8:30 pm
dr salima ikram, professor of egyptology at the american university in cairo, explained why this is such an important moment. i think, well, it's two reasons. one, of course, it emphasises national pride. we are seeing the last kings of egypt travelling through their capital city. and this gives everyone a chance to pay them their respects. but also, it's very important in terms of the economic future of egypt, because this also is related to tourism, and hopefully once corona is over, the pharaohs will be a draw for more tourists to come and visit egypt, and also raise awareness with the egyptians that they too can go and learn more about their history in this new museum. the reason that the royalty is being moved is that, in fact, several years ago, a plan was made that this new museum of egyptian civilisation would host them in a better, sort of, environment — more climate controlled, more space and with a new concept behind the display, so that the mummies would have
8:31 pm
more individual cases, a space for their history as well, artefacts that were found with them, their coffins as well as any objects. plus...information, so the ct scans as well as the x—rays will be accessible to the visitor. so this gives a more holistic view of the king or queen and their history and the history of their reign, as well as a health biography. now it's time for a look at the weather. hello there. you can see that window of clear skies across the country. the exception down through east anglia into south—east england, and eventually into north—west scotland. we are going to see more clout. that will keep those temperatures up. we could see a touch of light frost.
8:32 pm
the emphasis of the sunshine in a different place. as a consequence, some worked as well. by contrast, in the north—west of scotland, our affront arrives, bringing some rain and a noticeable difference to the feel of the weather behind it. that front thinks south, and by easter monday it is change for all. it is going to be a case of sunny spells and scattered showers, but it is going to be windy, cold arctic air, sleet and snow. hello this is bbc news with lukwesa burak. the headlines... new rules for care home visits in england. two people — as well as babies and young children — will be allowed indoor visits from 12th april. a woman who died after being attacked by 2 dogs who got into her garden through a hole in the fence — has been named as lucille downer — a great—grandmother from the west
8:33 pm
midlands. france has just entered its third national lockdown — non—essential shops and schools across the country are now shut, after a dramatic rise in coronavirus cases. the mummies of 22 ancient egyptian rulers have been transported through cairo in a spectacular display to move them to a different museum. now on bbc news weather world sarah keith—lucas and nick miller report on the latest weather stories, including a look at the role of climate change in last winter's severe weather in the uk and usa. this time on weather world, spring is in the air here in the uk. after a winter which delivered something increasingly rare — proper cold. the uk records its lowest february temperature in over 60 years. and texas, colder than alaska,
8:34 pm
we look at the science behind winter's big freeze. also on weather world... oh, my goodness. washed away, the shift in global weather patterns that have turned parts of australia wetter and wetter. plus carbon crisis — as levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide reach record postindustrial levels. it was only a matter of time. i'm not surprised. it's very sad, it's very— disappointing, but it's, you know, unless we do something about it, it is inevitable. _ and from the skies to the stars — what the rest of the year has in store for us astronomically. whether it's a solar eclipse or a shower of meteors, i will be letting you know when to look out for this year's celestial highlights.
