After all the recent issues with snow and ice and strong winds,

1:00:211:00:24

you may be pleased to hear that we've got

1:00:241:00:25

a quieter prospect through the week ahead.

1:00:251:00:27

Fairly benign conditions.

1:00:271:00:29

But in the short-term, we've still got a bit of a wintry issue

1:00:291:00:31

with rain spreading in from the west,

1:00:311:00:33

encountering cold air lodged across eastern England.

1:00:331:00:36

We could see a period of sleet and snow

1:00:361:00:38

for the likes of East Anglia, maybe the far south-east.

1:00:381:00:40

Certainly some icy conditions here first thing in the morning.

1:00:401:00:43

To the west of London, you'll notice temperatures

1:00:431:00:45

that bit higher, so there'll be rain coming out of the sky

1:00:451:00:48

at 10 o'clock in the morning. A damp and dreary Sunday morning.

1:00:481:00:51

A lot of mist and murk up over the high ground as well.

1:00:511:00:53

But it will be milder.

1:00:531:00:55

Up to 7, 8, 9 degrees quite widely,

1:00:551:00:57

and 10 degrees as we start today in Belfast.

1:00:571:01:01

A bit chillier still across the east of Scotland.

1:01:011:01:03

But for most places, it will feel milder

1:01:031:01:05

than it has done for some time.

1:01:051:01:07

The catch is it'll be damp and dreary.

1:01:071:01:09

There will be some drier spells developing across eastern parts

1:01:091:01:12

of England and also out west but through the central areas

1:01:121:01:15

I'm expecting further pulses of rain.

1:01:151:01:17

That's quite an important dividing line because to the west of that,

1:01:171:01:20

it's going to be mild, double figures.

1:01:201:01:22

To the east, that cold air hangs on through the afternoon.

1:01:221:01:25

Just 2 degrees there in Norwich.

1:01:251:01:28

As we head into the night, we'll continue to see these pulses of

1:01:281:01:31

rain pushing through central parts of the UK

1:01:311:01:34

and on into Monday as well,

1:01:341:01:36

by which time, hopefully some brightness developing

1:01:361:01:38

across parts of East Anglia and the south-east but not much in

1:01:381:01:41

the way of sunshine for most of us.

1:01:411:01:43

It does stay chilly, though, across these more eastern areas.

1:01:431:01:46

Just 5 or 6 degrees typically,

1:01:461:01:47

compared to the milder conditions further north and west.

1:01:471:01:51

Now for Monday into Tuesday, I think much of the rain

1:01:511:01:53

will tend to fade away.

1:01:531:01:54

It'll continue across the far north for a time,

1:01:541:01:56

courtesy of that weather front.

1:01:561:01:57

High pressure beginning to build in,

1:01:571:01:59

the weather starting to settle down, a lot of dry weather.

1:01:591:02:02

Best of the sunshine across East Anglia and the south-east but

1:02:021:02:04

ironically this is where the chilliest air will still be.

1:02:041:02:07

Just 4, 5, 6 degrees,

1:02:071:02:09

compared with the milder conditions further north and west.

1:02:091:02:11

So that is the story through the early part of next week.

1:02:111:02:14

Clear skies, yes, with some sunshine by day

1:02:141:02:17

but some fairly sharp frosts.

1:02:171:02:19

As low as -7 degrees perhaps in some rural areas.

1:02:191:02:22

By day, with the help of some sunshine,

1:02:221:02:24

we'll get up to around 5 or 6 degrees.

1:02:241:02:26

Further north and west, it will be milder and, in fact,

1:02:261:02:30

it'll feel quite pleasant, I think, with some sunshine,

1:02:301:02:33

but there won't be much in the way of sunshine -

1:02:331:02:35

a fair bit of cloud out there.

1:02:351:02:37

Temperatures, though, doing pretty well,

1:02:371:02:38

up into double figures in a good few places.

1:02:381:02:41

By the time we reach the middle of the week,

1:02:411:02:43

I think things starting to even themselves out a little bit.

1:02:431:02:46

So not just as chilly across these more southern and eastern areas

1:02:461:02:49

perhaps, and not just as mild across the north-west.

1:02:491:02:52

So most places stuck in single figures.

1:02:521:02:55

A fair bit of cloud around.

1:02:551:02:56

Hopefully where you are, you'll see something in the way of brightness.

1:02:561:02:59

Similarly on Thursday, there'll be lightish winds,

1:02:591:03:02

mostly dry conditions, a fair bit of cloud,

1:03:021:03:04

some glimpses of sunshine,

1:03:041:03:06

and temperatures mid to high single figures typically.

1:03:061:03:09

High pressure still in control, then, as we end the week.

1:03:091:03:13

It's showing no signs of going anywhere fast.

1:03:131:03:15

It is keeping the rain-bearing weather fronts mostly at bay,

1:03:151:03:18

so a lot of dry weather out there.

1:03:181:03:20

And that's because we've got a huge, great block in the jet stream.

1:03:201:03:23

The jet being diverted well to the north and to the east of the UK,

1:03:231:03:28

keeping those rain-bearing weather fronts well at bay.

1:03:281:03:30

And whilst we've got that big kink in the jet stream,

1:03:301:03:33

that high pressure is liable to stay in residence.

1:03:331:03:36

So a mostly dry prospect through next weekend, lightish winds,

1:03:361:03:40

where the skies clear, we could see some frost

1:03:401:03:42

and perhaps some patches of fog floating around as well.

1:03:421:03:45

That's it. I'll update you again tomorrow.
