A fine start to the day with lots of sunshine in England, Wales and much of southern and eastern Scotland. Feeling warm in the sunshine too. Cloudier skies to the north and west of Scotland and over Ireland, perhaps with a few spots of drizzle on hills. This cloud will be breaking with sunny spells breaking through and then all parts having a fair and warm autumn afternoon. Increasing cloud in southwest England later bringing the risk of a shower this evening. A breezy day in a fresh to strong southeast wind. Highs at 24C in southeast England, 18C in western Scotland.
After a breezy, dry and warm start to the night for most, an area of showery rain will be edging northwards across England and Wales in the early hours. Drier to the north and east. Breezy in Ireland, mostly dry but with some rain reaches western Ireland later. Lows at 12 to 16C.
A southeast flow affects the UK and Ireland on Thursday. Showery rain in northern England and Scotland. Further cloud and rain moving into Ireland as a cold front slips in from the Atlantic. This rain then edges east into western Scotland, Wales and England in the afternoon. Eastern parts of England and Scotland staying dry. Highs at 24C in southeast England, 14C in Ireland.
A deep area of low pressure passes to the west of Ireland on Friday. This brings an area of severe gales into much of the UK, mostly in the west where gusts could be to 70mph. There will be some heavy periods of rain too, again most of these in the west. Inland gales are likely too. Eastern areas of England are likely to be drier, although there may be rain later. Highs at 14 to 18C.