8:35 pm
welcome to the latest weather world. our regular look at the stories and the science behind the weather that's been making the news. this time, nick and i are in london's regence park where all around us, there are signs that spring is about to break forth. and it's all very welcome to see, but it comes after a northern hemisphere winter which has at times delivered some extreme, and what is nowadays extremely unusual, cold weather. not possible, not a chance. that's ridiculous. february, and more than 30 cm of snow fell across parts of eastern england in the wake of storm darcy. the most significant snow here since 2018's infamous beast from the east. in scotland, the highland village of braemar is the joint holder of the uk's lowest temperature ever recorded, —27.2 celsius. in february, it dropped to —23 here. not a record, but still the uk's lowest february
8:36 pm
temperature since 1955. spells of extreme cold like this are becoming less frequent. the uk met office says in the 30 year period up to 1990, 1a years recorded a temperature below —20 celsius. since 1990, it's only happening four years. ——since 1990, it's only happened in four years. severe cold and heavy snow swept across the usa too, and it's hard to believe this is texas. this is no longerjust an emergency, it's clear that it is a disaster. at one stage, the entire state was under a winter storm warning and houston suffered its first—ever wind chill warning. dozens of people died, whilst power cuts and food shortages affected millions. i barely found bread, so everybody is getting stocked up. the shelves are becoming empty. in all, around 20% of observing sites across the usa logged all—time
8:37 pm
record minimum temperatures. but even though the country had its coldest february in more than 30 years, the winter as a whole was still warmer than average. this outbreak of severe cold across parts of north america and europe is linked to a natural phenomenon first discovered in the 19505, sudden stratospheric warming. up in the stratosphere, way above where our everyday weather happens, very cold air forms above the arctic during the winter months. strong westerly winds develop as the temperature difference between the air here and the equator increases. this is the polar vortex. but sometimes this pattern can break down, the winds can slow, even become easterly, and the air here can warm very rapidly, and the effects of that can then move down through the atmosphere, eventually impacting our weather. what you tend to get is a disruption in the wind pattern in the stratosphere which then filters downwards and can affect the jet stream,
8:38 pm
particularly in the mid—latitudes, and the wind directions here can become easterly, so often, we can get can winds coming from siberia and the continent. so a famous example from two or three years ago is the beast from the east, as it was known, where very cold winds from siberia came across the continent, picked a bit of moisture off the north sea and created quite a heavy snowfall in the eastern side of the uk. doctor hall says it's unclear whether sudden stratospheric warming events and their subsequent cold—weather outbreaks will become more or less frequent in the future due to climate change. but extreme warmth in the arctic region last summer may have played a role in this latest example of it. there were fires in siberia, it was very, very warm and siberia. the sea ice was very low on that side of the arctic ocean. it took a long time to recover, so you had a warm anomaly over there. it is possible that that could be linked with the sudden
8:39 pm
stratospheric warming, although, you know, the analysis has yet to be done on that. as global warming heats the arctic more quickly than at the equator, that could be having an impact on the jet stream. it could at times weaken, with some scientists saying it's more likely to wobble or meander, at times, taking cold air unusually far south, but further along its meandering path, take warm air unusually far north. as the usa froze, parts of europe had exceptional warmth, with several countries logging their highest february temperatures on record. but assessing how weather patterns that would naturally bring us spells of very cold weather are being affected by climate change is far from clear and still very much a work in progress. but no matter how hard the freeze, the thaw will come. that's something these skaters will remember from now on. the dutch capital, amsterdam,
8:40 pm
in february, and after the ice broke beneath them, bystanders offer rope, even hockey sticks to help them to safety. many of us noticed during the coronavirus pandemic that with reduced traffic levels, the air became a bit clearer, with less pollution, and indeed, emissions of carbon dioxide, a key greenhouse gas, did drop. but co2 levels are still rising in the atmosphere, and so far this year, the observatory in hawaii recorded daily levels of over a19 ppm, which might not sound like a lot, but that is in fact the highest reading ever recorded. the uk met office suggests that average co2 levels are now reaching 50% higher than they were before humans embarked on the industrial revolution. we have measurements of carbon dioxide from ice cores which go back 800,000 years. we have a record of how much co2 was in the atmosphere. we can see that we have more than 30% more carbon dioxide
8:41 pm
