October is turning into another very mild month but there could be a break in the above average temperatures for a while next week. In the shorter term the weekend prospects are mixed.

This morning it's a dry start for many but in central and western Scotland as well as western parts of Northern Ireland it is wet and windy. Not cold anywhere with temperatures mostly in the 7C (45F) to 12C (54F) range.

During Saturday there will be further rain in the north west and possibly some showery outbreaks in Wales and western parts of England this afternoon. In central and eastern regions drier and brighter conditions are likely to continue. Check the rainfall radar for the latest view.

In north western parts of the UK it will be a very windy day with gales and close to average temperatures. Further south east it's a much calmer and milder picture.

Tomorrow looks very similar with more wet weather in the north west. The south east of the UK should remain mostly dry but there is likely to be more cloud than today.

Next week is expected to start with very mild and and dry conditions in the south and temperatures could approach 20C (68F) for a while. In the north west it remains unsettled and during Tuesday colder air could begin moving southwards to cover much of the country for a time. Cloud and rain are then expected to return from the west through the second half of the week.
