Hello there, it's obviously not as cold as it was last week.
We've seen milder air pushing northwards to many
parts of the country
and with some sunshine on Monday it felt much more like spring.
But quite a contrast still across the UK, further north,
particularly in Scotland, it's still a very wintry scene.
We had some more snow on Monday
and we've got some more snow falling on Tuesday,
mainly over the hills.
The wetter weather continues to push its way northwards to bring
that wintry mix across Scotland.
Southern Scotland becomes drier, Northern Ireland
and northern England brighter.
A little sunshine after a dull and misty start for England and Wales.
Could trigger one or two showers 12 in the south and 3 or 4 at best
across northern Scotland so quite a contrast across the UK.
We've still got low pressure in charge. Everything very slow moving.
That weather system across the north-western
parts of Scotland continuing to bring a mixture of rain
and snow to the Highlands and Islands.
Away from here to the south we have some stronger
winds across southern parts of England and Wales.
That should help to break up the cloud a little bit more.
But there will also be quite a few showers
and some of these could be on the heavy side,
temperatures 6-9 degrees.
Not great for this time of the year.
Better than it was last week, of course.
Those temperatures aren't going to change much on Thursday.
Some rain not far away running through the English Channel.
That could move a little further north into southern counties.
Otherwise, we've got some showers.
That wintry mix still towards the far
north-west of Scotland by this stage.
Low pressure is going to be a feature of our weather over
the week ahead. That one sitting to the north-west of Scotland keeping
that wintry mix going.
There's another big one coming in from the Atlantic
and that will be steering toward the UK.
In between a little ridge of high pressure.
So more places will be dry on Friday
with more sunshine after a chilly start
and maybe a touch of frost.
A few wintry showers in northern Scotland.
Later in the day we see the weather system bringing the wet
weather into the far south-west.
Temperatures could get as high as 10 or 11 in the south.
But it's in the south that we're going to find these active
weather fronts driven by that big area of low pressure.
We're going to find some heavy rain developing for the start
of the weekend.
But those weather systems are bringing in some mild air
but they're moving northwards
into much colder air we're going to keep through the week ahead.
Whilst we've got some heavy rain across southern parts of the UK,
as it moves northwards we may find that rain turning to snow
particularly over the hills of northern England, north Wales
and into Northern Ireland.
At this stage Scotland is going to be dry throughout
much of the day, however everything moving its way northwards
means we will get a mixture of rain and snow into Scotland overnight
and into Sunday morning.
And then the main driving area of low pressure
drifts slowly across the UK, keeping the wet weather going.
As that pulls away
so we draw down this more north to north-westerly airflow.
Never a particularly warm direction.
There are more weather systems out in the mid-Atlantic
and if we look at the jet stream later on we're going to find
it in this sort of position picking up areas of low pressure
and steering them towards the UK.
But that jet stream is still a long way south.
Essentially it means in the outlook we're going to stay unsettled.
Areas of low pressure still, wind and rain.
There's still the risk of snow, mind you,
because we never get out of that colder air with the
jet stream that far south the milder air is more in the near continent.
