14th Oct to 20th Oct A pleasant week we've just had and warm at times too. A final taste of summer this weekend before things turn rather interesting as ex-Hurricane Ophelia moves towards us from west of Iberia. Current models show the storm stays to our west and so do the strong winds but if the storms veers east then severe weather could result with very strong southerly gales. Ophelia quickly moves away to leave a calmer spell of weather until things turn more lively later in the week as the Atlantic finally awakens for the autumn. AM PM Confidence
