10:54 pm
welsh fire collapsed from 75—1to127—9, including losing their last six wickets for 23 runs in a 21—ball spell. chasing 128 to win, verma smashed an unbeaten 76 off 42 balls, after bringing her up her 50 withjust 22 balls, the 17—year—old hitting nine fours and two sixes. and andy murray has been added to the main draw for the us open after former champion stan wawrinka withdrew. murray pulled out of the men's singles at the tokyo olympics last month with a thigh strain, but was able to play in the doubles alongsidejoe salisbury, where they reached the quarterfinals. murray won the us open back in 2012. and that's all the sport for now. from me and the rest of the team, bye—bye. well, many of us have had to endure

days of torrential showers, the grass has sodded. what has happened to august, we wonder? i've got some good news — tuesday is looking sunnier and warmer than of late across most of the uk, not absolutely everywhere. we still have a few showers in the forecast in the short term. here's the unsettled weather recently. you can see the clouds spiralling across the uk, but we've got a gap in the weather. it's called a ridge of high pressure. there's a low which is heading our way, as well, but this ridge is going to settle things down on tuesday. so, what's tuesday, 6 in the morning looking like? a lot of fine, bright, if not already sunny weather across the uk. 13 degrees in london, 10 degrees in glasgow, just the stray shower here and there. how about the rest of the morning into the afternoon? so, lots of sunshine, especially across england and wales. in scotland, we are anticipating downpours and thunderstorms to form over the highlands, and they'll probably drift
10:56 pm
towards the east coast, and there's a chance of a few scattered showers just close to the north sea coasts and maybe one or two other areas. but other than that, it is going to be a predominantly sunny day with scattered fairweather clouds, light winds, and very pleasant temperatures. i suspect they will probably hit around 2a celsius in one or two spots on tuesday. now, here's a look at wednesday's weather map. a low is approaching with its weather front — here's the low out there. the weather front is approaching western areas of the uk, so the weather will go downhill. out towards the west on wednesday, you can see the rain sweeping in — this is the morning in northern ireland, western parts of scotland, and other western extremities also getting the cloud and rain, and a bit of a breeze, too. but eastern areas in the southeast should, at the very least, stay bright and actually quite warm in norwich, up to 2a — that's because, ahead of weather fronts, we quite often have a southerly wind that's strengthening the breeze — not strong, just a light summer breeze keeping those temperatures high enough. now, the weather front moves
10:57 pm
through the uk on thursday, but notice there's hardly any rain on the weather front, it's literallyjust a line of cloud. that will introduce just slightly fresher conditions to western areas here, but staying warm in the southeast, up to around 2li—25 celsius. but in the northwest, closer to the centre of the low pressure, it will stay wet and, at times, windy.
