Hello, it's proving to be a weekend of huge variety

0:00:020:00:03

up and down the UK. Though with one common denominator,

0:00:030:00:06

as we'll see in a moment. I'll show you what I mean

0:00:060:00:08

with the help of some weather-watcher pictures actually.

0:00:080:00:11

Some hard, hard frosts around, temperatures well below freezing

0:00:110:00:13

in some places overnight. For others we've seen

0:00:130:00:16

a whole lot of sunshine by day - this beautiful shot taken

0:00:160:00:18

from Cumbria on Saturday. There have been some areas of mist

0:00:180:00:22

and thicker fog patches persisting all day in some places,

0:00:220:00:25

this shot taken from the Central Belt of Scotland.

0:00:250:00:27

And for others it's stayed disappointingly gloomy

0:00:270:00:30

for much of the time, as we've seen here in mid-Wales.

0:00:300:00:33

But for all of us the common theme is - it's cold out there.

0:00:330:00:37

Now there is milder air lying in wait out in the Atlantic,

0:00:370:00:40

the big question mark is - how quickly will it get to our shores?

0:00:410:00:45

As the milder air arrives we'll see these weather fronts

0:00:450:00:47

delivering some wind and some and rain. Actually, a few showers,

0:00:470:00:51

even on Sunday, across the more northern and western areas.

0:00:510:00:54

No great amount but there's snow coming out of some of those showers,

0:00:540:00:57

especially up over the high ground but for many places

0:00:570:00:59

it will stay dry and there'll be plenty of sunshine

0:00:590:01:02

across the more southern and eastern parts of England in particular.

0:01:020:01:05

Here's a snapshot - three o'clock in the afternoon.

0:01:050:01:08

Lovely afternoon if you wear a few layers.

0:01:080:01:10

Might make eight degrees along the south coast but for most of us

0:01:100:01:13

four or five is the best I can offer you briefly,

0:01:130:01:16

through the early to mid part of the afternoon.

0:01:160:01:18

There's that cloud further north and west. The odd shower,

0:01:180:01:21

maybe a flake or two of snow up over the Pennines

0:01:210:01:24

and parts of southern Scotland too. Some breaks in the cloud, though,

0:01:240:01:27

for Northern Ireland and most of Scotland will be dry,

0:01:270:01:29

though we could see some of those fog patches lingering

0:01:290:01:32

well on through the day.

0:01:320:01:34

Talking of fog, that's going to become more of an issue through

0:01:340:01:37

Sunday night and into Monday morning, particularly

0:01:370:01:40

across the southern half of the UK, some really thick patches around.

0:01:400:01:45

Not just on Monday, but on Tuesday as well. On Tuesday

0:01:450:01:48

it could be even more of a problem. I'm expecting some disruption,

0:01:480:01:51

particularly through England and Wales, so watch out for

0:01:510:01:54

warnings, they could well be issued over the next few hours.

0:01:540:01:57

Now, once the fog has cleared, and it might not in some places,

0:01:570:02:00

there will be some brightness around but it will be chilly.

0:02:000:02:03

Further north and west, for Northern Ireland and Scotland,

0:02:030:02:06

more breeze here. Milder weather beginning to come in

0:02:060:02:09

off the Atlantic. The milder air also bringing more moisture

0:02:090:02:12

and the prospect of some rain at some stage later on in the week.

0:02:120:02:17

But again, on Wednesday many places will be dry.

0:02:170:02:19

Some rain across Western Scotland but elsewhere dry.

0:02:190:02:22

The lightest of the winds across these more southern and

0:02:220:02:25

eastern areas but that chilly air holding on.

0:02:250:02:28

Now, through the second half of this week,

0:02:280:02:30

these fronts begin to push their way eastwards

0:02:300:02:33

but boy it's going to be a struggle. Which does mean there's

0:02:330:02:35

a big question mark about how quickly those fronts arrive from

0:02:350:02:39

the west and how quickly the milder air arrives as well.

0:02:390:02:41

So, I've put later in the week, rather than being specific about

0:02:410:02:44

Thursday or Friday. But the idea is that those fronts are staggering

0:02:440:02:48

from the east. The wind will pick up so that will tend to clear the

0:02:480:02:51

fog away but still a lot of dry weather across these more

0:02:510:02:54

central and eastern areas in particular,

0:02:540:02:56

that chilly air holding on.

0:02:560:02:58

But I think as we hit the weekend, and indeed beyond,

0:02:580:03:01

a strengthening jet stream should push those fronts through

0:03:010:03:04

and then we're into a sort of different regime as we end

0:03:040:03:07

the month.

0:03:070:03:08

Quite a powerful jet stream, particularly across the more

0:03:080:03:12

northern parts of the UK and this will be the focus for where the

0:03:120:03:15

rain-bearing weather systems will be. So to sum up the end of the

0:03:150:03:18

month, it will turn milder with winds off the Atlantic.

0:03:180:03:20

Wettest across the more northern and western areas,

0:03:200:03:23

where there will be a strong wind. Always driest the further south

0:03:230:03:26

and east we go. That's it, I'll update you again tomorrow.

0:03:260:03:29

I've lost weight, in't I? Aye, you're looking good.

0:03:310:03:34

I'm the Night Owl.

0:03:340:03:36

I'd wear this for pyjamas in my bed.
