Temperatures set to soar next week with Britain getting one last summer spike

Britain is set to have one final week of summer before the autumn weather kicks in, according to a meteorologist.

Jim Dale, senior meteorologist at British Weather Services, told the Daily Express that there had been early indicators that England could expect more hot weather throughout the month of September.

He said: "It’s a long way off but tentatively yes for the final week in the south, we will be touching 20C if all goes to plan."

The beginning of autumn usually sees temperatures around the late teens, with increased rainfall following the dry summer months.

Interactive weather maps have also predicted more warm weather, with September 24 pinpointed as a day where temperatures will peak at 22C in London and the East.

Dale did say that these temperatures are not too unusual for the time of year.

"It happens," he said. "What we are looking for come late September and early October is a sustained southerly flow which would indicate an Indian Summer."

However, an Indian Summer refers to a time of a "warm, calm spell of weather occurring in autumn", which tends to be in October and November.

Long-range forecasts, which go up to September 29, are not currently showing any more hot temperatures for the UK, with conditions expected to be generally settled.

The Met Office has warned that unsettled weather is due to occur as we move into October.

Looking towards the end of September, the forecast adds: "By the early part of next week, a band of rain edges into the far northwest initially spreading across northern parts, eventually trying to sink south.

"Winds will be generally light but fresh along the east coast, and in the far north. Temperatures rather cool initially, with a risk of some rural grass frosts in the north at times."
