Updated to add :
The wind did drop later in the afternoon and it did reach the projected 20 degrees C by teatime.
At the moment it is 7 degrees C / 45 degrees F, and is projected to warm up to 12 C / 54F by lunchtime and 19 C / 66 F by 4pm.
the early morning and early evening temperatures are likely to be fairly brisk in October, so I would recommend bringing a good mix of lightweight clothes and cardigans/light jackets for the occasional warm afternoon and some really warm clothes for inclement days. It will be getting seriously chilly here by the end of October.......

Although we have glorious sunshine at the moment, there is a strong and very keen wind blowing and I am absolutely freezing !
The weather forecast said 20 degrees C today, but they must be kidding........
