changeable weather Into the start of the new week,

changeable weather to say the least. Good evening, mixed, unsettled,

:00:00.:00:12.

changeable, many words you could use to describe the weather we've had in

:00:13.:00:15.

the last week but heatwave would not be one of them. That is a far cry

:00:16.:00:19.

from the weather we have been seeing across southern Europe. Today was

:00:20.:00:23.

another day of dangerous heat in places from the Balkans westwards

:00:24.:00:27.

towards southern Spain, temperatures well up into the 40s, close to 45

:00:28.:00:31.

degrees in parts of southern Spain, a lot of this down to the jet

stream, southern Europe is on the southern side of the jet stream and

:00:36.:00:39.

we are on the northern side of it, the cold side of the jet stream. It

is the jet stream, the winds high in the atmosphere, that pushes the

weather systems around the globe. And you can see we have a queue of

them waiting in the wings to moving over the next few days. The weekend

:00:53.:00:56.

essentially stays pretty changeable with a mixture of sunshine and heavy

:00:57.:01:01.

showers and generally a rather cool feel to the weather. Back to the

:01:02.:01:05.

here and now, this evening and tonight, Central and eastern areas

:01:06.:01:08.

largely dry with a passing shower, more showers in Northern Ireland and

:01:09.:01:12.

Scotland, which will drift into Wales and the south-west and

:01:13.:01:16.

temperatures of 9-15. Tomorrow is a day of sunshine and showers but

:01:17.:01:19.

particularly in the morning across Wales at the south-west and then

:01:20.:01:22.

later through the Midlands, East Anglia and eventually the

:01:23.:01:25.

south-east, we will see some really heavy showers drifting through with

:01:26.:01:28.

hail and thunder. It could give a lot of rain in a short space of

:01:29.:01:32.

time. Further north, not as many showers but there could still be the

:01:33.:01:36.

odd hefty downpour later in the day, the showers should ease away to some

:01:37.:01:40.

extent for Northern Ireland and north-west Scotland but temperatures

:01:41.:01:45.

disappointing for August, 16-21. As the World Championship athletics

continues in London, there could well be heavy, Bunbury showers in

the afternoon but the risk of a shower decreases as we go into the

:01:52.:01:55.

evening. That is the story for just about all of us. Things become

:01:56.:02:00.

largely dry with clear spells and a ridge of high pressure building, and

:02:01.:02:04.

with light winds, and unusually cold night for August, surprisingly cold

:02:05.:02:08.

I suspect if you live in the countryside, look at the

:02:09.:02:11.

temperatures, maybe two degrees in the sheltered glens of Scotland,

:02:12.:02:15.

otherwise single digits and even a touch of grass frost in places.

:02:16.:02:20.

After a cool start, a dry day for many on Sunday, particularly central

:02:21.:02:24.

and eastern areas, more cloudy to the West with rain splashing

:02:25.:02:28.

sporadically in later in the day and temperatures 15-22.
