hello again. we're going to see some big changes in our weather over the next few days of this week. not much snow on the mountains in scotland at the moment in this weather watch picture, sent to us by "colliestun". but you got a sense that that's going to change in a big way for scotland over the next few days as our weather turned significantly colder. now, on the satellite picture, we've got a streak of cloud to the north—west of the uk. and that's a cold front that's working in towards our shores. but if you're heading outside over the next few hours, the only place you're likely to come across rain is northern ireland, and even here the rain is going to be patchy in nature. clear spells further east allowing some frost, so it will be quite a chilly start for a number of us first thing in the morning. there's our area of high pressure slipping away to the continent. and here comes our cold front, bringing that thickening cloud, and eventually outbreaks of rain. so the rain will turn heavy and steady through the day
for western scotland and for northern ireland. but for eastern scotland, for most of england and wales, actually, we've got another fine day coming up with some spring sunshine, the best of it across southern counties. it might be april the first, but don't be fooled by those rising temperatures in cardiff, highs up to 16 degrees. there is only one direction of travel for the weather, and that is for things to get much colder. now through monday evening and night—time, we'll see the band of rain, our cold front sinks southwards, taking the rain across northern ireland and scotland, into parts of england and wales through the night. ahead of the front, seven degrees in london. we're starting to get the colder air tucking in across scotland and northern ireland — the shape of things to come. so really from tuesday onwards, it's then that we'll start to see the really cold air digging in. turning colder, rain or showers, be cold enough for some hill snow and some overnight frost as well. this area of low pressure is going to be slipping southwards during tuesday, dragging in cold winds, coming all the way from within the arctic circle. our cold front by this stage will be pushing eastwards, taking the rain with it on tuesday.
the colder air following. sunshine and showers — some of the showers heavy with some hail and thunder and yeah, there will be snow on the hills as well. now a look at the temperatures. highs of seven degrees in belfast. factor in those strong northerly winds, it really is going to feel quite cold, especially compared with the weather we've seen over recent days. low pressure then stays with us through the rest of the week, really. this area of low pressure in the north sea bringing rain and potentially some significant mountain snow across scotland and perhaps also the pennines as well for a time on wednesday. elsewhere, another day of sunshine and heavy showers. and the thing with the showers is, when they come along, they could drop the temperatures over a short period of time by four orfive degrees, so it is going to feel pretty chilly out and about.
