September is set to be ‘very warm’ according to the Met office
PARTS of Britain are set to bake in 28C sunshine today as Hurricane Gert brings in warm weather as forecasters predict a glorious Indian summer.
The Met Office also says there is a 55 per cent chance September could be “very warm” in their three-month forecast.
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.”
The Met Office three-month forecast said: “For August-October, there is an increased probability for warmer-than-average conditions.
“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.”
But it is important to remember the prediction is not as reliable as the five-day forecast because it is so far in advance.
The hottest day of the year was 34.5 degrees at Heathrow in London – Britain’s second-hottest June day for 167 years.
