Hello. Many of us had rain
at times during the first part of the weekend,
but for Sunday it is looking drier and brighter for some of us
but there's still a chance you can get caught in a heavy downpour. Why?
Because low pressure is close by.
Here it is, swirling to the south-west of the British Isles.
It will turn things very stormy into parts of Iberia
during Sunday, some very strong winds around and heavy rain.
For us, though, it's just showers
and fairly breezy across parts of England and Wales,
after some spots have some fog to begin the day.
This is how the day plays out.
You can see these downpours scattered about
through England and Wales.
The may merging in a few spots to give a longer spell of rain.
Much of Scotland and Northern Ireland
and indeed northern parts of England are looking dry, broken cloud
and sunshine. Still some outbreaks of rain, though, into Shetland.
A milder day in Scotland.
Finally, the milder air moves in
and temperatures into double figures just about across the board.
Going from Sunday into Monday,
this area of low pressure is still close by.
It will still be the focus, particularly into England
and Wales for either showers or some longer spells of rain
and fairly breezy with that as well.
Plenty of cloud around, just limited brightness.
A lot of cloud into Scotland.
Western parts brightening up and into Northern Ireland
probably having the best of it on Monday with some sunny spells.
A weak weather front moving in,
may just produce some thicker cloud and the odd spot of rain to
parts of north-west Scotland later in the day.
Temperatures fairly close to average for the time of year
but they have taken a bit of a dip in Scotland.
Now, as we look at the picture for Tuesday,
a little bump in the isobars a ridge of high pressure
moving in, promising something weather on Tuesday.
A fair amount of cloud around, mind you,
to begin the day through eastern parts in particular.
It could be a little bit drizzly.
There's a chance of the odd light shower popping up here and there,
but, on the whole, it's a quiet day on Tuesday.
There'll be some sunny spells around, light winds
and after temperatures may start on the chilly side,
we get up to around 9 to 11 Celsius.
That ridge of high pressure isn't lasting very long,
though, because it'll be going till Wednesday.
Low pressure is about to park itself to the south-west of the UK
once again. Ahead of that, the breeze starts to pick up.
It will try to push weather systems our way on through
the remainder of the week.
We will notice cloud, sunny spells, breezy picture
particular in the west, towards the north-west of the UK.
A better chance here on Wednesday
for seeing some spells of rain moving in once again.
Temperatures still close to average, around 9 to maybe 12 Celsius.
Thursday, very little change. That low pressure still there.
It's still quite breezy across the UK.
It's still trying to feed in weather systems.
We may just see any area of cloud
and rain try to push its way north-eastwards.
Some uncertainty about that.
Why is this area of low pressure not just going for it
and pushing some wet weather right across us?
Well, the answer, really,
is we look at the big picture for Friday into Saturday.
Here's that area of low pressure, but it's coming up against a block
in the atmosphere and that is this area of high pressure in Scandinavia
and around that, some cold air circulating, once again,
towards the UK. It's a familiar picture.
We had this not to long ago - it was called the Beast from the East.
Now, we're not saying that is coming in next weekend, but the models
are indicating that something colder may be coming in,
but there's a big question mark about how cold that will be.
There could be an issue, though, with the wind chill
as the wind starts to pick up,
but, depending on how cold it gets next weekend,
if this picture stays the same,
that brings uncertainty about wet weather and about
whether any of that wet weather will fall in the form of snow.
Things are looking very interesting next weekend and, of course,
this is the place to keep you updated.
