There could be more days spent in parks and pub gardens yet this summer, according to the Met Office…
They have revealed in their long forecast that the higher than average temperatures are likely to return later in September and into October, but first there’s a bout of rain.
“There is an increased chance of some late season warm spells, with above average temperatures most likely,” says the Met Office.
But this Saturday looks to be the last pleasant day for a while. On Saturday it may reach highs of 26 Celsius, but colder, wetter weather is moving in come Sunday.
This is next week’s Met Office forecast so far: “Occasional showers on Sunday and Monday, a risk of heavy, thundery downpours at times. Still rather warm though. Turning drier and fresher by Tuesday. Often breezy.”
