Wednesday sees the start of the transition with developments in the western Atlantic but the immediate effect closer to home is to realign our high cell which becomes more influential, thus winds abating in the north and resulting in a generally fine day with sunny intervals and relatively warm. Still some patchy rain across the west coast of Scotland
By Thursday the transition is well underway with the trough over the eastern seaboard initiating rapid amplification of the subtropical high in the western Atlantic which in turn facilitates the trough and cold air to plunge south to the north of Scotland. So that by midday the cold front is just about across the north coast of Scotland. Thus rain will spread down the west coast and to N. Ireland during the afternoon whilst the rest of the country again remains dry with sunny intervals.
Overnight and through Friday the cold front will track south reaching the south by the afternoon leaving in it's wake much colder air in a very strong northerly wind which could touch gale force in the north and north east. In this very unstable air frequent heavy showers will develop which will be wintry in the north with snow on the high ground and possible even at low levels. It goes without saying it will feel very cold.
And the NH profile at T120 sums it all up
