Rain and gales to batter Britain as storms return following a settled weekend (so don't expect many beautiful scenes like this...)

By MARK DUELL and DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Beautiful scene: A spectacular autumn view as October approaches, with the low morning sun's golden rays highlighting the rainbow of colours starting to break through in the Conwy Valley in North Wales

Early morning sunlight streams through the trees and caresses the ivy-clad cottage they surround.
This sight is a timely reassurance that, while the days may be getting colder, autumn’s spectacular show of colour can enchant our senses and warm our hearts.
Cloaked in shades of red, gold and green, the Tu Hwnt i’r Bont tearooms in Conwy, North Wales, this weekend seemed to become part of its surrounding countryside, the structure only given away by the white of its windows.
The 15th century cottage is transformed at this time of year by its coat, a massive Virginia creeper, changing from deep green to copper red.

Autumn brilliance: The Tu Hwnt i'r Bont tearooms is a quaint 15th century cottage on the west bank of the River Conwy, and the historic building is a very popular attraction for tourists at this time of year

Formerly a courthouse which served the nearby market town of Llanrwst, the cottage, known locally as ‘the red house’, was taken over in the 1930s by two elderly ladies who made money by inviting locals around for evenings of musical entertainment.
It is now owned by the National Trust and leased by Tim Maddox, a former Londoner who escaped the city a decade ago to run the tearooms and enjoy a slower pace of life with his wife and three children.

Sunshine: A couple make the most of the sunshine along Tynemouth beach, North Tyneside, as the sun rises after a week of bad weather

The building sits on the edge of the Snowdonia national park, alongside an Inigo Jones bridge which straddles the rushing River Conwy. Mr Maddox, 47, who used to work in publishing, said: ‘It’s unbelievably picturesque. The trees, the hills and the mountains are just breathtaking. The drive as you approach is fantastic.
'The view changes every day. The colours, the trees. I have to remind myself not to take it for granted.’

Helping hand: Seven kittens, three cats and four chickens were rescued by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on Friday from a property that was marooned due to flooding

It’s hard to imagine that just three weeks ago many of us were bathing in sunshine and 85F heat - but at least some areas were still looking beautiful this weekend, ahead of the start of October.
Rain and gale force winds are set to batter Britain this week as the miserable autumn shows no signs of improvement, after a month that saw parts of England experience a 50 per cent rise in rainfall. Flood warnings are already in place for today and more may follow as rain falls on already soaking ground.

Taken to safety: The RSPCA travelled along a badly-flooded stretch of road to the house, where they safely recovered the animals, which included five two-week old kittens and two nine-week old kittens

Met Office forecaster Helen Waite said: ‘Northern England had an average of one and half times its monthly rainfall - and temperatures across the country were about half a degree below average.’
However she added that last month’s rainfall across the country was average thanks to the dry and sunny start. Meanwhile, there is more wet weather to come as we enter October tomorrow.

Cat eyes: The owner of these animals was much happier after they were rescued in North Yorkshire

Ms Waite said: ‘It’s still quite unsettled and there is a band of rain moving south through the day (Sunday). It’s also very windy, and there are some gales around the coast and the hills.
‘On Monday there will be scattered showers, most persistent in the North-West and perhaps quite heavy at times. It’s still quite blustery and it’s still looking unsettled.’
