The weather turns pretty lively over the next few days.

0:00:020:00:04

We've got a fairly weak weather front

0:00:040:00:06

drifting southwards and eastwards overnight tonight.

0:00:060:00:08

Weak in terms of not much rain on it,

0:00:080:00:10

but, as it moves its way through,

0:00:100:00:11

you can see all these isobars which follow along behind,

0:00:110:00:14

turning very, very windy for the middle part of the week.

0:00:140:00:17

It'll be blowing a gale pretty much all day

0:00:170:00:19

northern England, northwards,

0:00:190:00:21

and that may well have some implications for travel

0:00:210:00:23

because some disruption is possible

0:00:230:00:25

on ferries, high-sided vehicles, that sort of thing.

0:00:250:00:28

But blowing a gale all day, northern England, northwards,

0:00:280:00:30

gusting to 60, 70mph in places, so do bear that in mind.

0:00:300:00:34

A fair number of showers coming in on that wind as well.

0:00:340:00:37

Turning wintry over the higher ground,

0:00:370:00:38

in Scotland in particular.

0:00:380:00:40

Further south and east you go, showers are few and far between.

0:00:400:00:42

Seven or eight degrees here.

0:00:420:00:44

But quite chilly further north - particularly in the wind.

0:00:440:00:46

And the wind continues to blow Wednesday night into Thursday.

0:00:460:00:49

The snow showers are starting to get down to quite low levels

0:00:490:00:52

in Scotland and in Northern Ireland and in northern England too.

0:00:520:00:54

Again, the further south and east you are,

0:00:540:00:57

it's largely fine and dry, but cold across the board.

0:00:570:00:59

In fact, there'll be a touch of frost in northern England

0:00:590:01:01

and further north as well,

0:01:010:01:03

and maybe some icy patches to go with that.

0:01:030:01:05

But some rain is gathering towards

0:01:050:01:06

the south and west of the UK into Thursday.

0:01:060:01:08

Question marks about just how far north it goes,

0:01:080:01:11

but it looks like it will get across much of Wales

0:01:110:01:13

and many southern counties of England as well.

0:01:130:01:15

Question marks, too, about how much cold air gets into the mix,

0:01:150:01:17

and that has a knock-on effect on how much snow we'd like to see.

0:01:170:01:20

Likely to be at least some for South Wales,

0:01:200:01:22

in the hills of southern England too,

0:01:220:01:24

but a lot of rain as well.

0:01:240:01:26

North of that, it's brighter, some sunny spells,

0:01:260:01:28

but also some further wintry showers.

0:01:280:01:30

It really will feel cold, particularly in the wind,

0:01:300:01:32

it's going to feel more like it's around minus three

0:01:320:01:34

in Glasgow and Newcastle.

0:01:340:01:36

That first low moves away Thursday night into Friday.

0:01:360:01:38

Another low comes down from the North Sea

0:01:380:01:40

as we get on into Friday.

0:01:400:01:42

Lots of isobars on the chart for the end of the week.

0:01:420:01:44

It's a cold wind blowing down from the north.

0:01:440:01:46

Some wintry showers for the eastern and western coast,

0:01:460:01:49

but inland, it should be cold but bright.

0:01:490:01:51

Top temperatures only about six or seven degrees,

0:01:510:01:54

factor in in the wind again, and it will feel chilly.

0:01:540:01:56

The wind continues to come down from the north

0:01:560:01:58

as we head on into the weekend.

0:01:580:02:00

This weak weather front won't bring too much

0:02:000:02:02

in the way of rain, sleet or snow,

0:02:020:02:04

but there might just be some along the eastern coast.

0:02:040:02:06

Head inland, and it's largely dry, variable cloud,

0:02:060:02:08

some sunshine to be had,

0:02:080:02:10

and it won't do much for the temperatures.

0:02:100:02:12

Again, it's another cold day. Just three degrees in Glasgow,

0:02:120:02:14

only six or so for Cardiff and for London.

0:02:140:02:17

As we head into the second part of the weekend,

0:02:170:02:19

for the most part, things are settling down

0:02:190:02:21

as this ridge of high pressure builds in, but not completely dry.

0:02:210:02:24

Looks like there will be some cloud and outbreaks of rain,

0:02:240:02:27

particularly around some Irish Sea coast, into parts of Wales.

0:02:270:02:29

May be some wetter weather, too, into Northern Ireland,

0:02:290:02:32

and the odd spot of rain further south.

0:02:320:02:33

But the further east you are, it looks dry and bright,

0:02:330:02:36

but again, it's on the chilly side.

0:02:360:02:37

We are still firmly in single figures across the board.

0:02:370:02:40

Then, as we had on into the early part of the coming week,

0:02:400:02:43

we've got low pressure developing to the south and west of the UK.

0:02:430:02:46

That's moving its way ever northwards and eastwards

0:02:460:02:48

as high pressure begins to build in across the south of the UK.

0:02:480:02:52

So, early next week, we could well see this low

0:02:520:02:54

towards the north and the west of the UK.

0:02:540:02:56

May well bring some brisk winds and some outbreaks of rain.

0:02:560:02:58

Further south, much quieter with high pressure dominating.

0:02:580:03:01

Risk of frost and fog through the overnight periods.

0:03:010:03:04

Signs are that the high will drift its way towards Scandinavia,

0:03:040:03:08

and if that happens, on its southern flank,

0:03:080:03:10

going to develop this cold easterly wind,

0:03:100:03:12

and that, too, could bring some snow showers with it.

0:03:120:03:15

But there is some uncertainty about the movement

0:03:150:03:17

of that area of high pressure, but a lot of dry weather

0:03:170:03:20

if it does do what I've just described,

0:03:200:03:22

and it looks like it'll stay pretty cold for most places,

0:03:220:03:25

and still the risk of some wintry showers.

0:03:250:03:27

A further update same time tomorrow.
