As forecast, it was a stormy day across northern Britain with
gales in the far north of Scotland gusting
in excess of 90mph.
It wasn't like it everywhere, of course.
In fact, in the Lowlands, it was closer to around 50 or 60, but
we've had some pretty interesting pictures of strong gusts of wind.
But the afternoon, in many parts of the country,
was actually very beautiful as well.
We had a weather front sweeping across the UK with
rain in the morning
and then the skies cleared,
So there's been some fine weather around as well,
it's not been all bad.
This is Storm Caroline as we head into Friday,
still making its presence felt
in the far north of Scotland there,
impacting parts of Scandinavia as well.
A lot of isobars there,
so still some very strong winds there
for Orkney, Shetland
and the north of Scotland,
but we're going to be focusing
on the snow showers through
the course of Friday.
Northern Scotland, Northern Ireland,
the north-west of England and Wales,
possibly into the Midlands as well,
maybe into the south-west of England too.
And in some areas we could see
five or ten centimetres here,
but just hit and miss,
not every town and city, maybe up
to 20 centimetres of fresh snow there
across the Scottish hills.
And then through the course of Friday night,
you can see quite a few
of those snow showers
falling in the same place here,
maybe some of them even reaching London,
but in London we're just talking about a few flakes.
Notice how many other parts of the country,
here's the clock,
early on Saturday morning,
not getting much snow at all.
So this period that we're
going through right now
will be very hit and miss
as far as the snow showers are concerned,
but it is going to be cold everywhere.
On Saturday, 2 or 3 degrees on the thermometer,
it's still going to be quite windy,
particularly in the north,
so it'll feel more like
-5 degrees there in Aberdeen.
So here's a look at Saturday night
and then into Sunday,
still a lot of cold air,
a cold night, Sunday morning,
and a weather front moves into that colder air.
What does that mean? That means that there's
a potential for some snow. Look how the snow forms.
The blue's obviously the rain, snow across Wales,
into Northern Ireland, two areas here and then
the snow falls across the Midlands
and parts of northern England.
A lot of uncertainty with this,
it could be further north,
it could be further south,
so where that snow falls,
we're still not entirely sure,
but there is a risk that
there will be some as we go
through the course of Sunday.
Here's the start of the week,
low pressure systems
did in to the south of us.
When we get this pattern
with low pressures moving
to the south of us,
we get streams of colder air
coming in from the north.
So here's a look at Monday.
You can see where the winds are coming from,
all the way from the north,
a northerly from the Arctic,
so still pretty chilly.
Temperatures only around about
2 or 3 degrees in the north.
A little bit milder maybe in the south,
7 degrees Celsius,
but most of the rain
actually passes towards the south of us.
Here's a look at Tuesday,
a bit of a gap in the weather.
Looks like Tuesday might be a brighter day,
with some sunshine.
We're in between weather systems
and maybe very briefly things are
going to warm up just a little bit
with temperatures approaching
9 degrees there in Plymouth.
But the idea is that overall
for most of next week
and into the latter part of next week,
the jet stream is going to be around about here.
We're on the cold side of the jet stream.
You can clearly see where the cold air is here,
so that means that it's not going to be warming up.
The mild air with the low pressure and the rain is going to stay
to the south of us, moving into France.
We're going to stay in the cold air,
still at risk of some snow showers,
particularly across northern areas of the UK,
so overall, yes, the temperatures might go up a little bit early
in the week, but on balance we're going to stay in the colder air.
That's it for me. Thanks for watching.
