The Weather forecast
(sung in the form of an Anglican chant)
Good morning, here is the Weather Forecast
For today until midnight
First the general situa-cion
A ridge of high pressure over the Azores is moving slowly northeast
And will begin to affect southwestern districts of the British Isles
by late evening

The cold front now affecting south-east districts
Will gradu-ally move north
Fog has develo-ped overnight in much of England and parts of Wales
In some districts it is rather dense
This will lift and clear by mid-morning almost everywhere
And the rest of the day will be fine with unbroken sunshine

And now, here is the Shipping Forecast for the next twenty-four hours
Viking, Forties, Cromarty, Forth, Tyne, Dogger, Fisher, German Bight, Humber, Thames, Dover, White, Portland, Plymouth, Biscay, Finistere, Sole, Lundy, Fastnet, Irish Sea, Shannon, Rockall, Malin, Hebrides, Bailey, Fair Isle, Faeroes, South East Iceland
Will continue to be affected by weather for several days

Now the outlook for Wednesday and Thursday
There will be drizzle in the south
And periods of continuous rain are expected later
Intersper-sed with scatter-red showers (Sound of rain)

Northern England, Northern Ireland and Southern Scotland
Will have occasional thunder (Sound of thunder)
Temperatures will fall during the night
And there may be local showers of sleet or snow

Over Central Scotland, temperatures will fall rapidly at dusk
Giving rise to hail and freezing fog
Heavy snowfalls are expected in the north of Scotland
And gale force winds are likely to cause extensive drifting

In the extreme north of Scotland a warm air stream
Will bring torren-cial rain and widespread flooding
(Sounds of wind and rain)
In brief, the weather will be normal for the time of year