in the atmosphere nowadays then we have had at any time in the previous 800,000 years, which is nearly the entire human history. so we are well, well out of sync with the natural system. and the earth's extremes, the poles, are bearing the brunt of the global temperature rise that scientists say is largely due to increased concentrations of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. we have satellite measurements that go back to 1979, and there is this very, very fast decline in the extent of the sea ice in the arctic, and even now in the antarctic, we are starting to see the effects. we are seeing the west antarctic ice sheet areas thin where the ice is losing mass. it's actually being eroded from underneath by the warm ocean currents. so we are now seeing the effects of climate change basically in both polar regions. but of course, after that dip during the pandemic,
8:42 pm
carbon emissions are now rising again, as some of the hardest hit parts of the world start to relax restrictions and open up again. and now more than a year in, what more do we know about how the virus may be affected by weather and climate? that's a question i put to doctor rachel lowe from the london school of hygiene and tropical medicines. well, there have been some studies to suggest some modest associations between temperature and humidity and transmission. a lot of those studies didn't account for confounding factors such as government interventions and social economic differences. and the consensus to date is that the transmission has been very much driven by government interventions and human behaviour, and so we can't base any decisions about relaxing interventions on climate itself. doctor lowe says the spread of the virus in warm humid weather in brazil is proof that these conditions aren't significantly hindering it, and weatherfactors can only become more important when there is better global vaccine coverage and immunity, and covid—19 could settle
8:43 pm
into a seasonal pattern. now, more of the weather that's been making news recently starting with more snow. and this is spain injanuary as the capital, madrid, had its coldest weather in decades with record snowfall measuring more than 50 cm. in february, unusually heavy snow hit greece too, blanketing some of athens' famous landmarks. temperatures in the northwest of the country fell to —19 c. in africa injanuary, flooding in mozambique�*s second—largest city, hit by cyclone eloise, the second of three consecutive cyclones to impact the country in recent months. elsewhere in east africa, swarms of locusts are back with fears above average rainfall in late 20 20s rainy season has produced good breeding conditions for the insects once again. to the wind now, and the chinese
8:44 pm
capital, beijing, in march, covered in thick dust in what the weather bureau called the worst sandstorm in a decade, leading to a spike in air pollution with levels in some areas hitting 160 times the recommended limit. caught in a tornado — the terrifying moment these people drive into a storm in alabama in march. they escape ok as parts of the usa are hit by several rounds of severe storms bringing significant damage and destruction. oh, my god! and could the most expensive gust of wind in history be responsible for this? a container ship blown off course and blocking the suez canal in march. 12% of global trade is supposed to pass through here every day. now to this stunning frozen view from highland scotland injanuary,
8:45 pm
which was chosen as a bbc weather watcher pic of the winter season. to mark the fifth anniversary of weather watchers, the bbc in the east midlands invited viewers to say what's being being a weather watcher means to them. i do like weather watchers because it's interesting to see other people's photographs. you wake up in the morning, open the curtains, i've a camera beside the bed, you take a photograph, you go to the supermarket, you take a photograph on the way. you stop and capture the clouds, the sky. it gives you an excuse to sit down as well, take it in. _ i mean, there is nothing - like sitting down in the peaksjust looking out over the landscape. it'sjust really nice to do. and relaxing. it's obviously emphasis on the weather. - the light particularly- in photography is essential for a good landscape photograph, nearly always has _ a really nice light. probably some good - clouds, maybe even rain.
8:46 pm
you think the forecast is good, you know what you are to expect, you know where to go and you go for it. and when you've got that shot, you're just chuffed. and you can sign up to be a weather watcher by going to bbc.co.uk/weatherwatcher. yes, maybe your photo can be the next pic of the season. still to come on weather world... six years on from the historic paris climate accord, we look at what's next as the uk prepares to host a major international climate conference. 2020 was another hot year with nasa ranking it as the joint hottest hottest on record along with 2016. the uk met office calculated it as the second hottest. either way, all worrying enough in itself, but this heat came despite a global weather pattern that usually has a cooling influence. so what's going on? late 2020 saw the development of la nina in the tropical pacific ocean, a natural weather pattern with stronger easterly trade
8:47 pm
winds bringing cooler than average sea surface temperatures. the opposite to el nino, la nina can have a cooling effect across the globe, but it came too late this year to have much of an impact. since the start of this year, and its effects have become much more noticeable, especially here in australia, where in march, water cascades off this historic landmark. a massive deluge gives what the australian weather service describes as "phenomenal amounts of rain". oh, my goodness. in new south wales, the owners of this property should have been celebrating their wedding day, instead, they watch their home being washed away. even where they are used to floods at this time of year, they haven't seen things so bad. it's very shocking because i haven't seen it like this before. in 1990 was the last time i remember having a really big flood.
