Temperatures on the rise again as UK could see hottest September day in 55 years


Just after we thought Summer had fizzled out, temperatures will increase once again this week.

Warmer air is forecast to reach the UK from Monday, but it’s Tuesday and Wednesday that will see the highest of temperatures.

Forecasters have predicted that Tuesday could see the hottest September day in 55 years, as temperatures could reach over 31C near London.

If the temperature rises above 31.6C, which was reached at Gatwick on September 2, 1961, then it will be the hottest day for 55 years.

Merseyside will see the warmest of the weather on Wednesday when the region could see temperatures of 26C.

A Met Office forecaster said: “Basically we’ve got air coming up from the south. The origins of this air is generally southern France and northern Spain, where things are fairly warm at this time of the year. So we’ll start to see things warming up.”

By the end of the week there will be more unsettled conditions, as a band of heavy rain to parts of the UK.
