Autumn has arrived!

Many parts of the UK are in for a wet and windy week, with a number of low pressure systems crossing the Atlantic bringing unsettled weather, particularly to the north and west of the country.

This is fairly typical weather for the autumn.

A Yellow National Severe Weather Warning is in place, covering the potential impacts of the remnants of  storm Helene for tonight and tomorrow (Tuesday). Winds are likely to gust 40-50 mph quite widely across south-west England, Wales, and central and northern England, whilst some coasts and hills could have gusts of 55-60 mph.

The unsettled weather continues as we go through the middle of the week with a Yellow National Severe Weather Warning issued for Wednesday. An Atlantic low pressure system is expected to track across the far northwest of the UK bringing more wet and windy weather, with the potential for disruption across parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, north-west Wales and northern England. Even outside the warning area, it will be a windy day for many of us.

Another Atlantic development looks as though it could bring a spell of heavy rain during Thursday, particularly in west Wales and north-west England.  

Friday brings a calmer but cool day with a mixture of sunny spells and showers, some of which could be heavy and potentially thundery across the north of the country.
