Farmers Weather expert, Garry Nicholson predicts while rain will affect the North and West this weekend, the South and East will be dry and warm.
As we have now reached the first day of Autumn (September 22), weather is becoming more changeable with a band of rain expected to pass south-eastwards across the country later on in the weekend.
Farmers Weather’s Garry Nicholson said: "Conditions are looking rather mixed over the next few days, although most of the rain will affect the West and North, whilst the South and East will be frequently dry, and often quite warm.
"Friday and Saturday bring dry and warm weather to many areas, with temperatures up to 23C in the South-East.
"However, fronts will be approaching western Britain and Ireland from the Atlantic, so rain will increasingly develop - initially confined to western Scotland and the far West of Ireland on Friday, but nudging further into North-West England and Wales during Saturday.
"Before the rain arrives, a freshening southerly breeze in all regions will be useful for drying.
"By Sunday, a weakening band of rain is expected to pass south-eastwards across the country, bringing some rain to most places, but amounting to very little in the south and east.
"Showery conditions will follow into the North and West.
"Early next week becomes cooler, and sees further changeable conditions move into the north & west, but the south & east continues to see just small amounts of rain as decaying fronts pass eastwards.
"There is a risk of a more widespread rain band coming through after midweek, but details of this rather are uncertain for now.
"Into early October, whilst there may be some rain around at times, there are signs that high pressure could well become a common theme of the forecast, meaning periods of settled weather are likely, resulting in some pleasantly warm days, but some cool nights with mist and fog possible."
