Well, it's time to find out what the weather is up to over
the next few days and I can tell you straight away that
it's actually not looking bad at all.
Most days this coming week will be dry.
Not completely - there will be a little bit
of rain around and some unsettled weather across Scotland -
but overall, looking at the UK,
it is looking mostly cheerful, I think.
Now, as far as the overnight period is concerned, so into Monday,
we've got clear skies after a pretty cloudy Saturday with some rain.
But clear skies overnight. That means a chilly night,
colder than what we've had for quite some time.
In fact, in rural areas, even just outside towns and cities,
temperatures will be very close to freezing.
So chilly Monday on the way.
Let's have a look at the big picture then on Monday, the weather map.
So, high pressure close to the UK.
It's affecting England, Wales and Northern Ireland,
Scotland to an extent too.
And the jet stream is to the north-west of us,
pushing the cloud and the rain, the weather fronts, basically,
away from us, although they will be just about clipping
the north-west of Scotland.
But for most of us to the south, the weather is looking dry.
So, Monday dawns on that chilly note, sunny note for most of us
in the afternoon, and maybe the tail ends
of these weather fronts just about affecting
the far north-west of Scotland.
And mild - 16 in London,
Belfast also getting up to around the mid-teens as well.
So, the jet stream, if you imagine it here,
pushing those weather fronts to the north-west of us.
Turning quite windy, actually, across Scotland.
Tuesday in particular very windy day
across the northern half of Scotland.
You know isobars - lots of them mean very strong winds
and we could see gales up to 60 or 70mph,
which of course we're quite used to across this part of the world,
at least in the Northern Isles and northern Scotland.
But blustery with showers here.
To the south of that it'll be dry, certainly most of England and Wales,
just a few pockets of light rain, but that's pretty much it.
I'm going to change the scene a little bit now and show you
what's happening across the north Atlantic and also North America.
See these ripples between the warm and the cold?
These are actually storms that are developing off
the north-east coast of the United States.
We had a look at that yesterday, we were forecasting a pretty nasty
snowstorm for the north-east of the US, including New York.
That remains the case.
If you're heading in this direction, not looking good.
There could be some disruption with travel.
There's another one here too, but remember,
that jet stream is pushing these lows towards the north-west.
And what these lows are doing,
with the wind spinning around like so, they're scooping up
the milder air in the southern climes
and pushing it in our direction.
So that's why with the low, a nasty low close by,
but not over us - we're getting the warm air coming in.
Well, call it mild - mid-teens, probably.
Now, a weather front, a sneaky one,
is going to push through during the course of Thursday, I think.
But it should be relatively weak.
A weak front means cloud and just a few spots of rain,
but again the winds will be pretty strong
across the northern part of Scotland.
So you get that message, I think, most of the UK,
the southern two thirds staying fairly settled this week,
but then unsettled for Scotland most of this week.
End of the week, different story.
The jet stream makes a beeline for the UK.
That means it's going to be taking the weather front straight over us.
So I think, by the time we get to Friday and next weekend,
that high pressure with the good weather slips to the south,
the low pressure is just that little bit closer and we start
to see that cooler air coming in with spells of wind and rain.
Let's summarise all of that.
Unsettled in the north this week with those weather fronts
clipping north-western Scotland.
To the south of that, dryer,
and overall I think for most of us it should be pretty mild.
