A showery few days with some sunny spells.
A largely unsettled day with sunny spells and heavy showers moving quickly across the country. Windy, especially in the south. Temperatures around average for the time of year, but feeling colder in the wind and around the showers. Maximum temperature 14 °C.
Many of the heavy showers will die out overnight leaving drier conditions with some clear skies. Some scattered showers will linger in coastal areas and over the hills until dawn. Minimum temperature 6 °C.
A drier day than Friday with plenty of sunny spells, though some scattered showers still likely. Lighter winds than of late. Maximum temperature 14 °C.
Some showers on Sunday then a more settled start to the new week, with plenty of sunshine. The odd shower likely in coastal areas as well as possible fog patches.
Tuesday should be mostly sunny, with some coastal showers in the south and outbreaks of rain and strong winds expected in the northwest. Looking ahead, the unsettled theme is set to continue for a brief period in the northwest with blustery showers and longer spells of rain. There should then be some longer episodes of more settled weather with bright and sunny spells mainly in the central, southern and eastern areas of the UK. The fine conditions should spread into the northwest towards the end of October. Temperatures should remain around average for this time of the year, which means there could be potential for overnight frost or fog on clear nights, but it may feel milder in any sunshine during the day.
The beginning of November looks to be largely settled and dry for most areas with a mixture of cloud and sunshine. Any spells of rain are likely to be confined to the far northwest. Clear conditions at night may allow temperatures to fall a little below average with overnight frosts and fog patches likely. Towards the middle of the month, there is a chance of more unsettled conditions with some rain or showers possible at times, however there is high uncertainty this far ahead.
There are four seasons in the year in the UK, but what causes them and how do they affect us?Read more
