Hello. Weather Watchers have been helping to paint

0:00:020:00:04

a very varied picture of the weather through this winter.

0:00:040:00:06

Not much rain, but even in the last 24 hours,

0:00:060:00:08

we've seen quite a lot of variety up and down the UK.

0:00:080:00:10

Some lovely sunshine for some.

0:00:100:00:13

This shot of the sunset in Pembrokeshire

0:00:130:00:15

taken earlier on. For others, though,

0:00:150:00:17

it's stayed persistently foggy.

0:00:170:00:19

Where the fog lingered, it was chilly.

0:00:190:00:21

In some places, that'll be the case again tomorrow.

0:00:210:00:23

That fog thickening up overnight.

0:00:230:00:25

Freezing fog could be quite disruptive by morning time.

0:00:250:00:28

Check out your BBC local radio station

0:00:280:00:30

or go online for the latest details where you are.

0:00:300:00:32

There are warnings in force from the Met Office.

0:00:320:00:34

You can see where most of the fog will be.

0:00:340:00:35

We think across some central and southern parts

0:00:350:00:37

of England and Wales through the morning.

0:00:370:00:39

Most of it clearing, but not all of it.

0:00:390:00:41

Some of it will linger. Having said that,

0:00:410:00:43

for many parts of England and Wales,

0:00:430:00:45

through the afternoon, we'll see some sunshine.

0:00:450:00:47

Temperatures not spectacularly high,

0:00:470:00:49

but with light winds, it shouldn't feel too bad,

0:00:490:00:52

out of those persistent foggy areas, that is.

0:00:520:00:55

Further north across the country,

0:00:550:00:57

we encounter temperatures a little bit higher,

0:00:570:00:59

particularly further into Scotland

0:00:590:01:01

and Northern Ireland.

0:01:010:01:02

Up into double figures in some places here.

0:01:020:01:04

More cloud around and some patchy rain,

0:01:040:01:07

particularly up over the western hills,

0:01:070:01:09

but no great amount.

0:01:090:01:10

10 degrees in Belfast.

0:01:100:01:12

Now, as we fast-forward to Wednesday,

0:01:130:01:15

the wind picking up even more

0:01:150:01:16

across some northern and western areas.

0:01:160:01:18

Still a fair bit of cloud,

0:01:180:01:19

but the rain-bearing fronts,

0:01:190:01:20

for the most part, kept at bay.

0:01:200:01:22

Further south and east,

0:01:220:01:23

again, it could be a foggy start

0:01:230:01:24

across some eastern counties of England,

0:01:240:01:26

but I think most of that fog will lift.

0:01:260:01:28

It shouldn't be as much of an issue.

0:01:280:01:30

Again, the brightness not feeling too bad,

0:01:300:01:31

but an edge to that wind -

0:01:310:01:33

just 4 degrees, for example, in Norwich.

0:01:330:01:34

That's a sign of things to come,

0:01:340:01:36

because as we head into Thursday,

0:01:360:01:38

we're going to start to tap into a reservoir

0:01:380:01:41

of really chilly air across Europe.

0:01:410:01:44

Much of Europe is still freezing cold.

0:01:440:01:46

That really cold air is going to get dragged up

0:01:460:01:49

across the UK during the course of Thursday

0:01:490:01:52

on a stiff old wind coming in from the south-east.

0:01:520:01:54

Wind chill will be high,

0:01:540:01:56

and some parts of central and eastern England,

0:01:560:01:59

for example, may struggle to get above freezing

0:01:590:02:02

all day long. A bitter day.

0:02:020:02:03

It could be one of the coldest days of the winter so far,

0:02:030:02:05

in actual fact.

0:02:050:02:06

Still, that breeze coming in

0:02:060:02:07

from the south-east on Friday.

0:02:070:02:08

Probably not as chilly by then,

0:02:080:02:10

and there are fronts out to the west as well,

0:02:100:02:12

which might just bring a little rain

0:02:120:02:14

into westernmost areas,

0:02:140:02:15

but most places on Friday will stay dry.

0:02:150:02:19

Still distinctly chilly

0:02:190:02:20

across those more eastern areas,

0:02:200:02:21

but probably not just as bitter

0:02:210:02:23

as it will be on Thursday.

0:02:230:02:25

On into Saturday.

0:02:250:02:27

Now, the wind starting to drift in from the west.

0:02:270:02:30

That is an indicator of milder conditions,

0:02:300:02:33

notice 10 degrees in London.

0:02:330:02:35

Across the board, temperatures will be higher on Saturday,

0:02:350:02:39

many of us still dry.

0:02:390:02:40

That milder theme will continue.

0:02:400:02:43

See the blue is beginning to retreat further away

0:02:430:02:46

into the near continent.

0:02:460:02:48

We look to the west for our weather

0:02:480:02:50

as we go through this weekend and indeed beyond.

0:02:500:02:53

The jet stream is going to start to steer weather systems

0:02:530:02:56

in from the Atlantic.

0:02:560:02:57

Most potent of these will be across the north-west of the UK,

0:02:570:03:01

closest to the jet stream.

0:03:010:03:03

Very little if any rain, you'll notice,

0:03:030:03:04

further south and east across the country,

0:03:040:03:07

as we look into the early part of next week.

0:03:070:03:09

In fact, as the month changes, as we head into February,

0:03:090:03:12

it's a similar pattern.

0:03:120:03:13

It will be milder than recently

0:03:130:03:15

with that Atlantic influence.

0:03:150:03:16

Wettest and windiest across the north-west,

0:03:160:03:19

but still mostly dry

0:03:190:03:20

across those more southern

0:03:200:03:22

and eastern areas.

0:03:220:03:23

I will explore that dry theme

0:03:230:03:25

in a bit more detail

0:03:250:03:26

if you join me again tomorrow.
