The UK's next named storm is on the way,

0:00:020:00:04

then it turns colder - snow showers, frost and ice.

0:00:040:00:07

That's just this week's weather!

0:00:070:00:09

And this forecast has to get through next week too. Better crack on.

0:00:090:00:12

I'll start with a view of Tuesday -

0:00:120:00:14

grey, mild, all pretty quiet now,

0:00:140:00:16

but that's about to change.

0:00:160:00:17

Looking to the Atlantic,

0:00:170:00:19

this big swirl of cloud,

0:00:190:00:21

Storm Caroline, on the way

0:00:210:00:23

to the UK. Looks like Scotland

0:00:230:00:25

will bear the brunt of the strongest winds on Thursday,

0:00:250:00:28

but the winds will pick up across the board, thanks to Storm Caroline,

0:00:280:00:31

then as it moves away, it'll turn much colder

0:00:310:00:34

and at the end of the week, some of us will be dealing with

0:00:340:00:37

snow showers, frosty and icy nights too.

0:00:370:00:39

First, Wednesday's weather,

0:00:390:00:42

and one last mild day.

0:00:420:00:44

The flow of air from the south, southwest,

0:00:440:00:47

plenty of cloud but some brighter breaks

0:00:470:00:49

for England, Wales and northeast Scotland.

0:00:490:00:51

Northern Ireland, elsewhere in Scotland

0:00:510:00:54

will see rain moving in

0:00:540:00:56

and temperatures top out at 10 to maybe 13, 14,

0:00:560:00:58

but by the end of Wednesday,

0:00:580:01:00

gales are developing

0:01:000:01:02

in western areas. There's Caroline,

0:01:020:01:04

passing to the north of Scotland,

0:01:040:01:06

and it is Scotland on Thursday that will see the strongest gusts,

0:01:060:01:09

maybe 80mph in the north,

0:01:090:01:11

but the risk of disruptive gusts elsewhere.

0:01:110:01:13

It will be windy across the UK with gales,

0:01:130:01:16

a band of rain sweeping southwards,

0:01:160:01:18

showers following to the northwest,

0:01:180:01:21

and as the colder air moves south across the UK,

0:01:210:01:23

this is what the temperatures will be at the end of the afternoon.

0:01:230:01:26

We're likely to see blizzards across parts of northern Scotland

0:01:260:01:29

going into Friday. By Friday, Caroline is out into Scandinavia,

0:01:290:01:33

but look at the flow of air from the Arctic,

0:01:330:01:36

isobars tight together,

0:01:360:01:38

so strong, cold winds surging south across the UK,

0:01:380:01:41

and for some of us, the day will start very wintery,

0:01:410:01:44

with snow showers affecting northern and western parts,

0:01:440:01:48

Northern Ireland, Wales and western England,

0:01:480:01:51

icy in places too. Elsewhere, quite a bit of sunshine.

0:01:510:01:54

Sunshine or snow showers, it's going to feel bitterly cold,

0:01:540:01:57

colder than the thermometer might suggest,

0:01:570:02:00

feeling closer to or below freezing on Friday,

0:02:000:02:03

into Saturday too, which starts frosty,

0:02:030:02:06

and the sleet and snow showers will be close to North Sea coasts,

0:02:060:02:09

where winds will be strongest,

0:02:090:02:12

and it'll feel coldest as a result.

0:02:120:02:14

Elsewhere, loads of sunshine,

0:02:140:02:16

but by Sunday - cold start, frosty start,

0:02:160:02:18

and we're going to bring an Atlantic weather system

0:02:180:02:21

into the UK, with the moisture, into that cold air.

0:02:210:02:24

There's a lot of uncertainty

0:02:240:02:25

about how quickly this will move across the UK,

0:02:250:02:27

but some of us are likely to see some snow

0:02:270:02:30

as it runs into the cold air,

0:02:300:02:32

and there's a risk of significant snow in places,

0:02:320:02:34

particularly across northern parts of the UK,

0:02:340:02:37

so for Sunday, this is very much a case of watch this space.

0:02:370:02:40

I think there'll be further

0:02:400:02:41

similar problems into next week,

0:02:410:02:44

because the weather pattern

0:02:440:02:45

stays the same. The jet stream

0:02:450:02:47

just lurking to the west of us,

0:02:470:02:48

but much of the UK will be on the

0:02:480:02:50

northern side of the jet stream.

0:02:500:02:52

What does that mean?

0:02:520:02:53

It means on the cold side,

0:02:530:02:55

so cold air in place for most of us,

0:02:550:02:56

milder flirtations at times

0:02:560:02:58

with the south and southwest,

0:02:580:03:00

and along the jet stream,

0:03:000:03:02

we're likely to see some further

0:03:020:03:03

weather systems from the Atlantic,

0:03:030:03:05

bringing moisture into cold air.

0:03:050:03:07

Where it's mild to the south

0:03:070:03:08

and southwest, maybe rain,

0:03:080:03:10

but elsewhere in the UK,

0:03:100:03:11

in the cold air, on the northern side of the jet stream,

0:03:110:03:14

a risk of snow. So, next week looking cold for most of us,

0:03:140:03:16

often windy

0:03:160:03:18

and a risk of further snow.

0:03:180:03:19

So next week is looking interesting.

0:03:190:03:21

That's after this week's rollercoaster ride of temperatures

0:03:210:03:25

and, of course, Storm Caroline.
