BBC Weather warning: UK set for ‘heavy and persistent’ rain in brutal welcome to autumn

BBC Weather meteorologist Matt Taylor stated that Wales and England will see some sunshine and some isolated showers in the next 24 hours. He added that the weather in Scotland and Northern Ireland will improve on Wednesday.  

Mr Taylor said: “There is an area of colder air that will push itself southwards and eastwards in the next 24 hours.

“To get there though we have to deal with some rain that is going to be across the far north and west of Scotland throughout this morning.

“The rain is going to be heavy and persistent eventually pushing into Northern Ireland in the afternoon.

“Elsewhere we start with some sunshine, a few mist and fog patches and some isolated showers in Wales and western England into the afternoon.

“Mostly it will stay dry and sunny in eastward areas, where we will see the warmest conditions.”

He continued: “Rain will come through this evening in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“There will be blustery conditions in northern England and west Wales.

“Tomorrow morning there will be some showers in the east while the last of that summer warm holds on.

“There will also be a brighter start for Scotland and Northern Ireland.”

“There will be a lot more sunshine around with some breaks of rain that will quickly clear in Wales.

“Rain will spread eastwards across England with little rain expected in the Midlands.”

It comes as a high-pressure system will be pushed towards southern areas of the UK during the beginning of next month, meaning there will be “a fair amount of sunshine” according to Netweather.

Netweather’s long-range forecast said: “Into early October there is an increasing chance of high pressure pushing in from the south and bringing mostly settled and warm weather, probably with a fair amount of sunshine for most, and a likelihood of more changeable weather holding on in the north and west of Scotland in particular.

“Temperatures will tend to be close to or just below the long-term seasonal norm early to midweek, with some cool nights midweek as the high pressure moves in and some fog patches in places, but will tend to rise above normal late in the week as there is a significant chance of southerly and south-westerly winds setting in.

“Mean temperatures are thus expected to be a little above normal overall, but only by 1C or less in most parts of the country.

“Rainfall totals are again mostly expected to be below normal, except in western Scotland, where near or slightly above average rainfall is most likely. Sunshine totals are mostly expected to be near normal in central and western Scotland, but above normal elsewhere.”
