Chilly, Showery and Blustery At Times
We've a real autumnal mix in the forecast for the coming few days with an over-riding chilly, unsettled and blustery theme.
Today we start with some strong winds affecting southern Scotland and northern England in particular, these easing through the morning and into the afternoon though. The showers will do the opposite though - becoming heavier and more widespread through the day - particularly through a similar region to the strongest winds earlier in the day. Elsewhere it's western and southern coastal regions most likely to catch a downpour, with central and eastern parts in with the best shot of staying dry with sunny spells. The showers could be heavy and thundery at times with hail in the mix too - along with sleet and snow over the hills of northern England and Scotland.
Saturday takes a very similar route, with blustery showers - wintry over the hills, heavy at times and most frequent in the west and south of the country. If you're off out to a fireworks display in the evening you've a decent chance of staying dry as many of the showers will die back to the coast - although southern Scotland and northern England could keep the wetter weather going. It will be chilly though so layer up well!
Into Sunday, it's another day of sunshine and showers, although we need to watch for a spell of more persistent rain pushing up into the southeast. Next week keeps the mixed spell of weather going..
