Hello. We may be heading towards the start of British Summertime,

0:00:020:00:05

but the weather is yo-yoing between something springlike

0:00:050:00:07

and something more wintry

0:00:070:00:09

over the next 10 days or so.

0:00:090:00:11

For the rest of this week,

0:00:110:00:12

it's looking a bit milder than it has been.

0:00:120:00:14

There's some rain around at times too, but not a wash-out.

0:00:140:00:18

We are seeing an Atlantic influence

0:00:180:00:19

to our weather over the next few days.

0:00:190:00:21

So through Wednesday night into Thursday, we've got

0:00:210:00:24

this frontal system moving in from the Atlantic.

0:00:240:00:26

During Thursday morning,

0:00:260:00:27

potentially still a bit of rain in the far east first thing.

0:00:270:00:30

That should fizzle away.

0:00:300:00:31

Quite a lot of dry weather with some sunshine

0:00:310:00:33

for eastern Scotland, central and eastern England as well.

0:00:330:00:36

More cloud moves in from the west

0:00:360:00:38

with some rain for Northern Ireland and western Scotland.

0:00:380:00:40

But for eastern Scotland in the sunshine,

0:00:400:00:42

we could see 13 degrees or so.

0:00:420:00:44

And further south, most of us around 10 to 12 degrees.

0:00:440:00:48

And then moving through into Thursday evening

0:00:480:00:50

and overnight into Friday,

0:00:500:00:51

this band of rain will slowly track its way

0:00:510:00:54

gradually further eastwards across much of the country.

0:00:540:00:56

It's quite cold at the moment across the eastern seaboard of the US,

0:00:560:01:00

but as we move across the Atlantic, watch the jet stream.

0:01:000:01:03

Towards the UK, we've got this bulge of milder air with us.

0:01:030:01:07

It's not going to be sticking around too long, though.

0:01:070:01:09

Heading through into Friday, a cold front moves slowly eastwards.

0:01:090:01:13

That will bring a band of cloud

0:01:130:01:15

with outbreaks of rain

0:01:150:01:17

across many parts of the country.

0:01:170:01:18

Clear in the east during the day

0:01:180:01:20

and then a return to sunshine

0:01:200:01:22

but also showers coming in

0:01:220:01:23

as those winds turn more north-westerly.

0:01:230:01:25

Could be some hail, potentially sleet or snow over higher ground,

0:01:250:01:29

but for most places those showers will be falling as rain.

0:01:290:01:32

With temperatures between 8 to 12 degrees on Friday.

0:01:320:01:35

As we end the week and head towards the weekend,

0:01:350:01:38

it's not looking too bad.

0:01:380:01:39

We have got low pressure not far away,

0:01:390:01:41

but it's to the north of the UK.

0:01:410:01:43

Also an area of low pressure

0:01:430:01:44

slowly clearing from the south.

0:01:440:01:46

So on Saturday, fairly cloudy skies for much of England and Wales

0:01:460:01:50

with a potential for patchy rain

0:01:500:01:51

towards the south and east.

0:01:510:01:53

And then some sunnier skies further north-west,

0:01:530:01:56

but we've still got showers packing in on that north-westerly breeze

0:01:560:01:59

across western Scotland, Northern Ireland too.

0:01:590:02:01

Potentially a bit of wintriness just over the hills.

0:02:010:02:04

Heading into the second half of the weekend,

0:02:040:02:07

it looks like it should be

0:02:070:02:08

an improving picture for Sunday.

0:02:080:02:10

So weather fronts largely clearing away.

0:02:100:02:12

There could be early frost and fog patches

0:02:120:02:14

that should clear to leave a largely dry day.

0:02:140:02:17

Sunny skies and relatively light winds.

0:02:170:02:19

Still that ongoing threat of more wintry showers

0:02:190:02:22

towards the north-west of Scotland,

0:02:220:02:24

but much of the UK avoiding those showers, staying dry.

0:02:240:02:27

In the sunshine, we're likely to see 9 to 12 degrees,

0:02:270:02:30

so relatively typical of the time of year.

0:02:300:02:32

Then, heading through into Monday,

0:02:320:02:34

the next area of low pressure is set

0:02:340:02:36

to be working in from the west.

0:02:360:02:38

So though Monday is likely to start off dry and bright,

0:02:380:02:40

especially towards the east where we should keep the sunshine

0:02:400:02:43

for much of the day,

0:02:430:02:44

we are likely to see rain working from west to east,

0:02:440:02:47

probably for Northern Ireland,

0:02:470:02:49

then into parts of England and Wales too.

0:02:490:02:51

Temperatures in the south

0:02:510:02:53

up to around 13 degrees or so,

0:02:530:02:54

but they will turn that bit cooler

0:02:540:02:56

from the north-west.

0:02:560:02:58

And then, as we look further ahead,

0:02:580:02:59

heading towards Easter now,

0:02:590:03:01

it does look like we will start to see

0:03:010:03:03

more of a northerly influence to our weather.

0:03:030:03:05

Still uncertainty at this stage,

0:03:050:03:07

but it could be that we start to draw in winds

0:03:070:03:10

from a north-easterly direction.

0:03:100:03:12

So potentially that could bring not just colder weather,

0:03:120:03:15

but one or two wintry flurries towards Easter.

0:03:150:03:17

But over the next 10 days after those weekend showers

0:03:170:03:20

and a mild start to next week,

0:03:200:03:22

do watch out for a dip in those temperatures once again.

0:03:220:03:25

But we'll firm up on the detail over the next few days.

0:03:250:03:28

Bye for now.
