UK weather forecast: Indian summer for the South as North faces TORRENTIAL rain | Weather | News

Forecasters have predicted an Indian summer for the South, with temperatures warming up to the early 20C. 

However, other areas of the UK are not so lucky, with temperatures forecast to plummet to the low teens across northern England and Scotland. 

The mercury could rise to a balmy 22C in some parts of the southeast on Thursday when the warmth will be at its peak.

These increasing temperatures are unseasonably warm, as with Autumn beginning on Sunday, September 23 some may expect colder, bleaker weather. 

It will feel like Autumn in some parts of the country, however with cool and wet conditions hitting the North in the next few days. 

This is partially due to residual moisture from Hurricane Florence, which may then combine with northern weather fronts in order to increase chances of windy and rainy conditions. 

Dr Claire Kennedy-Edwards, senior meteorologist of The Weather Channel said: “There’ll be some cool nights to start the week with a touch of frost in the more sheltered parts with lows widely 3-5C inland.

“It’ll become less cold through the week especially in the south.

“On Wednesday and Thursday, the South will remain largely sunny and dry, thanks to higher pressure.

“But a number of fronts will cross the western and northern parts of the British Isles, bringing more cloud and rain here, as well as gentle to moderate winds.”

Across the majority of the UK conditions will be mostly dry and fine today, however, those living towards the West and North should expect a wet day. 

The Met Office said into tonight, skies will begin to cloud over in Scotland and Northern Ireland with rain and gales expected. 

Some parts of northern England may also feel windy tonight. 

Tomorrow forecasters predict that rain will continue overnight and spread slightly southeastwards, however, the rest of the country will have bright and warmer conditions. 

There may also be some fog patches in the South.

On Thursday, temperatures will rise to up to 3-5C above the average for this time of year across the south, as highs of 22C are predicted. 

In the West, there will be persistent torrential rain, as cloud and wind cover the North. 

From then on the southern portion of the UK will see the driest and warmest weather compared to the North and Scotland. 

Into the weekend weather may become changeable in the North. 

There is a risk of single figure temperatures in some northern areas this weekend, with a potential for fog and mist on a morning. 

For next week Dr Kennedy-Edwards said, “The outlook for the start of October is for the cool dry conditions to dominate north-west Europe.”
