Hello there, it's obviously not as cold as it was last week.

0:00:030:00:05

We've seen milder air pushing northwards to many

0:00:050:00:07

parts of the country

0:00:070:00:08

and with some sunshine on Monday it felt much more like spring.

0:00:080:00:12

But quite a contrast still across the UK, further north,

0:00:120:00:15

particularly in Scotland, it's still a very wintry scene.

0:00:150:00:18

We had some more snow on Monday

0:00:180:00:19

and we've got some more snow falling on Tuesday,

0:00:190:00:22

mainly over the hills.

0:00:220:00:24

The wetter weather continues to push its way northwards to bring

0:00:240:00:26

that wintry mix across Scotland.

0:00:260:00:28

Southern Scotland becomes drier, Northern Ireland

0:00:280:00:31

and northern England brighter.

0:00:310:00:33

A little sunshine after a dull and misty start for England and Wales.

0:00:330:00:36

Could trigger one or two showers 12 in the south and 3 or 4 at best

0:00:360:00:41

across northern Scotland so quite a contrast across the UK.

0:00:410:00:45

We've still got low pressure in charge. Everything very slow moving.

0:00:450:00:49

That weather system across the north-western

0:00:490:00:51

parts of Scotland continuing to bring a mixture of rain

0:00:510:00:54

and snow to the Highlands and Islands.

0:00:540:00:57

Away from here to the south we have some stronger

0:00:570:01:00

winds across southern parts of England and Wales.

0:01:000:01:02

That should help to break up the cloud a little bit more.

0:01:020:01:05

But there will also be quite a few showers

0:01:050:01:06

and some of these could be on the heavy side,

0:01:060:01:09

temperatures 6-9 degrees.

0:01:090:01:11

Not great for this time of the year.

0:01:110:01:13

Better than it was last week, of course.

0:01:130:01:15

Those temperatures aren't going to change much on Thursday.

0:01:150:01:18

Some rain not far away running through the English Channel.

0:01:180:01:21

That could move a little further north into southern counties.

0:01:210:01:23

Otherwise, we've got some showers.

0:01:230:01:25

That wintry mix still towards the far

0:01:250:01:27

north-west of Scotland by this stage.

0:01:270:01:30

Low pressure is going to be a feature of our weather over

0:01:300:01:33

the week ahead. That one sitting to the north-west of Scotland keeping

0:01:330:01:36

that wintry mix going.

0:01:360:01:37

There's another big one coming in from the Atlantic

0:01:370:01:40

and that will be steering toward the UK.

0:01:400:01:42

In between a little ridge of high pressure.

0:01:420:01:44

So more places will be dry on Friday

0:01:440:01:47

with more sunshine after a chilly start

0:01:470:01:49

and maybe a touch of frost.

0:01:490:01:50

A few wintry showers in northern Scotland.

0:01:500:01:52

Later in the day we see the weather system bringing the wet

0:01:520:01:55

weather into the far south-west.

0:01:550:01:57

Temperatures could get as high as 10 or 11 in the south.

0:01:570:02:00

But it's in the south that we're going to find these active

0:02:000:02:03

weather fronts driven by that big area of low pressure.

0:02:030:02:06

We're going to find some heavy rain developing for the start

0:02:060:02:09

of the weekend.

0:02:090:02:10

But those weather systems are bringing in some mild air

0:02:100:02:13

but they're moving northwards

0:02:130:02:15

into much colder air we're going to keep through the week ahead.

0:02:150:02:18

Whilst we've got some heavy rain across southern parts of the UK,

0:02:180:02:22

as it moves northwards we may find that rain turning to snow

0:02:220:02:26

particularly over the hills of northern England, north Wales

0:02:260:02:28

and into Northern Ireland.

0:02:280:02:30

At this stage Scotland is going to be dry throughout

0:02:300:02:33

much of the day, however everything moving its way northwards

0:02:330:02:37

means we will get a mixture of rain and snow into Scotland overnight

0:02:370:02:42

and into Sunday morning.

0:02:420:02:43

And then the main driving area of low pressure

0:02:430:02:46

drifts slowly across the UK, keeping the wet weather going.

0:02:460:02:49

As that pulls away

0:02:490:02:51

so we draw down this more north to north-westerly airflow.

0:02:510:02:54

Never a particularly warm direction.

0:02:540:02:57

There are more weather systems out in the mid-Atlantic

0:02:570:02:59

and if we look at the jet stream later on we're going to find

0:02:590:03:03

it in this sort of position picking up areas of low pressure

0:03:030:03:06

and steering them towards the UK.

0:03:060:03:08

But that jet stream is still a long way south.

0:03:080:03:11

Essentially it means in the outlook we're going to stay unsettled.

0:03:110:03:15

Areas of low pressure still, wind and rain.

0:03:150:03:18

There's still the risk of snow, mind you,

0:03:180:03:19

because we never get out of that colder air with the

0:03:190:03:23

jet stream that far south the milder air is more in the near continent.
