Transcript

Hello and good morning! Well, we're off to a good start in the south this week, as most of the rain from the weekend has disappeared – just a few patches of cloud and maybe some showers here on the east coast. They'll all clear up by lunchtime, though. Over the next day or so, London and the area around Kent can expect a couple of isolated showers, but mostly dry through until Thursday.

It's not such good news for the north-west this week, I'm afraid: more wet weather, and not a lot of sunshine. Some of today's showers will be heavy – and even thundery in Manchester and across the Pennines. Leeds will escape the thunderstorms, with drizzle and light rain only throughout the rest of the day and tonight.

Elsewhere it becomes dry today, but with some foggy patches towards Wales. In England, tomorrow morning will see a dry, bright start in most places, with high temperatures throughout the week. We might see one or two thunderstorms appearing as the week goes on, with temperatures everywhere at 29 to 30 degrees. 

By the weekend, unfortunately, the dry weather will make way for mostly cloudy skies and rain. The rain will move from Scotland, down towards the north and reach the south coast by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures, at least, will stay mostly warm at around 21 degrees for the weekend. It might feel like a nice change from the high twenties and early thirties we'll see in the week. That's all from me until tomorrow. Enjoy the mini-heatwave while you can!

What kind of weather do you like best? I like the autumn, because it has very nice cool breeze that you can feel for soothing pleasure. Also autumn leaves are very beautiful, which you can feel pleasant and romantic. That sounds me like a poetry and romantic guy ;)

For me the best wether is when it's not so hot, because it's seem I can't breathe. I prefer when it's between 20 and 28 degrees and it's sunny so I can go to the beach, for instance.

In africa we have most of time in the year a heatwave. 21 degrees is so cold for us. So we feel more confutable with 30 degrees.

I prefer cold, because in that kind of weather if you move yourself you can be very confortable and if you are at home only with heating you would pass a very good time as well.
