Hello. In the depths of last week's cold spell you may have

0:00:030:00:05

struggled to imagine temperatures would ever climb above freezing,

0:00:050:00:08

let alone get into double digits

0:00:080:00:11

but that is exactly what is going to happen as we head into the weekend.

0:00:110:00:15

It's going to turn increasingly mild.

0:00:150:00:18

There will be some rain at times

0:00:180:00:19

and the snow is not completely done with us yet.

0:00:190:00:23

This weather system running across southern

0:00:230:00:25

and central areas through the first part of Thursday is likely to

0:00:250:00:28

provide some snow for the hills of Wales, the north Midlands,

0:00:280:00:31

northern England, but maybe even to lower levels for a time.

0:00:310:00:34

It will be largely rain elsewhere

0:00:340:00:36

and in any case it will have cleared to the east by lunch time.

0:00:360:00:39

So the afternoon, largely dry with spells of sunshine.

0:00:390:00:42

Just a scattering of showers drifting in from the west

0:00:420:00:44

and those temperatures already in double digits in the south.

0:00:440:00:47

10 degrees there in London.

0:00:470:00:49

As we look ahead to Friday we'll see a lot of dry weather.

0:00:490:00:52

Spells of sunshine after any early mist patches have cleared.

0:00:520:00:55

Still showers across Scotland, wintry over high ground.

0:00:550:00:58

And then we look to the south, this rain pushing across the

0:00:580:01:01

Channel Islands into the far south-west by the

0:01:010:01:04

end of Friday afternoon.

0:01:040:01:06

That will be a big feature of our weather for the start

0:01:060:01:09

of the weekend. This frontal system pushing northwards during Friday

0:01:090:01:12

night into Saturday, taking rain with it.

0:01:120:01:14

Low pressure taking up residence down here to the south-west

0:01:140:01:18

but the position of this low is crucial

0:01:180:01:20

because it will start to drag up some pretty mild air from the south.

0:01:200:01:25

Many of us seeing a notable lift in temperatures

0:01:250:01:27

but with that we'll see these outbreaks of rain splashing

0:01:270:01:30

northwards across England, Wales, Northern Ireland, southern Scotland.

0:01:300:01:33

Some of the rain could be heavy.

0:01:330:01:34

Perhaps turning to snow over higher ground in the north for a time.

0:01:340:01:38

But look at these afternoon highs.

0:01:380:01:40

Down towards the south 12, 13, maybe 14.

0:01:400:01:43

A long time since we've seen temperatures that high.

0:01:430:01:47

Into Sunday this band of wet weather will be sliding

0:01:470:01:49

northwards across Scotland.

0:01:490:01:51

Even here most of it rain by this stage as that mild air

0:01:510:01:54

continues to progress northwards.

0:01:540:01:56

Further south pretty murky, a lot of cloud, some mist and fog around.

0:01:560:02:00

Some rain perhaps into the south-east and many places

0:02:000:02:03

into double digits, even further north we're looking at highs of 8

0:02:030:02:06

in Edinburgh.

0:02:060:02:08

Low pressure still the dominant feature as we move

0:02:080:02:10

out of Sunday into the start of the new working week.

0:02:100:02:13

A lot of uncertainty about where these individual weather

0:02:130:02:16

systems will be at this stage.

0:02:160:02:18

There will be some spells of rain at times.

0:02:180:02:20

Quite a lot of cloud I suspect

0:02:200:02:22

but some brighter glimpses coming through here and there

0:02:220:02:26

and those temperatures not quite as high as over the weekend in

0:02:260:02:29

the south but 11-12, 7 there across northern and eastern Scotland.

0:02:290:02:34

What's going on? It's all down to the jet stream.

0:02:340:02:37

During next week it will remain largely to the south of the UK but

0:02:370:02:42

notice this little dip that develops towards the end of the week.

0:02:420:02:46

That could spin up a fairly deep area of low pressure,

0:02:460:02:50

giving the potential for some fairly windy weather.

0:02:500:02:52

Certainly the potential for some wet weather.

0:02:520:02:54

And as that low drifts its way further east that could open

0:02:540:02:59

the floodgates to some slightly colder air

0:02:590:03:02

returning from the north by the end of the week.

0:03:020:03:04

It won't be anything like as cold as it was last week

0:03:040:03:07

but a different feel after those double digits over the weekend.

0:03:070:03:11

So next week, rain at times, equally some sunny spells too.

0:03:110:03:16

It will at times be windy.

0:03:160:03:18

Just the chance that it could turn colder later

0:03:180:03:21

but nothing like as cold as it was last week and before we get

0:03:210:03:25

there we will get to see some pretty high temperatures.
