One last burst of heat is forecast to scorch the UK before the Autumn dark nights and cooler air arrives later in September. Brian Gaze, a forecaster at Weather Outlook, predicted hot weather to sweep the nation early next week, with temperatures potentially even reaching 30C in England and Wales. He added hot air from continental Europe could linger until around Wednesday, September, 8, before showers and thunderstorms then strike.
Mr Gaze said: “Tomorrow cloud is likely to be more persistent than recently in the north west.
“The best of the sunny spells will probably be in southern England and western Wales. Feeling warm in the sun.
“By Sunday high pressure moves away eastwards and that allows very warm air from continental Europe to filter northwards.
“Sunday should be a fine day in much of the UK, with the sunniest periods in the south.
“It will be very warm in southern and central regions. There could be a few isolated showers, but most places miss them and remain dry. Later on outbreaks of rain spread across Northern Ireland and western Scotland.
“Tuesday is looking fine in most of the UK, but there could be a few showers in north eastern Scotland.
“In England and Wales it will be very warm or hot. Temperatures could reach 30C (86F).
“Things are expected to begin changing on Wednesday. Showers or thunderstorms probably push northeastwards across large parts of the UK. Scotland and north eastern England may stay dry.”
The latest heat charts from Netweather show temperatures nudging 30C at the start of next week.
On Monday, September 6, highs of 28C could bake London, Kent and Essex, while Brighton, Bournemouth, Manchester and Doncaster see 27C.
A day later on Tuesday, the maps show the heat becoming more widespread across the UK, with highs of 28C reaching as far north as Newcastle and Durham.
On the same day, North Yorkshire, London and Bristol could bask in 28C and Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Liverpool could see highs of 27C.

The BBC’s forecast for next week also said temperatures could be above average at the start of next week as warm air from Europe pushes into the UK.
The forecast said: “The UK will remain caught between two pressure systems for much of next week, with lower pressure to our west and higher pressure to our east.
“Neither of these systems will have full control over the weather leading to an east-west spilt in the cloudiness and rain.
“In addition, the orientation of these pressure systems should promote a warm southerly wind through France and into the UK, bringing us some warmer Mediterranean air for a while.
“Temperatures should be above average for most of the country throughout the week, especially for the southern half of the UK.”
The Met Office also expected hot air to bring “plenty of sunshine” early next week.
The latest forecast said: “Sunny spells developing today, but staying cloud for some.
“Fairly cloudy to begin with for many but bright or sunny spells will develop in some areas.
“Best of the sunshine western Scotland and parts of southern England. Staying cloudy for some, especially in the east.
“On Saturday, it will be fairly cloudy for many, especially during the morning. Bright or sunny intervals developing for some though, best of these in the south. Most areas staying dry.
“The outlook for Sunday to Tuesday will see some rain for northern, perhaps central parts on Sunday but for many it will remain dry throughout with plenty of sunshine.
“Becoming increasingly warm, locally hot.”
