Weather: Looking ahead

Weather from the west by midweek - milder but more unsettled Photo: CAROLYN FARTHING DUNN

Over the past weekend we've been under the influence of low pressure resting to the southeast of the UK.

This has brought stronger and colder air in from the east and thicker cloud with more unsettled conditions.

Further north and west - to Dumfries and Galloway and parts of Cumbria drier and brighter weather has prevailed.

Into Monday

As we head into the new working week low pressure remains with us - pushing a little further north and west into our region on Monday. This heightens the risk of cloudy skies and outbreaks of rain - especially for the east (to The Scottish Borders and Cumbrian Fells).

The winds will remain fairly strong and gusty at times from a northeasterly direction - making it feel cold, especially for eastern coasts and for hills.

Tuesday

On Tuesday there's a brief respite. Expect a drier day with just the chance of a shower.

Although there will be some cloud around it will appear 'brighter' with occasional breaks developing.

Winds will be lighter.

By Midweek

It's all change again by Wednesday. Eventually low pressure will win - but this time from the west.

Expect wet and windy weather for a time. This will eventually give way to sunshine and showers but winds will pick up again in the south.

The difference from midweek is that the air will this time be from the west (rather than the east) - so it will feel less cold.
