Last of summer heat to hit later this month with highs of 26C

Weather conditions such as thunderstorms, rain and strong gale look set to strike much of the UK from next week, according to weather model WXCharts.

However, these conditions are set to be temporary this month as temperatures will rise to a balmy 26C in parts of the UK on September 14.

The Met Officeforecast for the last two weeks of September says the country will face a split in the weather conditions it experiences.

It said: “Throughout this period, it's likely the country will experience an east-west split in conditions, with eastern parts seeing the driest weather with the most sunshine, and western parts experiencing more rain or showers at times.

“Nocturnal mist or fog patches are expected to become more common through the period, with these conditions being most likely in the south and east.

“Temperatures are likely to be above average for most.”

The Weather Outlook’s Brian Gaze said the impact of the high pressure that caused the extreme heat the UK experienced throughout the summer will lessen next week.

"A change in the weather is on the way, but in the short term it remains dry, sunny and quite warm in most of the UK," he said.

“However, areas of low pressure will be approaching and by the weekend the chance of showers or longer spells of rain increases markedly.

“Forecast details are uncertain and it is possible that south eastern counties could still have warm spells of sunshine.”

Despite the forecast of more Autumn appropriate weather in the coming weeks, Jim Dale, senior meteorologist at British Weather Services, has not ruled out the possibility of heat spikes to return.

He said: “I think we will bounce in and out of differing weather profiles over the month. No spikes yet but give it a week or so.”

Heavy rain will commence next week and will cover large parts of the UK from Monday to Friday.
