Met Office predicts wet and windy semester as families leave for last-minute vacation
The Met Office predicted a largely wet and windy October semester with “chances of hail and thunder” and “patchy rains” to come.
The southwest is expected to appear much busier over the next few days after a traffic warning was issued for the area when it was revealed families were planning a last-minute getaway to the county before Christmas.
However, despite the last stays planned, the weather does not seem to be right and will be rather typical for October.

In a forecast for the southwest, the Met Office predicted there would still be some sunshine, but clouds, rain and wind look more likely over the next few days.
It follows recent weather warnings that were issued in the region when Devon, Cornwall and Dorset saw flooding in seaside towns and rivers after we experienced prolonged periods of rain.
Now, a Met Office forecast from today, October 25, predicts:
A day of sunshine and showers, with stronger showers possible and the risk of hail and thunder. Breezy at times but quite pleasant in the sun. Maximum temperature 15 ° C.
Showers gradually subsiding throughout the evening until only isolated showers remained along the coast overnight. Sensation of cold under prolonged clear intervals but more scattered clouds developing in the early morning. Minimum temperature 5 ° C.
After an icy start, a dry and beautiful day on Tuesday. A bit of early light before clouds form during the day and a moderate breeze develops. Smoother feeling than Monday. Maximum temperature 16 ° C.
Outlook from Wednesday to Friday:
Mainly dry and cloudy Wednesday and Thursday, but there is a chance of patchy rain at times. Mostly humid on Friday. Rather mild everywhere and at times windy.
Towards the end of October, the Atlantic systems will move from the west, bringing unstable and windy conditions. On Friday, although the north and far south-east may experience periods of drought, the weather will be volatile for the rest of the UK, particularly in parts of the center and west, where episodes of severe Prolonged rains can develop. The weather will remain volatile across the UK for the remainder of October, with heavy rains likely to continue in the west. In the second half of the period, wetter in the west and northwest, but still with brief dry interludes. Drier conditions likely over parts of the south and southeast, with lighter winds and a risk of overnight fog towards the end of the period. Temperatures generally around or slightly above average.
