regular on british television where he said the key to commentary was never to take it too seriously. it has enormous rewards, great sadness, great joy, great stupidity. great nonsense, you know. and it's really not all that serious. for all his fans, he did have his critics. might be a bit of a handful, those three. to some, he was the epitome of old—fashioned attitudes in a game in need of modernisation. i try to be an observer. you get into trouble sometimes if you don't say the right things to the right people. but there was never any debate about his expertise. he's played it boldly. that could be magical. when the world's greatest golfers produced their greatest moments, alliss was the perfect guide. thank you. he was a great man in many respects. for his commentary, he came and took over from henry longhurst who was regarded as the doyenne of commentary. but peter took the mantle over and, to be honest, no one got near him.
only last month he was commentating for the bbc on the masters, broadcasting from home due to the pandemic. that is ok. lovely feeling, five ahead, umpteen putts for victory, glory be. his excitement was undimmed, even after almost 60 years as golf‘s master storyteller. so, a rather strange masters has come to an end. it is not what we expected but it was still a good one. well done to everybody, and here's to next april when we'll do it all again. peter aliss, who has died at the age of 89. that's all for me in the sports team. there is lots more on the bbc website. but for me and the team, good night.
well, it's quiet on the weather front, so not an awful lot of change on the way for tomorrow. as far as the week is concerned, it is going to stay on the chilly side, but there are signs that as we head towards the end of the week, it's going to turn a little less cold. so this is the satellite picture. we are in between weather systems, you can see clouds out in the atlantic also in central parts of europe. we are in this sort of clearer slot here, so there has actually been some sunshine around, some of us have been stuck underneath the fog. but the cold air is with us, notjust across the uk but many parts of western and also central europe. so the pattern remains the same for tonight and into monday, clear skies, so frost forming here and there, and of course, you've got the fog in some areas as well where it's already lingered all through the day, all through sunday. city centre temperatures overnight falling to around freezing, outside of town, it will be around three degrees colder than that in rural spots.
so the fog tomorrow in the south and southeast, but actually, for many of us, a lot of bright weather, certainly around the irish sea, belfast, glasgow, though western isles, once again, some sunshine there. four, five, six degrees, then we're watching this weather front in the north sea. that's going to reach the north coast of england and also scotland through the evening. there will be a bit of mountain snow here, but notice that in the south of the country overnight into tuesday, it actually stays clear. so it's low pressure, it will anchor itself across scotland during the course of tuesday. so the weather is going to be unsettled here, often cloudy, not the sunshine that we've had in the last day or so. you can see the low, the winds spiralling around it, and also some very strong winds, possibly up to gale force around some of these coasts. to the south of that, the weather will be better, drier, brighter, less windy, it will feel more pleasant. but it's going to be fairly chilly, temperatures a, 5, 6 degrees, wherever you are, really. just that little bit milder eight or 9 degrees. now, on wednesday, we are ahead
of a weather system here, actually, it should be fairly quiet. not much happening on the weather front through the middle part of the week. but towards the end of the week, there is just a hint that those temperatures will start to recover, so it's going to be a good deal milder, but you will notice it possibly up to around double figures on the south coast and in southwestern parts of the uk. that's it from me.
this is bbc news. the headlines at eight. the uk's chief negotiator is back in brussels to resume brexit talks, with time running out to do a deal. we are going to see what happens in negotiations today and we will be looking forward to meeting our european colleagues later on this afternoon. croydon university hospital becomes one of the first to take delivery of the coronavirus vaccine in the uk — with the firstjabs set to be given on tuesday. obviously, i can't hold them in my hands because they are minus 70 degrees but you know they are here and we are amongst the first in the country to receive the vaccine and therefore the first in the world, i am so therefore the first in the world, i am so proud. overcrowding on its opening day forces nottingham's christmas market to close early.
