Issued: 1200 Friday 21st January 2011

High pressure is the dominant pressure feature through Saturday, being centred to the northwest of Ireland. The high has an influence on the weather throughout the UK and Ireland. A weak occluded front over southern England indicating a more moist airmass here.
Plenty of cloud around throughout Saturday morning. There is the threat of some spots of light rain across southeastern parts of the country. Further west mist and fog patches may be dense across Wales, western England, western Scotland and Ireland, these slowly clearing through the morning.
The afternoon sees a stiff breeze developing across southeast England, with much of England staying cloudy throughout with a further risk of some spots of rain to the southeast.
Western areas are likely to become brighter with some sunny spells developing here, although fog patches may linger throughout the day over parts of Wales and western Scotland. Thicker cloud for northwestern parts of Scotland.
Winds mainly NE 11-15kt (F4) across southern areas, but increasing 18-25kt (F5-F6) across eastern England later. Mainly NW 10-15kt (F4-F5) for northern Scotland, generally N-NW 6-9kt (F3) across western Scotland and Ireland.


Similar conditions on Sunday as high pressure remains to the west of Ireland. More moist air is always likely to be affecting East Anglia and southeast England.
Plenty of cloud for more eastern parts of Scotland and England again today and there may be a few spots of drizzle over the high ground here.
To the west morning cloud is likely to be lifting slowly and it may well break into the afternoon. Mainly dry with some sunny spells across much of Scotland, Wales and the far west of England.
Ireland will probably be more misty with some fog patches, these tending to be reluctant to clear, but becoming fair where the do finally clear away.
Winds mainly N-NE 17-22kt (F5) across southern and central England, to 25kt (F6) in the east. Mainly NW 11-15kt (F3-F4) for Scotland.
