Well, there's quite a lot to talk about

0:00:030:00:05

in the weather for the week ahead, so you'll just have to stay focused.

0:00:050:00:08

We're going to start further afield, in Spain,

0:00:080:00:11

and, on Thursday in Spain,

0:00:110:00:13

the temperature in Cordoba, in the south,

0:00:130:00:16

close to Seville,

0:00:160:00:17

got up to 47 degrees Celsius -

0:00:170:00:20

one of the highest temperatures

0:00:200:00:22

ever recorded in Spain.

0:00:220:00:23

The reason why I'm mentioning this to you

0:00:230:00:25

is because sometime early to middle of next week,

0:00:250:00:28

some of that hot air will be heading our way.

0:00:280:00:30

Now, we're not forecasting 47 degrees,

0:00:300:00:32

but it will be warming up.

0:00:320:00:34

Will have a look at the details on that

0:00:340:00:36

in just a moment.

0:00:360:00:37

In the short term,

0:00:370:00:39

on Friday we're between two weather systems.

0:00:390:00:42

So, one here early in the morning,

0:00:420:00:44

and another one

0:00:440:00:45

approaching north-western parts of the country.

0:00:450:00:47

So, this is at lunchtime and in the afternoon.

0:00:470:00:49

This means that for many parts of England and Wales,

0:00:490:00:52

it's going to be a fine day on Friday,

0:00:520:00:54

whereas, in the north-west,

0:00:540:00:56

with this next approaching weather system,

0:00:560:00:58

the weather will turn,

0:00:580:00:59

and we are expecting some cloud and some rain.

0:00:590:01:01

So, that's Friday afternoon.

0:01:010:01:03

Here's Friday evening.

0:01:030:01:04

That weather system continues to push

0:01:040:01:06

through Northern Ireland and Scotland,

0:01:060:01:08

possibly the Lake District, as well.

0:01:080:01:09

To the south of that, Friday night, it stays dry -

0:01:090:01:12

and then, through Saturday,

0:01:120:01:14

we've got this trail of a weather front

0:01:140:01:16

stretching out there in the Atlantic,

0:01:160:01:18

moving across northern areas of the UK.

0:01:180:01:20

The south is just about under the influence

0:01:200:01:23

of high pressure.

0:01:230:01:24

So, this means that, with weather systems

0:01:240:01:26

to the north and high pressure to the south,

0:01:260:01:28

the winds are south-westerly,

0:01:280:01:30

but they're also dragging in a lot of cloud,

0:01:300:01:32

extensive cloud, and some outbreaks of rain.

0:01:320:01:34

So, a humid feel, a cloudy day,

0:01:340:01:36

with some spots of rain on Saturday.

0:01:360:01:39

Come Sunday, we'll still see a fair bit of cloud,

0:01:390:01:42

but we'll start to see fresher air coming in

0:01:420:01:44

to northern parts of the UK -

0:01:440:01:46

but very warm, there, you can see,

0:01:460:01:47

across the south-east.

0:01:470:01:48

So, what does that mean for Wimbledon, Saturday and Sunday?

0:01:480:01:51

So, for the first final, slightly lower temperatures,

0:01:510:01:54

but humid and cloudy,

0:01:540:01:55

and then slightly higher temperatures on Sunday,

0:01:550:01:58

possibly getting up to around 25 or 26 degrees Celsius.

0:01:580:02:01

Not ideal playing conditions,

0:02:010:02:03

because it will be very humid.

0:02:030:02:04

Now, let's change gear. Here's Monday.

0:02:040:02:07

We've got high pressure across the UK,

0:02:070:02:09

so, that generally means lots of settled weather,

0:02:090:02:12

lots of sunshine.

0:02:120:02:13

Still quite warm and humid, I think,

0:02:130:02:15

across the far south.

0:02:150:02:16

Maybe temperatures around the mid-20s -

0:02:160:02:18

and then things get a little interesting.

0:02:180:02:20

Here's Tuesday's weather forecast.

0:02:200:02:22

A lot of talk about here.

0:02:220:02:24

So, we've got hot air coming out of Spain -

0:02:240:02:26

remember that heat I mentioned -

0:02:260:02:28

Moving into France,

0:02:280:02:29

and it's sucked in by this area of low pressure,

0:02:290:02:31

and some thunderstorms just looming

0:02:310:02:33

to the south of the UK on Tuesday.

0:02:330:02:36

Come Wednesday, that low pressure

0:02:360:02:38

will probably nudge a little bit

0:02:380:02:39

further northwards,

0:02:390:02:41

and, between the high and the low,

0:02:410:02:43

with the winds blowing like so,

0:02:430:02:44

it opens up this channel

0:02:440:02:45

for some of that heat to ride around the low,

0:02:450:02:48

and also bring some thunderstorms.

0:02:480:02:50

So, potentially turning hot and humid

0:02:500:02:53

midweek next week.

0:02:530:02:54

So, that means temperatures

0:02:540:02:56

might hit 30 degrees -

0:02:560:02:57

again, we could have some thunderstorms -

0:02:570:02:59

you may miss the storms altogether.

0:02:590:03:01

That's mostly across southern and eastern

0:03:010:03:03

areas of the UK.

0:03:030:03:04

The further north and north-west you are,

0:03:040:03:06

so, Scotland and Northern Ireland,

0:03:060:03:08

it'll be fresher during the day

0:03:080:03:10

and the nights may actually be quite chilly,

0:03:100:03:12

could even be lower than 10 degrees,

0:03:120:03:13

so, quite big contrasts

0:03:130:03:15

sometime midweek next week.

0:03:150:03:17

So, here's the summary -

0:03:170:03:18

an unsettled weekend with some rain,

0:03:180:03:20

with the driest of the weather

0:03:200:03:22

in the far south,

0:03:220:03:23

and dry, we think, for Wimbledon, as well,

0:03:230:03:25

and then, possibly, thunderstorms,

0:03:250:03:27

with that heat returning next week.

0:03:270:03:29

Hope you got all that.
