won the men's event. you can get all the latest sports news at our website — that's bbc.com/sport.but from me chetan pathak and the rest hello. it was a weekend of two halves. we had plenty of sunshine for most places on saturday. followed by more showers on sunday. but on both days, it was warm, with temperatures above 27 celsius. this was the scene as the sun went down sunday night in cornwall, some clear skies but some shower cloud still around too and really, through the week ahead, we are looking at a pretty unsettled autumnal feel to the weather, wet and windy at times and it will feel quite a bit cooler than it has done. monday is, of course, the autumn equinox and right on cue, we are welcoming this area of low
pressure from the atlantic. some of this rain is much—needed rainfall, articularly across parts of south—east england where we have had less than 20% of the expected rainfall so far for september. during monday morning, most places starting dry. bit cloudy and damp for the north—west of scotland. these areas are working to the south—west of wales and england and northern ireland, winds picking up through the day, central and eastern parts of england, up to southern scotland, you should stay dry all day. temperatures reaching 21 degrees, fresher than it has been. typically, the high teens when you are under the cloud and the rain in the west. moving through into monday night, and ovenright into tuesday, we see that rain becoming quite heavy, especially across parts of south wales, southern england as well, the winds also picking up with that heavy rainfall. it will be a mild night, certainly frost—free, as it will be really for much of the week ahead, we're not expecting to see any frost this week but what we are going to see is some strong winds and heavy rain on tuesday morning, courtesy of a bit of a wave developing on this weather front here moving in from the atlantic. so with all that rain and also
the strong winds to content with too, we may well have a bit of disruption to travel tuesday morning especially for parts of southern england, into south wales as well. there'll be a lot of standing water on the roads. this area of heavy rain works its way gradually eastwards across england and wales. that'll be followed by more heavy showers and thunderstorms packing in from the south—west. i think northern ireland and the north—west of scotland should stay predominantly dry through the day. temperatures only around about 15—19 degrees. much cooler than it has been and plenty of really quite heavy showers around. not only the showers but let's look at the wind gusts. 30mph gusts inland, a0 or even 45mph gusts along the south coast and through the english channel too. all that wet and windy weather moves eastwards, but we'll still see some rain in the south—east wednesday morning. a less windy day by the time we get to wednesday, with a mix of sunny spells and a few scattered showers but not a particularly wet day on wednesday. temperatures around 16—20 degrees
