A Mixed Week - More Wintry After Midweek

After a blustery weekend, the new working week has started on a calmer note with just a smattering of showers across the country. Those showers have started the day mainly in western regions - particularly the northwest but they will tend to move southeast as the day wears on - leaving the shower prone (of late) west of Scotland and northwest of England to end the day with some drier, brighter weather. It doesn't last into Tuesday though as a band of heavy rain (falling as snow over the hills of northern England and Scotland) moves in during the early hours an quickly spreads east. The winds will increase again too, with gusts of 30-40mph across many parts. During tomorrow the rain will take it's time to clear east, and by the evening another batch of wet weather will have arrived into northern England and Scotland. That will still be in attendance on Wednesday too with frequent, squally showery outbreaks of rain affecting much of Scotland and down the western half of the country, eventually it will make it's way southeast though, with some colder air turning the showers wintry in behind it. Into Thursday the rain will be slow to clear the southeast corner, but elsewhere it's colder with fairly frequent showers in the north and west making their way a little way inland, and becoming increasingly wintry even to lower levels. As we close out the week the cool or cold air and wintry showers are likely to still be with us, although milder conditions should return for a time at least into the weekend - although it's important to say that there is a good deal of uncertainty from Thursday onward..
