Showery weather will dominate the north of the country today and in the coming days, meanwhile the south remains bright and dry ahead of Hurricane Helene.
For the next couple of days the nation will maintain this divide in weather as cloud streams in across northern sections of the UK, whilst others breakdown closer to the south.
Weather reporter Matt Terry told BBC Breakfast viewers: “We’ve got some rain around many northern and western areas and for a time this morning it could be a little heavy, so for some a damp commute.”
On Friday morning it will feel noticeably cooler in Northern Ireland, western Scotland and the north west of England, where most of the outbreaks of rain will be.
However, in the south in places such as London, Plymouth and St Helier it is going to be a lot drier.
Especially for central, southern parts of the country, where it will be particularly sunny at times.
But during Friday afternoon further clouds will develop across Northern England, Wales and possibly in the midlands too.
There is also the chance of some showers, although most of the rain will be on-an-off during the afternoon.
Meanwhile, temperatures are going to be manageable, with the coldest conditions in the north starting at 11 degrees Celsius and the warmest in London with 19 degrees Celsius.
This evening rain across Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and Northern England should become light and patchy.
Then overnight and into Saturday an area of high pressure will start to build up near the south.
What that will mean is drier weather for southern parts of the UK, as well as some sunshine for central areas and even eastern Scotland.
Unfortunately, in the north-west another weather front will push its way in, therefore forecasters expect rain in this part of the country.
Nevertheless, temperatures are going to rise later in the day with London likely to top 21 degrees Celsius.
Bookmaker Coral has cut the odds on this month going on to be the wettest September on record to 6-4 (from 2-1) with the threat of storms in the remainder of the month looming over the UK.
Spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said: “It hasn’t been the worst start to autumn by any stretch but we’ve seen some significant rain and there’s a feeling that storms could well arrive sooner rather than later.
“This could leave this month with every chance of ending a record-breaking one for rainfall.”
The firm also has odds of 8-1 that this winter goes on to be the coldest in history.
“Every winter prompts a flurry of customers betting on it breaking all manner of records, and whilst it will no doubt be a cold one it’s still a long shot to be the coldest we’ve ever seen,” Harry added.
