Hello. We may be heading towards the start of British Summertime,
but the weather is yo-yoing between something springlike
and something more wintry
over the next 10 days or so.
For the rest of this week,
it's looking a bit milder than it has been.
There's some rain around at times too, but not a wash-out.
We are seeing an Atlantic influence
to our weather over the next few days.
So through Wednesday night into Thursday, we've got
this frontal system moving in from the Atlantic.
During Thursday morning,
potentially still a bit of rain in the far east first thing.
That should fizzle away.
Quite a lot of dry weather with some sunshine
for eastern Scotland, central and eastern England as well.
More cloud moves in from the west
with some rain for Northern Ireland and western Scotland.
But for eastern Scotland in the sunshine,
we could see 13 degrees or so.
And further south, most of us around 10 to 12 degrees.
And then moving through into Thursday evening
and overnight into Friday,
this band of rain will slowly track its way
gradually further eastwards across much of the country.
It's quite cold at the moment across the eastern seaboard of the US,
but as we move across the Atlantic, watch the jet stream.
Towards the UK, we've got this bulge of milder air with us.
It's not going to be sticking around too long, though.
Heading through into Friday, a cold front moves slowly eastwards.
That will bring a band of cloud
with outbreaks of rain
across many parts of the country.
Clear in the east during the day
and then a return to sunshine
but also showers coming in
as those winds turn more north-westerly.
Could be some hail, potentially sleet or snow over higher ground,
but for most places those showers will be falling as rain.
With temperatures between 8 to 12 degrees on Friday.
As we end the week and head towards the weekend,
it's not looking too bad.
We have got low pressure not far away,
but it's to the north of the UK.
Also an area of low pressure
slowly clearing from the south.
So on Saturday, fairly cloudy skies for much of England and Wales
with a potential for patchy rain
towards the south and east.
And then some sunnier skies further north-west,
but we've still got showers packing in on that north-westerly breeze
across western Scotland, Northern Ireland too.
Potentially a bit of wintriness just over the hills.
Heading into the second half of the weekend,
it looks like it should be
an improving picture for Sunday.
So weather fronts largely clearing away.
There could be early frost and fog patches
that should clear to leave a largely dry day.
Sunny skies and relatively light winds.
Still that ongoing threat of more wintry showers
towards the north-west of Scotland,
but much of the UK avoiding those showers, staying dry.
In the sunshine, we're likely to see 9 to 12 degrees,
so relatively typical of the time of year.
Then, heading through into Monday,
the next area of low pressure is set
to be working in from the west.
So though Monday is likely to start off dry and bright,
especially towards the east where we should keep the sunshine
for much of the day,
we are likely to see rain working from west to east,
probably for Northern Ireland,
then into parts of England and Wales too.
Temperatures in the south
up to around 13 degrees or so,
but they will turn that bit cooler
from the north-west.
And then, as we look further ahead,
heading towards Easter now,
it does look like we will start to see
more of a northerly influence to our weather.
Still uncertainty at this stage,
but it could be that we start to draw in winds
from a north-easterly direction.
So potentially that could bring not just colder weather,
but one or two wintry flurries towards Easter.
But over the next 10 days after those weekend showers
and a mild start to next week,
do watch out for a dip in those temperatures once again.
But we'll firm up on the detail over the next few days.
Bye for now.
