now it's time for a look at the weather with susan powell hello. we have seen just about every kind of weather across the uk today. some snow in the north, some heavy rain farther south, showers bringing rumbles of thunder, and for some, there have been a few glimmers of brightness. there was northumberland though, not so long ago. underneath this area of low pressure with the cold air to the north, some slightly milder air is just trying to bump its way a little farther north currently. through this evening what we will tend to see is the snow across the far north of england and southern scotland turning to rain. one way or another, it looks like it could be a challenging night if you are travelling out and about for your evening out. still, some heavy snow to come across the highlands and into aberdeenshire. rain and a sleety snowy mix across central and southern scotland. some punchy showers, maybe with rumbles of thunder for northern ireland.
6:17 pm
then ice will become an issue as the skies start to clear. for the south, here is your evening from six to 9pm, rain pushing its way to the southwest of england, the midlands, eventually to east anglia and the southeast. skies clear behind that for some time, but then, it looks like some heavy showers will pack into north wales. the winds still remain particularly gusty. they will start to ease overnight. still, those gusts strong enough to do some damage in the coming few hours. here we are from 9pm onwards, a wet end to the day across the southeast andies to east anglia. clearer skies following. the lull of into the north sea. still breezy behind the lull. showers carrying into northern ireland, north wales, northern england, north midlands, and the north of scotland, and chilly across the northern half of the uk with a frost, so ice can be possibilityjust across anywhere in the northern half of the uk, first thing on sunday. sunday, we are on the rear edge of our area of low pressure. it stays breezy but not
6:18 pm
as windy as today. we could see some bands of more organised showers running their way south. it certainly looks like there's still some more wintry weather for scotland, for northern england for a time. some heavier rain pushing into wales and the southwest of england. dry on sunday, likely to be east anglia and the southeast. feeling chillier here, a milder day as the temperatures get up higher into the single figures range. for next week, though, finally, it looks like things will become quieter, drier, and certainly less windy.
