After over 10 days of reasonably dry and quite settled weather for late September we have seen a change in the last 24 hours.
Thursday seems set to be a wet day generally with rain at times, some of which will be heavy, with a strong southerly wind. Some areas may have a dry start though. Mild to warm for October with highs of 17’C and feeling muggy.
Friday sees the weather start to become settled again as the day progresses. Still a day of showers, with some brighter spells and breezy. Becoming fresher from the west. Highs of 16’C.
It then looks like high pressure will take charge again, building from the south-west and the weather will settle down.
Saturday may just have an early rogue shower but the day looks set to be cloudy with bright spells and although fresher it will be pleasant for the time of year. Highs of 16’C.
Sunday again looks reasonable. It should be dry with fair amounts of bright spells and light winds. Highs of 18’C in some favoured parts.
Looking ahead next week it remains settled and temperatures will be above average for October.
