As farmers bring their harvest to a close, it would seem summer is officially on the way out and autumn is on the way in.
Farmers Weather expert Dr Simon Keeling said weather conditions should improve towards the end of the week, but not before more cool, unsettled weather first.
He said: "Tuesday looks set to be a cool day with some rain affecting Eastern England. Drier to the west in the afternoon, but not until morning showers have cleared away. There is s a risk of a few heavy showers in the Southeast too.
"Wednesday is likely to be a drier day, especially in the East although rain arrives again in western Scotland and Ireland.
"Breezier and more showery conditions for Thursday, most in the north and west, although a tendency to become drier in the south by Friday.
"Prospects for the weekend are for pressure to build and for the weather to become drier and brighter, although there will be morning mist and fog patches to contend with, as well as chilly nights."
