It’s a fine end to your workweek with plenty of warm sunshine, especially the further East you are. Tonight starts off fine with plenty of dry conditions and overnight temperatures will dip to between 10-14C. Through the overnight a rather potent front will advance from the west and this will present heavy rain which spreads west to east through the early hours of Saturday and this will be accompanied by strong southerly winds which will be gale-force along the West Coast.

Through Saturday morning into the early afternoon, the heavy rain band spreads east and by afternoon it back to sunshine and blustery showers in the West. By evening, the front will have cleared the East Coast but I suspect it will still be blustery through the day. Highs 16-19C.

Sunday will be another day of sunshine and showers will a stiff, brisk westerly wind. Highs pegged back to 16 or 17C widely, perhaps a touch warmer in the sheltered East.

More sunshine and showers to come Monday and remaining cool in the brisk westerly wind.

It’s a largely fine end to your Friday across the bulk of England with a few scattered showers around. Into this evening and it turns clear for many but staying mild with lows between 12-15C.

Through the second half of the night, rain and an increasing southwest wind will push into Western counties and through Saturday morning into the afternoon except rain to spread right across the country. Winds will be fresh everywhere with exposed areas in the North and along the South and Southwest coast perhaps seeing gale-force gusts.

Into tomorrow evening it the front should be clearing the Kent coast with the bulk of the country dry and with lighter winds although a few showers can’t be ruled out in the wake of the front.

Sunday looks much better with plenty of warm sunshine on offer and just a slight risk of a few showers through the afternoon. Highs range from 17C in the Northwest to 22C in the Southeast and always that bit breezier and fresher the further north you go.

Monday will see high pressure build in from the south and that’s a sign of things to come next week. Highs 19-24C with lots of sunshine.


It’s a beautiful end to the week right across the country with plenty of warm sunshine to enjoy out in your garden with temperatures hovering in the 20-23C range. Through the overnight and conditions quickly deteriorate as a front attached to a deep lows spreads a band of rain across the country and with it comes strong winds for all out of the SW.

Saturday starts off wet and very windy with coastal gales and it will be more like an autumn day and a big contrast to today. Temperatures will remain up despite the wind and rain with highs climbing to 21, possibly 22C thanks to the warm direction in which the wind is blowing from. Tomorrow evening and most if not all turns drier with perhaps some evening brightness.

Sunday is much better with a lot less wind. Highs 19-22C.

Monday will see a ridge build in and that promotes a warm and sunny start to the new work week.

Northern Ireland

It’s a decent end to your Friday across Ulster with some decent spells of sun mixed with a few showers and temperatures in the range of 16-20C.

Conditions quickly go down hill into the dark hours of night as a front swings in from the Atlantic and this will bring a wet night along with a strengthening southwest wind.

Through the first half of Saturday expect a wet and windy one with gales possible along the North coast but through the afternoon the rain will have cleared the East coast and so it should be a better afternoon with a mix of sun and showers but those winds will remain unusually brisk veering westerly into the evening.

Sunday as well as Monday will be a mixed bag of sun and showers. Feeling fresher with a strong westerly wind blowing.


A decent end to your week will be interrupted by a spell of wet and windy weather tonight as a front associated with an area low pressure more suited to October swings in from the Atlantic.

Saturday will see the rain band quickly clear, likely most areas by 9am and the rest of the day will be dominated by sunshine and brisk showers driven in by a strong SW wind which will gradually veer westerly.

Sunday will be much like mid to late Saturday with sunshine, showers and windy conditions. Feeling cool in the wind with highs of 16-20C.

Monday will see the best of the sun, lightest winds and warmest temperatures across the South where it may get up into the 21-23C range but head further north and the westerly wind is fresh and showers will be driven in by that wind. Highs in the North closer to 17C.
