Hello. Rain is in the forecast and we haven't heard that very often.

0:00:000:00:04

This week, the weather is going to be dominated more by

0:00:040:00:07

low pressure rather than high pressure.

0:00:070:00:10

The rain was very hit and miss over the weekend.

0:00:100:00:13

That band of cloud brought some rain for a while

0:00:130:00:15

but otherwise it was sunshine and showers.

0:00:150:00:17

But we look out into the Atlantic and already this cloud is arriving

0:00:170:00:20

and that will bring with it this area of low pressure,

0:00:200:00:23

some outbreaks of rain.

0:00:230:00:25

It is coming from a long way south so it is drawing up some warm air

0:00:250:00:27

and the potential for some heavy rain as well.

0:00:270:00:31

So, as we head into Monday, we have got outbreaks of rain spilling

0:00:310:00:33

across most of the UK, perhaps not very much rain in the south-east.

0:00:330:00:37

The wettest weather is always going to be over the western hills.

0:00:370:00:39

But through the afternoon, the rain tends to ease off a bit.

0:00:390:00:42

Where you've got some shelter from the high ground,

0:00:420:00:44

you could get them sunshine.

0:00:440:00:45

For example, around the Moray Firth,

0:00:450:00:47

perhaps in the north-east of England, perhaps into east Wales.

0:00:470:00:49

Still some heavier rain over the hills of Wales and tracking its way

0:00:490:00:53

through Lincolnshire. But not that much rain towards the south-east.

0:00:530:00:56

Even though there is a lot of cloud around and rain never too far away,

0:00:560:00:59

it is quite warm air,

0:00:590:01:01

so temperatures 16, perhaps 17 degrees, quite widely.

0:01:010:01:05

That first area of heavy rain moves away into the North Sea and

0:01:050:01:08

then we could get another dose of heavy rain coming back through

0:01:080:01:10

the Irish Sea into Wales, Scotland and across northern England as well.

0:01:100:01:15

All the while, we've still got this south-westerly wind which will be

0:01:150:01:18

strongest through the Irish Sea and a very mild night,

0:01:180:01:20

14 or 15 degrees perhaps in some areas.

0:01:200:01:22

So that is quite a change in the forecast.

0:01:220:01:25

Areas of low pressure dominating on Tuesday.

0:01:250:01:28

The main feature - that weather front which is just stranded really

0:01:280:01:32

across the UK. Where it stops, it's difficult to know on Tuesday.

0:01:320:01:35

At the moment it looks like more across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire,

0:01:350:01:38

perhaps the Midlands, Wales

0:01:380:01:39

and the south-west seeing some rain at times.

0:01:390:01:42

It doesn't get too far away from the south-east by the end of the day.

0:01:420:01:45

But here, we've got some warm and humid air

0:01:450:01:48

so it could be as high as 23 or 24.

0:01:480:01:50

Even behind that band of rain

0:01:500:01:52

where we're seeing bands of heavy showers

0:01:520:01:53

and blustery winds,

0:01:530:01:55

it's not particularly cold at all.

0:01:550:01:57

Things start to change again on Tuesday.

0:01:570:01:59

That weather front is a little further

0:01:590:02:01

towards the south-east of the UK

0:02:010:02:02

and it threatens to bring some heavier rain

0:02:020:02:04

to south-east England and East Anglia.

0:02:040:02:07

This is probably going to be

0:02:070:02:08

the wettest day of the week

0:02:080:02:09

for this part of the UK.

0:02:090:02:10

Away from here, some sunny spells.

0:02:100:02:12

Blustery showers in the north-west,

0:02:120:02:14

but temperatures will be a bit lower

0:02:140:02:16

by a few degrees on Wednesday

0:02:160:02:18

and that warm and muggy air

0:02:180:02:19

is getting pushed away into central Europe instead.

0:02:190:02:22

It's cooler air that's going to dominate our weather

0:02:220:02:25

from Thursday onwards

0:02:250:02:26

and that means sunshine and showers.

0:02:260:02:29

The rain in the south-east

0:02:290:02:30

out into the near continent,

0:02:300:02:32

not much rain for eastern parts of the UK.

0:02:320:02:34

More showers further west,

0:02:340:02:36

but those temperatures round about the mid-teens

0:02:360:02:38

at best on Thursday

0:02:380:02:40

and then we've got the area of low pressure

0:02:400:02:42

that starts to amble towards the UK

0:02:420:02:45

by the end of the week.

0:02:450:02:46

What that does,

0:02:460:02:48

it just sort of intensifies the showers -

0:02:480:02:50

showers or longer spells of rain,

0:02:500:02:51

some quite gusty winds,

0:02:510:02:52

especially in the south-west,

0:02:520:02:54

and it will feel quite a bit cooler

0:02:540:02:56

with temperatures about 13 degrees or so.

0:02:560:02:58

Now, looking ahead into the weekend,

0:02:580:03:01

we're going to find that low pressure

0:03:010:03:03

still very close to the UK -

0:03:030:03:05

that means more showers around.

0:03:050:03:07

Now it's slowly pushing its way

0:03:070:03:09

towards the near continent

0:03:090:03:10

and there's higher pressure out to the west

0:03:100:03:12

and beyond next weekend,

0:03:120:03:14

we're going to find that high pressure

0:03:140:03:16

slowly pushing into the UK,

0:03:160:03:17

but it is a very slow process

0:03:170:03:19

so western areas becoming drier

0:03:190:03:21

with more sunshine,

0:03:210:03:22

but still across the eastern side of the UK,

0:03:220:03:24

there's a chance of showers

0:03:240:03:25

or some longer spells of rain.

0:03:250:03:26

At least, though, it won't be as windy.

0:03:260:03:28
