the weather is dishing up something significantly colder than we've been used to of late as we head towards the weekend. the winds switching round to northerlies. we'll see some sunshine, yes, but there'll be some showers as well and some of those showers over hills in the north will be a little bit wintry. the cold air is going to be coming from a long way north. the winds bringing that air down from the arctic behind this cold front. the front‘s through friday morning, bringing a band of cloud and patchy rain across central and southern parts of england, the south of wales. behind that, the skies will brighten. yes, we'll see some sunshine, but some showers will start to pack in on the brisk northerly wind, particularly across northern scotland, down the east coast of england, some for northern ireland into parts of wales and maybe the far southwest as well. the showers over hills in the north will be wintry. temperatures at best between 6—12 degrees.
1:56 am
so we spend friday night, all of us, in that cold air. some showers most likely around the coast, but perhaps further inland for a time. snow levels across scotland coming down to around 250 metres, so quite a few hills across the northern half of scotland could seek a little bit of snow and temperatures through the night into the first part of saturday morning dropping very close to freezing. there could be some icy stretches. so a similar sort of day on saturday. a bright day for many. lots of sunshine around, but those showers most plentiful across parts of northern and western scotland. some at this stage starting to spill into eastern england, perhaps moving inland into the midlands, and a few for west wales, the southwest, also for northern ireland. the winds will be noticeable. a brisk northerly wind, so while the thermometer will read 6—11 degrees, not particularly impressive, if you add on the strength of the wind, it will feel like this. in aberdeen, it'll feel like it's just a degree above freezing. maybe five for the "feels like" temperature in cardiff. now on sunday, the wind direction shifts subtly
1:57 am
more to a northeasterly, so that will confine most of the showers to eastern areas. further west, it should be largely drier, i suspect with some spells of sunshine, but still not particularly warm with those temperatures between 8—12 degrees. but a bit of a change on the way as we head into next week. a frontal system which could bring rain into the west, but more likely will see rain from this area of low pressure which is going to spin its way up from the near continent. so there's the potential for some wet and some windy weather at times as we head on into next week, but slowly but surely, it should turn a little bit less chilly. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. our top stories: federal agents search a mail office in florida as the us steps up the hunt for whoever is behind a series of bombs sent to leading democrats. saudi arabia admits for the first time the murder of the journalist jamal khashoggi was premeditated. the cia director will brief
