Chances of a September Indian summer on Merseyside looking less likely


Those hoping for the appearance of a warm September Indian summer could be left disappointed, as the mixed theme of some sunshine, cloud and rain is expected to continue into September.

This summer didn’t start off too bad as the first week of July saw temperatures of up to 32C across the area.

But the unsettled theme with a few brief sunny appearances we have seen all through August, is expected to continue throughout September, with no signs of any increase temperatures.

This summer has also been one of the coldest and wettest in the last few years, a Met Office spokesman told the Mirror: “statistics show the UK mean temperature for this summer will be around 14C. This is 0.4C below the long-term average.

“Rainfall overall is slightly higher than average, with the UK so far having seen 271mm of rain, which is 13 per cent above the long-term average.

“In general the weather has been dominated by a westerly flow from the Atlantic, bringing often cool and rather wet conditions, especially in the north and west”.
