Another varied week of weather ahead of us as we welcome November. Farmers Weather expert Garry Nicolson predicts cooler temperatures through mid-week with some scattered sunshine.
Farmers Weather expert Garry Nicolson predicts a milder end to October but welcoming cold, frosty temperatures by mid-week but an overall dry November.
“The final days of October will see mild temperatures across the country, but we expect a change to much cooler conditions as we start November.
“In the short term, this weekend sees temperatures reach 15 to 18C by day, although expect fog in the mornings, and where this lingers for many hours it will be cooler.
“By the middle of next week onward, temperatures will be between 8 and 12C by day, and there is a greater risk of overnight frosts, with many rural areas dipping just below freezing.
“Fog patches will remain likely, but there should be a good amount of sunshine too.
“There is very little rain in the forecast in the foreseeable future, as high pressure continues to dominate our weather patterns.
“Some rain moves into western Scotland and perhaps Northern Ireland on Sunday and Monday.
“By Tuesday and Wednesday, a few showers are likely for northern & eastern Britain as a cold front pushes south.
“Over the Scottish mountains, there is likely to be some snow, and in the far north of Scotland, this may briefly fall to lower levels.
“Longer range indications for the month of November suggest a drier than average month is most likely, although that doesn’t rule out rain developing at times.
“Temperatures are expected to be commonly on the cool side, generally near or below the seasonal average.”
