plenty on our website. thank you for watching. hello there. after a fairly mixed weekend weatherwise, our rather unsettled spell of august weather is set to continue this week. this is how we ended sunday. some clear skies there in cambridgeshire, captured by one of our weather watchers, but we've still got low pressure in charge of things. sat to the north—west of the uk, here is a trailing weather front, which will bring rain to some central parts of the country, down towards the south—west, during the course of the day. for scotland and for northern ireland this morning, there will be some sunshine to start your day. quite a fresh morning, actually, here. one or two showers pushing in from the north—west, and the odd shower for northern england too. heading down from lincolnshire, towards the midlands, towards south—west england, you are under the influence of a weather front from the word go,
1:56 am
so fairly cloudy and damp. some sunshine to start off your day across the south—east of england, and east anglia, too. and for the likes of kent and sussex, it should remain pretty warm and bright, really, for much of the day. a little bit further north, we've got that weather front bringing a few showers to east anglia and london, and some spells of rain across the south—west of england, and south wales, too. now, temperatures today about 18 to 21 degrees. sunshine and showers for scotland, and for northern ireland, too. if you're lucky enough to be heading to the athletics world championship today, we'll see the cloud building through the course of the afternoon. could bring an isolated shower later on. now, through the course of monday evening, and overnight into tuesday, this weather front from the south now start to pivot and return a little bit further north. so that is going to bring rain into central wales and through the midlands to start your tuesday morning. to the north of that, clearer skies, with a few showers around too, but low pressure is going to dominate. we have got this area of low pressure around the near continent. that is going to push its way northwards, up towards the north sea, in fact,
1:57 am
over the next couple of days. we could well import some pretty heavy showers across the south—east corner later on in the day. still some sunshine here. to the north of that, we've got that front bringing rain for parts of the midlands, northern england, in towards wales and the south—west. scotland and northern ireland having another day of sunny spells and a few scattered showers. now, an improvement from the north—west, i think, during wednesday, but for central and eastern parts of england we're still likely to see some heavy, potentially thundery showers, and it will feel rather cool for the time of year. 16 to 19 degrees. during thursday, again, relatively cool, but actually probably be the dryer day, and the brightest day of the week, before we see a return to some rain, particularly in the north and west, during the course of friday. so for the week ahead, all in all, things are looking pretty unsettled. showers or rain at times. rather cool and breezy, but some sunshine in between the showers. bye bye. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is gavin grey. our top stories: venezuela's president praises the army
