Hello. Just when you thought it was safe to go out,
the beast may be back.
I'm going to take you back to last weekend where the temperature
reached just over 15 degrees and it felt more like spring had sprung.
This weekend, move things forward,
the maximum temperature may be five degrees.
It will feel a bit more like winter.
At the moment, though,
we are seeing the back of the rain that we had on Monday.
That area of low pressure pulling away.
A little bump of high-pressure before we get some weather fronts
later in the week.
So Tuesday may well be the best day of the week.
Light winds, some sunshine,
particularly across Northern Ireland,
developing in Western Scotland, Wales, the western side of England.
There's going to be more cloud further east.
You may get a shower out of it.
But most places will be dry and even eastern areas,
will brighten up with a little sunshine,
temperatures perhaps a shade higher than they were on Monday.
It will feel pleasant in those light winds and sunshine.
Looming out to the west, though, we have an area of low pressure.
It is a big one. Spinning around it,
a couple of weather fronts that will bring some bands of rain.
Some uncertainty as to the position of these rain bands
and how quickly they will drive up from the south-west.
But many western areas will see some rain at times
and here around the coast,
we will have gale-force winds.
It will be a windy day on Wednesday
but for many central and eastern areas, probably dry.
Get some sunshine in the south-east,
That is going to be the warmest day of this week.
That area of low pressure is still there.
These weather fronts slowly pushing their way northwards
and eastwards across the UK
away from the south-west,
perhaps away from Northern Ireland
into Scotland, across Wales,
towards the south-east of England
maybe later in the day.
Again, some uncertainty as to how far this rain is going to get
because everything is moving quite slowly.
Further north and east, it may well be dry,
temperatures perhaps 10, 11 degrees
at the very best.
But the signs are that it's Starting to get a bit colder.
Whilst we've got that low pressure
and we've got that weather front which sort of stops
and starts to come back again, it's running into high-pressure
that is going to be a dominant feature as we head into the outlook.
So we have got some wetter weather maybe coming back into
Northern Ireland, southern parts
of England, Wales, the Midlands.
There'll be some heavy showers.
At least there those temperatures won't be too bad.
Look what happens to the north of that rain belt.
We're getting into some colder air, temperatures dropping
and we are getting some snow falling, especially across Scotland.
Then that colder air sweeps down across the whole of the country
and we will see some snow showers.
More especially on the eastern side of the UK and that is
because we will have an easterly wind developing across-the-board.
So temperatures will be significantly lower
at the start of the weekend.
Snow showers Saturday, we've got
an area of low pressure potentially close to the south on Sunday.
That could bring some more organised, heavier snowfall.
That looks less likely.
What seems more likely is that high-pressure will build
in one way or another
and it may well actually turn a little bit drier as we head
into the beginning of next week,
with more of a northerly wind.
Then if we look at the upper-level winds,
which is the jet stream, of course,
it has been a long way south,
but towards the middle of next week,
we start to the jet stream
moving a bit further north,
strengthening across the Atlantic.
But for a while, in the outlook it is going to be cold.
Those easterly winds, there maybe northerly winds,
there will be some snow showers around
and then as the jet stream changes position,
we get more of this Atlantic air coming in,
maybe bringing some milder conditions as well.
The Beast from the East? More the mini beast.
