A rather autumnal feel to the weather today, especially over the northern half of the UK - where it will be rather windy with a mixture of sunshine and showers. Winds this morning are likely to gust to 50-60mph across central and southern parts of Scotland and northern England which will drive blustery showers in from the west during the day behind area of patchy rain moving southeast across northern England and southern Scotland this morning, some showers will be on the heavy side - especially across Scotland. As a result it will be on the cool side with temperatures reaching 15-16 °C at best in the north, winds should ease during the afternoon. It will be quieter across southern areas with a mainly dry day across southern counties of England with good sunny spells. For Wales, central and eastern England it will start sunny but cloud will increase during the day with a risk of showers or longer spells of rain moving down from the NW. Cooler than of late across central and southern England and Wales with a brisk wind, temperatures reaching 18 °C at best. Tonight, mainly dry and clear across southern and eastern England, patchy rain or showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland, showers near western coasts tending to move inland across Wales and northern England.
For Thursday, a day of sunshine and showers - showers most frequent over northern and western areas less frequent across the south and east of England - where there should be some good sunny spells. It will be on the cool side again with a brisk northwesterly wind. For Friday, perhaps drier with good sunny spells as high pressure builds in from the west though some showers developing but less widespread than Thursday, though still on the cool side.
For the weekend, at the moment it looks like a band of rain pushes south on Saturday across northern and central areas followed by showers in the north, though southern parts may stay dry and sunny. For Sunday, patchy rain clearing the south followed with sunshine and showers over the UK.
