Hello. Well, most of us have experienced quite a change
to the weather in the last 24, 48 hours.
It's still pretty cold across many northern areas of the UK.
Here's a picture from weather watcher John
from the Scottish Borders.
Cloudy, 2 degrees. There's even been some sleet.
But further south across the UK,
that's where the milder air has reached.
We've had some sunshine, but also some big clouds,
and these cumulus clouds eventually grew
to produce some thunderstorms, even hailstorms,
across some parts of the country.
So the weather is going to be very mixed in the week ahead,
so you'll need your brolly at times, but steady in the wind.
At least one thing's for sure - it is turning a lot, lot milder.
Even across northern parts of the UK
will experience those milder conditions
at least by the middle of the week.
So you can get a sense that a lot's happening across the Atlantic,
clouds are racing through,
whereas eastern parts of Europe, very sort of still,
high pressure still dominating, that's where the weather's stuck,
that's where it's still relatively cold.
But the weather fronts making their way across the country
during the course of Sunday,
bringing outbreaks of rain so, you know,
we've lost the cold weather, but unfortunately,
that does mean that the weather will turn a little ugly
across some southern areas.
Lots of grey cloud, outbreaks of rain.
Not everybody's taste.
Northern areas - this is Sunday, middle of the afternoon -
you can see some sunshine there for Scotland,
just about, before sunset.
Also the north-east of England enjoying some sun. But look at that.
Many parts, from Northern Ireland into Wales,
the Midlands and the south, getting that rain.
I suspect the heaviest of the rain will fall across Wales
and the south-west, as is often the case in this situation.
But still chilly in Newcastle there and Aberdeen.
Only 4 to 6 degrees,
but that milder weather reaching south-western areas.
Now, let's take a look at Monday's weather forecast.
A big area of low pressure starts to form.
In fact, a couple there across the Atlantic.
That means that the winds will start to increase,
they'll start to push in yet more cloud
and little bits and pieces of rain,
so weak weather front, I think, across many western areas on Monday.
But ahead of that, lots of grey cloud,
so it'll be a grey, drizzly day
with mist and maybe some fog in places as well.
But temperatures up to 12 degrees there in Plymouth.
And then on Tuesday, another weather front comes in,
brings outbreaks of rain to western areas, but look at that.
That milder air has finally reached northern parts of the UK,
and it's behind this weather front here.
All of this here is a lot milder,
stronger winds coming all the way from the more southern climes here,
so I think Wednesday, not just milder,
but probably the best day of the week with some sunshine.
There might be a little bit of early rain across eastern areas
and then later in the day some rain in, I think, the far north-west,
but on balance, probably the best day of the week.
And then Thursday, and eventually into Friday,
a major area of low pressure develops
just to the west of our neighbourhood.
Again, increasing winds and a chance of some rain,
particularly across western and northern areas.
So broadly speaking, late next week, into the weekend,
that big low pressure's just towards the west of us,
sending stronger winds, perhaps gale-force winds,
across some western areas,
but that more settled weather's way towards the east.
And next weekend, no change.
At the moment, the thinking is
we'll keep that unsettled weather with air coming off the ocean,
so it'll feel relatively mild.
So, let's summarise all of that.
You will need your umbrella at times,
but steady in those stronger winds,
and there'll be a little bit of cold weather from time to time,
maybe, between those bands of rain, particularly at night. Bye-bye.
