The Met Office long range forecast indicates that there will be severe gales across the country during the second week on October.
As winds will be very strong, this could mean that forecasters name a storm due to it’s intensity.
From next weekend, it is likely to turn increasing unsettled for all with spells of rain, locally heavy, spreading east.
It will be windy with the risk of gales in places, particularly across coastal areas. Temperatures will be around average for the time of year.
More unsettled weather will continue across the country by the second week in October, most especially in the north and west.
This will bring an increased likelihood of gales or severe gales as well as heavier rain across many parts, which could result in a named storm.
By mid October, confidence in the forecast reduces, however it may remain generally unsettled with occasional drier and brighter spells, particularly in the east and southeast.
On the whole, temperatures will be close to or slightly warmer than normal, but in any settled spells there could be chilly nights, with an increased risk of mist, fog and frost.
