Mini-heatwave will see London temperatures reach 26C says Met Office

We’ve has some lovely spells so far in September, with temperatures around the 27C mark last weekend and almost no rain in weeks.

This trend looks set to continue with warm and sunny weather forecast for the weekend and into next week.

The Met Office predicts on Saturday, September 19, we’re going to get temperatures of 25C in areas of London, rising to 26C on Sunday, September 20 and Monday, September 21.

It’s going to be sunny all day, so get prepared for everyone rushing to the beach in a bid to soak up what’s likely the last of 2020’s rays.

Sadly it’s not set to last, with the rest of next week seeing temperatures gradually drop to 17C the high, and we can expect some light showers.

The Met Office’s longer term weather forecast for the UK is looking like a mixed bag.

It predicts “sunny spells and light winds for most” next week but a “a chance of showers, possibly heavy, in the south”.

Going into the start of October “it seems most likely that it will be changeable” and “the best of any settled spells will be in the south and there is a signal that these could become more prolonged during early October”.

Happily it goes on to say “overall, temperatures are expected to be around or slightly above the normal”.

So perhaps we will see another warm spell before winter properly hits.
