But the eyes that peered at me
Remain in the weeds

GENERAL SYNOPSIS
Extended high 1022‑1025 hpa, Alps to Carpathian Ridge and further to Baltic Lands, refocusing over the Eastern Scandinavian on Monday. Low system whirling between Iceland, Norwegian Sea and Northern British Isles. • Fair weather today, becoming warm in the valley and very mild in the median altitude range. • Broken cloud patches coming in from the west towards the evening and of very high veiling cloud as well. • The high pressure shielding will indeed be temporarily knocked over by a weak thalweg linked to the above mentioned low system; then pressure will increase again as soon as Tuesday morning. • Fairly changeable weather to be expected therefore on Monday, with a very light shower risk, probably . Improving fairly sunny on Tuesday.
