Hello. We are not done with winter yet

0:00:020:00:03

and those of you who live across the eastern half of the UK

0:00:030:00:06

will know exactly what I'm talking about.

0:00:060:00:08

This Weather Watchers picture from Friday afternoon in Newcastle

0:00:080:00:12

really tells the scene -

0:00:120:00:13

a light dusting of snow, a cold feel

0:00:130:00:16

across the country and that story continues through the weekend.

0:00:160:00:19

A lot of cloud around,

0:00:190:00:21

the showers will be wintry in nature

0:00:210:00:22

and the wind will strengthen as well,

0:00:220:00:24

just making it feel even colder

0:00:240:00:26

if that's possible.

0:00:260:00:27

Now we'll start off with

0:00:270:00:28

some wintry showers stretching through

0:00:280:00:30

eastern Scotland across the north-east of England

0:00:300:00:32

and some of those will push

0:00:320:00:33

a little bit further westwards

0:00:330:00:35

through the course of the afternoon,

0:00:350:00:37

something that we've not seen in recent days,

0:00:370:00:39

so I suspect by three o'clock Saturday afternoon

0:00:390:00:42

there's likely to be a few showers,

0:00:420:00:44

showers chiefly of rain,

0:00:440:00:45

across the West Country,

0:00:450:00:46

but not a particularly warm feel

0:00:460:00:48

to the day, 3 or 4 degrees.

0:00:480:00:49

There'll be some showers or sleet

0:00:490:00:51

and snow mixed in there across Wales

0:00:510:00:53

and really it will be rain

0:00:530:00:55

close to the coastline

0:00:550:00:56

in the south-east corner,

0:00:560:00:57

but a cold feel when you add on

0:00:570:00:58

the strength of that wind.

0:00:580:01:00

Gales not out of the question,

0:01:000:01:01

with further snow showers

0:01:010:01:02

across the north of England.

0:01:020:01:04

Northern Ireland and north-west Scotland,

0:01:040:01:06

you will see the best of any brightness,

0:01:060:01:08

but again into eastern Scotland,

0:01:080:01:10

those nagging nuisance showers

0:01:100:01:12

set to continue and in fact

0:01:120:01:13

they'll enhance through the night

0:01:130:01:15

on Saturday into Sunday,

0:01:150:01:16

across the Pennines and the Peak District

0:01:160:01:18

for a time, yet more accumulations

0:01:180:01:20

of snow likely, but then as we go

0:01:200:01:22

through Sunday, a brisk easterly wind,

0:01:220:01:24

but it's likely that we'll see

0:01:240:01:26

the snow showers turning back to rain.

0:01:260:01:28

To the north and south perhaps

0:01:280:01:30

something a little bit drier

0:01:300:01:31

and perhaps brighter into the north-west,

0:01:310:01:33

but still not particularly warm.

0:01:330:01:35

Now as we move out of Sunday into Monday,

0:01:350:01:38

we will start to see the isobars squeezing up,

0:01:380:01:41

the wind strengthening again,

0:01:410:01:42

but starting to swing round to a south-easterly,

0:01:420:01:44

so there is a glimmer of hope

0:01:440:01:46

in the story as we look further ahead.

0:01:460:01:48

On Monday, there'll be a little more

0:01:480:01:50

in the way of sunshine

0:01:500:01:51

breaking up that cloud, that breeze,

0:01:510:01:54

a little bit of drier air, not...

0:01:540:01:55

not quite as cold as it has been,

0:01:550:01:58

5 to 8 degrees the high.

0:01:580:02:00

As we move out of Monday into Tuesday,

0:02:000:02:02

we'll start to see the winds really slowly pivoting around from

0:02:020:02:05

a south-easterly eventually to a southerly direction.

0:02:050:02:08

This weather front likely to threaten

0:02:080:02:10

into the south-west.

0:02:100:02:11

It might bring some cloud

0:02:110:02:12

and outbreaks of rain,

0:02:120:02:14

but it'll start to, again,

0:02:140:02:15

bring a slightly less cold feel

0:02:150:02:17

across the country, 6 to 11, double digits

0:02:170:02:20

in the far south-west.

0:02:200:02:22

As we move into Wednesday,

0:02:220:02:24

more of a southerly flow,

0:02:240:02:25

a good deal of dry weather

0:02:250:02:26

is expected in the story,

0:02:260:02:28

lighter winds, so if you get

0:02:280:02:29

some sunshine coming through,

0:02:290:02:31

10, 12 degrees will certainly feel

0:02:310:02:33

much better than it has done of late.

0:02:330:02:35

So, as we go on to the latter stages of the week,

0:02:350:02:37

it looks likely... it's going to be a slow process

0:02:370:02:40

but this milder air will push right across the country

0:02:400:02:43

and we've lost that bitterly cold

0:02:430:02:45

wintry flavour.

0:02:450:02:47

As we look further afield,

0:02:470:02:48

the six- to ten-day period,

0:02:480:02:50

that area of high pressure

0:02:500:02:51

that's so been dominant

0:02:510:02:52

just recently, if that sits close

0:02:520:02:54

towards France, there's the potential

0:02:540:02:56

of allowing those areas of low pressure to move in

0:02:560:02:59

and that will bring some wet weather,

0:02:590:03:00

so something perhaps a little more mobile,

0:03:000:03:02

a little bit more unsettled,

0:03:020:03:04

however there is the potential

0:03:040:03:06

and this is the less likely scenario,

0:03:060:03:08

but if that high pressure drifts

0:03:080:03:09

a little bit further north

0:03:090:03:11

and just centres itself more across

0:03:110:03:12

England and Wales, the low pressures

0:03:120:03:14

will skip to the extreme north

0:03:140:03:16

and we're likely

0:03:160:03:17

to stay drier yet again.

0:03:170:03:19

That will cause a problem with some early morning frost and fog,

0:03:190:03:22

but once that lifts, we could see some dry weather

0:03:220:03:25

continuing into the longer

0:03:250:03:27

six- to ten-day period.

0:03:270:03:29

Take care.
