northwest on tuesday but it is bumping into high—pressure pushing in from the south. the many southern and eastern areas tuesday should be and eastern areas tuesday should be a fine day. some sunny spells, some cloud here and now, more cloud in the north—west where we have that wea k the north—west where we have that weak weather front bringing a few friends to western scotland and the irish sea coast. temperature is starting to add up so around 12— 1a degrees, top temperatures on tuesday. into wednesday another largely dry, saturday, wednesday is the spring equinox, looking largely dry and settled. some sunny spells breaking through the crowd and it will feel more like spring with 00:14:26,941 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 temperatures up to 16.
