UK Set For Indian Summer Weather To Last Until November
Forget booking a cheeky little trip away with the LADs this autumn, the beer garden is all you'll need as Britain is set for high temperatures this September.
Despite some miserable rainy days in the last few weeks it's been a brilliant summer in the UK.
The UK Met Office says we should be set for some more days soaking up some sun as we enter autumn as September will see "a good deal of dry, warm and settled weather".
Its forecast for the next 30 days states: "Daytime temperatures are expected to be above average overall, especially across the south and east.
"It may become very warm for a time, and with the warmer conditions perhaps spreading further north and west with time."
And high-pressure systems (yeah, weather talk) look set to keep temperatures hotter than normal from until October.
This is all good news if you're not ready for summer to say goodbye just yet.
Models show higher-than-average temperatures could last until November, while long-range forecasts show there is an 80 to 100 percent chance of above-average warmth in the next three months. Happy days.
One forecaster, Brian Gaze of The Weather Outlook, told The Sun: "September looks like being a continuation of summer.
"30C highs are expected, given computer model forecasts, the Met Office long-range forecast and the large reservoir of heat still over the continent."
After some wet and windy spells over Bank Holiday weekend, this weather will be welcome news in parts of Britain. Looks like it's not quite time to put the factor 50 back in the cupboard yet.
Here in the UK we've had the hottest summer since 1976, and, whether you're a fan of the heat or not, it's not finished just yet.
After unseasonal cold weather over Easter - where parts of the UK even got heaps of snow - it does seem only fair we get an extended summer.
It may have been a bit much at times, as back in July warnings went out from Public Health England to tell people not to go out between 11am and 3pm. That sort of warning is something you'd expect if you were heading for a Mediterranean holiday.
And just at the beginning of August, parts of Britain got hotter than the sun-kissed Maldives, with temperatures soaring to 33C.
On the flipside of this, the recent Storm Debby hit parts of the UK with temperatures that plunged to 0.3C - a shocking almost freezing in August.
But if you were looking forward to a crisp winter coming your way, sooner rather than later, it looks as if it isn't you lucky day.
