Hello there. After the snow and ice of the last week,

0:00:020:00:05

I think you could be forgiven

0:00:050:00:06

for wanting something a little bit quieter

0:00:060:00:09

and a little bit milder through the days ahead.

0:00:090:00:11

Well, the weekend will go some distance towards giving us that

0:00:110:00:15

because it will turn slowly and I do mean slowly -

0:00:150:00:17

a little less cold, some wintry showers, too,

0:00:170:00:20

these showers coming as a mixture of rain, sleet and snow.

0:00:200:00:23

So during Saturday, then, a band of cloud and some very light

0:00:230:00:26

and patchy snow drifting northwards across northern England,

0:00:260:00:29

Northern Ireland, into southern Scotland,

0:00:290:00:31

still some snow showers across north-east Scotland.

0:00:310:00:34

More likely rain across southern areas

0:00:340:00:36

as this area of showery weather pushes its way in

0:00:360:00:39

because it will be that bit milder here -

0:00:390:00:41

seven degrees in Plymouth.

0:00:410:00:42

Still, though, you'll notice a rather chilly feel further north.

0:00:420:00:46

Now, as we move out of Saturday into Sunday,

0:00:460:00:48

low pressure is driving the weather.

0:00:480:00:50

The low sitting down here to the south-west -

0:00:500:00:52

that means we're going to bring in southerly winds

0:00:520:00:55

across the country so that will allow us

0:00:550:00:57

to tap into some slightly less cold air.

0:00:570:01:00

No more Beast from the East

0:01:000:01:02

will be bringing these winds up from the south.

0:01:020:01:05

Not especially warm, by any means

0:01:050:01:08

and we could well start Sunday

0:01:080:01:09

as well with some mist and fog patches,

0:01:090:01:11

but at least there'll be some spells of sunshine through the day.

0:01:110:01:14

This area of rain, sleet and hill snow

0:01:140:01:16

drifting across northern England into southern Scotland,

0:01:160:01:19

some showery rain into the south

0:01:190:01:21

and those temperatures recovering a little bit -

0:01:210:01:23

two degrees in Aberdeen,

0:01:230:01:24

four degrees there in Birmingham

0:01:240:01:26

and into Monday, that trend continues.

0:01:260:01:28

We push this area of rain, sleet and hill snow northwards

0:01:280:01:31

across Scotland, some sunny spells developing elsewhere.

0:01:310:01:34

Still the potential for some showery rain to push in

0:01:340:01:36

towards the south-west, but have a look at Monday's temperatures.

0:01:360:01:39

Double digits down towards the south, 10, 11 degrees

0:01:390:01:42

and even further north, some of that slightly less cold air

0:01:420:01:46

will begin to make its presence felt.

0:01:460:01:48

Now, out of Monday into Tuesday, low pressure still with us,

0:01:480:01:51

still to the south-west.

0:01:510:01:53

We still keep this broadly southerly flow across the country.

0:01:530:01:57

We'll see showery rain pushing its way northwards.

0:01:570:01:59

Still potentially some snow over high ground in the north,

0:01:590:02:02

still cold enough for that over the hills,

0:02:020:02:04

but at low levels, it will mostly be rain and sleet.

0:02:040:02:07

Some spells of sunshine in between and those temperatures

0:02:070:02:10

up to five degrees there in Aberdeen

0:02:100:02:12

and 11 in London.

0:02:120:02:14

Wednesday, similar on the face of it.

0:02:140:02:16

Still some areas of rain, sleet and hill snow drifting across the map.

0:02:160:02:19

Very difficult to predict at this range

0:02:190:02:21

exactly where the wet weather will be at any given time on Wednesday

0:02:210:02:24

and still some sunny breaks in the cloud at times.

0:02:240:02:28

Those temperatures again slightly less cold -

0:02:280:02:30

6 in Edinburgh,

0:02:300:02:32

7 there in Birmingham.

0:02:320:02:34

So, what's going on with next week's weather?

0:02:340:02:37

Well, it is, as so often, all to do with the jet stream,

0:02:370:02:39

which will basically be still a very long way south from the UK.

0:02:390:02:44

That leaves us in some relatively cold air,

0:02:440:02:47

but we're bringing the air in for more of a south

0:02:470:02:49

or south-westerly direction so it won't be as cold as it has been.

0:02:490:02:53

However, as we get towards the end of the week,

0:02:530:02:57

we push this area of low pressure eastwards.

0:02:570:02:59

That'll take some outbreaks of rain with it

0:02:590:03:01

and on the back edge of that low,

0:03:010:03:03

once the low ends up to the east of the British Isles,

0:03:030:03:05

well, that will allow the winds to switch round

0:03:050:03:07

to something more of a northerly.

0:03:070:03:09

So that is likely to bring something a little colder

0:03:090:03:11

in our direction by the time we get into next weekend,

0:03:110:03:14

but not as cold as it has been

0:03:140:03:15

and that's the big theme next week -

0:03:150:03:17

not as cold as it has been.

0:03:170:03:19

Some rain at times,

0:03:190:03:20

still some snow over the hills,

0:03:200:03:21

perhaps turning a little colder by the weekend,

0:03:210:03:24

but hopefully nothing as disruptive

0:03:240:03:26

as we've had to contend with through the last week.
