Autumn looks set to make an entrance this week, with more ‘traditional’ weather patterns for this time of year moving in, and replacing the warm, tropical conditions some of us have been enjoying!

– Please note, the idea behind this update is to focus on the main weather highlights, so that’s why not all regions are mentioned.
