I'm sure you know how it works by now, we give

0:00:020:00:04

you the next few days forecast in considerable detail

0:00:040:00:07

and then take a look at what's coming our way

0:00:070:00:10

from about the middle of next week on towards the end of the week.

0:00:100:00:14

Wednesday offered up some really lovely weather across northern

0:00:140:00:18

and western parts of the British Isles.

0:00:180:00:20

Speckled cloud for the most part,

0:00:200:00:22

a complete contrast as I drag you further south

0:00:220:00:25

and east where we become entangled with quite an active weather front.

0:00:250:00:30

It was that miserable across not only London

0:00:300:00:34

but a portion of the south and east of the British Isles.

0:00:340:00:37

The 36 hour rainfall totals to Wednesday evening.

0:00:370:00:42

Many locations there pushing towards,

0:00:420:00:44

if not exceeding two inches.

0:00:440:00:47

When will it improve in that neck of the woods?

0:00:470:00:49

As early as Thursday.

0:00:490:00:52

That front will drift away towards the near continent.

0:00:520:00:55

The ridge of high pressure

0:00:550:00:57

topples in to become very much the dominant feature of Thursday.

0:00:570:01:01

Settling things down nicely.

0:01:010:01:03

There will be some early rain across the far south-east

0:01:030:01:05

but that heads off towards the Channel and the near continent

0:01:050:01:08

leaving behind the prospect of a little cloud

0:01:080:01:11

developing through the day.

0:01:110:01:12

Many areas will be dry.

0:01:120:01:14

Save perhaps for the far north and north-west of Scotland

0:01:140:01:17

where increasing cloud will bring rain.

0:01:170:01:20

The first signs of a change.

0:01:200:01:23

That was but a transient ridge, here comes the area of low pressure.

0:01:230:01:27

A lot of isobars there.

0:01:270:01:29

It will be wet and windy as fronts

0:01:290:01:32

head ever further south and east.

0:01:320:01:35

It will be into the afternoon before we see that cloud really

0:01:350:01:39

getting into East Anglia and the rain to follow.

0:01:390:01:41

Does that set us up for the weekend?

0:01:410:01:44

Thankfully not.

0:01:440:01:45

The low pressure swings into the northern part of the Norwegian Sea,

0:01:450:01:48

the trailing fronts take a time to pull away from the south-east.

0:01:480:01:54

But once they do Saturday is shaping up to be a decent day.

0:01:540:01:58

It isn't wall to wall sunshine

0:01:580:02:00

and there are some showers to be had

0:02:000:02:02

on a noticeable breeze in Scotland.

0:02:020:02:05

But from Saturday, decent day,

0:02:050:02:07

into Sunday that high pressure ridge is still there.

0:02:070:02:11

Sunday shaping up to be a pretty decent day.

0:02:110:02:15

A lot of dry weather.

0:02:150:02:16

Fair amount of sunshine as well.

0:02:160:02:19

Temperatures, nothing to write home about.

0:02:190:02:21

The breeze is still coming in from the Atlantic.

0:02:210:02:23

We're not getting any heat from the continent.

0:02:230:02:26

Topping out at 20-21.

0:02:260:02:29

That ridge of high pressure is transient because as we start

0:02:290:02:33

the new week a new set of weather fronts roll in from the Atlantic.

0:02:330:02:37

Again there is the prospect of rain quite extensively across Britain.

0:02:370:02:42

Temperatures never better than 21 or 22.

0:02:420:02:44

Into the first half of the forthcoming week you

0:02:450:02:49

see there is that little ridge of high pressure

0:02:490:02:51

so it's not a write off to start the week.

0:02:510:02:55

By the middle part of the week we'll be looking into the Atlantic and

0:02:550:02:59

the signs are at the moment there could be an area of low pressure.

0:02:590:03:03

I show you this sort of thing all the time and here we go again.

0:03:030:03:06

New area of low pressure from the Atlantic later in the week,

0:03:060:03:09

Thursday or Friday

0:03:090:03:10

heading up towards that north-western corner of Scotland.

0:03:100:03:14

The over all theme of the coming week looks to be...

0:03:150:03:17

That low that I showed you could deliver gales if not severe gales.

0:03:220:03:25

We're going to have to keep you updated on that particular feature.

0:03:250:03:28
