Unsettled mid month but the end of the month could be sunny and warm

Low pressure looks set to take control of conditions through the middle of May. It may become wet, windy and cool with a risk of some overnight frosts. however, there is growing confidence in the idea of a build in pressure at the end of the month which could bring sunshine and warm weather for all.

*20/9/14 - 26/9/14*
High pressure is expected to remain large close to, or over the UK and Ireland during this week. This will be bringing plenty of dry weather, although there will be a few days when some showers or outbreaks of rain may occur.
Southern parts of the UK are tending to be on the periphery of the high pressure and so from time to time there is a risk of a few showers affecting the far south of England.
Likewise the far north of Scotland may have cloud and outbreaks of rain at times too, although amounts remain low.

*27/9/14 - 3/10/14*
High pressure remains close by through the week, and it is likely to be staying largely dry across the north of the country for much of the week.
Lower pressure to the south of the country pushes rain into southern England, although this cloud and rain edging slowly northwards through the following week. It is likely to be breezy too.

*4/10/14 - 10/10/14*
Low confidence in the forecast from early October. Indications are that high pressure builds south and east bringing drier weather and sunny spells as well as being mild or warm.
More western areas see lower pressure closer by with showers and some outbreaks of rain.

*11/10/14 - 17/10/14
Pressure may stay high in more southern parts again through this week. Lower pressure to the north and west may bring some rain in Scotland and Ireland, most in the west. Feeling mild for all.
