Big changes appear to be on the way as the wet weather and Atlantic in general will be sent on an Autumn holiday.
Northern blocking looks like become a big player over the next few weeks with high pressure on the cards and dryer weather.
To begin with we pull in a very cold northerly from this weekend with winds from the Artic.
A chilly week to follow with some frosts possible and dryer conditions but showers cannot be ruled out, particularly in northern and eastern areas as high pressure stays just out to our west. The ridge of high pressure will attempt to move in over us but remaining cold throughout.
The high is then expected to move over to Scandinavia and this could pull in a fairly long fetch easterly from the Russian interior, frost could become fairly dominant and showers may get going across the east and this could possibly start to turn wintry over high ground, however this is a long way off..... If only this was December or January.....
Certainly something to watch, this is really shaping up to be a colder than average October, but will it last into the winter?
