Hello. Just when you thought it was safe to go out,

0:00:020:00:04

the beast may be back.

0:00:040:00:06

I'm going to take you back to last weekend where the temperature

0:00:060:00:09

reached just over 15 degrees and it felt more like spring had sprung.

0:00:090:00:15

This weekend, move things forward,

0:00:150:00:17

the maximum temperature may be five degrees.

0:00:170:00:20

It will feel a bit more like winter.

0:00:200:00:22

At the moment, though,

0:00:220:00:24

we are seeing the back of the rain that we had on Monday.

0:00:240:00:26

That area of low pressure pulling away.

0:00:260:00:28

A little bump of high-pressure before we get some weather fronts

0:00:280:00:31

later in the week.

0:00:310:00:33

So Tuesday may well be the best day of the week.

0:00:330:00:35

Light winds, some sunshine,

0:00:350:00:36

particularly across Northern Ireland,

0:00:360:00:38

developing in Western Scotland, Wales, the western side of England.

0:00:380:00:41

There's going to be more cloud further east.

0:00:410:00:43

You may get a shower out of it.

0:00:430:00:45

But most places will be dry and even eastern areas,

0:00:450:00:47

will brighten up with a little sunshine,

0:00:470:00:50

temperatures perhaps a shade higher than they were on Monday.

0:00:500:00:53

It will feel pleasant in those light winds and sunshine.

0:00:530:00:56

Looming out to the west, though, we have an area of low pressure.

0:00:560:00:59

It is a big one. Spinning around it,

0:00:590:01:01

a couple of weather fronts that will bring some bands of rain.

0:01:010:01:04

Some uncertainty as to the position of these rain bands

0:01:040:01:07

and how quickly they will drive up from the south-west.

0:01:070:01:10

But many western areas will see some rain at times

0:01:100:01:13

and here around the coast,

0:01:130:01:15

we will have gale-force winds.

0:01:150:01:17

It will be a windy day on Wednesday

0:01:170:01:19

but for many central and eastern areas, probably dry.

0:01:190:01:21

Get some sunshine in the south-east,

0:01:210:01:23

15 degrees.

0:01:230:01:25

That is going to be the warmest day of this week.

0:01:250:01:28

That area of low pressure is still there.

0:01:280:01:30

These weather fronts slowly pushing their way northwards

0:01:300:01:33

and eastwards across the UK

0:01:330:01:34

away from the south-west,

0:01:340:01:35

perhaps away from Northern Ireland

0:01:350:01:37

into Scotland, across Wales,

0:01:370:01:39

towards the south-east of England

0:01:390:01:40

maybe later in the day.

0:01:400:01:41

Again, some uncertainty as to how far this rain is going to get

0:01:410:01:45

because everything is moving quite slowly.

0:01:450:01:47

Further north and east, it may well be dry,

0:01:470:01:50

temperatures perhaps 10, 11 degrees

0:01:500:01:52

at the very best.

0:01:520:01:54

But the signs are that it's Starting to get a bit colder.

0:01:540:01:56

Whilst we've got that low pressure

0:01:560:01:58

and we've got that weather front which sort of stops

0:01:580:02:00

and starts to come back again, it's running into high-pressure

0:02:000:02:03

that is going to be a dominant feature as we head into the outlook.

0:02:030:02:06

So we have got some wetter weather maybe coming back into

0:02:060:02:08

Northern Ireland, southern parts

0:02:080:02:10

of England, Wales, the Midlands.

0:02:100:02:11

There'll be some heavy showers.

0:02:110:02:13

At least there those temperatures won't be too bad.

0:02:130:02:15

Look what happens to the north of that rain belt.

0:02:150:02:17

We're getting into some colder air, temperatures dropping

0:02:170:02:20

and we are getting some snow falling, especially across Scotland.

0:02:200:02:24

Then that colder air sweeps down across the whole of the country

0:02:240:02:27

and we will see some snow showers.

0:02:270:02:29

More especially on the eastern side of the UK and that is

0:02:290:02:33

because we will have an easterly wind developing across-the-board.

0:02:330:02:36

So temperatures will be significantly lower

0:02:360:02:38

at the start of the weekend.

0:02:380:02:41

Snow showers Saturday, we've got

0:02:410:02:42

an area of low pressure potentially close to the south on Sunday.

0:02:420:02:46

That could bring some more organised, heavier snowfall.

0:02:460:02:49

That looks less likely.

0:02:490:02:51

What seems more likely is that high-pressure will build

0:02:510:02:53

in one way or another

0:02:530:02:54

and it may well actually turn a little bit drier as we head

0:02:540:02:57

into the beginning of next week,

0:02:570:02:59

with more of a northerly wind.

0:02:590:03:00

Then if we look at the upper-level winds,

0:03:000:03:03

which is the jet stream, of course,

0:03:030:03:05

it has been a long way south,

0:03:050:03:06

but towards the middle of next week,

0:03:060:03:07

we start to the jet stream

0:03:070:03:09

moving a bit further north,

0:03:090:03:10

strengthening across the Atlantic.

0:03:100:03:13

But for a while, in the outlook it is going to be cold.

0:03:130:03:15

Those easterly winds, there maybe northerly winds,

0:03:150:03:17

there will be some snow showers around

0:03:170:03:19

and then as the jet stream changes position,

0:03:190:03:21

we get more of this Atlantic air coming in,

0:03:210:03:24

maybe bringing some milder conditions as well.

0:03:240:03:26

The Beast from the East? More the mini beast.
