Hello. Mild and unsettled pretty much covers it for the weekend.

0:00:020:00:05

How long can that last through our 10-day forecast?

0:00:050:00:08

Well, I'll tell you in just a moment.

0:00:080:00:09

For the time being,

0:00:090:00:11

let's concentrate on the here and now

0:00:110:00:13

because with low pressure out to the west,

0:00:130:00:15

we're drawing southerly winds across the British Isles,

0:00:150:00:18

introducing some really mild air for the weekend.

0:00:180:00:21

Temperatures in parts of the south getting up to 15, maybe 16 degrees,

0:00:210:00:26

but with that we will see

0:00:260:00:27

some outbreaks of rain at times.

0:00:270:00:30

So here's how Saturday pans out.

0:00:300:00:31

Outbreaks of rain moving across Wales, the Midlands,

0:00:310:00:34

northern England, Northern Ireland

0:00:340:00:35

and up into Scotland where we could see some snow over high ground.

0:00:350:00:39

But much of what falls will be rain

0:00:390:00:41

because things will become increasingly mild from the south.

0:00:410:00:44

Where we get breaks in the cloud,

0:00:440:00:46

that's where we could get

0:00:460:00:48

to 14, 15, maybe 16 degrees.

0:00:480:00:50

Always that bit colder

0:00:500:00:51

further north across Scotland.

0:00:510:00:53

But as we move into Sunday and this area of low pressure

0:00:530:00:56

continues to spin around to the west,

0:00:560:00:59

we'll continue to draw southerly winds in across the country.

0:00:590:01:01

So even in Scotland we can expect many places to see

0:01:010:01:04

highs in double digits

0:01:040:01:06

on Sunday afternoon.

0:01:060:01:07

There could be a lot of mist and fog on Sunday morning.

0:01:070:01:10

That should clear away,

0:01:100:01:11

then a decent amount of dry weather, spells of sunshine.

0:01:110:01:14

Some hefty showers across southern and western areas

0:01:140:01:17

of England, Wales, also into Northern Ireland.

0:01:170:01:19

Some of these could contain the odd rumble of thunder.

0:01:190:01:21

13 degrees in London,

0:01:210:01:23

but even in Aberdeen we're looking at highs of 11 degrees.

0:01:230:01:26

On Monday there will be various areas of wet weather

0:01:260:01:29

swarming around close to the UK.

0:01:290:01:32

But in-between, some decent dry conditions for many of us.

0:01:320:01:35

A lot of cloud around.

0:01:350:01:36

Best chance of any breaks in that cloud, any sunny spells,

0:01:360:01:40

in western areas.

0:01:400:01:41

Could be the odd shower here.

0:01:410:01:43

Those temperatures may be down a bit,

0:01:430:01:45

but still fairly respectable for the time of year.

0:01:450:01:48

It looks on the chart here like

0:01:480:01:49

low pressure will remain in charge into Tuesday.

0:01:490:01:52

But look at this bump in the isobars.

0:01:520:01:55

That's a little transient ridge of high pressure.

0:01:550:01:57

Tuesday looks like a largely dry day for many.

0:01:570:02:00

Always more cloud, we suspect,

0:02:000:02:02

across the eastern half of the country,

0:02:020:02:04

maybe the odd shower. Best chance of sunshine out west.

0:02:040:02:06

And those temperatures again doing quite well.

0:02:060:02:09

10 in Edinburgh, 11 degrees in Cardiff.

0:02:090:02:12

For Wednesday, we start off

0:02:120:02:14

dry and bright in eastern areas,

0:02:140:02:16

but it looks like we'll bring

0:02:160:02:17

outbreaks of heavy rain into western areas.

0:02:170:02:19

And strengthening winds as well.

0:02:190:02:21

But this is obviously quite a few days ahead,

0:02:210:02:24

so the timing of this weather system may change.

0:02:240:02:27

Still mild, you'll notice.

0:02:270:02:28

10 to 13 degrees for many.

0:02:280:02:31

Let's look further ahead towards the end of next week.

0:02:310:02:34

The jet stream really undulating its way northwards

0:02:340:02:37

and southwards as it moves across the Atlantic.

0:02:370:02:40

Where we get these dips in the Jet stream,

0:02:400:02:42

they'll essentially trap areas of low pressure,

0:02:420:02:45

so these lows will just sit and spin

0:02:450:02:47

as we head into next weekend.

0:02:470:02:50

However, the change is we're likely to see an area

0:02:500:02:53

of high pressure trying to build down from Scandinavia.

0:02:530:02:56

And this weather set-up will give us

0:02:560:02:58

something of a split in our fortunes.

0:02:580:03:00

Because across many areas, particularly towards the south,

0:03:000:03:03

we'll continue to see a feed

0:03:030:03:04

of warm, or at least mild, south-westerly winds.

0:03:040:03:07

But around this area of high pressure,

0:03:070:03:09

Scotland may start to tap into

0:03:090:03:10

something a little bit colder.

0:03:100:03:13

So, as we go into next weekend,

0:03:130:03:14

we'll see sunny spells, heavy showers too,

0:03:140:03:17

a continuation of that unsettled theme.

0:03:170:03:19

Mild for many, but just a chance that things across Scotland

0:03:190:03:22

could turn a little bit colder.

0:03:220:03:24

That's all for me from now,

0:03:240:03:26

we'll keep you up-to-date over the next few days.
