hello. monday's mildest weather was found in the far north of the uk. and it's not that often we get to say that! whereas many areas stayed chilly, just one degree in parts of mid wales, highland scotland saw temperatures climbing all the way to ten degrees because of a feed of south—westerly winds from the atlantic, bringing a lot of cloud, bringing some outbreaks of rain, but also bringing some milder air, which stays in place across northern areas to start tuesday, while southern areas have something much colder. so nine degrees there in stornoway, compare that with freezing in london. some spots a few degrees below freezing, and with the potential for some fog. a met office yellow warning was issued for the risk of some dense fog patches in an area that
includes some key motorways and some major airports as well. and even if it isn't foggy, it's likely to be quite grey and murky, with some low cloud in places. so, poor visibility could cause some disruption and some of that fog could be quite slow to clear. but generally speaking across england and wales we should see some sunny spells developing. whereas for northern ireland and scotland, there will be a lot of cloud, best of the brightness, i tihnk, across north—eastern scotland, eastern counties in northern ireland. still a south—westerly wind here, so ten degrees in stornoway, also 11 down in plymouth, but in many spots, we will have single digit temperatures once again. now, as we move through tuesday night into the early hours of wednesday, again there is potential for fog across central and eastern and southern parts of england, another chilly night and chilly start to the day here. further north and west, milder, but with some extra cloud, more of a breeze and some outbreaks of rain thanks to this frontal system here.
this will be working its way in from the west as we go through on wednesday and you can see quite a few light lines, quite a few isobars on the chart, there will be strong winds across north—western parts as well. that rain getting to scotland and northern ireland, eventually into the far north of england, further south and east some of that fog to start off, which could be slow to clear. then we see some sunny spells. again, single digits for most but in the far south—west, the far north—west, we'll be up at 10—11 degrees. now, as we head into thursday, we're going to see persistent rain piling on in western scotland, perhaps enough to cause some problems, maybe some localised flooding. it's going to be a windy day for many, particularly in the north—west. steady wind speeds you can see there in the arrows, gusts of 50—60 miles an hour. further south and east, not as windy, and again we'll see some spells of sunshine. nine degrees there in london, but many more spots in double digits by this stage. and it will be milder for all of us by friday, but still quite windy with some rain at times.
