Hello. It's been a relatively quiet winter so far,
certainly not as stormy as last winter, nor as wet and windy.
There hasn't been that much snowfall, a lot of dry weather.
There have been periods of frost and fog,
and the fog is back with a vengeance now.
The next couple of days, it could be a real problem.
Some disruption possible. There are warnings out from the Met Office.
Check out your BBC local radio station or go online for the
latest details where you are.
The worst of the fog on Monday probably across
more south-eastern parts of the UK.
Where you've got fog, it could stick around for much of the day,
keeping it particularly chilly, but that said,
actually a lot of fine weather out there on Monday, and
hopefully where you are you'll see something in the way of sunshine.
And with light winds, temperatures will bounce back quite nicely.
Seven to nine degrees cross parts of the West Country should feel
very nice indeed.
Where the fog and the murk linger, it'll be a different story.
Some eastern areas will struggle to get much above freezing.
So a lot of variety in temperatures
depending on how much sunshine you see.
Further north and west, there's some fine weather around, a few lingering
fog patches, but for the vast majority it shouldn't be too bad.
This is three o'clock in the afternoon.
Not exactly warm, but with light winds and some sunshine,
it shouldn't feel too bad.
As we head into the evening and night, with light winds,
that's going to allow the fog to re-form again,
not necessarily in exactly the same areas.
It looks as if some central and perhaps northern parts of
England could be prone to some thicker fog by Tuesday morning.
A different story for Scotland and Northern Ireland,
patchy rain pushing in from the west and a breeze here.
And that will introduce some milder air, actually,
to Scotland, Northern Ireland.
Double figures in some places
in the western fringes of England and Wales.
Further south and east, despite some sunshine,
once the fog clears, it will again be quite chilly.
As we head towards the middle of the week,
just notice how the isobars get closer together. That's a good sign.
That means the winds will freshen up, clearing most of the fog,
so fog shouldn't be so much of an issue on Wednesday, we think.
Particularly strong winds across the north-west,
with this approaching weather front bringing some patchy rain
into the west of Scotland in particular,
but again mild across the north-west, double figures,
chilly despite some sunshine further south and east.
And that theme will continue to Thursday.
In fact, we're going to start to tap into some colder air from the
near Continent around that block of high pressure still.
I think Thursday could be a particularly raw day,
with those cold winds, and despite some sunshine across some
central and eastern parts of England in particular,
temperatures will struggle to get
much higher than, what, two or three degrees.
Further west, it won't exactly be warm, with a stiff southerly wind,
but the wind will again push those weather fronts offshore,
so for the majority of us again on Thursday it should be a dry day.
Big question marks by the end of the week as to how quickly these fronts
push in again, so don't take the position of this too literally.
It could be further west or east, but patchy rain trying to push in.
Having said that, many eastern areas will again have a dry day,
albeit quite a chilly one.
It does look as if by the weekend the fronts will start to push in
across the country.
How quickly that happens is very uncertain,
but what they will introduce eventually is an Atlantic feed,
milder winds, driven by a strengthening jet stream
through this weekend.
The jet stream is focused across the north-west of the UK,
and actually, beyond the weekend,
this is where most of the wet and windy weather will be.
Furthest away from the jet stream, it stays mostly dry.
So as we end the month, it does look like a north-west/south-east split.
Certainly milder than recently, wettest and windiest across
the north-west, but further south
and east, this dry winter continues. I'll update you again tomorrow.
