Hello. Many of us had rain

0:00:020:00:03

at times during the first part of the weekend,

0:00:030:00:05

but for Sunday it is looking drier and brighter for some of us

0:00:050:00:08

but there's still a chance you can get caught in a heavy downpour. Why?

0:00:080:00:11

Because low pressure is close by.

0:00:110:00:14

Here it is, swirling to the south-west of the British Isles.

0:00:140:00:16

It will turn things very stormy into parts of Iberia

0:00:160:00:19

during Sunday, some very strong winds around and heavy rain.

0:00:190:00:22

For us, though, it's just showers

0:00:220:00:24

and fairly breezy across parts of England and Wales,

0:00:240:00:27

after some spots have some fog to begin the day.

0:00:270:00:30

This is how the day plays out.

0:00:300:00:32

You can see these downpours scattered about

0:00:320:00:34

through England and Wales.

0:00:340:00:35

The may merging in a few spots to give a longer spell of rain.

0:00:350:00:38

Much of Scotland and Northern Ireland

0:00:380:00:40

and indeed northern parts of England are looking dry, broken cloud

0:00:400:00:44

and sunshine. Still some outbreaks of rain, though, into Shetland.

0:00:440:00:47

A milder day in Scotland.

0:00:470:00:49

Finally, the milder air moves in

0:00:490:00:51

and temperatures into double figures just about across the board.

0:00:510:00:54

Going from Sunday into Monday,

0:00:540:00:55

this area of low pressure is still close by.

0:00:550:00:58

It will still be the focus, particularly into England

0:00:580:01:01

and Wales for either showers or some longer spells of rain

0:01:010:01:04

and fairly breezy with that as well.

0:01:040:01:06

Plenty of cloud around, just limited brightness.

0:01:060:01:08

A lot of cloud into Scotland.

0:01:080:01:09

Western parts brightening up and into Northern Ireland

0:01:090:01:12

probably having the best of it on Monday with some sunny spells.

0:01:120:01:14

A weak weather front moving in,

0:01:140:01:16

may just produce some thicker cloud and the odd spot of rain to

0:01:160:01:19

parts of north-west Scotland later in the day.

0:01:190:01:21

Temperatures fairly close to average for the time of year

0:01:210:01:24

but they have taken a bit of a dip in Scotland.

0:01:240:01:26

Now, as we look at the picture for Tuesday,

0:01:260:01:28

a little bump in the isobars a ridge of high pressure

0:01:280:01:31

moving in, promising something weather on Tuesday.

0:01:310:01:34

A fair amount of cloud around, mind you,

0:01:340:01:35

to begin the day through eastern parts in particular.

0:01:350:01:37

It could be a little bit drizzly.

0:01:370:01:39

There's a chance of the odd light shower popping up here and there,

0:01:390:01:42

but, on the whole, it's a quiet day on Tuesday.

0:01:420:01:44

There'll be some sunny spells around, light winds

0:01:440:01:47

and after temperatures may start on the chilly side,

0:01:470:01:50

we get up to around 9 to 11 Celsius.

0:01:500:01:53

That ridge of high pressure isn't lasting very long,

0:01:530:01:56

though, because it'll be going till Wednesday.

0:01:560:01:58

Low pressure is about to park itself to the south-west of the UK

0:01:580:02:01

once again. Ahead of that, the breeze starts to pick up.

0:02:010:02:04

It will try to push weather systems our way on through

0:02:040:02:07

the remainder of the week.

0:02:070:02:08

We will notice cloud, sunny spells, breezy picture

0:02:080:02:12

particular in the west, towards the north-west of the UK.

0:02:120:02:15

A better chance here on Wednesday

0:02:150:02:16

for seeing some spells of rain moving in once again.

0:02:160:02:19

Temperatures still close to average, around 9 to maybe 12 Celsius.

0:02:190:02:23

Thursday, very little change. That low pressure still there.

0:02:230:02:25

It's still quite breezy across the UK.

0:02:250:02:27

It's still trying to feed in weather systems.

0:02:270:02:30

We may just see any area of cloud

0:02:300:02:32

and rain try to push its way north-eastwards.

0:02:320:02:34

Some uncertainty about that.

0:02:340:02:36

Why is this area of low pressure not just going for it

0:02:360:02:38

and pushing some wet weather right across us?

0:02:380:02:41

Well, the answer, really,

0:02:410:02:42

is we look at the big picture for Friday into Saturday.

0:02:420:02:45

Here's that area of low pressure, but it's coming up against a block

0:02:450:02:48

in the atmosphere and that is this area of high pressure in Scandinavia

0:02:480:02:51

and around that, some cold air circulating, once again,

0:02:510:02:54

towards the UK. It's a familiar picture.

0:02:540:02:57

We had this not to long ago - it was called the Beast from the East.

0:02:570:03:00

Now, we're not saying that is coming in next weekend, but the models

0:03:000:03:04

are indicating that something colder may be coming in,

0:03:040:03:07

but there's a big question mark about how cold that will be.

0:03:070:03:10

There could be an issue, though, with the wind chill

0:03:100:03:13

as the wind starts to pick up,

0:03:130:03:14

but, depending on how cold it gets next weekend,

0:03:140:03:16

if this picture stays the same,

0:03:160:03:18

that brings uncertainty about wet weather and about

0:03:180:03:20

whether any of that wet weather will fall in the form of snow.

0:03:200:03:24

Things are looking very interesting next weekend and, of course,

0:03:240:03:26

this is the place to keep you updated.
