Hello. I can't offer you spring -
I can't even really offer you average temperatures
for this time of year.
Figures will still be slightly below in the week ahead,
but what I can tell you is that the weather
will not be as severe as the week just gone.
Gradually, the temperature's creeping up,
the snow is starting to thaw,
but it's still going to stay quite unsettled.
That could add complications, though.
There'll be rain moving across England and Wales
in the form of some pretty potent showers on Sunday.
Those could result in some quite rapid thawing
and some issues with flooding.
Snow becoming increasingly confined to higher ground
across northern England and Northern Ireland.
Still in the cold air, however,
Scotland picking up wintry showers,
especially in the north and east.
The easterly wind keeping things feeling pretty raw here.
Further south, we're looking at highs of 8 or 9.
We're still fetching air into the north of the UK from the east,
but now we're circulating it round an area of low pressure,
as opposed to blasting it round that high
that brought us the Beast from the East,
and what that circulating does is feed the air
across the milder waters of the Atlantic, modifying it slightly
so it's just not as cold as the cold air we had last week -
hence the pale blues rather than those rather intenser colours.
From Monday, still cold enough in the north, though,
for us to see more snow across Scotland.
To the south-west, chance of some heavy, thundery rain.
Elsewhere, a relatively quiet story, hopefully with some brightness.
Look out, though, for some early patches of morning mist and fog.
Temperatures up to 10 degrees in London and Norwich.
Here's Tuesday - again, the continued threat of some snowfall
across northern Scotland -
the wintry weather is not over, here, sadly.
Some strong winds in the north, as well.
Further south, and it's showers for England and Wales,
and for Northern Ireland,
and some of those could turn out to be quite potent,
but there should be some sunshine in between times, as well,
and temperatures are 7 to 10 -
very much different to the week just gone.
Low-pressure still with us overnight, Tuesday into Wednesday.
It looks like the snow to the far north
could be quite a persistent feature for Scotland
through into the middle part of the week.
So, still the chance for some disruption here,
particular to the far north of the country,
where we'll have strong winds, as well.
Elsewhere, the low becoming quite flabby.
There could be some slow-moving showers around,
some of them could be quite intense -
but, in some brightness,
I think it will feel, well, so different
to the way it's felt the last week,
with temperatures, as I said, in double figures.
Bit more unsettled come Thursday,
risk of some heavy rain into the south and east,
and some showers coming in from the west -
and notice the white showing its hand once again.
Looks like they could turn wintry,
particularly on higher ground.
The reason we're not entirely out of the woods, of course,
is that we're still sitting in a comparatively colder air.
Mild air is a good way to the south of us in Europe at the moment.
We sit to the north of the jet stream,
and until that jet stream buckles north,
we're not going to bring any of the milder air our way.
Later on in the period, though,
it does look like the jet will move to the north -
end of next week, on into next weekend,
briefly bringing some average temperatures,
or if not a little above, to the far south of the British Isles -
but then the jet starts to push away eastwards again,
and the cold air will dig down back behind it,
and the jet also buckles,
and that will mean a big area of low pressure
sitting across the British Isles.
So, next weekend, a very wet and windy period,
particularly, I think, the chance, again,
of something a little bit wintry
digging further south behind the low, as well -
but I must stress, nothing near as severe
or as extensive as the weather we've had of late.
So, further ahead, not as cold,
it stays unsettled,
but potentially some very wet and windy weather
affecting many parts of the British Isles
as we look on into next weekend.
