Issued 0800 Thursday 12th April 2012


High pressure is to the northwest of Scotland on Saturday with low pressure east of England. The result is a northeast flow through most of the country. This looks set to be a moist and fairly unstable flow.

There is likely to be a fair amount of cloud around, with bands of showers or rain tracking southwest through England and Wales. Showers across eastern and central Scotland too, some of them wintry on the hills. Visibility will be moderate in the rain or showers, otherwise good.

Ireland and western coasts of Scotland, England and Wales will be fairing better with dry weather here and some reasonable spells of sunshine throughout the day. Visibility should be good.

Winds mainly NE 14-18kt (F4-F5) in the south, but 20-25kt (F5-F6) at times through the English Channel, nearer NNE 12-15kt (F4) in much of Scotland and Ireland, although 20-25kty (F5-F6) on eastern coasts of Scotland.



A ridge of high pressure slips east through Sunday, and the atmosphere over much of the UK becomes more stable.

There could still be some showers affecting southeast England in the morning, but elsewhere the day should start fine with some good spells of sunshine.

A few showers may bubble up across parts of northern England in the afternoon, but for most the afternoon should stay dry with well broken cloud and good visibility.

Winds will be mainly N-NNE 2-6kt (F2-F3) in much of Scotland and Ireland, 10-14kt (F3-F4) for most of England and Wales, but N-NNE 18-23kt (F5-F6) over the far southeast of England.
