5:03 am
to open their international borders. as far as the numbers 90, borders. as far as the numbers go, new south wales, where i am, is said to be the first state to welcome citizens back from abroad and whose residence, australian residents and permanent citizens and residents, will be able to go abroad and come back to seven days of home quarantine. these, of course, are fully vaccinated residents and citizens. but really, essentially what the move means is this is the end for the hotel quarantine system for the hotel quarantine system for those people who are fully vaccinated, which means there will be on arrival and that although citizens who were waiting to come back to australia can now come back home. other details that have come back is that those who are fully vaccinated have to get a jab that is approved by the australian health authorities. we know that two vaccines, one from china and one from india are also set to be approved for travel. there are a couple of details that need to be
5:04 am
hammered out, which is how this will look, for example, when new south wales, so to open and get out of lockdown, open as international borders, how travel will look like in terms of this state and other states that will remain closed, especially, for example, queensland and western australia, that have still gone for zero covid and are very reluctant to open up soon. you may have a scenario, for example, was someone in new south wales can travel to london or bali but cannot travel to queensland because their borders are still closed because there vaccination numbers are still not up to that target and because they are reluctant to open their borders. i definitely welcome news for many australian citizens, because the country has essentially been closed up to the rest of the world since march last year and that hotel quarantine, while it was successful in the beginning in curbing the spread of covid—19, it meant that so many australians couldn't get home in the past 18 months or so and those who did come back had to

5:26 am
moment and reach me on twitter. i will be back shortly with the days top business stories. goodbye for now. good morning. new month, but unfortunately not a new weather story. it looks likely that the beginning of october will be quite an autumnal, unsettled picture, with some rain at times. there will be some brighter interludes as well, but the winds certainly a feature, with plenty of leaves coming down off the trees over the next few days. now, as you can see, friday's weather will continue to see this frontal system moving in over the next few hours. it means first thing on friday morning, it still has yet to clear away from the south east. it will do so, and into the afternoon, we should see some sunshine coming through. so, a better second half to the day. there'll be plenty of frequent showers accompanied by a blustery wind on exposed west—facing coasts of scotland, northern ireland and north west england. temperatures ranging from 11—18 celsius.
5:27 am
now, as we move out of friday into saturday, low pressure is anchoring itself up into the far north of scotland, and we've got another developing low pushing into the far south west. this is going to bring a spell of, yet again, wet and windy weather. it'll move in from the south west, gradually pushing its way steadily northwards. so, if you start the day dry, it's highly unlikely that you will finish the day dry because that rain is going to continue to push its way steadily north and east. maybe the far north east of scotland will see some brightness for much of the day. the winds picking up as well, gusts in excess of 45—50 mph on exposed coasts. that's going to make it feel disappointingly cool in the cloud, the wind and the rain. moving out of saturday into sunday, that frontal system still to clear away, and low pressure looks likely to park itself into the far north of scotland. the southern flank of the low, we could see the strongest winds, 50—60 mph gusts not out of the question. and that's where potentially the heaviest of the rain is likely to lie for the second
5:28 am
half of the weekend. bright and breezy elsewhere, with a scattering of sharp showers on and off throughout the day. those temperatures, well, still on the disappointing side, and gales certainly are going to be more of a significant feature close to the area of low pressure. top temperatures on sunday once again between 12—16 celsius. monday into tuesday looks likely to stay with that showery theme, with some blustery winds as well from time to time. it's autumn good and proper. whatever you do, take care.
