We may well have tamed last week's Beast from the East

0:00:030:00:05

but this week looks likely to be a battle of the seasons.

0:00:050:00:08

If you get the cloud breaks and some sunshine it will feel pleasant,

0:00:080:00:11

dare I say it, almost spring-like. However,

0:00:110:00:14

if you're sat under the cold air, which it has been for the last

0:00:140:00:16

couple of days across Scotland, you're still likely to see

0:00:160:00:19

the potential for some snow.

0:00:190:00:21

During Wednesday it looks likely to be rain

0:00:210:00:23

and sleet across the northern isles and just a scattering

0:00:230:00:26

of showers across the north and west, a few into south-west England.

0:00:260:00:29

And also a little bit of nuisance rain across the extreme south-east.

0:00:290:00:33

Elsewhere, some sunny spells and highs likely of 6-10.

0:00:330:00:37

A bit of a difference to the feel of things from a week or so ago.

0:00:370:00:42

This area of low pressure not going very far very fast.

0:00:420:00:46

Keeps some showers up into the north-west.

0:00:460:00:48

Elsewhere the isobars open up. A quiet start to Thursday.

0:00:480:00:52

Maybe a touch of frost as well for one or two of us

0:00:520:00:55

but there will be a good deal of dry weather in the story on Thursday.

0:00:550:00:59

Just a scattering of showers.

0:00:590:01:00

Perhaps a few showers across the south-east and one or

0:01:000:01:03

two into the north which could turn wintry with any elevation.

0:01:030:01:06

Generally speaking a quiet story.

0:01:060:01:08

Still not particularly warm in Scotland, 6 or 7,

0:01:080:01:12

highs of 10 in the south-east corner.

0:01:120:01:15

As we move into Friday there's potential for a spell

0:01:150:01:19

of more persistent rain to move in from the south-west affecting

0:01:190:01:22

the south coast.

0:01:220:01:24

Still under the influence of low pressure into the north.

0:01:240:01:26

Still the risk of a few wintry showers wrapping around that

0:01:260:01:29

low in the far north-west of Scotland.

0:01:290:01:31

Highs of 6-10.

0:01:310:01:35

As we move into Saturday it looks likely we will

0:01:350:01:38

see this area of low pressure moving in from the south-west.

0:01:380:01:41

Winds swing round to a south-westerly

0:01:410:01:42

and that's going to drive in some milder air.

0:01:420:01:45

The question is as it bumps into the cold air that's still

0:01:450:01:48

sitting across the north we could see a spell of snow.

0:01:480:01:52

There will be a great deal of uncertainty,

0:01:520:01:54

just the timing of this and where it's likely to be sitting but

0:01:540:01:57

maybe across the northern half of the country

0:01:570:01:59

there could be some snow.

0:01:590:02:01

Rain behind it as the milder air tucks in. 13 the high on Saturday.

0:02:010:02:05

As that front moves through into Sunday again

0:02:050:02:08

we could see more significant snow into Scotland

0:02:080:02:12

but we're not too concerned about it because that milder air will

0:02:120:02:15

follow in behind so if you get some snow it should thaw pretty quickly

0:02:150:02:20

as the milder southerly winds take over.

0:02:200:02:23

Sunday it looks likely we will see a spell of snow into central

0:02:230:02:26

and northern Scotland.

0:02:260:02:27

Cloudier conditions behind but certainly milder with that

0:02:270:02:31

southerly wind.

0:02:310:02:32

In fact we'll see double digits for many, maybe up as high as 13.

0:02:320:02:37

Not for long though, keep an eye on that area of

0:02:370:02:40

low pressure into Scotland.

0:02:400:02:42

It will revert back, move its way across the country and the winds

0:02:420:02:47

revert back to a north-westerly so again a colder source.

0:02:470:02:50

Not the extreme cold we had last week

0:02:500:02:53

but potentially a colder source of weather.

0:02:530:02:56

As that low pressure moves through we could see some

0:02:560:02:59

snow into the north.

0:02:590:03:01

It turns pretty unsettled from the Atlantic with milder air

0:03:010:03:06

and a low pressure moving in from the south.

0:03:060:03:08

The question is will we see any snow where it bumps into that colder air.

0:03:080:03:13

It is a bit messy, the weather for the week ahead, but the longer

0:03:130:03:17

term looks likely to stay unsettled, some spells of wind and rain.

0:03:170:03:21

We need to keep a close eye on the leading edge

0:03:210:03:24

up into Scotland of whether we will see some snow.

0:03:240:03:27

More details from us later in the week.
