Wet autumnal weather. Posted by brian gaze

High pressure has been the dominant feature of the weather recently, but things are set to change during the coming days. All regions can expect wet and windy periods as pressure falls and an Atlantic flow returns. It will also become very mild for a time, but later in the week temperatures fall back.

Unsettled outlook

Tuesday is looking mixed. Heavy spells of rain are possible in southern and central Britain. There could also be be rain in the north west. Elsewhere there should be dry periods. Windy but very mild. Temperatures could reach 20C (68F).

During Wednesday strong winds and outbreaks of rain are expected to be a risk in much of the UK. Forecast details are uncertain but there is a possibility of gales, particularly in coastal counties.

Changeable weather is forecast for the second half of next week. Wet and windy conditions pull away eastwards and then colder Arctic air may move southwards for time. A ridge of high pressure probably builds from the west to bring a drier interlude, but it probably won't be long before disturbances from the Atlantic begin to return.
