Hello. We are not done with winter yet
and those of you who live across the eastern half of the UK
will know exactly what I'm talking about.
This Weather Watchers picture from Friday afternoon in Newcastle
really tells the scene -
a light dusting of snow, a cold feel
across the country and that story continues through the weekend.
A lot of cloud around,
the showers will be wintry in nature
and the wind will strengthen as well,
just making it feel even colder
if that's possible.
Now we'll start off with
some wintry showers stretching through
eastern Scotland across the north-east of England
and some of those will push
a little bit further westwards
through the course of the afternoon,
something that we've not seen in recent days,
so I suspect by three o'clock Saturday afternoon
there's likely to be a few showers,
showers chiefly of rain,
across the West Country,
but not a particularly warm feel
to the day, 3 or 4 degrees.
There'll be some showers or sleet
and snow mixed in there across Wales
and really it will be rain
close to the coastline
in the south-east corner,
but a cold feel when you add on
the strength of that wind.
Gales not out of the question,
with further snow showers
across the north of England.
Northern Ireland and north-west Scotland,
you will see the best of any brightness,
but again into eastern Scotland,
those nagging nuisance showers
set to continue and in fact
they'll enhance through the night
on Saturday into Sunday,
across the Pennines and the Peak District
for a time, yet more accumulations
of snow likely, but then as we go
through Sunday, a brisk easterly wind,
but it's likely that we'll see
the snow showers turning back to rain.
To the north and south perhaps
something a little bit drier
and perhaps brighter into the north-west,
but still not particularly warm.
Now as we move out of Sunday into Monday,
we will start to see the isobars squeezing up,
the wind strengthening again,
but starting to swing round to a south-easterly,
so there is a glimmer of hope
in the story as we look further ahead.
On Monday, there'll be a little more
in the way of sunshine
breaking up that cloud, that breeze,
a little bit of drier air, not...
not quite as cold as it has been,
5 to 8 degrees the high.
As we move out of Monday into Tuesday,
we'll start to see the winds really slowly pivoting around from
a south-easterly eventually to a southerly direction.
This weather front likely to threaten
into the south-west.
It might bring some cloud
and outbreaks of rain,
but it'll start to, again,
bring a slightly less cold feel
across the country, 6 to 11, double digits
in the far south-west.
As we move into Wednesday,
more of a southerly flow,
a good deal of dry weather
is expected in the story,
lighter winds, so if you get
some sunshine coming through,
10, 12 degrees will certainly feel
much better than it has done of late.
So, as we go on to the latter stages of the week,
it looks likely... it's going to be a slow process
but this milder air will push right across the country
and we've lost that bitterly cold
As we look further afield,
the six- to ten-day period,
that area of high pressure
that's so been dominant
just recently, if that sits close
towards France, there's the potential
of allowing those areas of low pressure to move in
and that will bring some wet weather,
so something perhaps a little more mobile,
a little bit more unsettled,
however there is the potential
and this is the less likely scenario,
but if that high pressure drifts
a little bit further north
and just centres itself more across
England and Wales, the low pressures
will skip to the extreme north
and we're likely
to stay drier yet again.
That will cause a problem with some early morning frost and fog,
but once that lifts, we could see some dry weather
continuing into the longer
six- to ten-day period.
