As forecast, it was a stormy day across northern Britain with

0:00:020:00:05

gales in the far north of Scotland gusting

0:00:050:00:08

in excess of 90mph.

0:00:080:00:09

It wasn't like it everywhere, of course.

0:00:090:00:12

In fact, in the Lowlands, it was closer to around 50 or 60, but

0:00:120:00:16

we've had some pretty interesting pictures of strong gusts of wind.

0:00:160:00:19

But the afternoon, in many parts of the country,

0:00:190:00:22

was actually very beautiful as well.

0:00:220:00:24

We had a weather front sweeping across the UK with

0:00:240:00:26

rain in the morning

0:00:260:00:27

and then the skies cleared,

0:00:270:00:28

So there's been some fine weather around as well,

0:00:280:00:31

it's not been all bad.

0:00:310:00:33

This is Storm Caroline as we head into Friday,

0:00:330:00:35

still making its presence felt

0:00:350:00:37

in the far north of Scotland there,

0:00:370:00:39

impacting parts of Scandinavia as well.

0:00:390:00:40

A lot of isobars there,

0:00:400:00:41

so still some very strong winds there

0:00:410:00:43

for Orkney, Shetland

0:00:430:00:44

and the north of Scotland,

0:00:440:00:45

but we're going to be focusing

0:00:450:00:47

on the snow showers through

0:00:470:00:49

the course of Friday.

0:00:490:00:50

Northern Scotland, Northern Ireland,

0:00:500:00:52

the north-west of England and Wales,

0:00:520:00:53

possibly into the Midlands as well,

0:00:530:00:55

maybe into the south-west of England too.

0:00:550:00:57

And in some areas we could see

0:00:570:00:58

five or ten centimetres here,

0:00:580:01:00

but just hit and miss,

0:01:000:01:01

not every town and city, maybe up

0:01:010:01:03

to 20 centimetres of fresh snow there

0:01:030:01:05

across the Scottish hills.

0:01:050:01:06

And then through the course of Friday night,

0:01:060:01:09

you can see quite a few

0:01:090:01:10

of those snow showers

0:01:100:01:11

falling in the same place here,

0:01:110:01:12

maybe some of them even reaching London,

0:01:120:01:15

but in London we're just talking about a few flakes.

0:01:150:01:17

Notice how many other parts of the country,

0:01:170:01:19

here's the clock,

0:01:190:01:20

early on Saturday morning,

0:01:200:01:21

not getting much snow at all.

0:01:210:01:23

So this period that we're

0:01:230:01:24

going through right now

0:01:240:01:26

will be very hit and miss

0:01:260:01:27

as far as the snow showers are concerned,

0:01:270:01:30

but it is going to be cold everywhere.

0:01:300:01:31

On Saturday, 2 or 3 degrees on the thermometer,

0:01:310:01:33

it's still going to be quite windy,

0:01:330:01:35

particularly in the north,

0:01:350:01:36

so it'll feel more like

0:01:360:01:38

-5 degrees there in Aberdeen.

0:01:380:01:39

So here's a look at Saturday night

0:01:390:01:41

and then into Sunday,

0:01:410:01:43

still a lot of cold air,

0:01:430:01:44

a cold night, Sunday morning,

0:01:440:01:45

and a weather front moves into that colder air.

0:01:450:01:48

What does that mean? That means that there's

0:01:480:01:50

a potential for some snow. Look how the snow forms.

0:01:500:01:52

The blue's obviously the rain, snow across Wales,

0:01:520:01:54

into Northern Ireland, two areas here and then

0:01:540:01:57

the snow falls across the Midlands

0:01:570:01:58

and parts of northern England.

0:01:580:02:00

A lot of uncertainty with this,

0:02:000:02:01

it could be further north,

0:02:010:02:02

it could be further south,

0:02:020:02:03

so where that snow falls,

0:02:030:02:05

we're still not entirely sure,

0:02:050:02:06

but there is a risk that

0:02:060:02:07

there will be some as we go

0:02:070:02:08

through the course of Sunday.

0:02:080:02:10

Here's the start of the week,

0:02:100:02:11

low pressure systems

0:02:110:02:12

did in to the south of us.

0:02:120:02:14

When we get this pattern

0:02:140:02:15

with low pressures moving

0:02:150:02:16

to the south of us,

0:02:160:02:17

we get streams of colder air

0:02:170:02:18

coming in from the north.

0:02:180:02:20

So here's a look at Monday.

0:02:200:02:21

You can see where the winds are coming from,

0:02:210:02:23

all the way from the north,

0:02:230:02:24

a northerly from the Arctic,

0:02:240:02:25

so still pretty chilly.

0:02:250:02:27

Temperatures only around about

0:02:270:02:28

2 or 3 degrees in the north.

0:02:280:02:30

A little bit milder maybe in the south,

0:02:300:02:32

7 degrees Celsius,

0:02:320:02:33

but most of the rain

0:02:330:02:34

actually passes towards the south of us.

0:02:340:02:36

Here's a look at Tuesday,

0:02:360:02:38

a bit of a gap in the weather.

0:02:380:02:39

Looks like Tuesday might be a brighter day,

0:02:390:02:42

with some sunshine.

0:02:420:02:43

We're in between weather systems

0:02:430:02:44

and maybe very briefly things are

0:02:440:02:46

going to warm up just a little bit

0:02:460:02:48

with temperatures approaching

0:02:480:02:50

9 degrees there in Plymouth.

0:02:500:02:51

But the idea is that overall

0:02:510:02:53

for most of next week

0:02:530:02:55

and into the latter part of next week,

0:02:550:02:58

the jet stream is going to be around about here.

0:02:580:03:00

We're on the cold side of the jet stream.

0:03:000:03:02

You can clearly see where the cold air is here,

0:03:020:03:05

so that means that it's not going to be warming up.

0:03:050:03:07

The mild air with the low pressure and the rain is going to stay

0:03:070:03:10

to the south of us, moving into France.

0:03:100:03:11

We're going to stay in the cold air,

0:03:110:03:13

still at risk of some snow showers,

0:03:130:03:15

particularly across northern areas of the UK,

0:03:150:03:17

so overall, yes, the temperatures might go up a little bit early

0:03:170:03:21

in the week, but on balance we're going to stay in the colder air.

0:03:210:03:26

That's it for me. Thanks for watching.
