Hello there. Weather headlines for the next couple of days are likely

0:00:020:00:05

to be dominated by Hurricane Irma,

0:00:050:00:07

but back closer to home things have been a little bit quieter

0:00:070:00:10

for the start of this week.

0:00:100:00:12

Yes, we saw some rain on Tuesday, as you can see

0:00:120:00:14

by this Weather Watcher's picture in Aberdeenshire.

0:00:140:00:17

But for the second consecutive day it was Dorset that had

0:00:170:00:20

the breaks in the cloud and some sunshine, quite pleasant here.

0:00:200:00:23

Things will change, a fresher feel as we start to see a few more

0:00:230:00:26

isobars on the chart and the wind direction

0:00:260:00:29

swinging round to a fresher westerly.

0:00:290:00:31

It looks as though Wednesday will be a pretty quiet day,

0:00:310:00:34

there will be some decent breaks in the cloud, some sunshine for many,

0:00:340:00:37

with that westerly wind just feeding a little more cloud in

0:00:370:00:41

from the coast there. And we could see a scattering of showers.

0:00:410:00:44

Top temperatures down on comparrison to the last couple of days,

0:00:440:00:47

14-20C the high.

0:00:470:00:49

Now as we move out of Wednesday we continue with this story,

0:00:490:00:53

and weather conditions will turn a little bit fresher

0:00:530:00:56

through the night, perhaps in more rural parts

0:00:560:00:58

we'll have temperatures down to single figures.

0:00:580:01:00

But at the same time, into the far north and west,

0:01:000:01:03

the cloud and the rain will gather,

0:01:030:01:05

an indication of what's to come as we move into Thursday.

0:01:050:01:08

In fact, there's an area of low pressure that's going to move in

0:01:080:01:11

and it will bring some rain,

0:01:110:01:12

some of it heavy, across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

0:01:120:01:15

For England and Wales, not too bad a start to Thursday.

0:01:150:01:17

Again, predominantly fine and dry.

0:01:170:01:19

A little more cloud around, perhaps sheltered southeastern areas

0:01:190:01:22

seeing the best of the sunshine, but by the end of the day

0:01:220:01:25

it will spill its way a little but south into northern England

0:01:250:01:28

and perhaps north Wales.

0:01:280:01:29

Here, temperatures more subduded, 13-15C,

0:01:290:01:32

but highest values again of 20 in the southeast corner.

0:01:320:01:36

Now as we move out of Thursday into Friday, that area of low pressure

0:01:360:01:40

will sink its way steadily south and east and

0:01:400:01:42

it'll be a little bit more significant for all of us on Friday.

0:01:420:01:46

There's going to be some rain for all of us at some point.

0:01:460:01:48

Starting off pretty wet, pretty miserable across

0:01:480:01:51

central and southern parts of England. Behind that front

0:01:510:01:53

we'll see squally showers developing,

0:01:530:01:56

heavy with some hail and thunder and

0:01:560:01:58

the winds driving those showers in along the northwest coast.

0:01:580:02:01

13-18C, so temperatures a little bit subdued,

0:02:010:02:04

really, for the first week of September.

0:02:040:02:07

As we move out of Friday,

0:02:070:02:08

that area of low pressure really just anchors itself

0:02:080:02:12

across the far north and that's always going to feed in

0:02:120:02:14

these showers across the north and west facing coast,

0:02:140:02:17

the wind direction coming from the north, never a warm source, really.

0:02:170:02:21

13-15C the high here, 19, possibly, in the southeast corner.

0:02:210:02:26

And it looks as though as we start off into Sunday,

0:02:260:02:29

things will quieten down, but not for long.

0:02:290:02:31

Another area of low pressure arrives in from the Atlantic,

0:02:310:02:34

and this will sweep its way pretty quickly south and east.

0:02:340:02:38

So an early, dry and perhaps bright start in the southeast,

0:02:380:02:41

the cloud will gather, the rain arrives, the wet and windy weather

0:02:410:02:44

pushes in through Scotland, Northern Ireland

0:02:440:02:47

and eventually across England and Wales,

0:02:470:02:49

that during the latter stages of Sunday.

0:02:490:02:51

And if this area of low pressure is sitting in this position on Monday

0:02:510:02:54

it could be potentially quite a stormy day.

0:02:540:02:57

Plenty of isobars packed around that area of low pressure,

0:02:570:03:00

quite unusual, really, for the first week of September.

0:03:000:03:03

However, I have a glimmer of good news for you,

0:03:030:03:06

things look likely, potentially, to calm down,

0:03:060:03:08

as we see an area of high pressure building

0:03:080:03:11

in the longer eight-ten day period,

0:03:110:03:13

and this high pressure, well, it's a blocking high.

0:03:130:03:15

It's going to prevent those mobile westerly fronts

0:03:150:03:18

moving in from the Atlantic.

0:03:180:03:20

So things will turn a little bit quieter with lighter winds,

0:03:200:03:23

but the wind direction always coming from the north so cooler by day

0:03:230:03:26

and particularly through the night with a chance of some light frost.
