A balmy “subtropical sizzle” blown here by Hurricane Larry is set to make us hotter than Portugal for the next few days.
Weathermen say a second autumn heatwave will arrive from Tuesday September 14 as temperatures hit 25C.
Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond, of weathertrending, said: “With Larry’s bundle of energy near Iceland, winds from southern latitudes could send the mercury into the mid-20s – just like last week.
“Remarkable warmth was seen last week, and some may welcome another fine spell after a poor August.”
The heat from the subtropics will be sucked north by powerful Larry, now nearing Iceland.
The Met Office forecast 24C tomorrow, with showers, rising to a possible 25C on Wednesday and Thursday.
It means Britain will be hotter than 23C Faro, on Portugal’s Algarve.
That is 6C above average for this time of year. Even parts of the north will see 23C.
After a spell of rain on a warm Friday, forecasters expect continued heat and dry conditions for many at the weekend and next week.
The hurricane made landfall in Canada, on Saturday, but the energy and heat of the storm is having a knock-on effect.
The Met Office forecast explained: “As ex-Hurricane Larry approaches Iceland, we drag in warmer weather from Tuesday.
“Monday and Tuesday has rain but also bright spells, with many regions dry on Wednesday and Thursday with sunny spells.
“Friday has a spell of rain for many areas – but through the weekend and beyond has a signal for mostly fine and dry weather in the South and East, with temperatures near to above-average.”
The last blast of sun will cheer millions after the drab and washout August school holidays.
Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna added: “Our weather has been so warm recently – and temperatures in the low to mid-20s are still a few degrees above average.”
