it's been a mild winter so far and one thing we've not seen a great deal of is snow. however, over the last few hours, behind this cold front, we have seen some snow showers push in across shetland so if heading outside soon, you might see more of these coming and going, some clear spells between, and a cold wind. scotland, cold enough for patches of frost but otherwise there is too much wind and cloud around, showers too, so it's not especially cold for england and wales and northern ireland, temperatures for most between 6 and 8 celsius for the early rises. the first part of monday, still a lot of cloud around and passing showers, probably sunshine for scotland but a frosty start here before thicker cloud works in the west and we see rain arriving. also some of that rain getting into shetland. mildest weather across western and southern parts, temperatures into double figures but noticeably cooler across eastern parts of the uk, temperatures 3 in lerwick and 5 in aberdeen. the cold weather doesn't last long, a warm front pushing through on monday night and tuesday, this weather front targeting western scotland, bringing heavy rain to the highlands. here, 50—100 millimetres of rain over the mountains, quite a wet spell of weather.
elsewhere, a lot of cloud and a few limited sunny spells but it's milder. temperatures for most of us between 10 and 11 celsius. notice those temperatures coming up in shetland so the threat of any snow receding with that milder weather arriving. tuesday night, the slow—moving weather front bringing rain in scotland will eventually push southwards, bringing the wet weather from scotland into northern ireland across parts of england and wales as well. to the south of our weather front, the cold front which continues to move in during wednesday, we should see some reasonable temperatures in the south with highs expected to reach about 10 celsius or so, but noticeably colder further north, cold enough for some hill snow there across northern parts of scotland with single—figure temperatures. that colder air moves southwards wednesday night and by thursday, winds coming down from the arctic and with that a lot of dry weather and sunshine but cold with a sharp frost and showers around as well. those showers are likely to be wintry with snow showers into the north of mainland scotland and the odd bit of sleet in the showers down
the north sea coast as well. a cold day, temperatures between 3 and 7 degrees celsius. that's your latest weather. goodbye. welcome to bbc news — broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. i'm reged ahmad. our top stories: the us secretary of state mike pompeo arrives in riyadh just as a senior saudi prince critcises the american decision to withdraw troops from syria. the us actions, from my perspective
