Britons are set to be given another blast of September sunshine next week, which could see temperatures rise to close to 30C (86F). Such is the searing band of heat, the UK could see highs of 28C (82.4F) on September 16, according to The Weather Outlook. Posting a series of weather charts on Twitter, the Weather Outlook wrote: “GFS 00z op run showing the possibility of very warm weather returning for a time next week. September could be notably warm.”
One of the charts, showing maximum temperatures, showed some parts of London reaching 28C, with much of the south and southeast of the UK basking in 26-27C heat.
The chart – accurate for 3pm on Thursday, September 16, also showed the Midlands remain between 22-24C (71-75F).
While the mercury will be cooler, the southwest and North of England could see temperatures between 20-23C (68-73.F), the map suggests.
It comes as UK max temperature models by Netweather also indicate heat returning next week.
One chart shows the UK hit highs of 28C in eastern England, and around 26C near the capital on Wednesday 15.
Looking at Thursday, the chart shows much of England turn a shade of red as temperatures range between 25-27C across the country.
Looking ahead to the rest of this week, the Met Office reports that the temperatures will intensify.
But, following the hot weather, the weather agency did warn of the chance of thunderstorms in some parts of the country.