8:48 pm
we have had some where the bridges have gone under before, but not like this. la nina did what it normally does, bring cooler, wetter weather to eastern australia. a huge change from the last few hot summers here. last summer, when smoke j was blanketing entire cities like hamburg and sydney, no one could breathe, - no one could do anything, but at least this summer. we had that oxygen. so we knew coming out of winter. and going into spring that we were going to have a la nina summer. we didn't know how strong it would be, we didn't know- how strong the impact would be, but we knew that we would - have a wetter and cooler summer, . at least compared to a few summers summers that we've had over the last 9—10 years. - but even though la nina is a natural cooling weather pattern, doctor perkins kirkpatrick says evidence of climate change�*s warming influence can be found in this too. la nina that we are now experiencing is actually a lot warmer— than they would've been without climate change. | and on top of that, most i of the la nina's that we've experienced are warmer than the hot pattern which is the el nino -
8:49 pm
pattern, and that is . the brother to la nina. so, if we experienced la nina before the industrial revolution, _ it would've been a lot colder. and perhaps even a lot wetter than what we are actually. experiencing this summer. la nina means 2021 is not predicted to be a record hot year globally, but the uk met office still expects it to be the seventh year in succession where temperatures have exceeded or been close to one celsius above preindustrial levels. weather world is now in its seventh year, and this is our 18th programme. i can count onjust one hand how often we have been filming and it's dry, let alone sunny, so this really is a collectors item. what isn't so rare is how often we say on this programme, a warmer world doesn't necessarily mean a drier one. january, and the uk endures another round of winter flooding. this time, parts of greater manchester and cheshire are hardest hit as storm kristof sweeps through. my living room floor literally looks
8:50 pm
like a water bed because the waters gone straight under it. i've had to turn off all the electricity come all the gas, everything. it was another wetter than average winter in the uk, and as the climate warms, our atmosphere is being loaded to produce higher rainfall amounts. scientists say for every one celsius of warming, the air can hold 7% more moisture. the fact that we are increasing moisture also means that moisture is moving more effectively from the regions where it's evaporating to the regions where it's coming down as rain or snow. so this movement of moisture is actually making the water cycle not only more intense, but also more variable in the dryer regions, the atmosphere is almost becoming more thirsty because it's can hold more water. it's more greedy for that water and it's sucking it up more effectively, and moving back into a storm system,
8:51 pm
into monsoons, into the high latitudes where it can cause heavy rain. so in some senses, the warming of climate, because of increasing greenhouse gases, is causing a very dry event to become more dry as well as making very wet events become more wet. last october, the uk had its way to stay ever recorded. the uk met office says such a deluge without human—induced climate change should happen once every 300 years but by the end of this century under a medium greenhouse gas emissions scenario, it could happen every 30 years. later this year, leaders from around the world will gather here in the uk for the latest united nations climate change summit, cop26, having been postponed from last year due to the pandemic and without —— with pressure growing to further cut carbon emissions to illuminate little warming, it promises to be the most important meeting since the paris climate accord was signed in 2015. that landmark deal rocked a
8:52 pm
commitment to pursue efforts to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5 celsius above preindustrial levels. since then, the usa under donald trump became the usa under donald trump became the first nation to withdraw from that agreement. we don't want other leaders and other countries laughing at us any more. and they want to be. but now with president _ more. and they want to be. but now with president biden _ more. and they want to be. but now with president biden in _ more. and they want to be. but now with president biden in charge, - more. and they want to be. but now with president biden in charge, the. with president biden in charge, the country has rejoined. and appointed one of its most senior politicians, john kerry, as its climate and boy. glasgow will be extremely important, in fact, _ glasgow will be extremely important, in fact, i_ glasgow will be extremely important, in fact, i would say that in my judgment. _ in fact, i would say that in my judgment, it is the last best chance the world _ judgment, it is the last best chance the world has to come together in order_ the world has to come together in order to _ the world has to come together in order to do — the world has to come together in order to do the things we need to do to avoid _ order to do the things we need to do to avoid the — order to do the things we need to do to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis. in to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis.— the climate crisis. in the run-up to the climate crisis. in the run-up to the glasgow _ the climate crisis. in the run-up to the glasgow conference _ the climate crisis. in the run-up to the glasgow conference in - the climate crisis. in the run-up to . the glasgow conference in november, we have asked some delegates from around the world to give us their thoughts on what they wanted to achieve. —— want it to achieve. for

8:55 pm
