Weekend Weather Prospects with Jon Mitchell

This weekend, for sure, won't be as nice as last weekend.

The main reason is that we have Low pressure on the weather chart this weekend as opposed to High pressure last weekend.

High pressure is descending air which compresses, warms and evaporates clouds.

Low pressure is rising air which expands, cools and generates clouds.

The most persistent rain will be in Pennine areas, the Peak District and The Yorkshire Dales where the Met Office have issued a Yellow 'Be Aware' warning for persistent rain with up to 50mm possible in 24 yours, that's 2 inches.

Further east away from the hills the rain will be more showery but some of the showers could be heavy and, during the afternoon, possibly thundery. The best of any sunny breaks will be over the East Riding and Lincolnshire. Temperatures will still be pleasant at around 20C.

Sunday will start quite cloudy with some rain over Yorkshire and some gusty winds but the wind and rain will move away northwards as sunshine moves up from the south.
