Back to shorter range though, and with high pressure taking charge autumn is delivering one of the more summery spells we've seen all year. It's a little more cloudy across the country today though as a weakening front heads south but even still temperatures will get up into the high teens of low twenties - perhaps even the mid-twenties in the southeast and there should still be some sunnier spells to be had.
The exception to that rule today, and in fact on many days through the week will be the north and west of Scotland, here it's cloudier still with some light rain about. Temperatures here will struggle to get into the mid-teens.
Tomorrow will again see some cloud across the country - this time it's the west which will see the majority of it - further east there should be a good deal of sunshine about but after a chilly night temperatures will be a touch down with 17-20c the typical high.
Into Thursday - for England and Wales it's a pretty similar day with sunny spells and temperatures of 18-21c typical. Scotland sees a different picture though with rain moving in from the northwest during the day - it'll be heaviest in northern and western regions, fading as it heads further south and east. But with the extra cloud about temperatures will be suppressed.
By Friday that front will be much weakened but still likely to be across southern Scotlandm northern England and Ireland so more in the way of cloud expected here with the potential for a few spits of light rain. Elsehwhere it's more of the same with warm, sunny spells.
Into the weekend, with the high pressure becoming more dominant, barring the far north of Scotland all parts are likely to stay dry and warm with highs heading back up toward the mid-twenties.
