However, some brief bright and dry spells are still likely at times in all parts of the UK, with the most settled conditions probably found across eastern and south-eastern areas. Overall, temperatures are generally looking to be close to normal for the time of year. Conditions may turn more settled close to the end of the period, particularly in the south.

Met Office : South East England : 2020-10-23T02:03:58
Daylight : Kent
Day length is dusk to dawn. Times will vary a little if there is a hill on the horizon.
It should still be light enough to read at dawn and dusk, so there will be enough light for walking even earlier (later).
Moonlight : Kent
- The moon's phase or fracillum (percentage of the moon illuminated) doesn't vary much with location.
- A full moon is not just bigger, its much brighter. A half moon ('50%') give less than 5% of the illumination of a full moon. You can walk with a half moon if its high in the sky (after dusk for a growing moon, before dawn for a shrinking moon).
- Sky glow (light reflected by air or clouds) from nearby cities, and especially snow on the ground also effect light levels.
- Times will vary a few minutes, as (i) these figures are for the centre of the county the walk is in, (ii) if there are hills on the horizon, and (iii) if you are on a hill
- Of course, you need a cloudless night as well!
