A weather split
During this week we will start to see a bit of a split developing in the weather. Low pressure will dominate across the northwest of the UK, whereas more settled weather will take hold of the southeast. This means the northwest will feel very autumnal and can expect to see wet and windy weather but the southeast should see some drier and brighter spells.
The only spanner in the works could be the remains of further ex-tropical weather systems getting caught up at our latitudes, which, as we're seeing this week, can be a feature of the weather at this time of year.

The first frost?
As we head into October and our nights have become longer than our days, we will probably start seeing our first frosts in some sheltlered, inland spots.
Whilst rainfall and sunshine amounts are likely to be about normal for this time of year for most places, it does look as though western Scotland will see more rainfall than usual with eastern Scotland likely to see a little more sunshine. The southwest of England on the other hand may be in for a rather cloudy couple of weeks.
The decision has yet to be made.
