Through the remainder of September the weather should stay largely settled with long spells of sunshine and generally light winds. Northern and northwestern areas may be more changeable at times, with stronger winds and some outbreaks of rain, which may occasionally extend a little further south and east.

Southern parts are likely to see the driest weather, but some wet and windy weather is possible in the north.

Generally settled and drier conditions are likely to dominate across many parts of the UK during the beginning of this period, particularly across the south.

Temperatures are likely to be near normal to locally warm at times, but overall colder than normal.
