Hello there. Well, much of March has been fairly mild,

0:00:000:00:03

particularly across the southern half of the UK,

0:00:030:00:05

with temperatures a little above the seasonal average.

0:00:050:00:08

This weekend promises to be the last of the mild weather

0:00:080:00:11

for the foreseeable future, as things are set to turn colder

0:00:110:00:14

into next week. Now, for the weekend,

0:00:140:00:16

the Jet Stream has been running literally right across

0:00:160:00:19

the Atlantic in a west to east orientation,

0:00:190:00:22

bringing in cloud and weather fronts into our shores.

0:00:220:00:26

And it was pretty wet for many areas on Saturday.

0:00:260:00:28

For Sunday, we will see another band of rain affecting

0:00:280:00:31

the north-west corner of the UK, sinking slowly southwards and

0:00:310:00:34

eastwards into Northern England, Northern and Western Wales, with

0:00:340:00:37

conditions turning a bit brighter but showery and cooler behind it.

0:00:370:00:40

Ahead of it, though, we still have that mild air,

0:00:400:00:43

a lot of cloud, but given any brightness, it will feel very

0:00:430:00:45

mild with temperatures again reaching 15, maybe 16 Celsius.

0:00:450:00:49

Into Sunday night, that weather front sinks southwards,

0:00:490:00:52

taking some rain in towards southern and south-eastern areas

0:00:520:00:55

before more rain peps up across the south and the west

0:00:550:00:58

as we start Monday morning.

0:00:580:01:00

It will still be fairly mild to start the day for Monday

0:01:000:01:03

morning in the south, but cooler in the north.

0:01:030:01:05

That's the trend, really, for the next few days.

0:01:050:01:08

The blue colours will be invading, pushing out the orange colours.

0:01:080:01:11

It will feel noticeably cooler and will be showery as well,

0:01:110:01:15

and temperatures will be pretty low at night where we get

0:01:150:01:17

clear skies, with even a touch of frost returning.

0:01:170:01:20

Now, for Monday, this area of low pressure will bring some

0:01:200:01:23

fairly strong winds to the UK, certainly across Scotland.

0:01:230:01:25

Quite an active weather front,

0:01:250:01:27

it will bring some heavy rain to England and Wales for a time

0:01:270:01:31

through Monday, eventually clearing off in towards the North Sea.

0:01:310:01:34

Some brightness developing across Scotland and Northern Ireland

0:01:340:01:37

into the afternoon, but it will feel noticeably cooler here,

0:01:370:01:40

with some of the showers falling wintry over the higher ground.

0:01:400:01:43

We could make 11 to 14 Celsius across the south-east,

0:01:430:01:47

but the cooler air will move into all areas as we head through

0:01:470:01:49

the course of Monday into Tuesday.

0:01:490:01:52

So, we open the floodgates to the north-west,

0:01:520:01:54

this will bring a showery regime, with clear skies at night,

0:01:540:01:58

like I mentioned, we could see a return to frost in central

0:01:580:02:00

and northern areas in particular.

0:02:000:02:02

For Tuesday, a chilly start, still fairly breezy,

0:02:020:02:04

but there will be a lot of dry weather,

0:02:040:02:06

bright with some sunshine through central and eastern parts,

0:02:060:02:09

but temperatures really will feel lower than they have done

0:02:090:02:11

of late, five to maybe ten or 11 Celsius in the south-east.

0:02:110:02:15

Now, low pressure is never too far away as we head in

0:02:150:02:18

towards Wednesday, pushing towards the south,

0:02:180:02:20

so it looks like southern parts of Britain will see

0:02:200:02:22

most of the cloud with outbreaks of rain,

0:02:220:02:25

as an area of high pressure begins to topple in

0:02:250:02:27

towards the north-west.

0:02:270:02:28

So here, remaining cool in north-north-east winds.

0:02:280:02:31

To the south, something a bit cloudier,

0:02:310:02:33

a little bit wetter, and pulling in just

0:02:330:02:35

a little bit of milder air again into the south-east.

0:02:350:02:38

On Thursday, low pressure still with us across the south,

0:02:380:02:41

this area of high pressure continues to topple in across the north.

0:02:410:02:45

So, much of the northern half of the UK on Thursday will be fine.

0:02:450:02:48

Chilly once again, with a little bit of frost to start in places,

0:02:480:02:51

but central and southern areas tending to see more cloud

0:02:510:02:54

with outbreaks of rain, thanks to that area of low pressure nearby.

0:02:540:02:58

So, into the latter part of next week,

0:03:000:03:02

that area of high pressure which I showed you

0:03:020:03:04

toppling over actually dominates the UK potentially

0:03:040:03:07

for much of the end of the week.

0:03:070:03:09

So, what does that mean?

0:03:090:03:11

It's going to bring lot of fine, settled weather, we will lose

0:03:110:03:13

the rain across the south, so it should be drier for most.

0:03:130:03:16

The winds will remain light, thanks to that high pressure.

0:03:160:03:19

It will feel very pleasant by day in the strong late March sunshine,

0:03:190:03:23

but by night, given some clear skies,

0:03:230:03:25

we will see a return to some frost, so, gardeners beware!
