July’s steaming temperatures put Britain on the verge of a drought in one of the UK’s most intense heatwaves.
August brought intense rainfall with relief for gardeners and farmers.
And after a week of chillier temperatures, the weekend has seen bright sunshine and a hint of things to come.
Warm weather in the UK is predicted to hold out once again as the mercury again reaches into the mid-twenties.
Although some were beginning to feel the Autumn chill, Summer looks like its here to stay for a little longer.
The Met Office has set out an immediate five-day forecast which predicts clear skies and warm temperatures up to 23C.
Meteorologist Alex Deakin said: “The first of September, meteorologically at least, means it is the start of autumn.
“But fear not, if you like a bit of warm sunshine, there will still be some of that around this weekend.”
For the weekend, temperatures are to stay in the mid-twenties, around 24C.
While the hotter temperatures continue during the day, the clear skies open up the chance for slightly more bearable nights.
September 2018 is now at risk of being the hottest ever according to odds from British bookmakers Ladbrokes.
Ladbrokes has recently updated its odds that September could progress to be the hottest ever.
Currently, the company has odds pegged at 9/4 that this month will go down as the hottest of its kind in history.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “September’s Indian Summer is hugely welcome after August’s washout, and although it’s early days, the forecast is looking bright.”
Ladbrokes predictions could well match up, as forecasters are bracing for the latest heatwave to last into November.
How long could the next heatwave last?
The fresh batch of heatwave temperatures could now last until November, according to the latest predictions from the Met Office.
Apparently, sea-surface temperatures around the North Atlantic Ocean are to usher in high pressure, associated with above-average temperatures in Autumn.
Predictions set out in the Met Office three-month contingency plan outline that the probability the country will see above average temperatures continue into November is 40 percent.
Historically, the probability for these temperatures rests around 20 percent.
