BBC Weather: Final summer heat to engulf UK with balmy temperatures and humid nights

0


BBC Weather forecast the UK will experience a last wave of summer weather before the season ends, courtesy of two weather fronts clashing off the coast. BBC forecaster Sarah Keith-Lucas said the front will cause a significant weather split between the north and south of the UK, with Scotland and Northern Ireland on track for a rainy day. Ms Keith-Lucas said: “We’ve got the cloud that’s just coming from the north and the west. But through the day, it’s going to be a day of mixed fortunes because we’re going to have a lot of that cloud bringing some outbreaks of rain in the north and the west.

“It’s also going to be quite windy as well but further south and east, a different sort of day. Mostly dry in the south and the east, with a bit of sunshine coming through and it’s going to feel reasonably mild if not warm for many of us through the day.

“We’ve got an area of high pressure that’s moving its way from the southwest but also low pressure well to the north of the UK. These trailing weather fronts, that’s bringing the rain and the blustery wind in the north and west.

“We’ve had quite a lot of rain overnight across Scotland and Northern Ireland, that rain continues to push its way through northern England into Wales as well.

“It becomes quite showery and patchy as it heads towards the south and the east. Much of southern and eastern England, also eastern Scotland this afternoon looks bright and dry, with temperatures in the low 20s but for most of us, we’re in the high teens through the afternoon.”

The BBC meteorologist said the drizzle is set to remain a feature for some areas well into the evening as she noted temperatures will make conditions quite “humid”.

She said: “Through this evening and overnight, we’ll continue to see quite a lot of cloud, few spots of light rain or drizzle pushing south across parts of Wales, northern England as well.

“To the south of that, you can see some mist and fog patches around and for all of us, a reasonably mild, in fact, quite humid sort of night.”

Temperatures are expected to continue rise through the week thanks to warm air pushing in from the northwest, despite low pressure set to continue producing rain in the north. 

Net Weather TV also forecast a comeback of warmer conditions, with its latest charts showing temperatures will hit a peak on Tuesday afternoon.

A spokesman for the Met Office however said the sudden temperature surge will not be high enough to constitute a heatwave.

He said: “It is likely to turn warm in the south-east of England where temperatures will rise into the low 20Cs, perhaps mid-20Cs in one or two spots.

“At present, this is not expected to fit the criteria for a heatwave, however, as this requires temperatures of 27C or higher in the south-east for at least three consecutive days.”
