The bands of heavy rain are linked to the remains of Hurricane Humberto, which affected Bermuda last week.

Meteorological Office spokesman Luke Miall said winds in the South West could reach 35mph today, and 40mph – gale force – tomorrow.

Maximum daytime temperatures of around 20C (68F) are expected over the next three days in many areas of the country. 

The usual late September average is 19C (66F) in the South, falling to 16-17C (61-63F) further north.

The Met Office expects the unsettled weather to continue for the rest of the month.
