Turning breezy and cloudy Tuesday, showers then rain arriving later.
Today: Sunny start for most places but then becoming cloudy and breezy with scattered showers, these especially for the afternoon and possibly heavy. Late afternoon heavy rain reaches western areas. Maximum Temperature 18C.
Tonight: Heavy rain moving eastwards this evening with most parts dry by the early hours. However, further showers are possible later in the night. Clear spells developing in the south. Minimum Temperature 7C.
Wednesday: A bright start to the day, however cloud and showers will develop during the morning, though there will still be lengthy sunny spells, especially later. Maximum Temperature 15C.
Outlook for Thursday to Saturday: A very unsettled spell of weather with showers or longer spells of rain, these sometimes heavy or thundery. Temperatures slightly below average. Windy, with coastal gales at times.
UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Oct 2021 to Monday 11 Oct 2021: A low pressure system to the north of the UK will dominate during the start of this period, bringing heavy rain and isolated thunderstorms for all. Thereafter, further low pressure systems will affect the UK, particularly northwestern areas. This will bring organised bands of rain, heavy at times, interspersed with cooler and showery periods but some sunny spells too. Drier and more settled conditions are likely across southern and eastern parts of the country, but there is still a chance that bands of rain and strong winds from the north and west could extend into these areas. The temperatures are most likely to be slightly below average for this time of the year during the start of the period, but will gradually return to near average later.
UK Outlook for Tuesday 12 Oct 2021 to Tuesday 26 Oct 2021: Confidence is typically low during this period, but the most likely outcome is for high pressure to dominate in the south, leading to drier and more settled conditions over these areas. In the north, lower pressure is likely to prevail, with these areas seeing the wettest weather. However, there is a chance of settled conditions becoming more prevalent across most of the UK for a time. Temperatures are more likely to be around or slightly above average.
