hello. monday brought some beautiful winter sunshine to large swathes of the uk. unfortunately, the prospects for the rest of this week are distinctly dull for one reason or another, be it a lot of low cloud lurking about, orfor this morning, some pretty stubborn fog. the high pressure that's keeping things dry is going to be staying with us, but it's just going to reorientate itself a little through the next few days, eventually shifting away south—westwards and pulling in more moisture from the atlantic. and that's what's going to help to thicken our cloud. for this morning, the densest of fog likely to be an issue, i think, across southern counties of england and into south wales. a lot of our major motorways, of course, in this area. please do bear in mind when you take to the roads that the fog could be patchy, so you could be in it one minute, out of it the next, then back in, and that is particularly dangerous. and tuesday, as promised, a pretty grey affair. best of any breaks probably to the lee of high ground, the east of the pennines, sheltered spots to the east of scotland. further west, some rain actually for argyll and bute. topsy—turvy temperatures, actually. 0ur mildest weather to the north of the uk, with that atlantic feed

to the north of the high. to the south, just six or seven, colder if you get stuck where the fog lingers. 0vernight tuesday into wednesday, plenty of cloud across the uk, plenty of moisture, generally very murky, and because of all that cloud around, our temperatures will be held up. so frost limited possibly to a few pockets across southernmost counties of england for first thing on wednesday. and you can see the high here, as promised, sitting a little bit further south—westwards. and i've put the colour on behind me here to show you the air mass, to show you the atlantic air tipping over the top of the high and spilling its way south into england and wales for wednesday. things on the ground not looking too different, unfortunately. how many ways can you say cloudy and grey? best of any breaks in the east. but the temperatures do just nudge up a little. about 10—12 degrees typically across the uk, certainly the biggest increase to the south. and for the rest of the week, same old, same old. the high still with us, always slightly milder to the north, a little cooler to the south. some signs of a bit more rainfall
5:57 am
perhaps across scotland, for a time, as a front works its way in. but, by the end of the week, the high really does start to break down, and then friday into saturday, it looks like we'll get an area of low pressure sweeping across the uk. that gets rid of a lot of the murk. we should see the return of some sunny spells, but they will also be accompanied by some showers, and look out — it will turn windier once again as well.
