Hello, there. For the time being, at least, we've lost that July heat.
In fact, we've probably already peaked this week -
yesterday we saw a high of 27 degrees,
but by Tuesday temperatures will be significantly lower.
20, 21 degrees, if we are lucky -
and there will be, at times,
some heavy and some persistent rain to come.
It will start off light and showery
across Wales and south-west England,
but then this area of low pressure
will move in and just enhance that rainfall
as we go through the day.
So, perhaps the best of the weather
on Tuesday is likely to be
across Scotland and Northern Ireland,
with just a scattering of showers.
Some patchy rain to begin with
in the south-east,
maybe a brief lull through lunchtime,
before some more heavier persistent rain
pushes into the south-west,
and we'll see the winds strengthening.
Just how far north that rain goes
is still open to question -
but look at these temperatures.
Significantly down on what we've been used to.
14 to 20 degrees at the very best.
Now, as we move out of Tuesday,
that rain still yet to clear away
from the south-east corner -
so, welcome news for gardeners and growers.
Some much-needed rain
across much of central and southern parts
of England and Wales -
but behind that low,
well, we'll start to see the wind swinging round
to a northerly or a north-easterly direction,
making it feel just that little bit fresher
on those exposed east coasts -
but on Wednesday a quieter day,
drier, with sunny spells coming through,
temperatures at around 16 to 22 degrees,
feeling a little better the further west
in a little more shelter.
As we move out of Wednesday,
we see this ridge of high pressure building,
so, things quieten down
for a day, at least, again.
We'll see this weak weather front threatening,
so, the best of the weather on Thursday
is likely to be across sheltered eastern areas.
Dry, with some sunshine, a scattering of showers
developing out to the west
as we go through the day.
17 to 23 degrees the high
by the middle of the afternoon.
Now, that weather front has yet to clear away.
It will do so during Thursday
into the early hours of Friday morning,
and will bring some showers with it
before, again, another ridge builds,
before the next system
waits in the wings across the north-west.
It's going to stay pretty changeable this week.
So, we could have some early showers
across the south-east corner
to clear away first thing on Friday.
Drier, brighter weather from the west,
before the next area of frame starts to show its hand
into the north-west by the end of Friday.
That will bring some wetter weather,
weakening all the time
as it pushes steadily east -
but for the start of the weekend,
stays pretty changeable.
It stays pretty windy at times,
and there will be some showery outbreaks of rain,
so, it's not all straightforward
for the start of the weekend.
Top temperatures around 18 to 23 degrees.
It probably won't come as a surprise to hear
that the jet stream
is sitting right across us at the moment,
allowing for this mobile westerly flow,
for the Atlantic frontal systems
to move in from day to day -
but, as we move out of the weekend
into the longer-term period,
it looks as though we'll see
more of an amplified jet stream,
and that's going to allow this high pressure to build
from the south-west,
and hopefully push a little more warmth
back in across us.
All the time, though,
across the far north and east of Scotland
and north-east England,
you're staying on that colder side of the jet -
but it looks as though
further ahead will be a little less changeable,
though the best of the drier weather
will be in the south -
and hopefully, fingers crossed,
something a little warmer
returns for many of us.
More from me same time tomorrow.
