The final month of Autumn is upon us. It's that dreaded time of year where the beautiful warm colours of the dying flora lie in soggy heaps on the ground, leaving morbidly jagged trees in their wake; where the temperature just gets a little too cold and most of us go through most of our day seeing little, if any, sunlight.
But things could be worse. Following the "warmest Halloween on record" temperatures around the country are due to plumet quickly - brought on from cold blast in the arctic region which is predicted to leave us with the coldest winter in a century! So take whatever sunshine and above freezing temperatures you can get, cause it certainly doesn't seem like it will last!
Today: Following a dry morning, rain is expected to breakout mid-afternoon getting heavier as the evening progresses.
Monday: Another dry and sunny morning ahead, with some light rain in the afternoon. The evening due to take a bit of a foggy turn.
Tuesday: Looks to remain dry throughout, with sporadic intervals of sunshine in the afternoon.
Wednesday: Predicted to be a clear day, with plenty of sunshine. Though temperatures due to be as low as 2°C
Thursday: Light rain showers look to dominate the majority of the day, accompanied by some moderate winds.
Friday: Expected to be another rainy day, starting off heavy and getting progressively lighter by night.
Saturday: The week looks to end on a bit of a wet one, with light rain throughout. Though some patches of sunshine are likely to make an appearance periodically through the day.
Though not ideal, the week ahead seems to be quite mild in comparison to previous weeks. Though if you haven't already, it's definitely time to break out the hats, scarves and gloves with near-freezing temperatures on the cards!
