It is that time again where we give you some detail about what's

0:00:020:00:05

coming up on the weather front in the next few days and look a little

0:00:050:00:08

further ahead.

0:00:080:00:09

Let me take you back a couple of days,

0:00:090:00:12

nothing wrong with that summery scene from Bridlington.

0:00:120:00:15

But if I take you back to the start of Tuesday, what a transformation.

0:00:150:00:20

I could sing at this point what a difference a day makes

0:00:200:00:23

but I like you too much.

0:00:230:00:25

Bridlington wasn't alone in experiencing a very wet Tuesday.

0:00:250:00:29

It was the top of this pile and this isn't all of the figures,

0:00:290:00:34

there was rain after those readings were taken.

0:00:340:00:38

Coming from an active weather front tied in with an area of

0:00:380:00:41

low pressure.

0:00:410:00:42

The low pressure itself is migrating a bit further

0:00:420:00:45

north into the heart of Scandinavia but it is leaving behind this

0:00:450:00:48

weather front and a slow-moving front at that.

0:00:480:00:52

It just about gets away from Birmingham in the first

0:00:520:00:55

part of the day but it lingers across East Anglia and the

0:00:550:00:58

south-east and because of that the Met Office have warnings out.

0:00:580:01:02

We could see rainfall totals in some areas getting up to 60-80mm.

0:01:020:01:07

But it's not like that everywhere.

0:01:070:01:09

Many northern and western parts beginning to

0:01:090:01:11

benefit from this area of high pressure.

0:01:110:01:14

Which really wants to dominate the whole of the British Isles

0:01:140:01:18

but you will notice it does take a time before we see the last

0:01:180:01:22

of Wednesday's rainfall getting away from East Anglia and the south-east.

0:01:220:01:26

Then many may well enjoy consecutive dry days and I say that with

0:01:260:01:31

some relish because we haven't said it too often so far this summer.

0:01:310:01:35

Can we make it three in a row? Not really.

0:01:350:01:38

It's obvious a low pressure close to Iceland is throwing its fronts

0:01:380:01:43

with a combination of wind

0:01:430:01:45

and rain increasingly down and across all

0:01:450:01:48

parts of the British Isles through Friday but it will take a

0:01:480:01:51

while before it gets down into that south-eastern quarter.

0:01:510:01:55

Is this variability going to continue on into the weekend?

0:01:560:02:01

Thankfully, no, not really.

0:02:010:02:03

Just for long enough we are going to see a build of high pressure

0:02:030:02:08

moving in.

0:02:080:02:09

The system from Friday will clear away from the south-east.

0:02:090:02:12

It will be a mixture of dry weather and the odd passing shower.

0:02:120:02:17

Not too much in the way of breeze,

0:02:170:02:19

you'll notice those isobars are widely spaced.

0:02:190:02:22

Here comes Sunday and again devoid of frontal systems

0:02:220:02:26

so many areas could get away with another dry day.

0:02:260:02:30

Lurking behind, signs of things to come

0:02:300:02:35

because as we get into the start of

0:02:350:02:37

next week the jet stream will take

0:02:370:02:39

up this orientation and it is the

0:02:390:02:42

feature that steers weather

0:02:420:02:45

systems and it is pointing towards the British Isles.

0:02:450:02:50

High pressure is there to be had tantalisingly close,

0:02:500:02:54

just to the south but along the line of the jet stream

0:02:540:02:58

and to the north,

0:02:580:03:00

that's the mechanism that will steer

0:03:000:03:02

these areas of low pressure close

0:03:020:03:04

to us with high pressure killing the activity as they come our way.

0:03:040:03:12

Because that flow is coming from a relatively cool Atlantic

0:03:220:03:25

the temperatures will show no sign of a heat wave.
