It was an overwhelmingly soggy summer this year - and, according to The Weather Network, things aren’t going to get better.

Providing a three-month forecast, they’ve revealed that - while September might provide some sunshine - storms are set to dominate October and November.

Yup, it’s going to be above average rainfall and below average temperatures throughout most of the country.

And it’s all thanks to a strengthening jet stream out in the North Atlantic, which is going to drive plenty of wet and windy weather across the UK.

“Unfortunately this won’t last as wet and cool conditions will dominate throughout October and November, particularly in western areas of the UK, due to the strengthening jet stream.”
