this week, january will go out, february will start on a much more active spell of weather than we've had recently. we're all going to see some wet weather at times as we go through the week. it'll become windy, potentially very windy at the end of the week, and even where we're starting the week cold, particularly in scotland, it'll be turning milder. 0ne weather system is pulling away from the uk, another is approaching. in between the two we've got plenty of cloud. many parts starting free. scotland isn't. a hard frost, particularly across highland scotland, —8 could be yours to begin the day, with mist and fog as well, just gradually clearing through the morning. so, do watch out for that. yep, definitely frosty in scotland. but that patchy mist and fog into the central belt, for example, to start the day could well slow you down. here's the contrast. as we move into northern england, across northern ireland, the rest of england and wales, it's low cloud keeping up temperatures. hill fog, too, coastal fog in some spots, particularly across the south—west of the uk, it is damp and drizzly in places, too, and another weather system taking outbreaks of rain
into south—west england. and as we go on through monday, that is going to take its rain very slowly across the rest of south—west england, into south and west wales and eventually into northern ireland. ahead of that, plenty of cloud, a few brighter breaks in northern england, but after that morning mist and fog the best of the afternoon sunshine will be across scotland. this is where you have the lowest daytime temperatures after that cold start. very mild across wales and south—west england. some of us getting into double figures. monday night we continue to see this wet weather pushing further north and east across the uk, starting chilly on monday night in scotland. temperatures coming up, though. bit of sleet and snow possible over the higher ground. and then on tuesday it slides east and south—east across the uk, so again, another spell of rain for many of us. plenty of cloud, just brightening up into the afternoon. into northern ireland, a few sunny spells coming through and double—figure temperatures for more of us by the time we get to tuesday.
looking ahead to wednesday, that system slowing down before clearing away from eastern areas. then a little bit of a gap before the next system heading into the west. and i just want to show you the picture now for thursday into friday. and a deep area of low pressure dominating proceedings. now, it may not look like this thursday into friday. there's a lot of uncertainty about the detail. i just want to flag up the possibility, though, that this week could end on a very windy note. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is tom donkin. here's our top stories: after protest and confusion, the white house clarifies president trump's immigration policy, insisting he's not targeting muslims. seniorfigures in donald trump's own party say the measures have been poorly implemented but the president stands firm. meet the candidate: benoit hamon. a politician from the hard—left will represent the french socialist party in this year's presidential election. and meet baba sen —
