Issued: 1500 Thursday 22nd September 2011

A cold front is going to be passing east through England on Saturday. It is likely to only be a weak feature and will bring little more than a few spots of rain to western and central areas as it passes eastwards.
The best of any sunny spells will be towards the southeast, although even here the cloud is likely to be increasing as the afternoon progresses.
Drier and brighter weather should follow behind the front with cloud breaking across Ireland, Wales, Scotland and western England. Just an odd shower affecting the west coasts of Scotland and Wales as well as western Ireland.
Winds will be generally S 7-11kt (F3) ahead of the cold front, becoming S-SW 12-15kt (F3-F4) behind it but up to 18kt (F5) at times on western coasts, especially western Scotland and western Ireland.


Increasing moist air is going to be edging northwards through England, Wales and Ireland during Sunday. The warm front to the south marks the boundary of the more moist air, and this may well bring some low cloud, bits of drizzle and increasingly misty weather through the far southwest of England and the southern Irish Sea. Further east it should be drier, although an odd shower could break out, triggered by the warmth of the afternoon through the Midlands and East Anglia.
Scotland and northern England will have broken cloud and some bright spells, although an odd shower cannot be ruled out here and there.
Winds mainly S 10-15kt (F3-F4) in southeastern England, increasing further west to be S 18-23kt (F5) then to 28kt (F6) at times offshore in the west. Watch for the threat of severe gales affecting Ireland and Scotland overnight.
