of the latest on manchester city. back to the top of the premier league now. for much more. till next time, goodbye. hello there. it's certainly been quite a turbulent start to the month of april. let's look back at wednesday's weather under an area of low pressure, we had clouds spiralling across the british isles, gale force gusty winds in the far north. for some, it brought a classic april day. sunny spells and scattered showers. not feeling too bad and the sunshine, some of the showers quite heavy with hail, but for others, this is what we were greeted with the first thing in the morning. some lying snow, several centimetres in places across parts of scotland and north englad. it does look like this is a potential for further snow over the next few hours, but in a slightly different air. it is worth bearing in mind there could be a little bit
of disruption on minor roads. that area of low pressure is slipping this southwest and that is where we are likely to see the most unsubtle weather over the next few hours. any snow is likely to be to higher ground across wales but it is worth bearing in mind we could see slushy deposits at lower levels and may be for a time into west midlands as well. circulating around that low is a band of showers, it'll be a pretty miserable early morning rush hour. elsewhere, some clearer skies and sunshine coming through. this area around scotland slowly edging its way westwards as we go through the day. into the afternoon, the best of the sunshine looks likely to be the further east you are, underneath that area of low pressure, we still see the bands of rain circulating around. by friday, the low starts to lose its grip a little. it sinks further south and west, weakens slightly and the one direction starts to come in from southeasterly, a slightly mild source and that will be a noticeable change across the country.
it means that the showers are likely to be if you far between in comparison to what we have seen for the there is impotence on friday starting gun for the showers but they will fade away perhaps northern ireland seeing the heaviest into the afternoon. and elsewhere, some sunny spells coming through. and it will feel a degree or so milder back into double digits, ten to 13 degrees. that looks likely to be the scene as we move into the weekend. because that southeasterly flow will continue to drag and milder air from the near continent, the only issue with that is it could bring a little bit more in the way of cloud and some moisture. it could be quite a murky weekend. that is worth bearing in mind. in comparison to what we have seen this week, it is not going to be anywhere near as cold. take care.
