Hello there. Well, much of March has been fairly mild,
particularly across the southern half of the UK,
with temperatures a little above the seasonal average.
This weekend promises to be the last of the mild weather
for the foreseeable future, as things are set to turn colder
into next week. Now, for the weekend,
the Jet Stream has been running literally right across
the Atlantic in a west to east orientation,
bringing in cloud and weather fronts into our shores.
And it was pretty wet for many areas on Saturday.
For Sunday, we will see another band of rain affecting
the north-west corner of the UK, sinking slowly southwards and
eastwards into Northern England, Northern and Western Wales, with
conditions turning a bit brighter but showery and cooler behind it.
Ahead of it, though, we still have that mild air,
a lot of cloud, but given any brightness, it will feel very
mild with temperatures again reaching 15, maybe 16 Celsius.
Into Sunday night, that weather front sinks southwards,
taking some rain in towards southern and south-eastern areas
before more rain peps up across the south and the west
as we start Monday morning.
It will still be fairly mild to start the day for Monday
morning in the south, but cooler in the north.
That's the trend, really, for the next few days.
The blue colours will be invading, pushing out the orange colours.
It will feel noticeably cooler and will be showery as well,
and temperatures will be pretty low at night where we get
clear skies, with even a touch of frost returning.
Now, for Monday, this area of low pressure will bring some
fairly strong winds to the UK, certainly across Scotland.
Quite an active weather front,
it will bring some heavy rain to England and Wales for a time
through Monday, eventually clearing off in towards the North Sea.
Some brightness developing across Scotland and Northern Ireland
into the afternoon, but it will feel noticeably cooler here,
with some of the showers falling wintry over the higher ground.
We could make 11 to 14 Celsius across the south-east,
but the cooler air will move into all areas as we head through
the course of Monday into Tuesday.
So, we open the floodgates to the north-west,
this will bring a showery regime, with clear skies at night,
like I mentioned, we could see a return to frost in central
and northern areas in particular.
For Tuesday, a chilly start, still fairly breezy,
but there will be a lot of dry weather,
bright with some sunshine through central and eastern parts,
but temperatures really will feel lower than they have done
of late, five to maybe ten or 11 Celsius in the south-east.
Now, low pressure is never too far away as we head in
towards Wednesday, pushing towards the south,
so it looks like southern parts of Britain will see
most of the cloud with outbreaks of rain,
as an area of high pressure begins to topple in
towards the north-west.
So here, remaining cool in north-north-east winds.
To the south, something a bit cloudier,
a little bit wetter, and pulling in just
a little bit of milder air again into the south-east.
On Thursday, low pressure still with us across the south,
this area of high pressure continues to topple in across the north.
So, much of the northern half of the UK on Thursday will be fine.
Chilly once again, with a little bit of frost to start in places,
but central and southern areas tending to see more cloud
with outbreaks of rain, thanks to that area of low pressure nearby.
So, into the latter part of next week,
that area of high pressure which I showed you
toppling over actually dominates the UK potentially
for much of the end of the week.
So, what does that mean?
It's going to bring lot of fine, settled weather, we will lose
the rain across the south, so it should be drier for most.
The winds will remain light, thanks to that high pressure.
It will feel very pleasant by day in the strong late March sunshine,
but by night, given some clear skies,
we will see a return to some frost, so, gardeners beware!
