Hello. Well, most of us have experienced quite a change

0:00:020:00:04

to the weather in the last 24, 48 hours.

0:00:040:00:07

It's still pretty cold across many northern areas of the UK.

0:00:070:00:11

Here's a picture from weather watcher John

0:00:110:00:13

from the Scottish Borders.

0:00:130:00:14

Cloudy, 2 degrees. There's even been some sleet.

0:00:140:00:17

But further south across the UK,

0:00:170:00:18

that's where the milder air has reached.

0:00:180:00:20

We've had some sunshine, but also some big clouds,

0:00:200:00:23

and these cumulus clouds eventually grew

0:00:230:00:25

to produce some thunderstorms, even hailstorms,

0:00:250:00:28

across some parts of the country.

0:00:280:00:29

So the weather is going to be very mixed in the week ahead,

0:00:290:00:31

so you'll need your brolly at times, but steady in the wind.

0:00:310:00:35

At least one thing's for sure - it is turning a lot, lot milder.

0:00:350:00:38

Even across northern parts of the UK

0:00:380:00:39

will experience those milder conditions

0:00:390:00:42

at least by the middle of the week.

0:00:420:00:43

So you can get a sense that a lot's happening across the Atlantic,

0:00:430:00:46

clouds are racing through,

0:00:460:00:48

whereas eastern parts of Europe, very sort of still,

0:00:480:00:51

high pressure still dominating, that's where the weather's stuck,

0:00:510:00:54

that's where it's still relatively cold.

0:00:540:00:56

But the weather fronts making their way across the country

0:00:560:00:59

during the course of Sunday,

0:00:590:01:00

bringing outbreaks of rain so, you know,

0:01:000:01:02

we've lost the cold weather, but unfortunately,

0:01:020:01:05

that does mean that the weather will turn a little ugly

0:01:050:01:07

across some southern areas.

0:01:070:01:09

Lots of grey cloud, outbreaks of rain.

0:01:090:01:11

Not everybody's taste.

0:01:110:01:13

Northern areas - this is Sunday, middle of the afternoon -

0:01:130:01:16

you can see some sunshine there for Scotland,

0:01:160:01:18

just about, before sunset.

0:01:180:01:19

Also the north-east of England enjoying some sun. But look at that.

0:01:190:01:22

Many parts, from Northern Ireland into Wales,

0:01:220:01:25

the Midlands and the south, getting that rain.

0:01:250:01:27

I suspect the heaviest of the rain will fall across Wales

0:01:270:01:30

and the south-west, as is often the case in this situation.

0:01:300:01:34

But still chilly in Newcastle there and Aberdeen.

0:01:340:01:36

Only 4 to 6 degrees,

0:01:360:01:37

but that milder weather reaching south-western areas.

0:01:370:01:41

Now, let's take a look at Monday's weather forecast.

0:01:410:01:44

A big area of low pressure starts to form.

0:01:440:01:46

In fact, a couple there across the Atlantic.

0:01:460:01:48

That means that the winds will start to increase,

0:01:480:01:51

they'll start to push in yet more cloud

0:01:510:01:53

and little bits and pieces of rain,

0:01:530:01:54

so weak weather front, I think, across many western areas on Monday.

0:01:540:01:58

But ahead of that, lots of grey cloud,

0:01:580:02:01

so it'll be a grey, drizzly day

0:02:010:02:03

with mist and maybe some fog in places as well.

0:02:030:02:06

But temperatures up to 12 degrees there in Plymouth.

0:02:060:02:09

And then on Tuesday, another weather front comes in,

0:02:090:02:12

brings outbreaks of rain to western areas, but look at that.

0:02:120:02:15

That milder air has finally reached northern parts of the UK,

0:02:150:02:18

and it's behind this weather front here.

0:02:180:02:21

All of this here is a lot milder,

0:02:210:02:23

stronger winds coming all the way from the more southern climes here,

0:02:230:02:27

so I think Wednesday, not just milder,

0:02:270:02:30

but probably the best day of the week with some sunshine.

0:02:300:02:32

There might be a little bit of early rain across eastern areas

0:02:320:02:35

and then later in the day some rain in, I think, the far north-west,

0:02:350:02:39

but on balance, probably the best day of the week.

0:02:390:02:42

And then Thursday, and eventually into Friday,

0:02:420:02:44

a major area of low pressure develops

0:02:440:02:46

just to the west of our neighbourhood.

0:02:460:02:48

Again, increasing winds and a chance of some rain,

0:02:480:02:51

particularly across western and northern areas.

0:02:510:02:55

So broadly speaking, late next week, into the weekend,

0:02:550:02:58

that big low pressure's just towards the west of us,

0:02:580:03:02

sending stronger winds, perhaps gale-force winds,

0:03:020:03:04

across some western areas,

0:03:040:03:06

but that more settled weather's way towards the east.

0:03:060:03:09

And next weekend, no change.

0:03:090:03:11

At the moment, the thinking is

0:03:110:03:12

we'll keep that unsettled weather with air coming off the ocean,

0:03:120:03:16

so it'll feel relatively mild.

0:03:160:03:17

So, let's summarise all of that.

0:03:170:03:19

You will need your umbrella at times,

0:03:190:03:21

but steady in those stronger winds,

0:03:210:03:23

and there'll be a little bit of cold weather from time to time,

0:03:230:03:25

maybe, between those bands of rain, particularly at night. Bye-bye.

0:03:250:03:28
