After a very mild weekend for many of us, Monday is looking even milder. The reason is that our air has come from the sub-tropics, though of course the air will have been modified as it crosses the Atlantic, losing a good deal of it's warmth. With some sunshine on Monday, we're likely to see 16 °C somewhere in southern or eastern England, that's around 9 °C above average for this time of year.

Different air masses bring us different types of weather. It’s turning colder this week because of a polar continental air mass.

Colder weather on the way?

Temperatures are going to drop this week as cold air is dragged in from the east. It'll stay mostly dry though as high pressure dominates.
This satellite loop shows a beautiful example of low pressure winding up in the Atlantic. This system won't affect us directly but fronts in association with it will bring #wind and #rain for many today.

It’s going to be wet and windy for the rest of the week, but stories of #StormDoris being named are premature
