Indian summer to return with balmy 28C after UK is battered by rain

Brits are likely to bask under scorching heat as a “ridge of high pressure” is set to bring more warm weather to the UK as we move into October.

Temperature levels are predicted to remain high as we head into October with an ‘Indian Summer’ expected to bring more glorious sunshine and temperatures above 20C to the UK.

The hottest day of the year came on Saturday (September 9) as 33.2C was recorded in Kew Gardens – but sadly the weather has since deteriorated.

Concerning weather for Monday October 2 to Tuesday October 10, Ian Simpson, forecaster for independent team Netweather, wrote on its blog: “It looks probable that we will see one or two relatively settled interludes early on in the period with ridges of high pressure moving in, most likely from the south.

“Temperatures are likely to be above normal early in the period, but trending average to fairly cool late in the period. It will probably be drier than average for most, particularly in the west and north-west.”

He added it’ll likely be “sunnier than average”, particularly in the west of England, southwest of England and across Wales.

High pressure will shift to the north of England by the end of this period in what has been described as an “anomaly,” implying warmer air for this time of the year typically.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, the mercury is expected to hit a balmy 28C on the south coast from 3pm to 6pm. Southern-central regions including London can expect 26C or 27C.

The Met Office said conditions will be “turning warmer and humid again in the southeast on Saturday”.

A spokesperson from Met Office told “It could be an unsettled weekend of weather for many in the south, with some thundery downpours likely for some.

“Although precise details are still being determined, some warmer air is expected to influence the weather from the south on Saturday and Sunday. Although this will see temperatures rise for many in the south, likely in the mid-to-high 20s Celsius in London, it also sees the increase in frequency of these thundery downpours on Saturday and more likely on Sunday.

“Although not everywhere will see the worst of these downpours, it’s certainly a watchpoint in the forecast through the weekend for much of the south of England and Wales, with lightning and additional possible hazard through the weekend.”

However, similarly to this weekend just gone, the national weather agency added there will be a “risk of thunderstorms”.

Thunderstorms could also come on Sunday (September 17). The Met Office said: “Relatively dry, bright and cool conditions are expected in the north on Sunday, but southern and central regions are more likely to be more humid with outbreaks of showers, and a possibility of thunderstorms at times.”
