Met Office and BBC Weather on ‘heatwave’ and tropical storm threat to September

Met Office and BBC Weather have revealed how long the late summer blast could last amid a threat of tropical storms.

Large parts of England are enjoying a largely dry and warm Bank Holiday weekend, although the threat of showers looms.

But temperatures are expected to climb in the latter stages of next week, bringing highs of around 26C to the South of England by Saturday (September 4)

The BBC has confirmed ‘high pressure looks likely to stick around’ and the Met Office says there will be ‘some spells of sunshine’.

But after the first two weeks of September, Met Office forecasters warn a Tropical storm could bring ‘uncertainty’.

A spokesperson for the BBC told Birmingham Live: “High pressure looks a bit more likely to stick around through the bank holiday weekend and into the first week of September before gradually declining away.

This means the first few days of autumn will tend to keep things largely dry across the UK with some warmth in western and northern areas.

“With high pressure to our northwest, a cooler easterly wind in the North Sea and southern half of the UK will keep the temperatures a little below average there.

“Towards the first weekend of September, there are some signals that low pressure may begin to push in as the high starts to weaken and shift north. However, confidence is a bit low on the exact timing, and this could hold off until the following week.”

High pressure still in charge at first. Most areas will see a continuation of dry weather, except for light rain or drizzle over windward coasts and hills, with variable cloud and some spells of sunshine.

Temperatures are likely to be close to average for most, but rather cool in eastern regions. Over the weekend, as the high pressure begins to breakdown, outbreaks of rain may start to spread to some southern and western areas, with mostly dry weather continuing elsewhere. Into the following week, unsettled weather continues to push eastwards, bringing showers or longer spells of rain across many parts of the UK.

North and eastern areas hanging onto the quiet conditions for the longest. Winds remain light to moderate, but stronger in the northwest later, and temperatures around average.

The influence of tropical storm activity brings some uncertainty to this period. An unsettled spell is most likely for the middle of September, the focus for this toward the northwest of the UK, with the south and southeast perhaps holding on to drier weather.

Toward the end of the month, it looks like a trend toward drier weather will begin, especially across the south. Temperatures are likely to be near to or a little above average for the time of year.
