There's certainly no need to wear a jumper at the moment. Yesterday the temperature at Hawarden in Flintshire reached 16 Celsius, 61 Fahrenheit.

The average maximum temperature for this time of year is about 13 Celsius, 55 Fahrenheit and it's going to remain mild for the rest of this week, although abit breezy and windy for some.

The strongest winds will be in the west and north west over the next 24 hours with the southerly wind reaching gale force with gusts between 50 and 60mph, so plenty of leaves blowing around!

Autumn at Carreg Cennen Castle near Ammanford by Steven Morgan:

The reason for the current spate of windy weather is an area of deep low pressure in the Atlantic, pushing a cold front towards Ireland.

Ahead of it there's some warm air from the Bay of Biscay flowing northwards into Britain.

It looks like we'll all see some rain tomorrow afternoon, heaviest in the west which will clear to showers tomorrow evening.

Saturday will be breezy with a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers with some dry weather too so potentially good news for the Snowdonia marathon on Saturday which will start near Dolbadarn Castle and end on Llanberis High Street.

On Sunday there is a risk of rain in the south and west but drier in the north but for most of the country it should be dry by Halloween with lighter winds.

I will update the weekend forecast on Friday, in the meantime watch out for the strong winds, especially if you live in the west.
