There has been little sign of any prolonged summer weather in the UK.

:00:08.:00:16.

We will start with frost in rural Scotland. We have heard about the

:00:17.:00:23.

dangerous heatwave in contrast persisting for over a week in

:00:24.:00:27.

southern Europe. It is going east. Parts of the Balkans will have day

:00:28.:00:35.

after day of below 40 Celsius. Cordova was in the mid- 40s.

:00:36.:00:42.

Stagnant air in the British Isles. North of the jetstream, cold air.

:00:43.:00:46.

Eventually next week, the cooler air will go south. Pushing out hit into

:00:47.:00:51.

the south and east of Europe. Heating up in these regions. Of

:00:52.:00:56.

course, with that cold air across the UK, lots of showers for the

:00:57.:01:03.

first part of the weekend. Under the ridge of high pressure for the start

:01:04.:01:08.

of the morning as I mentioned, ground frost. Fog around as well. It

:01:09.:01:14.

does not last. We have low pressure bringing some rain. That rain comes

:01:15.:01:21.

in across on a brisk wind. A chilly start elsewhere. Then dry weather

:01:22.:01:26.

and bright weather in southern areas and even the north-east of Scotland.

:01:27.:01:32.

Northern Ireland brightens up. A decent day. Other northern areas on

:01:33.:01:37.

Monday as well. If you were under the weather front which is

:01:38.:01:41.

slow-moving, quite a dreary day. Parts of the south-east may escape

the worst. However, after that, it looks like we will get low pressure

:01:46.:01:49.

starting to move up in France. Joining forces with pressure here in

:01:50.:01:56.

the North Sea. Heavy weather. Not looking like pleasant day. The wind

:01:57.:02:01.

is strengthening. Heavy showers and thunderstorms. Muggy air for a time.

:02:02.:02:09.

15- 20 degrees. The latter part of Tuesday. Starting to lose that muggy

:02:10.:02:14.

air except in eastern areas. We pick up this strong northerly wind.

:02:15.:02:18.

Tightly packed isobars coming down from the north. It does not look

:02:19.:02:23.

very summer like at all. Strong northerly winds driving plenty more

:02:24.:02:26.

showers along this area. Temperatures will struggle to reach

:02:27.:02:32.

the mid-teens for many. Quite chilly. It will be a long time

:02:33.:02:35.

before that clears out of the way across southern and eastern areas.

:02:36.:02:40.

It may take until Thursday. Thursday for most looks like the driest and

:02:41.:02:45.

best day of the week, if you like. 18 north-westerly across eastern

:02:46.:02:52.

areas. -- A keen. 15- 17. That is after a chilly start to be dry for

:02:53.:02:57.

the most part. Showers on Thursday and Friday. We have a high close to

:02:58.:03:06.

us in the south. A promise of something more dry. Again, it looks

:03:07.:03:10.

as if it will only be for southern areas later in the week and into the

:03:11.:03:14.

weekend. At this stage, low pressure continuing to dry in off the

:03:15.:03:17.

Atlantic for the northern half of the UK. It will be unsettled across

:03:18.:03:24.

the north of the UK with some rain and at times fairly strong winds.

:03:25.:03:29.

Closer to the high, it looks like it will be
