Hello. Thanks for tuning in to our weather for the next week or so,
and there is a lot happening on the weather front.
Potential snow on the way as well.
The first spell of snow
could actually come during the course of the night -
this is a weather front
that's approaching out of the Atlantic here.
Let me show you where the battle of the mild and the cold is.
You can see the mild air coming out of the Azores,
way down towards the south,
cold air streaming out of Greenland,
and where you get this clash, that's where the snow forms.
So through the course of the night, we've got some snow
across northern parts of England, mostly across the hills,
but not exclusively, and Scotland as well.
On top of that, gale-force winds also rattling through
he north-west of the country, so places like Liverpool, Manchester,
through Yorkshire towards eastern counties as well.
There could be some very rough winds rattling your windows
during the night,
and behind me you can see lots of wintry showers heading our way.
So in the wake of this nasty area of low pressure,
which will still be bringing a lot of wind
towards these eastern areas in the morning,
in the wake of it, we've got strong north-westerly winds,
lots of wintry showers. Some of them could just about settle
and I wouldn't be surprised if we get some flakes of snow
as far south as south-eastern parts of the UK.
But most of them will be across northern and western areas.
You can see we're in the cold air mass during Sunday
and into Monday as well,
but the mild air's being pushed towards the south.
Here's the jet stream racing across the Atlantic
and that cold air established across the UK
during the course of Monday.
So Monday starts off cold and crisp,
there'll probably be frost around as well.
Look - there's another weather front.
And you know I showed you that cold air mass coming out of the Atlantic?
That weather front is stuck in the cold air,
so that could spell trouble Monday night into Tuesday.
Must stay tuned to weather forecasts,
because with this weather front sitting in the cold air,
we could see a spell of snow
approaching...many parts of the UK, in fact,
and it won't be just settling across the hills, necessarily.
Let's have a look at that in a bit more detail.
Here it is. Monday night into Tuesday,
snow across Ireland, into Scotland,
northern England, there could be some snow into Wales as well,
and some of this will be settling.
So this is a day, early on Tuesday,
we're going to be keeping a very close eye on that
to find out, to figure out exactly how much snow will fall.
But there could be a covering in places,
so worth staying in touch with the forecast for this particular day.
And then later on Tuesday, that weather front clears away,
the skies clear and we'll get some sunshine.
So there could be a covering of snow in some areas
during the course of the day as well.
So that's Tuesday - a cold day.
And then look what happens as we head into Wednesday.
Another little waft of milder air, and where you get that clash
between the mild and the cold and the jet stream on top of that,
that's where you get the weather fronts.
So there's going to be another weather front moving across the UK,
and here it is. What a mess it looks like on Wednesday morning.
Rain and snow mixing in. You just get a sense that that snow
is lifting northwards, so most of the snow is probably going to
fall across the hills, across northern areas,
whereas in the south, 10 degrees,
that's a little bit too mild for snow.
But an unpleasant day, I think, for many of us on Wednesday.
Beyond that, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday,
it looks like cold north-westerly winds will prevail across the UK.
It's very cold out there in the Atlantic,
so that's going to bring some further wintry showers,
and some of it will be settling. Bye-bye.
