October ended with a record-breaking Halloween with 20°C reached in a few sheltered spots across the region. We also saw 22 rainy days out of 31, making it quite an unsettled month. A new month however, has brought more autumnal-like temperatures and our first frost of the season but will it last?
Thursday starts off on a cold and frosty note with some local mist patches too and it is likely to have been the coldest night of the year so far. Sunny spells during the morning but cloud from the west with rain and breezy conditions into the afternoon making it feel cold especially when the wind picks up later. Highs of 9°C.
Friday will be a day of sunny spells and showers. Some heavy and we could possibly see some hail. Breezy but a little milder. Highs of 11°C.
It looks like Sunday is the better day of the weekend.
A similar day as we enter the weekend with Saturday looking showery, and these showers may merge to give some longer spells of rain at times but bright spells possible in between. Winds from a southerly direction raising temperatures slightly. Windy again with highs of 12°C.
Sunday should be a little drier. Still scattered showers around but more in the way of brighter spells hopefully giving us a better day. Outside chance of some showers returning late-evening. Highs around average at 12°C.
Looking ahead, it seems a little more settled with normal temperatures and we could still see the odd chilly night.
October 2014 Stats: Warmest 18.7°C; Coldest 3.4°C; Wettest 19.2mm; Windiest 39mph; Total Rainfall 80.6mm.
