Brits are being urged to dust off their hats and sun cream as temperatures are expected to rise to almost 30C after a damp August. Warm weather will sweep in from late on Monday causing temperatures to rise on Tuesday, September 7 to 28C.

 

Netweather’s maximum and minimum temperatures charts show the majority of England will experience temperatures of between 25C (77F) and 28C (82.4F) at 3pm on this day.

The blood-red colours on the charts however will not widely extend into Scotland with temperatures expected to be more moderate.

The mercury will peak at between 24C (75.2F) and 25C (77F) across Wales and between 18C (64.4F) and 14C (69.8F) across Scotland.

The warm pattern will move further east on Wednesday with temperatures expected to peak at 26C (78.8F) and 27C (80.6F) across the Eastern half of England.

Meanwhile, the South West of England and most parts of Wales will see more moderate temperatures of between 21C (69.8F) and 23C (73.4F).

The hot weather is coming in from Europe where 35C is forecast for parts of France. 

Veteran Weather forecaster Michael Fish, who now works for Netweather said a shift of wind direction would cause a sudden surge in temperatures.

He added: “I think our prayers will be answered as far as the sunshine is concerned in the coming week but not much in the way of rain.”

Forecasters said the sun would be followed by thunderstorms in the second half of the week.

The storms will start in the western parts of England and Wales before moving east into next weekend, the Met Office said.

The forecasting service also said the public should be aware that while the peak of summer has passed, they could still suffer sunburn if they fail to take precautions.

Craig Snell, Met Office meteorologist said: “The sun is still fairly strong so if you’re going to be in the sun for kind of a good length of time, wear a hat and some sun cream because even though it would be kind of past the peak of the summer, the sun can still burn you at this time of year.

He continued: “For some of us I think they will probably be a good five degrees above average for the time of year.

“At the early part of September, we’re probably looking at an average of about 21C across southern parts of the UK.

“In the north, we are probably looking more around the high teens so 17-18C.”

Mr Snell concluded: “September over the last decade or so, we have had a warm spell especially towards the beginning of the month.”
