Hello. Thanks for tuning in to our weather for the next week or so,

0:00:010:00:05

and there is a lot happening on the weather front.

0:00:050:00:08

Potential snow on the way as well.

0:00:080:00:10

The first spell of snow

0:00:100:00:11

could actually come during the course of the night -

0:00:110:00:14

this is a weather front

0:00:140:00:15

that's approaching out of the Atlantic here.

0:00:150:00:18

Let me show you where the battle of the mild and the cold is.

0:00:180:00:21

You can see the mild air coming out of the Azores,

0:00:210:00:24

way down towards the south,

0:00:240:00:25

cold air streaming out of Greenland,

0:00:250:00:27

and where you get this clash, that's where the snow forms.

0:00:270:00:30

So through the course of the night, we've got some snow

0:00:300:00:32

across northern parts of England, mostly across the hills,

0:00:320:00:35

but not exclusively, and Scotland as well.

0:00:350:00:38

On top of that, gale-force winds also rattling through

0:00:380:00:41

he north-west of the country, so places like Liverpool, Manchester,

0:00:410:00:44

through Yorkshire towards eastern counties as well.

0:00:440:00:48

There could be some very rough winds rattling your windows

0:00:480:00:51

during the night,

0:00:510:00:53

and behind me you can see lots of wintry showers heading our way.

0:00:530:00:55

So in the wake of this nasty area of low pressure,

0:00:550:00:58

which will still be bringing a lot of wind

0:00:580:01:00

towards these eastern areas in the morning,

0:01:000:01:02

in the wake of it, we've got strong north-westerly winds,

0:01:020:01:06

lots of wintry showers. Some of them could just about settle

0:01:060:01:09

and I wouldn't be surprised if we get some flakes of snow

0:01:090:01:12

as far south as south-eastern parts of the UK.

0:01:120:01:15

But most of them will be across northern and western areas.

0:01:150:01:18

You can see we're in the cold air mass during Sunday

0:01:180:01:21

and into Monday as well,

0:01:210:01:22

but the mild air's being pushed towards the south.

0:01:220:01:25

Here's the jet stream racing across the Atlantic

0:01:250:01:28

and that cold air established across the UK

0:01:280:01:30

during the course of Monday.

0:01:300:01:32

So Monday starts off cold and crisp,

0:01:320:01:34

there'll probably be frost around as well.

0:01:340:01:36

Look - there's another weather front.

0:01:360:01:38

And you know I showed you that cold air mass coming out of the Atlantic?

0:01:380:01:42

That weather front is stuck in the cold air,

0:01:420:01:44

so that could spell trouble Monday night into Tuesday.

0:01:440:01:48

Must stay tuned to weather forecasts,

0:01:480:01:50

because with this weather front sitting in the cold air,

0:01:500:01:52

we could see a spell of snow

0:01:520:01:54

approaching...many parts of the UK, in fact,

0:01:540:01:58

and it won't be just settling across the hills, necessarily.

0:01:580:02:01

Let's have a look at that in a bit more detail.

0:02:010:02:03

Here it is. Monday night into Tuesday,

0:02:030:02:04

snow across Ireland, into Scotland,

0:02:040:02:07

northern England, there could be some snow into Wales as well,

0:02:070:02:10

and some of this will be settling.

0:02:100:02:12

So this is a day, early on Tuesday,

0:02:120:02:14

we're going to be keeping a very close eye on that

0:02:140:02:17

to find out, to figure out exactly how much snow will fall.

0:02:170:02:20

But there could be a covering in places,

0:02:200:02:22

so worth staying in touch with the forecast for this particular day.

0:02:220:02:26

And then later on Tuesday, that weather front clears away,

0:02:260:02:29

the skies clear and we'll get some sunshine.

0:02:290:02:32

So there could be a covering of snow in some areas

0:02:320:02:35

during the course of the day as well.

0:02:350:02:37

So that's Tuesday - a cold day.

0:02:370:02:40

And then look what happens as we head into Wednesday.

0:02:400:02:42

Another little waft of milder air, and where you get that clash

0:02:420:02:45

between the mild and the cold and the jet stream on top of that,

0:02:450:02:49

that's where you get the weather fronts.

0:02:490:02:51

So there's going to be another weather front moving across the UK,

0:02:510:02:54

and here it is. What a mess it looks like on Wednesday morning.

0:02:540:02:58

Rain and snow mixing in. You just get a sense that that snow

0:02:580:03:01

is lifting northwards, so most of the snow is probably going to

0:03:010:03:04

fall across the hills, across northern areas,

0:03:040:03:06

whereas in the south, 10 degrees,

0:03:060:03:08

that's a little bit too mild for snow.

0:03:080:03:10

But an unpleasant day, I think, for many of us on Wednesday.

0:03:100:03:13

Beyond that, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday,

0:03:130:03:17

it looks like cold north-westerly winds will prevail across the UK.

0:03:170:03:21

It's very cold out there in the Atlantic,

0:03:210:03:22

so that's going to bring some further wintry showers,

0:03:220:03:25

and some of it will be settling. Bye-bye.
