It was a rainy start to the week in Leeds.

The Met Office said it will be a breezy Monday night with further showers at times.

But how does the weather look for the rest of the week?

Here is the full range Met Office forecast for this week:

It is set to be a bright start to the day on Tuesday, September 28.

As the day progresses, it will begin to cloud over with showers and longer spells of rain.

It will feel much cooler than of late, the Met Office said, with maximum temperatures of 15 degrees.

Wednesday will be bright but windy, with early rain clearing east.

Further rain and showers spreading eastwards is expected on Thursday and Friday with some brightness at times.

Temperatures are set to be near or slightly below average.

The Met Office's long range forecast, which looks from Friday onwards to October 10, states that a low pressure system to the north of the UK will bring heavy rain and isolated thunderstorms for all.

This will bring bands of rain, heavy at times, interspersed with cooler and showery periods but some sunny spells too.

The temperatures are most likely to be slightly below average for this time of the year during the start of the period, but will gradually return to near average later.
