A return to warm weather is on the horizon following the coldest week of the season yet.
With temperatures set to hit 20C in some regions of the UK, it's a welcome memory of the summer just gone past, although it won't be nearly as boiling.
James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, said: “Low pressure will take charge through the end of September and for many this will bring a bout of autumnal wind and rain.

“However, there are strong signals for a change in the weather during the start of October, and this will be to something much warmer.
“Temperatures are looking like rising, and there are strong signals for a decent spell of Indian summer weather.”
Mr Madden was adamant that Britons should take advantage of the brief warm weather before the country re-enters a period of turbulent weather.
He said: “As the month progresses, we are likely to see a significant rise in the risk of stormy weather during the second half of October and into November, and this could be widespread.
“In addition, evenings and mornings will start turning notably cooler in October despite the mid-autumn warmth and settled weather.
“The risk for widespread ground frosts will increase again as we go through the month.”
Jim Dale, meteorologist at British Weather Services said: “The middle of the week is likely to be the coldest, [while] next week, however, there are now signs of a change to much warmer conditions, with temperatures back up to 20C.”

Mr Dale said the warm weather will be reminiscent of spring-time: “We could see four or five days of high pressure and it will feel quite warm again, even a bit spring-like.
“As we are now in October and have had a spell of colder weather, it would be appropriate to describe this as an Indian Summer.
“Next Monday is looking like being the warmest day, but temperatures will remain higher through the rest of next week.”
The Met Office has, however said that before the warm weather heats up the nation next week, we first must get through the stormy weather conditions that are set to travel through to the weekend.
