Here is the weather forecast for the weekend ahead.

Friday evening will remain largely dry with clear spells. Overnight, cloud will build from the west, and a few spells of rain may begin to push in from the west by dawn. It is expected to be a colder night than of late.

Saturday will feel slightly cooler with a maximum temperature of 12C and some light rain expected again. The morning will be cloudy, with spells of showery rain becoming widespread and falling quite heavy in places. Later on, the rain will clear to the east, leaving the rest of the day dry and sunny.

Sunday is likely to be another breezy day as low-pressure approaches, and there is a 90 per cent chance of heavy rain during the afternoon.

Luckily, it’s good news for trick-or-treaters as the rain should clear in the evening around 6 pm.

The Met Office is predicting ‘gales’ on Monday, and showers are also likely as low pressure keeps conditions widely unsettled.

Tuesday looks to be a drier day, with plenty of sunny spells, although it will still be breezy with the odd shower possible.
