We said it was going to get warm and as things stand the UK is still in the firing line for a fine few days.
From sunday onwards temperatures should be in the range of 23-28c as one last spell of hot weather looks set.
Through Monday to Wednesday there is a risk of 30c + however there is still a large amount of uncertainty regarding just how hot it will peak at.
Unlike earlier on this summer the early signs suggest this wont be around for very long with Sunday to Wednesday looking like the best of the hot spell so make sure you get out there and enjoy it if sunny weather is what your after.
Currently weather model outputs are giving different scenarios beyond Wednesday however following the most likely scenarios this will likely be the back end of the hot spell with a return to near normal temperatures.
No matter where you are in the UK today you probably wont have seen much in the way of sunshine.
But dont pack the summer gear away just yet.
As we head into September high pressure situates itself nicely close to the UK eventually bringing a southerly wind.
This will lead to a spell of hot weather with temperatures potentially reaching 30c.
Unfortunately most weather models dont predict a long spell of hot weather so you may be best suited to making the most of it with the heatwave expected to last between the 2nd and 5th of September.
If may seem a mile away from summer right now but we have had it pretty damn good!
Infact it could still proove to be a record breaker, Beating that summer of 1976.
However if like me your wish for cooler weather was temporary then things might be looking up.
As we head towards the end of August/Early September many weather models point towards a high pressure dominated pattern.
The GFS model hints at high pressure strewn across the UK which would bring sunny days and highs of 25/26c whilst the ECMWF model believes the high pressure will be anchored over Germany thus leading to a Southerly wind flow across the UK and temperatures around 30c!
At this stage there is significant room for change but with cross model agreement of some late summer weather perhaps it’s not quite time to put the BBQ away.
