Britons are set for a glorious start to September with bright sunshine and soaring temperatures forecast. The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Glaze has said a “significant warming trend” is on the way from Saturday, September 4.
The latest temperature models show the mercury continuing to climb in London from next weekend onwards.
Temperature charts predict thermometers will rise into the mid-twenties and beyond in the capital from September 4-11.
A mini-heatwave could also be on the cards, as on at least two days temperatures are set to peak at 30C, certain models suggest.
In a post on Twitter, the Weather Outlook wrote: “Overnight probability forecasts showing a significant warming trend >04/09.
“A few runs reaching 30C.”
An area of high pressure is set to grip the UK during the first few weeks of September and Netweather’s maximum temperature charts show vast areas of the country during a shade of red.
Plumes of warm air are forecast to push in, with central and southern areas set for the best conditions.
The Met Office long-range forecast from Sep 1-10: says: “High pressure likely to hang on at first bringing a continuation of largely fine and dry weather.
“The centre of the high is likely to remain to the northwest of the UK.
“To start, this period will likely see the best of any sunshine in the west or northwest with more cloud in the east and the chance of a very isolated slight shower along North Sea Coasts.
“Continuing through this period, winds likely light to moderate, but fresh for North Sea coasts.
“Temperatures likely to be near average for most, but below average and cool in eastern regions under the influence of the fresh northeastly breeze with more persistent coastal cloud.”
This bank holiday weekend Britons expected dry and sunny spells with highs of 25C.
Met Office forecast Grahame Madge said: “It will be a largely fine and settled weekend; there’s very little – if any – rain in the forecast.”
He said the best conditions can be expected in Northern Ireland and western Scotland on Saturday.

Mr Madge said the area of high pressure is set to remain “until at least the end of next week” with “fine and settled weather to come for some considerable period of time”.
He added: “It looks as though it is locked in for a while.
“Therefore, although temperatures may come down a little bit, there should still be plenty of bright conditions and plenty of weather for people to enjoy over the bank holiday.”
Next month the Met Office forecaster said there is a “fairly strong signal” for conditions to be warmer than average, while rainfall levels are expected to be close to average.
