Weather forecast for the week ahead

Issued: 19th September 2022 17:17

We've seen some chilly nights recently, but the chill will disappear over the next few days, as an anticyclone moves away eastwards towards mid-week introducing somewhat warmer conditions from France.

Apart from some rain in the far North West, Tuesday and Wednesday sees an anticyclone giving a lot of dry, fine weather across Britain with light winds. There'll be sunny spells and as winds turn into a southerly quarter by Wednesday it'll become warmer as temperatures reach the early to mid 20's Celsius across the East and South. But don't expect a heatwave, as we're into the autumn now. And unlike last week, the southerly wind will be largely devoid of tropical storm remnants, as the hurricane season across the North Atlantic and the Caribbean remains relatively quiet.

Later on Wednesday a cold front approaches Northern Ireland and North West Scotland, bringing freshening winds and some rain. Thursday sees this front working its way  slowly South and East across the country, although much of the day across a large portion of England and Wales should continue fine and warm. There's some suggestion that the front may weaken or slow down as it comes, but not all models are  in agreement.

Friday probably sees a slack pressure regime across Britain as cooler weather tries to move in from the North West. There are uncertainties as to the timing of this however, making Friday the most difficult to predict. But it's almost certainly going to be unsettled and eventually cooler.

It could remain unsettled with showers particularly in the East into Saturday, but as pressure rises to the West the weather should improve again through next weekend but probably with a chilly North wind. As a result overnight grass frosts could return to some vulnerable rural areas although by Sunday, we should be seeing more in the way of sunny spells particularly in the West.
