Hello. Weather Watchers have been helping to paint
a very varied picture of the weather through this winter.
Not much rain, but even in the last 24 hours,
we've seen quite a lot of variety up and down the UK.
Some lovely sunshine for some.
This shot of the sunset in Pembrokeshire
taken earlier on. For others, though,
it's stayed persistently foggy.
Where the fog lingered, it was chilly.
In some places, that'll be the case again tomorrow.
That fog thickening up overnight.
Freezing fog could be quite disruptive by morning time.
Check out your BBC local radio station
or go online for the latest details where you are.
There are warnings in force from the Met Office.
You can see where most of the fog will be.
We think across some central and southern parts
of England and Wales through the morning.
Most of it clearing, but not all of it.
Some of it will linger. Having said that,
for many parts of England and Wales,
through the afternoon, we'll see some sunshine.
Temperatures not spectacularly high,
but with light winds, it shouldn't feel too bad,
out of those persistent foggy areas, that is.
Further north across the country,
we encounter temperatures a little bit higher,
particularly further into Scotland
and Northern Ireland.
Up into double figures in some places here.
More cloud around and some patchy rain,
particularly up over the western hills,
but no great amount.
10 degrees in Belfast.
Now, as we fast-forward to Wednesday,
the wind picking up even more
across some northern and western areas.
Still a fair bit of cloud,
but the rain-bearing fronts,
for the most part, kept at bay.
Further south and east,
again, it could be a foggy start
across some eastern counties of England,
but I think most of that fog will lift.
It shouldn't be as much of an issue.
Again, the brightness not feeling too bad,
but an edge to that wind -
just 4 degrees, for example, in Norwich.
That's a sign of things to come,
because as we head into Thursday,
we're going to start to tap into a reservoir
of really chilly air across Europe.
Much of Europe is still freezing cold.
That really cold air is going to get dragged up
across the UK during the course of Thursday
on a stiff old wind coming in from the south-east.
Wind chill will be high,
and some parts of central and eastern England,
for example, may struggle to get above freezing
all day long. A bitter day.
It could be one of the coldest days of the winter so far,
in actual fact.
Still, that breeze coming in
from the south-east on Friday.
Probably not as chilly by then,
and there are fronts out to the west as well,
which might just bring a little rain
into westernmost areas,
but most places on Friday will stay dry.
Still distinctly chilly
across those more eastern areas,
but probably not just as bitter
as it will be on Thursday.
On into Saturday.
Now, the wind starting to drift in from the west.
That is an indicator of milder conditions,
notice 10 degrees in London.
Across the board, temperatures will be higher on Saturday,
many of us still dry.
That milder theme will continue.
See the blue is beginning to retreat further away
into the near continent.
We look to the west for our weather
as we go through this weekend and indeed beyond.
The jet stream is going to start to steer weather systems
in from the Atlantic.
Most potent of these will be across the north-west of the UK,
closest to the jet stream.
Very little if any rain, you'll notice,
further south and east across the country,
as we look into the early part of next week.
In fact, as the month changes, as we head into February,
it's a similar pattern.
It will be milder than recently
with that Atlantic influence.
Wettest and windiest across the north-west,
but still mostly dry
across those more southern
and eastern areas.
I will explore that dry theme
in a bit more detail
if you join me again tomorrow.
