Brits might be able to bask in temperatures as high as 24C next week, as unusually warm weather has been forecasted to make its way to the UK. The latest NetWeather long range forecast charts of September show balmier skies ahead after a slightly greyer weekend.
The hot weather blast comes as Hurricane Larry made landfall in Newfoundland Canada on September 11.
Remnants of the cyclone are now making their way across the Atlantic.
Although the UK will be spared from this tropical storm, its fallout could see temperatures soar across the UK.
The Met Office said the energy and heat from the storm will impact the jet stream over the UK.
This could cause temperatures to spike, but there is a degree of “uncertainty” about this.
Met Office forecaster, Alex Deakin, told The Sun: “It [Hurricane Larry] is important because it is dragging a lot of warmth and a lot of energy and it will interact with the jet stream.
“The effect for the UK is that the jet stream is in quite an unusual position which means there is some uncertainty about whether high or low pressure will control things.”
But he added: “At the moment it does look like high pressure will be the more dominant feature.
“The battle between high and low pressure will continue into the start of next week.”
When will temperatures soar?
The Met Office has forecast wet weather for much of the UK on Monday and Tuesday.
But from Wednesday some parts of southern England will see temperatures soar far above the UK’s average for this time of year.
Brits hoping for a last spell of summer weather could be in for a September scorcher.
Met Office forecaster, Greg Dewhurst, said temperatures could rise to 24C from Wednesday.
This is far above the UK’s 18C average for this time of year.
But Mr Deakin said: “It won’t be as crazily warm as it was through the first half of this week and it will be cold at night but it could mean fine and dry weather.”
And weather maps from Netweather show that heat is forecast to continue, with UK Max Temperature charts showing much of England turning red with highs of 22C to 23C by 6pm on Thursday, September 16.
Into Friday and Saturday of this coming week and it looks like more of the same, with a huge stretch of red sitting the south and eastern coastline.
But while the hot weather will then disappear for a few days, that wont be the end of it this month.
The charts show the scorcher conditions will return on Thursday, September 23, with balmy 22C to 23C for much of the south and midlands once again.
Then into Friday, September 24, the heat really ratchets up with the maps showing a thick band of 24C temperatures sweeping the nation.
This week, however, it’ll start off with reasonable temperatures for the time of year.
The Met Office said: “Many regions dry on Wednesday and Thursday with sunny spells, although rain affecting the far northwest later.”
They added it will “likely be largely dry in the south on Thursday, with the risk of a few showers.
“However, outbreaks of rain, potentially heavy, with stronger winds arriving across the northwest and spreading south-eastwards, bringing a spell of rain to many areas of the UK on Friday.”
