we have so much more for you here. the top business stories are next. low pressure has dominated the weather story so far this week and don't expect any significant change over the next few days to come. if you see skies like this, you will know what is coming, some pretty intense, possibly thundery, downpours are likely to continue, with the winds strongest in the far south—west. why? because you are closest to the centre of the low. and on that southern flank of the low is where we will see the strongest winds, maybe gusts in excess of 30 miles an hour at times, that will drive in the bands of showers around that low pressure, just like we've seen over the last few days. so, one band of intense rain clearing the far north of scotland, another hot on its heels behind, further showers pushing
5:27 am
into the south—west and some of these will move further inland as we go through the afternoon. blustery winds, particularly when you get the showers, but the strongest of the winds are likely to be down around the southwest. in terms of the feel of the weather, perhaps not quite as humid as the last couple of days, a little bit fresher, 15—21 degrees generally but we might, across eastern england, once again see highs across england of 23 celsius. into the evening, the risk of some sharp, thundery downpours coming in across the channel, particularly where we have seen the warmest of the weather but the story will slowly start to change. as we move out of wednesday into thursday, our area of low pressure will drift a little bit further east, centring itself across england and wales. the isobars open up, the winds will fall a little lighter and as a result we won't see quite as many organised bands of rain. yes, we have one band moving its way through north—east england and scotland but the showers are hit and miss across england and wales.
5:28 am
not all of us will see them, but if you do catch one or two of them, again it could be quite potent, top temperatures 15—21 celsius. moving out of thursday into friday and the start of the weekend, that low pressure finally starts to ease away. we'll see this little ridge of high pressure building from the west, mist and fog could become more of an issue as we get into the weekend with those lighter winds, those kind of autumnal conditions, but saturday into sunday certainly a drier story. in terms of the feel of the weather, not quite as humid but nevertheless still those the temperatures peaking in the low 20s. take care.
