Met Office Forecast
Wet and windy today with gales in coastal areas.
Cloudy and increasingly wet this morning as a band of rain, heavy at times moves across the country. Rain should clear east this afternoon with showers following. Windy with severe gales along the coast this morning. Less blustery later. Maximum Temperature 15C.
Further showers this evening, turning heavy and possibly thundery. These will continue overnight too but mixed in with some clearer and drier spells, especially in the east. Still rather windy. Minimum Temperature 7C.
A mixture of sunshine and blustery showers, possibly heavy, on Sunday. Windy, but less so than Saturday. Maximum Temperature 13C.
Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:
Sunshine and showers on Monday, with risk of thunder. A band of rain arriving on Tuesday and spreading across the country. Bright spells and showers again on Wednesday. Windy throughout.
Day 6-7 and Week 2:
Unsettled conditions are expected to dominate for the rest of October, with blustery rain and showers interspersed with occasional sunny spells across the UK. Strong winds are also likely with a risk of gales at times. The wettest and windiest weather is most likely to be seen in the north and west of the UK whilst the best of any drier or brighter weather is likely to be across the south and east. A change to generally drier, more settled and perhaps milder conditions is expected for the start of November with any strong winds, showers or longer spells of rain most likely confined to northern areas. Elsewhere winds will probably become light. These more settled conditions bring an increased risk of overnight frost and fog, particularly across the south.
Week 3 and 4:
For the remainder of November, it is likely to be a tale of 2 halves. The start of this period looks set to see high pressure dominate, bringing more settled than seen in recent times, particularly for the south with any wet and windy weather most likely to affect the north-west. Although confidence lowers toward the end of November, a return to unsettled autumnal weather is most likely, with showers or longer spells of rain and strong winds, interspersed with drier intervals. Overall, temperatures are anticipated to be at or below average for this time of year.

Daylight : Brecon Beacons NP
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 : Brecon Beacons NP
- 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!
