Met Office forecasters predict the UK will be ‘split’ by differing weather scenarios next month.
The good news for us is that the south of England is expected to get the lion’s share of any pleasant weather for the first two weeks.
But those living in the North of England are unlikely to be quite as smug, given strong winds and heavy rain are likely.
However, people shouldn’t get carried away down south given warm spells are most likely to be few and far between as all hope appears to be lost for a hot blast before the summer is out.
Many people across the UK have longed to see another hot spell, but not to the extent of the ‘extreme’ temperatures experienced in July.
The Met Office has said in its latest update for September 2-16: “Confidence (is) exceptionally low across this period.
“The most probable scenario is that conditions be close to what is expected for late summer and early autumn. A possible northwest/southeast split is also likely.
“Showers or longer spells of rain, together with strong winds, may affect northwestern areas, with these conditions spreading southeast to other parts of the UK at times.
“Any more prolonged dry and settled weather is most likely in the southeast. Temperatures are expected to be near average, perhaps warmer in the south and east.”
According to the latest weather charts from Netweather.tv, temperatures could reach between 22-24C across the South of England on Wednesday, September 1.
