UK facing scorching 30C September heatwave in new forecast

UK weather: Some showers in the mix

The UK is tipped for a sizzling 30C heatwave in September after a predicted bank holiday washout.

A meteorologist has revealed that despite summer officially coming to a close, hot weather is not going anywhere.

In fact, UK temperatures may return to those seen back in June when the country enjoyed scorching heatwaves due to high pressure weather systems.

Forecasters have assured Brits hoping for some more sunshine that temperatures may still reach 30C in September as a late summer heatwave is set to grip the country.

Senior Meteorologist at British Weather Service Jim Dale told that the hot weather is “much overdue” and “could come into fruition by the time we come into September”.

He said: “The all-time high in September is 35C in 1906 so we have some way to get to that. Having said that, 30C is entirely possible and is not unknown. 

“There is no reason why some of the heat in the mediterranean and southern Europe won’t eventually meander itself in our direction. There is hope.

“It just depends whether we can get the right situation and draw in some very warm air from the continent.”

However, Britons should not be putting their umbrellas away just yet as weather maps show this upcoming Bank Holiday will be shadowed with heavy downpours and gloomy skies in many areas. 

Mr Dale added: “Before we get there we have some mixed weather to come that is for sure. We can see it quite clearly this weekend.”

The Met Office has said Britons should expect a “mixed picture” for the bank holiday weekend as temperatures should linger in the low 20s in southern regions.

While in the northern areas temperatures will only reach high teens in the coming days.

The Met Office’s outlook for the weekend states: “Sunny spells and blustery showers throughout this period, some heavy across the north and west. 

“Showers tending to ease as Sunday progresses. Feeling much fresher for all.”
