WEEKEND WEATHER FORECAST
===========================

Issued 1100 Thursday 13th December 2012

Saturday:
A complex area of low pressure stretches from west to east across northern Scotland on Saturday. An occluded front brings cloud and rain to the central and northern parts of Scotland too. The rain could be heavy at times across the north of Scotland, and it will be windy here too.
Further south across southern Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland a more unstable southwesterly flow will develop. Winds could be strong i the far south with troughs passing eastwards. These troughs will be bringing heavy showers, mostly to western and southern coasts, but some may affect northern England and Northern Ireland too, especially in the morning. For most places away from these areas the day will be drier, breezy with sunny spells and just an odd passing shower.
Visibility will be largely good but moderate or poor in showers, and poor in rain in northern Scotland.
Winds mainly SW 20-28kt (F6-F7) along southern coasts of England, 14-18kt (F5) inland. Becoming cyclonic 8-15kt (F4) over northern Ebngland cose to the cenrtres of the low pressure, and then SE 23-30kt (F7) in northern Scotland, but 30-40kt (F8-F9) across Shetland and Orkney.

Sunday:
Low pressure remains to the north of Scotland on Sunday. The unstable southwest flow persists with troughs again passing eastwards through the UK and Ireland.
Heavy showers will be affecting western and southern coasts once again, although these probably not as heavy for most as on Saturday. Heavier showers will be affecting Ireland.
For most there will be sunny spells through the day, and many central and eastern areas should be staying dry throughout. Showers around the coasts may be heavy in the west and south.
The showers merging to more persistent rain through Ireland in the afternoon, especially in the south and west.
Visibility should be mostly good but moderate in showers.
Winds SW 16-20kt (F5) but 22-25kt (F5-F6) on western and southern coasts, and SW 23-28kt (F6-F7) over southern and western Ireland.

Simon, have you got yourself a Tardis? (Now there's an idea for accurate forecasts!)

"Issued 1100 Thursday 13th December 2012". I'm reading it at 1000 and it was posted half an hour ago. :)
