1:51 am
lampard is can ask me again. why the caution? lampa rd is still can ask me again. why the caution? lampard is still a managerial beginner, just a single season at derby county. for all his success as a player, this is some challenge for frank lampard, as leslie is chelsea are currently serving a transfer ban which means the new manager can't buy any new players. for all that, though, the fans are right behind him. it's going to bring motivation and that extra desire because he's such a legend. he has such a status in the club. he doesn't have the coaching experience but i think his playing experience will lend itself very nicely. i hope it works, i really do, i wish him well. would you say this is the biggest challenge for you? yes. my playing career is done, great memories and challenges along the way, i always love the challenge. he's been through ten managers in 5015 years, most recently maurizio sarri, the unproven lampard is a gamble, but

team, goodbye. hello there. if you were looking for the warmest, sunniest weather on thursday, you had to turn your eyes southwards. the further south you went, the bluer the skies remained. a bit of wispy, high cloud overhead in london, but temperatures in the london area got very close to 27 degrees. compare and contrast that with the scene for this weather watcher in ullapool, in north—west scotland. grey, murky, damp, temperatures at 13 degrees. and similar rules apply through the day ahead. the best of the sunshine to be found across central and southern parts of the uk. further north, more cloud, some patchy rain, some mist and murk, especially for hills and coasts in the west. and then some heavy rain returning to northern and western scotland later in the day, where it will also be quite breezy. so let's take a closer look. lots of sunshine for the channel islands, southern england, wales, the midlands, east anglia, temperatures 23 in plymouth, 2a degrees for cardiff, 27 once again across the london area. but some extra cloud will push
1:56 am
in across north wales in north—west england, north—east england, to the east of the pennines should hold onto at least a little bit of brightness through the day. northern ireland turning pretty grey, rain pepping up again across western scotland through the afternoon. but, with some shelter for the mountains in eastern scotland, aberdeen down to edinburgh, we should hold onto a little bit of brightness and temperatures around 18 degrees. now that cloud and rain which has been plaguing northern areas will start to move its way southwards during friday night. behind it, the skies will start to clear across scotland and ahead of that band of cloud and patchy rain we'll keep some clear skies in the south as well. temperatures as we start saturday between 10—15 degrees. that band of cloud and patchy rain will start off the weekend across northern england and northern ireland, associated with this, a cold front. you can tell it's a cold front by the blue triangles here. and behind that cold front, well, the air turns cooler and fresher.
1:57 am
but the front is likely to drag its heels, though, there will be a zone of cloudy here and potentially damp weather. i'm not expecting huge amounts of rain, that will sink across parts of east anglia, the midlands, wales. to the south—east coast of england, we are likely to hold onto some sunshine and warm all day long. temperatures could get to around 2a degrees. but to the north of the band of cloud and patchy rain, it will be cold and fresher although, it will be largely dry with some sunny spells. and all of us get into that fresher regime on sunday. the front will have cleared away by this stage, there will be some fairly large areas of cloud floating around, some spells of sunshine, just a small chance of one or two showers. and those temperatures ranging from 13 degrees in aberdeen to a high of 22 in cardiff.
