—— goodbye. good morning. we really are experiencing all flavours of autumn this week. it was rather cool and disappointing on monday, wasn't it? but tuesday made up for it. some lovely spells of sunshine for most of us — as you can see by this beautiful weather watcher picture sent in from leeds. however, today it's again a different story. we are seeing some wet and windy weather arriving, so some rain at times today and a noticeable blustery wind. and that's because of the remnants of ex—hurricane dorian. an area of low pressure that's been arriving over the last few hours bringing some wet and windy weather into scotland and northern ireland. and we've got these weather fronts straddled across the country first thing in the morning. not producing that much in the way of rain, but some patchy light rain across parts of east anglia and the south—east to start with. 0vercast skies and some rain into north wales and north—west england. but already, behind it, into scotland and northern ireland, you'll start off with some sunny spells and a few scattered showers. now, we can't rule out the odd rumble of thunder with those showers, but hopefully they should be few and far between. something that will be late
noticeable will be the strength of the wind, a strong westerly gusting in excess of 40, maybe 45 mph on exposed west facing coasts. but there will be some sunny spells coming through later on in the day. and as a temperatures will improve. highs of 22 degrees, 72 fahrenheit. so that weather front will trail away then it's going to be replaced by another area of low pressure pushing in from the atlantic. this one has more in the way of tropical moisture tucked in behind it, which means a real difference in the weather to the north and the south. it will bring some rain into northern ireland, southern scotland, and north—west england for a time and some strong blustery winds here. but with that south—westerly flow and some sunny spells across much of england and wales temperatures will improve. and in the sunshine it will feel quite pleasant. we could see highs, maybe, of around 2a degrees, the mid—70s fahrenheit. a contrast to the north with 13—17 degrees the high. now, as we move out of thursday into friday, and the start of the weekend, an area of high pressure is going to build in across from the atlantic over england and wales. just allowing weather fronts to topple across the high and bringing occasional spells of wet and windy weather to the extreme north—west. but for many of us it does mean that friday and into the weekend conditions will dry up and warm up and we could see temperatures
