BBC Weather has stated that “low pressure is expected to dominate the pattern over the UK for the next several weeks”. October is set to have a more autumnal feeling than the mild weather experienced throughout September. The autumnal weather could bring almost four inches of rainfall across the UK.

A yellow weather warning for rain has already been issued for the North East of Scotland.

The low-pressure front is expected to bring heavy showers over Aberdeenshire, Morayshire and the Highlands.

BBC Weather added that the next few weeks will see “unsettled weather with some heavy rain and strong winds at times”.

WXCharts’ Total Accumulated Precipitation charts show the southwest of Scotland could experience 58 and 64mm (2.12-2.51inches) of rainfall over the next five days.

Northern parts of Scotland will see between 37 and 45mm (1.45-1.77 inches).

Matt Taylor, BBC Weather forecaster, said of this week: “As we go into the middle part of the week a big area of low pressure will throw up some longer spells of rain and strong winds.

“It is also going to feel substantially cooler than it does this weekend.”

BBC Weather states that from Saturday, September 25 to Sunday, October 3, Britain will be lashed with rainfall becoming “heavy at times, with strong winds on the coast making for some stormy days”.

The Met Office long-term forecast for the UK for Wednesday, September 29, to Friday, October 8, added: “This period will see unsettled conditions for many with low-pressure systems crossing the UK.

“This will bring organised bands of rain, heavy at times for those in northern and western parts of the country, and interspersed with cooler and showery periods, as well as some bright skies at times.

“Drier and more settled conditions are likely across southern and eastern parts of the country, but there is still a chance that bands of rain and strong winds from the north and west could extend into these areas.”

A high-pressure front in Russia and the North Atlantic will cause a low-pressure area over northern Europe.

This weather pattern is expected to persist for most of October.

High winds coming off the recently upgraded Hurricane Sam will push stormy weather over the UK.

This will cause much of the UK to remain in an unsettled pattern.

However, southern areas of the country will be a bit drier, where temperatures will trend a little above average.

Hurricane Sam could move south into the Caribbean Sea or over the Gulf of Mexico.

If this scenario occurs instead it would result in a prolonged low-pressure area over the UK.
