10:56 pm
through the next couple of days. it'll be quite a chilly start to the morning across some southern areas, but that's where we'll see the best of the morning sunshine. quite a lot of cloud to start off for scotland and northern ireland, with some patchy rain. and by the afternoon, we are essentially all in the same boat. we'll see some spells of sunshine developing, but there will also be some showers, some of which will be heavy and thundery. quite a few showers across parts of southern england, the midlands, east anglia, across this eastern side of england. maybe not as many showers across parts of wales. northern ireland, turning brighter into the afternoon, sunny spells but still scattered showers and just 12 degrees for belfast. 11 at best in aberdeen, and these heavy showers across scotland will be quite slow—moving, given we will have very light winds. now, through monday night, some of the showers will continue. the area of low pressure just sits on top of us, and so the showers just continue to circulate around and we will see this band of cloud bringing some slightly more persistent rain, perhaps into the far west of scotland. bit of mist and murk across parts
10:57 pm
of scotland as well, quite a chilly start again on tuesday morning. it's another sunshine and showers day for most, but we will see this area of more persistent rain dropping its way southwards into parts of northern ireland. it may well be that across wales and the southwest, by the afternoon, there will be fewer showers and more in the way of sunshine. and temperatures will nudge upwards a little, 12—18 degrees. still some showers around on wednesday, but they will increasingly become confined to northern and eastern parts. further west, more in the way of dry weather, some spells of sunshine, and again slightly warmer — 17 to maybe 20 degrees across parts of the southeast. now, as we head into the long weekend, this area of high pressure will try to settle things down, but this little weather front threatens to bring some showers in from the northwest. this low spinning to the south threatens to throw some showers across the channel islands and into southern counties of england, so certainly there is the chance of a few showers as we head through the weekend. it should often be dry, and where we see some sunshine, it will feel relatively warm.
