Hello. It's been a relatively quiet winter so far,

0:00:020:00:04

certainly not as stormy as last winter, nor as wet and windy.

0:00:040:00:07

There hasn't been that much snowfall, a lot of dry weather.

0:00:070:00:11

There have been periods of frost and fog,

0:00:110:00:13

and the fog is back with a vengeance now.

0:00:130:00:16

The next couple of days, it could be a real problem.

0:00:160:00:18

Some disruption possible. There are warnings out from the Met Office.

0:00:180:00:21

Check out your BBC local radio station or go online for the

0:00:210:00:23

latest details where you are.

0:00:230:00:25

The worst of the fog on Monday probably across

0:00:250:00:27

more south-eastern parts of the UK.

0:00:270:00:29

Where you've got fog, it could stick around for much of the day,

0:00:290:00:31

keeping it particularly chilly, but that said,

0:00:310:00:34

actually a lot of fine weather out there on Monday, and

0:00:340:00:36

hopefully where you are you'll see something in the way of sunshine.

0:00:360:00:39

And with light winds, temperatures will bounce back quite nicely.

0:00:390:00:42

Seven to nine degrees cross parts of the West Country should feel

0:00:420:00:45

very nice indeed.

0:00:450:00:46

Where the fog and the murk linger, it'll be a different story.

0:00:460:00:49

Some eastern areas will struggle to get much above freezing.

0:00:490:00:52

So a lot of variety in temperatures

0:00:520:00:54

depending on how much sunshine you see.

0:00:540:00:56

Further north and west, there's some fine weather around, a few lingering

0:00:560:00:59

fog patches, but for the vast majority it shouldn't be too bad.

0:00:590:01:01

This is three o'clock in the afternoon.

0:01:010:01:03

Not exactly warm, but with light winds and some sunshine,

0:01:030:01:05

it shouldn't feel too bad.

0:01:050:01:07

As we head into the evening and night, with light winds,

0:01:070:01:10

that's going to allow the fog to re-form again,

0:01:100:01:13

not necessarily in exactly the same areas.

0:01:130:01:15

It looks as if some central and perhaps northern parts of

0:01:150:01:18

England could be prone to some thicker fog by Tuesday morning.

0:01:180:01:21

A different story for Scotland and Northern Ireland,

0:01:210:01:23

patchy rain pushing in from the west and a breeze here.

0:01:230:01:26

And that will introduce some milder air, actually,

0:01:260:01:29

to Scotland, Northern Ireland.

0:01:290:01:30

Double figures in some places

0:01:300:01:31

in the western fringes of England and Wales.

0:01:310:01:33

Further south and east, despite some sunshine,

0:01:330:01:35

once the fog clears, it will again be quite chilly.

0:01:350:01:39

As we head towards the middle of the week,

0:01:390:01:41

just notice how the isobars get closer together. That's a good sign.

0:01:410:01:45

That means the winds will freshen up, clearing most of the fog,

0:01:450:01:49

so fog shouldn't be so much of an issue on Wednesday, we think.

0:01:490:01:51

Particularly strong winds across the north-west,

0:01:510:01:53

with this approaching weather front bringing some patchy rain

0:01:530:01:56

into the west of Scotland in particular,

0:01:560:01:58

but again mild across the north-west, double figures,

0:01:580:02:00

chilly despite some sunshine further south and east.

0:02:000:02:03

And that theme will continue to Thursday.

0:02:030:02:05

In fact, we're going to start to tap into some colder air from the

0:02:050:02:08

near Continent around that block of high pressure still.

0:02:080:02:11

I think Thursday could be a particularly raw day,

0:02:110:02:14

with those cold winds, and despite some sunshine across some

0:02:140:02:18

central and eastern parts of England in particular,

0:02:180:02:20

temperatures will struggle to get

0:02:200:02:22

much higher than, what, two or three degrees.

0:02:220:02:25

Further west, it won't exactly be warm, with a stiff southerly wind,

0:02:250:02:29

but the wind will again push those weather fronts offshore,

0:02:290:02:32

so for the majority of us again on Thursday it should be a dry day.

0:02:320:02:35

Big question marks by the end of the week as to how quickly these fronts

0:02:350:02:39

push in again, so don't take the position of this too literally.

0:02:390:02:41

It could be further west or east, but patchy rain trying to push in.

0:02:410:02:45

Having said that, many eastern areas will again have a dry day,

0:02:450:02:48

albeit quite a chilly one.

0:02:480:02:50

It does look as if by the weekend the fronts will start to push in

0:02:500:02:53

across the country.

0:02:530:02:54

How quickly that happens is very uncertain,

0:02:540:02:57

but what they will introduce eventually is an Atlantic feed,

0:02:570:03:00

milder winds, driven by a strengthening jet stream

0:03:000:03:04

through this weekend.

0:03:040:03:05

The jet stream is focused across the north-west of the UK,

0:03:050:03:09

and actually, beyond the weekend,

0:03:090:03:11

this is where most of the wet and windy weather will be.

0:03:110:03:14

Furthest away from the jet stream, it stays mostly dry.

0:03:140:03:17

So as we end the month, it does look like a north-west/south-east split.

0:03:170:03:20

Certainly milder than recently, wettest and windiest across

0:03:200:03:23

the north-west, but further south

0:03:230:03:25

and east, this dry winter continues. I'll update you again tomorrow.