agenda. think of it like trying to get your family to agree to a programme of action, so the host of the uk government has come out with a series of key priorities it wants from the conference or it would like every country in the world to make a commitment to going net zero by 2050. it wants to up the pace of carbon cuts that would like to see greenhouse gas emissions halved by 2030. ed also wants countries to say how they are going to adapt to the consequences of climate change. it wants richer countries to come up with £100 billion a year to help poorer countries adapt and make the transition to a lower carbon economy. now, that's a lot of cash and it is an ambitious agenda, and just like with your family, it is very hard to get everyone to agree, but that is the challenge for this conference and guys go in november this year. now, locked during the pandemic i've given some of us a renewed interest in the natural world around us, perhaps because we've had no choice but to spend more time in our local garden and
8:56 pm
local park. it's made it easierfor us to spot notable events in the night sky. now, last year's highlight was in december, the great conjunction, the closestjupiter and conjunction, the closest jupiter and saturn conjunction, the closestjupiter and saturn have appeared in the night sky in 800 years. so we thought we would have a look at what's coming up would have a look at what's coming up this year, and joining me as bbc weather presenter, elizabeth, who also provides forecasts for the bbc sky at night programme. with all things celestial in 2021.— sky at night programme. with all things celestial in 2021. there are some really _ things celestial in 2021. there are some really good _ things celestial in 2021. there are some really good conjunctions - things celestial in 2021. there are - some really good conjunctions coming up some really good conjunctions coming up this— some really good conjunctions coming up this year _ some really good conjunctions coming up this year. conjunctions, of course, — up this year. conjunctions, of course, very year on year because everything — course, very year on year because everything is moving in space. so it will always— everything is moving in space. so it will always appear to look a little bit different. conjunction from of course, — bit different. conjunction from of course, is — bit different. conjunction from of course, is when two or more celestial— course, is when two or more celestial object appeared to be close _ celestial object appeared to be close together in the night sky. so look out _ close together in the night sky. so look out for the morning of the sixth— look out for the morning of the sixth and — look out for the morning of the sixth and 7th of april do for saturn and the _ sixth and 7th of april do for saturn and the thin crescent moon. that's a bit too _ and the thin crescent moon. that's a bit too early — and the thin crescent moon. that's a bit too early for you, venus becomes an evening _ bit too early for you, venus becomes an evening planet and will see that in conjunction with mercury and,

finally, proving that it is notjust humans who get excited about snow, and acrobatic performance from a giant panda in washington, dc in february. next up, the olympics. that is all we have time for for this edition of weather world. you can watch clips from some of our previous programmes at bbc website. yes, you can watch when we went whiskey tasting in scotland. that was a good _ whiskey tasting in scotland. that was a good one. _ whiskey tasting in scotland. that was a good one. i'm _ whiskey tasting in scotland. that was a good one. i'm sure there is a link to weather and climate in there somewhere. we are back later in the air somewhere. we are back later in the ai , , ., air but untilthen, you can never aet air but untilthen, you can never get enough _ air but untilthen, you can never get enough pandas _ air but untilthen, you can never get enough pandas in _ air but untilthen, you can never get enough pandas in the - air but untilthen, you can never get enough pandas in the snow. j get enough pandas in the snow. so here are more. see you next time. goodbye!
8:59 pm
hello there. for those of you lucky enough to have blue sky and sunshine by day, well, that's going to translate into a pretty chilly night. and you can see that window of clear skies across the country, the exception then down through east anglia into southeast england and eventually into northwest scotland, we are going to see more in the way of cloud. that will keep those temperatures up. where we do get the breaks, particularly in rural areas, we could see a touch of light frost. at the emphasis for the sunshine on easter sunday in a different place than the last couple of days across england and wales, in particular eastern england, will see some sunshine and as a consequence, some 1000 well. by contrast, though come into the far northwest of scotland that front arrives bringing some rain, strengthening winds and a noticeable difference to the feel of the weather behind it. now, that french sinks south and by easter monday, it's a change for all. it is going to be a case of sunny spells and scattered showers, but it is going to be windy, cold arctic air,
9:00 pm
the showers will be sleet and snow. this is bbc news with the latest headlines for viewers in the uk and around the world. a spectacular procession in the streets of cairo — the mummies of 22 ancient egyptian rulers transported to a new resting place. more protests in germany against strict covid measures, as the country's president appeals for national unity. italy and france go back into an easter lockdown — as europe struggles with the latest wave of the coronavirus. and new rules for care home visits in england. two people — as well as babies and young children — will be allowed indoor visits from 12th april.
