Meteorologist Charlie Powell said the remnants of Hurricane Gert could bring more “tropical and humid” conditions to southern and eastern parts as Monday begins.

The former category two hurricane is going to be “wrapped up in existing pressure” and weakened as it moves across the Atlantic Ocean, likely bringing humidity and balminess to the South.

If it hits 26C (78.8F) or 27C (80.6F) on Monday, that will make it the warmest day of August.

And after a wet and windy August, the mercury could reach up to 30 degrees in the first weeks of September.

A  Met Office spokesman said: “Temperatures  may become warm or very warm at times, especially in the south.”

“Temperatures may become warm or very warm at times, especially in the south.”

“Above-average temperatures are more probable than below-average.

“The probability the UK average temperature will fall into the warmest of our five categories is 50-55 per cent.”

The hottest day of the year was 34.5 degrees at Heathrow in London – Britain’s second-hottest June day for 167 years.
