The weekend's upon us - Wimbledon finals too.

0:00:020:00:05

The weather is looking a little mixed.

0:00:050:00:08

There's some rain in the forecast. Let's snap to it.

0:00:080:00:11

This is the satellite picture

0:00:110:00:12

showing quite an extensive area of cloud

0:00:120:00:15

out there in the north Atlantic

0:00:150:00:17

and it's making a beeline for us,

0:00:170:00:18

so many parts of the country are in for an overcast Saturday

0:00:180:00:22

with some outbreaks of rain. So Friday night into Saturday,

0:00:220:00:26

all of that cloud rolls off the Atlantic.

0:00:260:00:28

We've already had heavy rain in Northern Ireland

0:00:280:00:31

and parts of Scotland and there's more to come during Saturday.

0:00:310:00:34

Even far away from these weather fronts further south

0:00:340:00:37

there'll be extensive cloud, hill fog, mist, and drizzle in places.

0:00:370:00:40

Basically the further west and north you are,

0:00:400:00:43

the more likely you are to catch a bit of rain.

0:00:430:00:45

There will be some brightness around the Midlands, maybe the south-east,

0:00:450:00:48

especially on Saturday afternoon, but a warm and muggy day.

0:00:480:00:52

Temperatures possibly up to around 23 or 24 degrees

0:00:520:00:56

despite all of that cloud.

0:00:560:00:57

And not much change on Saturday evening -

0:00:570:01:00

still a lot of cloud, still feeling humid,

0:01:000:01:03

and it should be quite a warm evening and night.

0:01:030:01:06

On Sunday, we still have a weather front.

0:01:060:01:08

This time it's across southern areas of the UK,

0:01:080:01:11

so that means this is where we'll probably see most of the cloud,

0:01:110:01:13

but around this high pressure here,

0:01:130:01:16

the winds will freshen up, come off the Atlantic,

0:01:160:01:18

and bring brighter weather to Scotland, Northern Ireland,

0:01:180:01:21

and also Northern England, whereas the southern counties here,

0:01:210:01:24

probably from around about the Midland southwards,

0:01:240:01:27

still pretty overcast and warm.

0:01:270:01:29

What does that mean for the Wimbledon finals?

0:01:290:01:31

It means a lot of cloud around.

0:01:310:01:33

It's not going to be desperately hot as far as the temperature goes,

0:01:330:01:36

on the thermometer, but it will feel warm and humid.

0:01:360:01:40

It's that humidity that won't be particularly pleasant.

0:01:400:01:43

As we head into Monday we say goodbye to that muggy weather,

0:01:430:01:46

I think things will freshen up, dry out as well,

0:01:460:01:48

so quite a nice day for most of us on Monday,

0:01:480:01:52

and then things get interesting Tuesday into Wednesday.

0:01:520:01:54

If you were watching yesterday we were talking about the possibility

0:01:540:01:57

of hot air being drawn in from Spain and France by

0:01:570:02:00

this area of low pressure, and some thunderstorms with that as well,

0:02:000:02:04

so hot and humid weather returning again,

0:02:040:02:06

so almost resurging from the south.

0:02:060:02:09

This is Tuesday's weather forecast and at this stage,

0:02:090:02:11

it looks like many areas will have a fine day,

0:02:110:02:14

potentially hot in the south,

0:02:140:02:16

and you can see the extent of these storms.

0:02:160:02:18

And then as we go through the course of Tuesday into Wednesday,

0:02:180:02:21

and it's still quite far off and difficult to predict

0:02:210:02:24

storms like this this far in advance,

0:02:240:02:27

I mean, it could be plus or minus a day - the point is,

0:02:270:02:29

Tuesday into Wednesday, that warmth gets drawn up

0:02:290:02:32

from the south and there could be storms almost anywhere.

0:02:320:02:35

Also very difficult to predict how warm it's going to get.

0:02:350:02:38

if we have extensive cloud through the middle part of the week

0:02:380:02:41

and quite a few storms,

0:02:410:02:43

temperatures might only be 23, 24, 25 degrees.

0:02:430:02:46

If we have fewer storms and more sunshine,

0:02:460:02:49

there's a potential for temperatures

0:02:490:02:51

to shoot up even in excess of 30 degrees Celsius.

0:02:510:02:54

Whichever way you look at it,

0:02:540:02:56

whether the temperature's low or high,

0:02:560:02:57

it is still going to be humid and that threat of storms exists.

0:02:570:03:01

Then after those storms, so Thursday and Friday next week,

0:03:010:03:05

that low pressure pulls away, taking its bad weather with it,

0:03:050:03:09

away from the UK, and then the following weekend,

0:03:090:03:12

high pressure is set to build,

0:03:120:03:14

so things are going to dry out and freshen up.

0:03:140:03:17

So here's the summary for next week.

0:03:170:03:19

It is going to turn much warmer, potentially hot in the south,

0:03:190:03:23

with a chance of some storms, and then later next week,

0:03:230:03:26

it will settle down.

0:03:260:03:28

That's it from me - thanks for watching.

0:03:280:03:30

You've been weird ever since we came down here. There's something.
