Hello.

0:00:030:00:04

This Weather For The Week ahead forecast just about takes us

0:00:040:00:06

to the end of May but, would you believe it,

0:00:060:00:09

it looks as if winter is returning early next week.

0:00:090:00:11

In the sunshine, it feels glorious, and we had 19 degrees

0:00:110:00:14

in eastern Scotland, some beautiful sunshine

0:00:140:00:15

in north-east England on Thursday.

0:00:150:00:17

It was a cloudy affair predominantly.

0:00:170:00:19

This was more akin to the rest of the UK, Stone in Staffordshire.

0:00:190:00:22

But it certainly wasn't a disappointment.

0:00:220:00:23

There will be plenty more dry weather on Friday as well.

0:00:230:00:27

Perhaps some early fog south of the M4.

0:00:270:00:29

You can see our weather front is sinking its way south,

0:00:290:00:31

so it will be a different day for the east of Scotland

0:00:310:00:34

in particular.

0:00:340:00:35

Cloudy here and much cooler as well, 10 and 11.

0:00:350:00:38

There is still the potential in the south, if we see

0:00:380:00:41

the breaks in the cloud, for 16 or 17 degrees,

0:00:410:00:43

which is above average for this time of year.

0:00:430:00:45

And it will remain above average where we see the sunshine this

0:00:450:00:48

weekend, despite that cold air making its way southwards.

0:00:480:00:51

That will give us some chilly nights with the risk

0:00:510:00:53

of a touch of grass frost, but the high pressure will mean

0:00:530:00:56

that the weather front will be quite weak and there won't be a great deal

0:00:560:01:00

of rain on it.

0:01:000:01:04

For many of us, it's just predominantly cloudy on Saturday,

0:01:040:01:06

to start, then some breaks come in the cloud, but we are

0:01:060:01:09

behind that cold front.

0:01:090:01:10

There will be some sunshine coming out.

0:01:100:01:12

Quite a different day potentially for the Midlands,

0:01:120:01:13

having had a day or two of cloud, but where we keep the cloud

0:01:130:01:17

it still feels chilly, particularly in that wind.

0:01:170:01:19

To the south of that, we've got that milder air.

0:01:190:01:21

We keep a very similar sort of weather picture on Sunday,

0:01:210:01:24

although there's a difference in the north, but we are watching

0:01:240:01:27

this area of low pressure.

0:01:270:01:28

We've been talking about it all week.

0:01:280:01:29

It could be bringing us severe gales and some very wet weather,

0:01:290:01:32

so it's one to watch.

0:01:320:01:34

It just looks at the moment as if it will be for the northern half

0:01:340:01:37

of the UK, particularly northern Scotland.

0:01:370:01:39

Severe gales here.

0:01:390:01:40

For many of us, Sunday isn't a bad day.

0:01:400:01:42

It's very usable weather, that rain later in the day,

0:01:420:01:44

and we could see 16, despite it being colder air,

0:01:440:01:46

just because of the strength of the sun at this time of year.

0:01:460:01:50

So it does look quite aggressive, that low pressure, but it's starting

0:01:500:01:53

to move out of the way, and it's allowing a northerly

0:01:530:01:55

wind to come southwards, and a much colder air stream right

0:01:550:01:58

down from the Arctic, so true cold air, and it really

0:01:580:02:00

will be a shock to the system for some of us and, indeed,

0:02:000:02:04

we will see some wintry showers, and not just at higher levels.

0:02:040:02:06

It all takes place, the change, behind this cold weather front.

0:02:060:02:09

Not a great deal of rain, we don't think, on the weather system,

0:02:090:02:12

although it will provide for a cloudy day in southern

0:02:120:02:15

areas but, behind it, we open those northerly winds up,

0:02:150:02:17

and there will be lots of showers around, with hail and thunder

0:02:170:02:20

and sleet and snow.

0:02:200:02:21

It's a strong wind at times, squally as well, so it

0:02:210:02:23

will accentuate the chill.

0:02:230:02:24

We could still see 15, just about, that milder air just hanging

0:02:240:02:27

on in the south on Monday.

0:02:270:02:29

But, by the end of Monday, not just a shock to our system

0:02:290:02:32

but also for the flora and fauna so, gardeners and growers, beware.

0:02:320:02:35

But some big hail certainly possible from those big

0:02:350:02:38

showers and thunderstorms.

0:02:380:02:41

As I say, some very unsettled, disturbed air heading our way.

0:02:410:02:44

It stays that way through midweek.

0:02:440:02:48

We've got this feed of cold northerly air.

0:02:480:02:50

The high pressure is trying to cut that off, so gradually

0:02:500:02:53

towards the end of the week we'll start to see the grass frost

0:02:530:02:56

becoming less severe and the cold air being cut off,

0:02:560:03:00

so potentially not such a thick frost later in the week,

0:03:000:03:05

but certainly starting that way in the middle part of the week,

0:03:050:03:08

and eventually, with that cold air being cut off,

0:03:080:03:10

the showers and big thunderstorms should become less prevalent

0:03:100:03:13

as well, and the snow showers should become mostly confined to the hills.

0:03:130:03:17

But, as I say, it does look as if winter is making its return

0:03:170:03:20

from Monday onwards, and a really chilly

0:03:200:03:22

feel in that wind.

0:03:220:03:24

A real risk of thunder, hail, sleet and snow and, of course,

0:03:240:03:27

the night-time frosts.

0:03:270:03:28

Bye-bye.

0:03:280:03:29

Bye-bye.
