BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor said a short-lived weather system will bring in milder air into the UK, pushing thermometers to as high as 15 degrees for some this weekend. But he warned conditions are to turn colder once again as another front moves into the country bringing in heavy rain and potential snow as well as gales for Scotland and Northern Ireland. Mr Taylor said: “For some tonight will be a little bit milder than we’ve seen through the day.

“An incredibly mild to Saturday, we’ve got those winds still coming in from mid-Atlantic.

“Notice a weather system which will spread across northern Scotland bringing some strong winds, heavy rain, turning the weather front southwards during Saturday and then introducing a flow of colder air.

“Saturday starts off pretty mild but will turn a little bit cooler. This is the dividing line, a narrow band of heavy rain which will push its way southwards.

“Cloudy to the south of it, brightening up to the north, temperatures starting to drop through the afternoon.”

He continued: “We will see things turn that bit sunnier but it will be a windy afternoon.

“It’s across parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland where we see the strongest of the winds – 60mph, 70mph gusts possible for one or two.

“That will take the feel of things even colder than the 6C suggestion in the afternoon, 14C, 15C in the south.

“Through to Sunday morning, the strongest of the winds in Orkney and Shetland will clear away, lighter winds, touch of frost around but the next weather system is coming in for Sunday.

“In fact, into the evening, there is potential for damaging winds across parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland especially. One to keep an eye on.”

Before conditions grow colder this weekend, however, the BBC Weather forecaster noted Britons south of Scotland will most likely experience mild conditions through Friday.

He said: “After a bright start with some hazy sunshine, you’ll all notice the cloud rebuilding.

“The cloud we’ve got at the moment is just high cloud but this cloud here, which as the way into the Atlantic, will bring some rain to northern Scotland while dragging in that milder air all the way from the Azores, so temperatures will gradually rise throughout the day.

“This morning, it’s a dry start for the morning commute in most areas, but it’s going to turn wetter as we go through the day in the far north of Scotland.

“Could see a few splashes of light rain further south as the cloud thickens up, some damp, drizzly weather around western coasts and hills in England and Wales.

“Most away from the north of Scotland will stay dry, still some spells of hazy sunshine around the east. Not as mild as yesterday, but temperatures continue to climb.”
