A typical April day of sunshine and showers.
After the rain we've had this weekend, how can we possibly still be talking about a drought and hosepipe bans?
Wet today, turning even wetter through this evening and overnight.
As we move into a new week, the weather still remains disappointing for the time of year.
We appear to be sandwiched between two pressure systems. Low pressure to the east and high pressure to the west.
With a northerly air flow, it seems we are going to be influenced by both systems at times.
It's a week where you may wish to keep an umbrella to hand.
There will be rain at times, some showers, but also some dry and bright spells too.
Whilst there is still room for change (and in particular some uncertainty as to how much rain or not we will see across the London area on Tuesday), this is our current thinking:
Rest of today
After a dry evening, it will turn increasingly cloudy and damp overnight, with some rain or drizzle.
A misty and murky night with some fog forming in places.
It's worth bearing in mind the fog might have an impact on travel conditions tomorrow morning.
Rain will clear through the day tomorrow, to leave a drier and brighter afternoon.
Tuesday will be generally cloudy with a risk of rain.
Wednesday is likely to start dry and bright but with cloud building. Cloud thick enough to produce some spots of rain.
Thursday will turn rather breezy.
Is it spring? Feels more like winter!
Many of us have woken to falling snow or sleet across London and the Southeast.
The frontal system bringing us this wintry weather will ease and fizzle out in the next 12-24 hours and the big question is are we set to see any more snow?
In the run up to Easter, the weather is looking slightly better.
Drier overall, although we cant rule a little flurry on any given day, but on balance most places will be dry.
The skies will probably be fairly cloudy, although some bright spells can't be ruled out.
However it is staying bitterly cold. The cold temperatures exacerbated by a biting easterly wind.
Conditions by night, with the drier air and the strong winds will result in some sharp, penetrating frosts.
Snow in March is not unusual at this time of year (on April 4th 2012 we saw 5-10cm across the Pennines and North Wales), but what is unusual is the prolonged nature of the cold weather especially late in March that we have seen this year.
It's the weather for staying indoors.
Stay warm and have a good weekend.
