You will have noticed we are in a spell of very changeable weather

0:00:020:00:05

lasting all the way through much of next week.

0:00:050:00:07

Low pressure, that means wet at times, windy, cool,

0:00:070:00:10

but there are indications that

0:00:100:00:12

from next weekend going into the following week,

0:00:120:00:15

things will turn a little more settled

0:00:150:00:17

but it is far from set in stone.

0:00:170:00:19

It is low pressure that's across us at the moment,

0:00:190:00:22

will be through the weekend and for much of next week,

0:00:220:00:25

and around that area of low pressure

0:00:250:00:27

it's a cool wind blowing in during Saturday,

0:00:270:00:29

especially across the west and south of the UK,

0:00:290:00:31

and there will be plenty of showers.

0:00:310:00:33

Quite a few from the word go through Northern Ireland

0:00:330:00:35

and pushing through north-west England in particular, where

0:00:350:00:38

it's pretty wet in the morning.

0:00:380:00:39

Notice the showers developing more widely,

0:00:390:00:41

especially across England and Wales, as we go through the afternoon,

0:00:410:00:44

so we'll take a look at things at 4pm.

0:00:440:00:46

Actually not too many showers in Scotland,

0:00:460:00:48

parts of south-west Scotland could well stay dry

0:00:480:00:50

and in the afternoon the showers begin to fade away

0:00:500:00:52

from Northern Ireland, so more of us right at this stage.

0:00:520:00:55

Late in the afternoon, going into the evening, I think

0:00:550:00:57

more of us in Wales and western England will see some sunshine,

0:00:570:01:00

rather than be getting wet,

0:01:000:01:01

but more of central and eastern England and into the southeast

0:01:010:01:04

are seeing these showers at 4pm

0:01:040:01:07

but as is ever the case with showers, some places will miss them

0:01:070:01:10

and stay dry, but catch a shower, could be heavy and thundery.

0:01:100:01:13

Now, the showers will fade away gradually during Saturday evening

0:01:130:01:16

and through Saturday night it will be mainly dry

0:01:160:01:18

and clear for a time, the winds turning lighter,

0:01:180:01:20

so it will be chilly going into Sunday morning,

0:01:200:01:22

well down into single figures in some spots,

0:01:220:01:25

and then another area of low pressure is coming in

0:01:250:01:27

for part two of the weekend,

0:01:270:01:29

so that will bring rain quite early on across Scotland,

0:01:290:01:32

moving through Northern Ireland, then clearing away

0:01:320:01:34

and then pushing south-eastwards across England and Wales.

0:01:340:01:37

Fairly slow process, won't be until late on before

0:01:370:01:40

it gets to eastern parts of England

0:01:400:01:41

and behind this band of rain there will be further showers,

0:01:410:01:44

and the wind picking up as well,

0:01:440:01:46

and I think especially Sunday night and into Monday

0:01:460:01:48

across parts of Wales and south west England,

0:01:480:01:51

gales and perhaps even an exposure risk of severe gales as well,

0:01:510:01:54

so we need to just keep an eye on that but be aware,

0:01:540:01:57

a spell of very windy weather, and Monday remains very blustery,

0:01:570:02:00

that familiar mixture of sunshine and showers,

0:02:000:02:03

though they may ease, especially western parts, later in the day.

0:02:030:02:06

As we go from Monday into Tuesday,

0:02:060:02:08

watching another possible weather system here,

0:02:080:02:11

this one has a lot of uncertainty associated with it,

0:02:110:02:13

the strength of wind around it,

0:02:130:02:15

how far north it's going to push the rain,

0:02:150:02:17

but southern parts of the UK could see a longer spell of rain

0:02:170:02:19

whereas elsewhere showers will be most frequent

0:02:190:02:21

towards the north-west of the UK.

0:02:210:02:23

In between the two weather systems you could end up mainly dry

0:02:230:02:26

but low pressure still very much on the scene,

0:02:260:02:28

then as we go into Wednesday,

0:02:280:02:30

so again the source of showers on Wednesday,

0:02:300:02:33

some longer spells of rain in places,

0:02:330:02:35

still the risk of that across southern parts of the UK,

0:02:350:02:37

who it looks like are going to see the strongest winds.

0:02:370:02:40

Still the potential for some gales.

0:02:400:02:41

That's something else to keep an eye on,

0:02:410:02:43

and it's still on the cool side,

0:02:430:02:45

but heading towards the end of the week and into the weekend,

0:02:450:02:48

this area of high pressure looks like becoming more established

0:02:480:02:51

across the Atlantic and then maybe just edging towards us,

0:02:510:02:55

and that's the source of potentially settling things down,

0:02:550:02:58

and it looks like from mid-month,

0:02:580:03:00

things will still be changeable

0:03:000:03:02

but the gaps between weather systems will be longer,

0:03:020:03:05

so longer, more settled spells with warmer days

0:03:050:03:08

but under clear skies, quite chilly nights

0:03:080:03:11

and the potential for some mist and fog patches,

0:03:110:03:13

maybe a touch of frost, but I mentioned earlier,

0:03:130:03:16

it's still not set in stone,

0:03:160:03:17

it's because all of this tropical weather activity in the Atlantic.

0:03:170:03:21

It breeds uncertainty into longer range forecasts,

0:03:210:03:23

so there is a hint of something more settled on the horizon

0:03:230:03:27

but it yet may not happen.
