Taste of Summer on the way to the British Isles

Since mid July the UK and Ireland have certainty had their fair share of cool and rather unsettled, often dismal and changeable weather with little in the way of prolonged summer warmth or at least “settled and warm at times” kind of weather. September has so far been 0.5C below average across the Central England region.

However. There are signs in the computer models that high pressure is about to swing in from the east / south east, bringing with it drier and also at times rather warm late Summer / early Autumn “Indian Summer” type conditions. That said, some areas will still experience rain, especially further west during the weekend, however day time highs will be picking up across the board with 22C possible in south east England on Sunday.

The new working week, commencing 25th September, will start on a decent note with sunny spells on Monday with temperature highs ranging from 15-22C across the board. Tuesday will be equally as nice, however some rain is possible for eastern coasts with a nagging easterly wind arriving. Temperatures will be slightly above average next week, with some days approaching 22-23C in the south east, however north western areas, like Scotland, will still feel the Autumn chill into the end of the week though.
