Hello. Mild and unsettled pretty much covers it for the weekend.
How long can that last through our 10-day forecast?
Well, I'll tell you in just a moment.
For the time being,
let's concentrate on the here and now
because with low pressure out to the west,
we're drawing southerly winds across the British Isles,
introducing some really mild air for the weekend.
Temperatures in parts of the south getting up to 15, maybe 16 degrees,
but with that we will see
some outbreaks of rain at times.
So here's how Saturday pans out.
Outbreaks of rain moving across Wales, the Midlands,
northern England, Northern Ireland
and up into Scotland where we could see some snow over high ground.
But much of what falls will be rain
because things will become increasingly mild from the south.
Where we get breaks in the cloud,
that's where we could get
to 14, 15, maybe 16 degrees.
Always that bit colder
further north across Scotland.
But as we move into Sunday and this area of low pressure
continues to spin around to the west,
we'll continue to draw southerly winds in across the country.
So even in Scotland we can expect many places to see
highs in double digits
on Sunday afternoon.
There could be a lot of mist and fog on Sunday morning.
That should clear away,
then a decent amount of dry weather, spells of sunshine.
Some hefty showers across southern and western areas
of England, Wales, also into Northern Ireland.
Some of these could contain the odd rumble of thunder.
13 degrees in London,
but even in Aberdeen we're looking at highs of 11 degrees.
On Monday there will be various areas of wet weather
swarming around close to the UK.
But in-between, some decent dry conditions for many of us.
A lot of cloud around.
Best chance of any breaks in that cloud, any sunny spells,
in western areas.
Could be the odd shower here.
Those temperatures may be down a bit,
but still fairly respectable for the time of year.
It looks on the chart here like
low pressure will remain in charge into Tuesday.
But look at this bump in the isobars.
That's a little transient ridge of high pressure.
Tuesday looks like a largely dry day for many.
Always more cloud, we suspect,
across the eastern half of the country,
maybe the odd shower. Best chance of sunshine out west.
And those temperatures again doing quite well.
10 in Edinburgh, 11 degrees in Cardiff.
For Wednesday, we start off
dry and bright in eastern areas,
but it looks like we'll bring
outbreaks of heavy rain into western areas.
And strengthening winds as well.
But this is obviously quite a few days ahead,
so the timing of this weather system may change.
Still mild, you'll notice.
10 to 13 degrees for many.
Let's look further ahead towards the end of next week.
The jet stream really undulating its way northwards
and southwards as it moves across the Atlantic.
Where we get these dips in the Jet stream,
they'll essentially trap areas of low pressure,
so these lows will just sit and spin
as we head into next weekend.
However, the change is we're likely to see an area
of high pressure trying to build down from Scandinavia.
And this weather set-up will give us
something of a split in our fortunes.
Because across many areas, particularly towards the south,
we'll continue to see a feed
of warm, or at least mild, south-westerly winds.
But around this area of high pressure,
Scotland may start to tap into
something a little bit colder.
So, as we go into next weekend,
we'll see sunny spells, heavy showers too,
a continuation of that unsettled theme.
Mild for many, but just a chance that things across Scotland
could turn a little bit colder.
That's all for me from now,
we'll keep you up-to-date over the next few days.
