Ex-Tropical systems bring autumnal weather
The week ahead will see the remnants of recent Atlantic hurricanes pass to the north of the British Isles - a common occurrence for the time of year. This will bring some periods of strong winds, particularly in the north, and spells of rain, heaviest in the west. Later in the week, high pressure may build and the weather should settle down for many.

A fair day is likely over much of the country with winds fairly light. One or two areas of residual showers left from the remnants of Monday's rain may occur across central & southern Britain, although many places will be dry with sunny spells. Some early low cloud and mist will break up. Toward evening and into the night, rain and strengthening winds moves into the northwest of the British Isles. High temperatures at 13 to 18C.
A windy and damp day with rain affecting many areas as fronts sweep across the country. Wettest across western regions, especially over the hills. Southeastern parts should be drier though not immune from the odd shower. Rain clearing from most areas through the afternoon and evening. Staying showery in western Scotland much of the day. Best of the brightness to the east. Top temperatures at 13 to 20C, coolest in the northwest, warmest southeast.
Windy with outbreaks of rain for northwestern Ireland and northern Scotland as low pressure passes northern Scotland. Gales are possible to the northwest of Scotland. Occasional rain for northern parts of England and west Wales. Cloudy but mostly dry to the south and east. The best of any sunshine to the southeast. Highs at 14 to 17C northwest, up to a humid 21C in the southeast.
A breezy and mostly cloudy day with showers and spells of rain for western Scotland, with patchy rain too for Northern Ireland and northwest England. Drier for eastern Scotland, Wales, central and southern parts of England, some sunny spells in the east. Highs at 13 to 20C, warmest southern England.
There are hints of higher pressure building to the west. This brings a mostly bright and dry day, although a few showers or spots of drizzly rain are possible for north and northwest facing coasts and hills. High temperatures at 12 to 19C.
Much of the country should remain settled with any early fog dispersing to give sunshine and broken cloud. A risk of some rain for northwest Scotland where a west to southwest breeze may stay fresh. Starting chilly rurally. Highs 13 to 19C.
