hello. there was some early morning snow across eastern england but it is a changing weather story through the day. across norfolk we have seen a little bit of lying snow and that has brought a winter wonderland for many children hoping to see some this season. however, it was a different story further west. milder air and temperatures around 8 degrees in somerset. cloudy skies but the rain has cleared away. this is the story as we have been through the morning. we have seen leading edge snow moving eastwards. behind it significant rain but that has already started to sweep its way steadily east and into the afternoon, it could be a case of sunny spells and just some scattered showers,
11:58 am
chiefly to the far north—west. the weather front that has brought all of this cloud and rain continues to push its way east. on the leading edge, there is the risk of further snow for a time but that eases as we go into the afternoon. you can see the clearance behind. there will be some decent sunny spells. some scattered showers, chiefly into scotland and maybe drifting down into north—west england. we could see gale force gusts of winds on exposed areas of scotland. for the remainder, a relatively quiet afternoon. bright and breezy for many. temperatures will pick up from nine to 11 degrees, notably cooler across norfolk. as we go through this evening, we keep that quiet story as a ridge of high pressure looks likely to build in from the west for sunday. it is going to be a quiet start. not too cold. temperatures are low single figures but they should stay above freezing for many. it'll be a dry story on sunday with sunshine coming through.
11:59 am
it will be a lovely day. we run the risk of some showers driven on by a westerly wind in scotland, clipping the far north of northern ireland, but on the whole dry and settled with some sunshine coming through and highs of 6—8 degrees. we change gear once again. no two days are the same. another area of low pressure brings wet and windy weather moving its way north during monday and tuesday. that means there is a risk at the start of a new week of seeing more of an unsettled theme to come. there will be some spells of heavy rain and some gale—force gusts of wind.
