The Met Office predicts a mixed bag of rain, shine and wind across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for  the next few days but the mild temperatures look set to continue

With November well under-way temperatures across the UK are still staying surprisingly high. Some have even described the weather as ‘unseasonably warm’ so ditch the bobble hats and forget warming around a bonfire as the mild temperatures look to be continuing into the next week.

The Met Office reported that most of October was warmer than average with temperatures hitting a high of 22.9 °C at Kew Gardens (Greater London) on October 29 and there was a notable lack of frosts throughout the month. At the same time, the month was predominantly unsettled in most regions, with no dry spells longer than a couple of days.
