Halloween weekend wash could slow down London festivities
Halloween could be spoiled by a washing weekend in London.
This is bad news for cheaters or healers after many people were unable to hold the festivities under strict coronavirus guidelines last year.
Heavy rain could soak Londoners around noon on Halloween Sunday and there is a risk of downpours all weekend, according to the Met Office.
The Atlantic systems will arrive from the west, bringing unstable and windy conditions, forecasters said.
The Met Office said in its report: ‘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 the central and western regions. , where episodes of prolonged heavy rains may develop.
“The weather will remain volatile across the UK for the rest of October, with heavy rains likely to continue in the west. In the second half of the period it will be wettest in the west and northwest, but still with some drier interludes.
“Drier conditions are likely in the southern and southeastern regions, with lighter winds and a risk of fog overnight. Temperatures should be generally around or slightly above average.”
Gloomy weather is forecast for the whole week.
The Met Office forecast “prolonged and at times heavy rain in the west and northwest” from Wednesday to Friday this week ahead of the weekend celebrations.
Initially, meteorologists predicted that a white Halloween could be on the cards.
Senior Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst told The Sun Online: “We’re probably going to see snowy weather in the higher areas as October moves into November.
“The areas likely to be affected are the Scottish Highlands as well as the higher lands of northern England and North Wales.
“Low areas are unlikely to see it. It is quite normal at this time of year.
