Hello. We started the week on a dry note with a good deal of sunshine
but we ended the week with a good deal of cloud and some
outbreaks of rain. But it is very welcome rain,
particularly for the gardeners and the growers.
Here's the satellite and radar sequence from Friday.
A lot of cloud swirling around an area of low pressure
and a little bit of sunshine to be had.
It's drifting its way northwards and so there's
going to be some rain to be had across Scotland,
northwest of England, parts of Ireland
into Saturday afternoon,
but reasonable weather the further south and east you go.
The eastern side of Scotland will be quite grey
but largely dry. Western and southern parts will see
some cloud and outbreaks of rain.
There will be a bit of rain at times
in Northern Ireland. But across the bulk
of England and Wales, a scattering of showers
but a lot of dry and quite bright weather.
Showers are few and far between across
the southeast and here it'll be bright and breezy,
some sunshine, 19 or 20 degrees certainly possible.
The winds will be picking up towards the south
and west into the afternoon as this weather front arrives.
That'll be bringing some rain which will spread
its way from west to east across all parts
Saturday night into Sunday.
Shouldn't last too long in any given location
but it is going to bring some welcome rain with it.
And there's some fresher air coming in behind that
and we start Sunday with temperatures around
10 or 11 degrees.
Now, you might start off a bit wet for some early risers
along the east coast of Scotland and eastern England but it
shouldn't take too long for that rain to clear out
into the North Sea, and then we've got this
temporary ridge of higher pressure and with that
we're starting on a decent note for many places
with sunshine. With the breeze coming in from
the southwest we will see the cloud building
and there'll be a scattering of showers developing
into the afternoon and some showers in the northwest.
I think there'll be some lengthy dry spells in-between any
showers away from the northwest.
Temperatures round about 15 or 16 degrees,
probably peak at about 19 or 20
in the southeast once again.
Then we look out towards the west for this area
of low pressure to head our way for the start of the week.
Those isobars are tightening up,
so it's going to be quite windy on Monday
and there's going to be a fair bit of rain.
But it will be welcome rain for the gardeners and growers.
Any rain in the southeast should soon clear away and then
it'll stay pretty cloudy but quite warm.
Further north and west you've got the wind and rain
so that'll temper those temperatures but that rain
should clear away from Northern Ireland.
As we get into Tuesday, a trailing weather front to be
draped somewhere across the south of the UK.
The position is a bit uncertain at this stage.
At the moment it looks like it will be through the Midlands,
parts of Wales and the southwest and maybe for a time
in the southeast. But if it clears away and we get that
southerly breeze it could get quite warm in that
Further north and west it's bright and breezy with maybe
a few showers coming in on the breeze.
As we head towards Wednesday,
we've got low pressure to the north
of the UK and high pressure to the west.
This trailing weather front is going to bring some cloud
and rain to the southern half of the UK.
Probably that rain easing away as we get on into
the afternoon but still some showers
towards the far north and west.
Looking ahead towards the latter part of next week,
looks like that low to the north of us will drift away towards
Scandinavia, allowing that high to the west of us to come in,
getting closer and closer to the UK.
But the resulting winds are northerly and that's going to
bring some much cooler air with it and the closer you are to the
low pressure system up and down that eastern coast,
you are more likely to see some rain.
And that setup looks like it'll last into the following weekend,
so we are developing this east-west split.
It'll be cooler and there will be some rain around,
most of that will be in the eastern side but closer to the high and west
it should be that bit drier.
