Hello. Since we had that run of a couple of named storms,
things have been quite quiet on the weather front,
but it's that time of year
and you wouldn't expect that spell of quiet weather
to last for any great length of time,
and a look at Friday's chart
shows there is signs of a change out towards
the west, but before that arrives,
we still have that quiet look to the weather,
and that tends to mean fog at this time of year.
It will be there again,
not necessarily where it's been in recent nights.
There is that risk for central and western parts particularly,
but as the day gets going,
there will be sunshine across western areas,
and a speckling of showers.
Not much more than that.
Some of you may even stay dry all day.
Just because we'll see more in the way of breeze
into Saturday, the fog risk is much reduced,
but we are going to replace it with another type of weather -
in the form of an active weather front.
Certainly for western parts on Saturday,
there could be quite a bit of rain
across Northern Ireland initially,
then swinging into western Scotland, Wales
and the western side of England.
Further east, not too much in the way of sunshine, I'm afraid.
At its thickest, the cloud, even away from that frontal system,
just generating the odd showery burst of rain.
That'll be the case getting up into the Northern Isles.
That same weather front
is making heavy weather
of getting further towards the east,
and it weakens all the while
as it runs into that area of high pressure,
so it'll be more of a band of cloud with the odd spot of rain,
not much more than that, come Sunday.
Towards the northwest,
a more active weather system
brings another spell of wet and windy weather,
initially into the northwest
but as we get on through Monday,
there is no escape.
You will at some point
see that spell of wet and windy weather
wherever you're spending the day.
There is some doubt at this range
as to how quickly that rain will get away
from the southeast.
No more the south and south-westerly breezes.
Once that front is through,
look where the wind is coming from.
Trace the isobars back
and they arc away towards the western side of Iceland
and up towards the Arctic.
There will be a different feel
to the days as we move out of Monday
through to Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and perhaps as far ahead
so the early part of next week,
the mild air is away to the south of us,
we are very much on the cold side of the jet stream,
there'll be plenty of wind
and across the top two-thirds of the British Isles,
those showers will be wintry
and snow will begin to accumulate.
That regime will do us
from about late Monday
on through Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and into Friday.
By the end of the week, we'll have
low pressure towards the northwest
but in the early part
of the weekend, it may well
slip away towards the near Continent
and that will allow a change in wind direction,
and that means a change in the shower distribution.
That is but a brief interlude.
Sunday and the first part of Monday
perhaps, it'll be quiet for a time
and then the low pressure goes
back to where we've seen it
for a few days - high pressure
well away towards the Azores -
but that does leave us again
with quite a noticeable flow
coming in from the west
or just north of west.
That's some way off.
The next week is going to be
often windy, really quite wintry
with those showers,
and there is just that chance
it'll turn colder for a time.
Wherever you are, take care.
