A mixed month but some drier spells

A mixed September but one that will see some periods of higher pressure. These will be interspersed with lower pressure and spells of cloud and rain. Temperatures in the fairer weather are likely to be lower due to the northerly wind.

*29/8/15 - 4/9/15*
Thundery showers over the Bank holiday weekend, and perhaps breezy for a time too. Turning cooler into the middle part of the week with high pressure building to the west. This brings showers over more northern and eastern areas of the UK, these tending to fade.

*5/9/15 - 11/9/15*
The week is likely to be starting dry with sunny spells, although cool again. Rain affecting the north and west of Scotland and Ireland through the week, edging slowly southwards. It could be the middle of the week before the rain arrives in southern England.

*12/9/15 - 18/9/15*
Despite turning briefly milder, it is likely to become more unsettled this week. There will be rain, heavy at times and it should be windy too, especially in more northern and western areas.

*19/9/15 - 25/9/15
Probably becoming drier as the week progresses although starting unsettled with further spells of rain. It is likely to be cooler as the drier weather arrives from mid week on a northerly airflow.
