Just having a look at the week ahead so you know what is in store for the start of our official gritting season on the 1st November – if you are a Scottish reader this will be old news as your gritting season starts on 1st October.
No Tricks there are still weather Treats to come …..
Spring forward, fall back – that’s how I remember it! Yes the clocks go back to Greenwich Mean Time on Sunday marking the official end to British summertime. Enjoy the extra 60 minutes.
The end of the working week ends mild on the whole and the settled pattern we have seen over this week staying in play for the last few days of October. So Saturday could well start with some fog and mist patches that could be stubborn to clear but overall a dry and mild day for the most of the UK with temperatures ranging from 13-16 degrees. There looks like there is plenty of cloud around over the weekend but the temperatures will remain mild with clear patches. High pressure still hangs on for Sunday and Monday although in the far north of Scotland and perhaps the west expect some wet weather as low pressure sitting off to the west is one to watch closely. This will be the main influencer for our weather as we move through next week and at this time there is no certainty as to how this will play out so the front could move across us or sink to the south either way the temperatures will start to feel cooler or rather more normal for the time of year although the settled conditions look set to continue for some time.
Elsewhere – Central Italy suffered two earthquakes and although no one was killed many homes and business were destroyed. Over 200 aftershocks were reported which were widespread.
