Hello. I can't offer you spring -

0:00:020:00:03

I can't even really offer you average temperatures

0:00:030:00:06

for this time of year.

0:00:060:00:07

Figures will still be slightly below in the week ahead,

0:00:070:00:10

but what I can tell you is that the weather

0:00:100:00:12

will not be as severe as the week just gone.

0:00:120:00:15

Gradually, the temperature's creeping up,

0:00:150:00:17

the snow is starting to thaw,

0:00:170:00:19

but it's still going to stay quite unsettled.

0:00:190:00:21

That could add complications, though.

0:00:210:00:23

There'll be rain moving across England and Wales

0:00:230:00:25

in the form of some pretty potent showers on Sunday.

0:00:250:00:28

Those could result in some quite rapid thawing

0:00:280:00:30

and some issues with flooding.

0:00:300:00:31

Snow becoming increasingly confined to higher ground

0:00:310:00:33

across northern England and Northern Ireland.

0:00:330:00:35

Still in the cold air, however,

0:00:350:00:37

Scotland picking up wintry showers,

0:00:370:00:39

especially in the north and east.

0:00:390:00:40

The easterly wind keeping things feeling pretty raw here.

0:00:400:00:43

Further south, we're looking at highs of 8 or 9.

0:00:430:00:46

We're still fetching air into the north of the UK from the east,

0:00:460:00:49

but now we're circulating it round an area of low pressure,

0:00:490:00:53

as opposed to blasting it round that high

0:00:530:00:54

that brought us the Beast from the East,

0:00:540:00:56

and what that circulating does is feed the air

0:00:560:00:58

across the milder waters of the Atlantic, modifying it slightly

0:00:580:01:01

so it's just not as cold as the cold air we had last week -

0:01:010:01:05

hence the pale blues rather than those rather intenser colours.

0:01:050:01:08

From Monday, still cold enough in the north, though,

0:01:080:01:10

for us to see more snow across Scotland.

0:01:100:01:13

To the south-west, chance of some heavy, thundery rain.

0:01:130:01:16

Elsewhere, a relatively quiet story, hopefully with some brightness.

0:01:160:01:19

Look out, though, for some early patches of morning mist and fog.

0:01:190:01:23

Temperatures up to 10 degrees in London and Norwich.

0:01:230:01:26

Here's Tuesday - again, the continued threat of some snowfall

0:01:260:01:29

across northern Scotland -

0:01:290:01:30

the wintry weather is not over, here, sadly.

0:01:300:01:32

Some strong winds in the north, as well.

0:01:320:01:34

Further south, and it's showers for England and Wales,

0:01:340:01:37

and for Northern Ireland,

0:01:370:01:38

and some of those could turn out to be quite potent,

0:01:380:01:40

but there should be some sunshine in between times, as well,

0:01:400:01:43

and temperatures are 7 to 10 -

0:01:430:01:45

very much different to the week just gone.

0:01:450:01:47

Low-pressure still with us overnight, Tuesday into Wednesday.

0:01:470:01:50

It looks like the snow to the far north

0:01:500:01:52

could be quite a persistent feature for Scotland

0:01:520:01:55

through into the middle part of the week.

0:01:550:01:57

So, still the chance for some disruption here,

0:01:570:01:59

particular to the far north of the country,

0:01:590:02:02

where we'll have strong winds, as well.

0:02:020:02:03

Elsewhere, the low becoming quite flabby.

0:02:030:02:05

There could be some slow-moving showers around,

0:02:050:02:08

some of them could be quite intense -

0:02:080:02:10

but, in some brightness,

0:02:100:02:11

I think it will feel, well, so different

0:02:110:02:13

to the way it's felt the last week,

0:02:130:02:15

with temperatures, as I said, in double figures.

0:02:150:02:17

Bit more unsettled come Thursday,

0:02:170:02:18

risk of some heavy rain into the south and east,

0:02:180:02:20

and some showers coming in from the west -

0:02:200:02:22

and notice the white showing its hand once again.

0:02:220:02:25

Looks like they could turn wintry,

0:02:250:02:27

particularly on higher ground.

0:02:270:02:29

The reason we're not entirely out of the woods, of course,

0:02:290:02:31

is that we're still sitting in a comparatively colder air.

0:02:310:02:34

Mild air is a good way to the south of us in Europe at the moment.

0:02:340:02:38

We sit to the north of the jet stream,

0:02:380:02:41

and until that jet stream buckles north,

0:02:410:02:43

we're not going to bring any of the milder air our way.

0:02:430:02:45

Later on in the period, though,

0:02:450:02:47

it does look like the jet will move to the north -

0:02:470:02:49

end of next week, on into next weekend,

0:02:490:02:50

briefly bringing some average temperatures,

0:02:500:02:52

or if not a little above, to the far south of the British Isles -

0:02:520:02:55

but then the jet starts to push away eastwards again,

0:02:550:02:58

and the cold air will dig down back behind it,

0:02:580:03:00

and the jet also buckles,

0:03:000:03:01

and that will mean a big area of low pressure

0:03:010:03:03

sitting across the British Isles.

0:03:030:03:05

So, next weekend, a very wet and windy period,

0:03:050:03:07

particularly, I think, the chance, again,

0:03:070:03:09

of something a little bit wintry

0:03:090:03:10

digging further south behind the low, as well -

0:03:100:03:13

but I must stress, nothing near as severe

0:03:130:03:15

or as extensive as the weather we've had of late.

0:03:150:03:17

So, further ahead, not as cold,

0:03:170:03:19

it stays unsettled,

0:03:190:03:20

but potentially some very wet and windy weather

0:03:200:03:22

affecting many parts of the British Isles

0:03:220:03:25

as we look on into next weekend.
