‘Little blast of summer’ to send temperatures to 28C after grey August

‘Little blast of summer’ to send temperatures to 28C after grey August

A “little blast of summer” is finally on the way, with temperatures set to reach 28C next week, the Met Office has said. 

Parts of England will bask in weather comparable to holiday destinations such as St Tropez and Mykonos between Monday and Wednesday. 

After a grey and dispiriting August, the South East will experience the best of the weather, with warmer air being dragged in from the Mediterranean. 

Hurricane Ida has also caused a small dip in the jet stream, allowing low pressure to come near the UK while drawing up warm air from the south. However, this also brings the risk of rain as well as expected high temperatures.

Alex Burkill, a Met Office forecaster, said: “It does look like hot temperatures will start to arrive in the South East after a disappointing end to the summer. August had been particularly grey, dull with cooler temperatures, but it does look like there will be a little blast of summer weather.

“The week will start with temperatures reaching 27C (80.6F) on Monday. It’s likely to be dry and sunny for most, but this will only be the beginning.

“Tuesday is likely to be the hottest day, with temperatures probably reaching highs of 28C (82.4F) or even higher before the temperature drops slightly again on Wednesday.

“I have to say there is some uncertainty about how hot it will be, and it won’t be the case for the whole country.”

Earlier this week, the Met Office revealed that storms will be named after people’s pets in partnership with its Dutch and Irish counterparts, inviting submissions from the public. 

More than 10,000 were received, with people choosing the names of friends and family members, as well as household pets.

The first storm from the list of nominees, which runs from September this year to next August, will be called Arwen, a name thought to be of Welsh origin and popularised by JR. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings books.
