Met Office predicts warm, sunny weather despite current autumnal feel

Whilst the last day of summer has an autumnal feel, the start of meteorological autumn looks more like summer, the Met Office has said.

Today, rain has moved northeast into Northern Ireland, Wales, and an increasing portion of England.

Although it is likely to brighten up in the southwest this afternoon, further rain is expected to develop across the southeast overnight into Friday morning.

It will feel particularly cool where the cloud persists, but a brighter day for many on Friday will allow temperatures to recover to nearer normal.

The broader weather patterns across the North Atlantic are currently complex, partly because of warm tropical air associated with Hurricane Franklin moving north into more temperate latitudes.

This will help build an area of high pressure in the vicinity of the UK, heralding a spell of fine and warm weather for many.

Steven Keates, Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, said, “High pressure will build across much of the UK this weekend, bringing fine, dry and settled conditions for many.”

“It will feel rather humid in the south with temperatures reaching 23 or 24C on Saturday, while further north it will reach the high teens or low twenties Celsius.”

“Many areas will see fine and warm weather on Sunday as well, with temperatures widely in the low to mid-20s Celsius. However, the far north and northwest of Scotland will be breezier and cloudier with some rain at times.”

By early next week, the remnants of Franklin will probably be absorbed into another area of low pressure, swirling to the west of Iberia.

This too will help to push warm air northwards towards the UK, and with high pressure remaining close by, probably just to the east of the UK by this time, further warm and often sunny weather looks probable, at least through the first part of next week.
