Hello. This time of year, if you're in shelter with
plenty of sunshine, it'll start to
feel quite warm - dare I say it? - almost spring-like,
and that's exactly what we had in western areas on Wednesday,
plenty of sunshine,
a glorious sunset in parts of Wales after a glorious day.
But it was a different story further east - plenty of cloud.
It was cold and grey for most of the day, and it looks likely that
the cloud and the cold feel will win out over the next few days.
But with that sunshine out to the west, temperatures responded -
11 degrees under the cloud.
With the strength of the breeze coming in off that cold North Sea,
we barely saw temperatures above three or four Celsius.
And, as I say, it looks as though that cloud is likely to be the story
for the remainder of this week,
and it's going to feel noticeably colder out there.
Winter has not gone away,
and some of those showers will be of sleet and snow,
chiefly to higher ground but maybe even a dusting at lower levels,
all due to an area of high pressure in Scandinavia
driving in this colder flow across that cold North Sea,
and so most of the showers are likely to be across the east coast,
showers of rain and sleet perhaps close to the coast,
but come just further inland and add a little bit of height,
there will be some wintry sleet and snow showers to come.
Further west, there'll be more cloud on Thursday drifting across to the
west coast, and so temperatures not quite as great, two to four Celsius.
We might see six or seven
in the extreme south-west and the Channel Isles.
Now, as we move out of Thursday into Friday, there's a greater
chance of some of those showers just penetrating
a little further inland, so we could see a couple of centimetres or
so to higher ground and a dusting at lower levels.
But not much change in the pressure pattern -
the high pressure still with us on Friday and still running the risk
of further showers across eastern Scotland and eastern England.
A cloudy, cold day to come on Friday.
Factor in the strength of the wind, as well,
and it is going to feel pretty dismal out there.
You'll need to wrap up warm.
Friday looks likely to be the coldest day of the week,
two to four, maybe five degrees if we're lucky.
Not much change for the start of the weekend, either.
Further east, you're always running the risk of seeing
a wintry mix of showers to come, a breezy day,
a cloudy day and temperatures really struggling.
So, yes, you will need a couple of extra layers if you're out
and about for any length of time as those temperatures on your
thermometer probably sitting around four or five degrees.
It may feel even colder.
Sunday a different day, but the same old shade of grey. A lot of cloud.
It's going to stay largely dry,
rather breezy and again feeling quite cold.
But as we go into Monday, Tuesday, this area of low pressure looks
likely to try to spill some milder air and some wetter weather
with it, but the high pressure starts to sink south.
That's going to really push that area of low pressure out of the way.
It's a real bully, and it's going to strengthen the winds,
which will be quite important.
So, we start off the early part of next week with
a high across Scandinavia, this easterly flow.
As the high then sinks south,
it's going to centre itself potentially close to the Alps,
and that's going to drag in the strength of the wind,
but coming from a southerly direction.
Now, if this was the summer, we'd have glorious warmth and
sunshine to go with it, but don't get too excited.
But it does mean that there's a potential for a change in the story.
We could see some breezier weather, yes, but milder with it,
and because the high pressure's still in that driving seat,
it does look likely to stay mostly dry.
More from me over the next couple of days.
