Hello, there.

0:00:000:00:02

Most of March so far has been pretty mild with fairly mild nights.

0:00:020:00:05

Not many places have seen frost in the past few weeks,

0:00:050:00:07

but that's all set to change.

0:00:070:00:09

In fact, the early spring flowers are in for a bit of

0:00:090:00:12

a shock as we're going to see much colder air moving in across

0:00:120:00:15

the country, to bring some wintry showers to many

0:00:150:00:18

and also overnight frosts.

0:00:180:00:20

That cold air will be pushing in from the north-west right

0:00:200:00:23

across the UK and will also bring with it plenty of showers,

0:00:230:00:27

but there will be some sunshine in between those showers.

0:00:270:00:30

For Monday, it looks like it will be

0:00:300:00:31

quite a wet affair across England and Wales,

0:00:310:00:33

with a weather front slowly pushing eastwards,

0:00:330:00:35

the rain becoming confined towards the south-eastern quadrant.

0:00:350:00:38

Behind it, though, much cooler, fresher air, but bright with some

0:00:380:00:41

sunshine, showers turning increasingly wintry across

0:00:410:00:44

Scotland and Northern Ireland, mainly over the high ground.

0:00:440:00:46

Temperatures here will be in single figures,

0:00:460:00:49

the last of the double digits across the south-east.

0:00:490:00:51

That rain clears away and a cold air plunges in its place

0:00:510:00:55

during the course of Monday night.

0:00:550:00:56

Plenty of showers moving into the north and the west.

0:00:560:00:59

These will be wintry over the hills, even down to lower levels.

0:00:590:01:02

We could even see some problems with ice first thing on Tuesday

0:01:020:01:05

and it will be a cold night across the board.

0:01:050:01:07

Now into Tuesday, low pressure always nearby,

0:01:070:01:10

fairly tightly packed isobars so it's going to be a blustery day,

0:01:100:01:13

lots of showers piling into northern and western areas,

0:01:130:01:16

but we do start off on a cold and a widespread frost across

0:01:160:01:20

the country, but bright with some sunshine for many central,

0:01:200:01:23

southern and eastern areas. Showers from the word go

0:01:230:01:25

across the north-west corner with an early ice risk.

0:01:250:01:28

Those showers also pushing towards Wales and the West Country

0:01:280:01:31

could even see some snow over the higher ground of Wales and

0:01:310:01:34

the moors and the tors of the south-west,

0:01:340:01:36

even down to lower levels across Scotland and Northern Ireland,

0:01:360:01:39

where it will feel really cold,

0:01:390:01:40

but widespread temperatures in single figures.

0:01:400:01:44

On into Wednesday, low pressure is still with us for much of

0:01:440:01:47

central and southern parts of the UK,

0:01:470:01:49

so we'll see quite a lot of cloud at times, fairly strong winds, too.

0:01:490:01:52

Looks like it will be fairly damp across many central and

0:01:520:01:55

southern parts of Britain, with some more persistent rain here,

0:01:550:01:58

but a cold start again for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

0:01:580:02:01

A little bit of frost around,

0:02:010:02:02

but some sunshine through the day and, again, a cold feel to

0:02:020:02:05

things, particularly when you add on a fairly strong north-easterly wind.

0:02:050:02:09

Low pressure is still with us as we head towards Thursday,

0:02:090:02:13

bringing a lot of cloud to England and Wales,

0:02:130:02:15

perhaps a little bit further north as well. Like I mentioned,

0:02:150:02:18

that north-easterly wind will make it feel quite raw in the north,

0:02:180:02:21

where it will start off on a cold note once again.

0:02:210:02:23

Some of this rain will have some snow over the high ground of

0:02:230:02:27

England and Wales.

0:02:270:02:29

On into Friday, this area of low pressure begins to ebb

0:02:290:02:32

a little bit further southwards and allows high pressure to

0:02:320:02:34

topple in across the north and begin to build in for many central

0:02:340:02:38

and northern areas. It looks like for Friday, a north-south split,

0:02:380:02:41

northern areas, a cold, frosty start, maybe a severe frost

0:02:410:02:44

in places, but dry with some brightness, staying damp

0:02:440:02:46

through central and southern areas with some rain and maybe

0:02:460:02:49

signs of temperatures just wanting to rise just that little bit.

0:02:490:02:53

Now, the scenario into next week and, in fact, beyond,

0:02:530:02:56

potentially into the start of April,

0:02:560:02:58

is for high-pressure to dominate much of the country.

0:02:580:03:00

Low pressure to the south with a zone of

0:03:000:03:03

maybe cloudier, damp weather across southern areas,

0:03:030:03:05

so this will be the set-up, with many northern areas starting off

0:03:050:03:08

cold, frosty with light winds and some sunshine.

0:03:080:03:11

Towards the south, though, cloudier skies with outbreaks of rain,

0:03:110:03:14

so for the north, largely dry thanks to that high-pressure.

0:03:140:03:16

The nights, though,

0:03:160:03:17

will be chilly with a continuation of overnight frost.

0:03:170:03:20

In the south, generally cloudy with some rain and always more of

0:03:200:03:23

a breeze in the south, which will be coming in from the east,

0:03:230:03:26

so winter is set to bite back.
