Hi everyone,

Well, what a wonderful week of weather, and the good news is that apart from a few 'blips' it should stay fair into the weekend.

Have a great weekend,

A slack pressure flow covers the country on Saturday. High pressure to the east will bring a northeast flow through eastern areas, with low pressure to the west pushing a weakening cold front eastwards through Ireland and Scotland.
Western areas of Scotland and Wales as well as much of Ireland will have a cloudy morning with some outbreaks of rain. Some of this could be persistent in the morning bringing moderate or poor visibility. It should fade through the morning as the front moves eastwards into the rest of Scotland and the far north of England.
Elsewhere it will be a fair start to the day with sunny spells but also a fair amount of broken cloud. Scattered showers will be developing into the afternoon, a few of them heavy at times in the Midlands and across northern England.
Winds mainly NE F2 over eastern and southern areas, but sea breezes forming on southern coasts. SW 12-16kt (F4) in northwest Scotland and N 9-11kt (F3) in western Wales, England and Ireland.


A col affects the whole of the country on Sunday. High pressure will be roughly east and west, whilst low pressure is to the north and south.
It should be a fair morning overall with broken cloud and moderate to good visibility. There could be an area of cloud and rain affecting western coasts of Scotland and Ireland, although most of this will be light.
A few showers over northeast England at first. These should fade for a time, but then a further area of scattered showers will be developing through much of the Midlands, and patchy rain affects Ireland and the central and northern parts of Scotland.
Winds in the south will be mainly NE 8-10kt (F3) with sea breezes on southern coasts. SW 12-15kt (F4) for northern and western Scotland.
