, very blustery winds

0:00:590:01:02

bringing some snow showers into the north and west.

0:01:020:01:05

The snow mainly over higher grounds,

0:01:050:01:06

but the further south and east you are,

0:01:060:01:08

you should be mostly fine and dry and actually relatively mild,

0:01:080:01:11

ten, 11 or 12 degrees, but a good deal colder further north.

0:01:110:01:14

On the subject of cold, it's been extremely cold for some parts

0:01:140:01:16

of southern and eastern Europe,

0:01:160:01:18

staying very cold in the south of Europe

0:01:180:01:20

through into Thursday, but through Germany, Poland,

0:01:200:01:22

becoming a little bit less cold over the next couple of days.

0:01:220:01:25

Back on our shores,

0:01:250:01:26

through Thursday the winds are still coming in

0:01:260:01:28

from the north or north-west.

0:01:280:01:29

The air's coming down from Iceland, from Greenland.

0:01:290:01:31

Yes, it's going to be a cold day on Thursday,

0:01:310:01:33

a blustery day as well,

0:01:330:01:35

with snow showers in the north and west of the UK,

0:01:350:01:37

some of those getting down to slightly lower levels

0:01:370:01:39

and a chilly feel to things.

0:01:390:01:40

We're well into single figures, then you factor in the winds,

0:01:400:01:43

and for many places it's going to feel like it is sub-zero.

0:01:430:01:46

It's going to feel more like minus two,

0:01:460:01:48

minus three degrees

0:01:480:01:49

in Glasgow, Belfast, Newcastle and Manchester as well.

0:01:490:01:53

So a cold day on Thursday with some snow showers

0:01:530:01:56

and then through Thursday night into Friday,

0:01:560:01:58

a real squeeze in the isobars along the eastern side of the UK

0:01:580:02:02

as the winds continue to come from a long way north,

0:02:020:02:04

so very blustery for eastern Scotland,

0:02:040:02:06

eastern England and with that comes the risk of snow showers

0:02:060:02:09

and some of those again could get down to quite low levels

0:02:090:02:11

and further snow showers in the north and west again on Friday

0:02:110:02:15

and again we are in single figures across the board

0:02:150:02:17

if again you factor in the wind.

0:02:170:02:19

As we head towards the weekend, the winds are now coming in

0:02:190:02:22

from the north-west and weather systems on that wind

0:02:220:02:24

will be bringing a mixture of rain, sleet and some snow.

0:02:240:02:27

Most of the snow on the leading edge of this weather system,

0:02:270:02:30

which will work its way ever eastwards

0:02:300:02:31

and then it turns back to rain,

0:02:310:02:33

but it'll be rain mostly drifting south across England and Wales,

0:02:330:02:36

maybe a bit of snow over higher ground.

0:02:360:02:38

It looks pretty cold into the start of the weekend.

0:02:380:02:40

Second part of the weekend looks equally cold with the winds

0:02:400:02:43

coming down from the north.

0:02:430:02:44

Maybe a bit more from the north-west,

0:02:440:02:46

maybe from the north-east, but either way,

0:02:460:02:48

it looks like it'll be pretty chilly with that northerly wind.

0:02:480:02:51

Then into the coming week, it looks like we'll change

0:02:510:02:54

that wind direction to something more of a westerly wind

0:02:540:02:56

and with that air coming from the middle of the Atlantic,

0:02:560:02:59

it shouldn't be quite so cold,

0:02:590:03:01

but I think it'll be unsettled in the north and west of the UK.

0:03:010:03:03

There'll be weather systems moving through.

0:03:030:03:05

There'll be some spells of rain at times,

0:03:050:03:07

with those areas of low pressure, but further south,

0:03:070:03:09

it looks like high pressure will be the dominant force,

0:03:090:03:11

so with that comes some more settled conditions,

0:03:110:03:13

but also the risk of some fog and frost, but generally speaking,

0:03:130:03:17

it looks a little bit milder into the coming week.

0:03:170:03:20

A bit less windy too.

0:03:200:03:21

Most of any rain we see is likely in the north and west of the UK.

0:03:210:03:24

A good deal drier in the south and east.

0:03:240:03:26

There'll be another update tomorrow night.
