A very warm welcome to you.

0:00:020:00:03

Let's see if there's any warmer weather on the way,

0:00:030:00:05

because in the last couple of days it's been on the chilly side,

0:00:050:00:09

and it certainly has been very cold in the Highlands of Scotland,

0:00:090:00:12

cold enough for snow, and a rare red squirrel there playing in the snow.

0:00:120:00:17

And talking about red,

0:00:170:00:18

a beautiful red sunset here in King's Cross in London.

0:00:180:00:24

So, the next few days are certainly going to be that little bit milder.

0:00:240:00:27

We're not talking about any particularly high temperatures,

0:00:270:00:30

but you'll notice those temperatures creeping up by at least

0:00:300:00:33

three or four degrees across most of the UK.

0:00:330:00:35

And the reason for it is we have the jet stream, which is pushing

0:00:350:00:38

in weather fronts in our direction. That means some cloud and rain.

0:00:380:00:42

Then you can see this wedge of slightly warmer air

0:00:420:00:46

drifting off the Atlantic and the cold air that's been over us

0:00:460:00:49

the last few days moving away towards the east.

0:00:490:00:52

And this process is under way, so we have a lot of cloud,

0:00:520:00:56

spots of rain around across some northern and western areas,

0:00:560:00:58

but it's not going to be like it for everybody on Tuesday.

0:00:580:01:01

In fact, there is some fine weather around, as well,

0:01:010:01:03

and that's going to be across Scotland. Here, a lovely autumn day.

0:01:030:01:07

It is going to feel on the nippy side, though.

0:01:070:01:09

Temperatures around six degrees,

0:01:090:01:11

so perhaps not everywhere is it going to be mild.

0:01:110:01:13

But by the time we get to northern England,

0:01:130:01:15

the Midlands and the south, here temperatures will be

0:01:150:01:18

into double figures during the course of the afternoon.

0:01:180:01:22

You can see it's not going to be sunny at all,

0:01:220:01:23

because there'll be a lot of cloud around

0:01:230:01:25

and there'll be some dribs and drabs of rain.

0:01:250:01:27

That's because the weather front is pretty much

0:01:270:01:30

sitting on top of southern parts of the UK. So that's Tuesday.

0:01:300:01:33

Now, Tuesday night,

0:01:330:01:34

it looks like it might turn quite foggy almost anywhere across the UK,

0:01:340:01:38

so there could be some problems with

0:01:380:01:40

travel first thing in the morning on Wednesday.

0:01:400:01:42

So let's have a look at that mist and fog, then.

0:01:420:01:44

It will be mostly across the southern half of the UK,

0:01:440:01:47

but I wouldn't rule out some fog patches further north, as well.

0:01:470:01:50

So, early in the morning, a lot of low grey cloud.

0:01:500:01:54

There'll be mist and fog particularly in the prone areas

0:01:540:01:56

but certainly not everybody,

0:01:560:01:58

because there will be some sunshine first thing, as well.

0:01:580:02:00

Those temperatures could actually get up

0:02:000:02:02

to about 13 degrees if the sun does come through.

0:02:020:02:05

In the north, always a little bit colder, closer to seven degrees.

0:02:050:02:08

There was a little bit of rain across the north of the country,

0:02:080:02:11

and on Thursday we are expecting another weather front to

0:02:110:02:14

move in, so north-western areas on Thursday, a cold front moves

0:02:140:02:18

through, we have some cloud and rain, the breeze picks up, as well.

0:02:180:02:21

To the south of that, if the clouds break, briefly temperatures could

0:02:210:02:24

even get into the low teens, around 13 degrees, for example, in London.

0:02:240:02:28

But that weather front is through by the time we're through the week,

0:02:280:02:31

and you can see those temperatures behind the cold front dip down

0:02:310:02:34

a little bit, back to single figures across, say,

0:02:340:02:36

the northern two thirds of the country.

0:02:360:02:39

And then into the weekend. Once the weather fronts have gone,

0:02:390:02:42

it looks like this high pressure will start to build.

0:02:420:02:44

This high pressure's going to do one of two things.

0:02:440:02:46

First of all, in the south, west and central parts of the country

0:02:460:02:49

it'll be calm, so we could see a return of mist and fog here.

0:02:490:02:53

But northern and eastern areas,

0:02:530:02:55

quite a stiff wind blowing out of the north or the north-west.

0:02:550:02:58

So the thinking is that that high pressure which is going to

0:02:580:03:01

be affecting many central and south- western areas through Saturday

0:03:010:03:04

will probably drift across the UK into Sunday

0:03:040:03:07

and we'll all be under the influence of that high pressure,

0:03:070:03:11

and the thinking is it won't be sticking around just through

0:03:110:03:14

the weekend but also well into next week.

0:03:140:03:16

So here's the summary for next week.

0:03:160:03:19

The high pressure persists, it'll be fairly chilly,

0:03:190:03:22

and with that will come a risk of frost and fog.

0:03:220:03:26

That's it from me. Thanks for watching.
