well, the end of last week was pretty stormy. gale force winds across the uk. this week, steady waters around the uk. high pressure is building, the winds will be light for most of us. we have sunshine and frosty mornings on the way as well. monday will be no different. very decent weather on the way. this is the big picture across the continent right now. this high pressure is starting to build across spain, portugal and into france. it's nudging into the uk and soon it will engulf the whole of europe. at the moment, it is still pretty chilly because the winds are blowing out of the north—north—west, however, the milder air you can see here will be reaching out shores by about wednesday. this is what it looks like early
hours of monday morning — a couple of showers may be affecting north—eastern parts of england and scotland but on the whole, it's looking clear across most of the uk and there will be a frost. the coldest of the weather, as you would expect, across scotland. minus two in edinburgh, but outside of town, colder than that. a touch of frost further south expected as well but not an awful lot. monday starts off sunny. many of us will have a sunny day all day long, however, western areas of the country will turn more hazy. weather fronts are trying to get in. maybe even a few light spots of rain but this is pretty much where they grind to a halt because of that high pressure building across many western parts of europe. here is the high pressure across western parts of europe as it builds further towards the east but notice it's displaced further south away from us — that means the weather front‘s just about nibbling into the north—west of the british isles so maybe again a bit of cloud, a few spots of rain,
increasing breeze here. but really, in the western isles, the vast majority of the country, 99% of us having dry weather through the course of tuesday and those temperatures are starting to rise because we have those south—westerly winds. in fact, we're already expecting double figures in aberdeen, edinburgh, newcastle and belfast. that's tuesday. by the time we get to wednesday, the mild air has well and truly arrived on our shores. in fact, it is also seeping into parts of scandinavia and western as well as eastern parts of europe. by thursday and friday, those winds turn to a southerly, so that means one thing, those temperatures will continue to rise. by thursday it could be around 13 or 14 degrees, notjust in the south of the country but even in one or two spots across scotland. so the weather this week is looking absolutely fine. bye— bye. stalin welcome to bbc news — broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. i'm reged ahmad. our top stories: as mainly kurdish forces clash with islamic state fighters in syria — america's top military commander says us troops will probably start
