Hello, thanks for joining me.
We'll be giving you a fair amount of detail
on how we expect to see the weather developing
right across the British Isles over the next few days,
and that will take us through the weekend
and into the first part of next week.
Then we'll try and give you some themes
about what happens next week.
In the shorter term,
fairly quiet spell of weather at the moment,
a little weak ridge of high pressure, there,
following in behind an old weather front
that was all over the eastern side
of the British Isles on Wednesday,
still producing enough cloud
for the odd bit and piece of rain, here.
The main story, first up, though,
across many western areas is one of fog,
and some of that fog
may well linger on through the day -
but, if you manage to get rid of that,
it is in the west
that you're more likely to see
the better chance of sunshine.
not really responding to that -
particularly where you hold on to the fog
you could be down 2, 3, 4 degrees
either in the west or in the east,
close by to that old front.
That old front,
there's still enough about it
still to be producing the odd spot of drizzle
as we get on through Thursday night
into the first part of Friday.
Out towards the west, again,
it's a combination of pretty chilly fare
and that prospect of some fog, as well.
Those quiet conditions look set to stay on
into the first part of Friday, certainly,
although we'll begin to see
something of a change moving in
towards the west as, initially,
it's the breeze that picks up,
so, I don't think Northern Ireland
will see much of a problem with fog
on Friday morning.
It could still be an issue for other parts,
but, again, it's a cloudy day,
the odd spot of rain,
where the cloud thickens up
for any length of time.
Hints of brightness, yes,
but that's for the favoured few
rather than for the many.
Even on into the weekend,
this area of low pressure
is trying to throw that frontal system
in towards British Isles,
but making heavy weather of it,
if you'll forgive the pun,
simply because it's running into the high pressure
dominant over Europe.
So, the front, if you happen to get it,
stays with you for the greater part of the day,
and that means many western parts,
and especially through Northern Ireland,
and here we are, as far ahead as Sunday,
and that weather front rather dying a death.
Here, you'll have to join the dots
through central and eastern parts.
That's the remnants of that front.
Something a good deal more active
coming in from the Atlantic
producing very much more wet and very much more windy weather -
and here comes that weather front.
Gradually, we suspect, at this range -
and it is a suspicion -
working its way across the British Isles.
I think that's fairly well nailed on,
but my suspicions are raised
about just how quickly it's going to get away
from the eastern side of the British Isles.
Following on behind,
there are brighter skies,
but, my word, I think the temperatures
are going to begin to dip away,
and that's because we will find ourselves
in the first part of next week
on the cold side of the jet stream.
You'll see that there is mild air to be had,
but, my word, it's away, away down
towards the south-west of the British Isles,
and the contrast is such
between the colder air to the north
and the milder air to the south
that there will be a lot of wind generated,
and there will be westerlies,
and they'll rattle in a number of showers.
Some of those really quite squally, thundery,
and they'll be snowy on the higher ground.
As we move towards the end of the week,
so the low pressure moves its station
from the north-west of us out towards the east,
high pressure builds out towards the west,
and that generates
something of a north to north-westerly wind
down and across all parts of the British Isles.
Now, that orientation
is pretty short-lived.
I think what we have to work on
for the greater part of that week
is that it'll be often windy,
really quite wintry, those showers,
across the northern half of the British Isles,
and then, with that change in orientation
to the north,
a bit of a short, sharp shock
of colder weather to many parts.
