Issued 1100 Thursday 29th November 2012

A complex area of low pressure is going to be in the North Sea on Saturday. This brings a north to northwesterly flow through the whole of the UK and Ireland.
An occluded front clears southern and southeastern England early by late Saturday morning, taking some outbreaks of rain and sleet with it.
Following will be much drier and brighter weather, but it will be chilly too. Showers affecting coastal areas through the day, although the southern coasts of England should be dry. Generally, inland, the day should be dry with good spells of sunshine. Visibility will be good overall, although moderate in the showers around the coasts.
Winds mainly NW 12-15kt (F4) but 20-25kt (F6) across the coasts of eastern England and Scotland until early afternoon.


A ridge of high pressure early on Sunday morning brings a frosty start to the day. It will be icy too where showers fell through Saturday, and there is a risk of some morning fog patches in more sheltered areas at first.
For most it will be a fair morning with good spells of sunshine. However, a front moving into Ireland will be pushing cloud and rain eastwards through the morning, this reaching wet Wales by lunchtime, and then edging eastwards into the Midlands, central southern England and western Scotland in the afternoon. There could be some snow over high ground on the leading edge on the front.
Many eastern areas remaining dry with good spells of sunshine, although feeling cold.
Visibility will become moderate or even poor in rain in the west, otherwise good, but poor in any morning fog patches.
Winds will be mainly W-NW 4-7kt (F2-F3) the becoming SW18-23kt (F5-F6) in the west as the rain arrives., then W-WSW 17-25kt (F5-F6) behind the front in the far west later.
