We may well have tamed last week's Beast from the East
but this week looks likely to be a battle of the seasons.
If you get the cloud breaks and some sunshine it will feel pleasant,
dare I say it, almost spring-like. However,
if you're sat under the cold air, which it has been for the last
couple of days across Scotland, you're still likely to see
the potential for some snow.
During Wednesday it looks likely to be rain
and sleet across the northern isles and just a scattering
of showers across the north and west, a few into south-west England.
And also a little bit of nuisance rain across the extreme south-east.
Elsewhere, some sunny spells and highs likely of 6-10.
A bit of a difference to the feel of things from a week or so ago.
This area of low pressure not going very far very fast.
Keeps some showers up into the north-west.
Elsewhere the isobars open up. A quiet start to Thursday.
Maybe a touch of frost as well for one or two of us
but there will be a good deal of dry weather in the story on Thursday.
Just a scattering of showers.
Perhaps a few showers across the south-east and one or
two into the north which could turn wintry with any elevation.
Generally speaking a quiet story.
Still not particularly warm in Scotland, 6 or 7,
highs of 10 in the south-east corner.
As we move into Friday there's potential for a spell
of more persistent rain to move in from the south-west affecting
the south coast.
Still under the influence of low pressure into the north.
Still the risk of a few wintry showers wrapping around that
low in the far north-west of Scotland.
Highs of 6-10.
As we move into Saturday it looks likely we will
see this area of low pressure moving in from the south-west.
Winds swing round to a south-westerly
and that's going to drive in some milder air.
The question is as it bumps into the cold air that's still
sitting across the north we could see a spell of snow.
There will be a great deal of uncertainty,
just the timing of this and where it's likely to be sitting but
maybe across the northern half of the country
there could be some snow.
Rain behind it as the milder air tucks in. 13 the high on Saturday.
As that front moves through into Sunday again
we could see more significant snow into Scotland
but we're not too concerned about it because that milder air will
follow in behind so if you get some snow it should thaw pretty quickly
as the milder southerly winds take over.
Sunday it looks likely we will see a spell of snow into central
and northern Scotland.
Cloudier conditions behind but certainly milder with that
In fact we'll see double digits for many, maybe up as high as 13.
Not for long though, keep an eye on that area of
low pressure into Scotland.
It will revert back, move its way across the country and the winds
revert back to a north-westerly so again a colder source.
Not the extreme cold we had last week
but potentially a colder source of weather.
As that low pressure moves through we could see some
snow into the north.
It turns pretty unsettled from the Atlantic with milder air
and a low pressure moving in from the south.
The question is will we see any snow where it bumps into that colder air.
It is a bit messy, the weather for the week ahead, but the longer
term looks likely to stay unsettled, some spells of wind and rain.
We need to keep a close eye on the leading edge
up into Scotland of whether we will see some snow.
More details from us later in the week.
