UK weather: Are you ready for a bonafide Indian Summer?

Summer 2015 was, let’s face it, a total washout.

But it seems as if we’re about to swap all of that soggy weather for a beautifully sunny week.

In fact, it’s going to feel more like summer (the hot kind, as opposed to the wet and miserable British kind) than September.

Richard Chapman, forecaster for The Weather Network, told us: “There's a weather feature that forecasters hate predicting the movement of more than anything else; high pressure cloud! And for the next couple of days we are going to have quite a job of forecasting cloud amounts, especially across eastern parts of the country.

“However the high pressure responsible for our cloud problems will also be responsible for bringing fine and sunny weather to many parts of the country this week.”

He continued to explain that, while the nights are set to be tinged with that all-too familiar autumnal chill (look out for frost in the mornings!), it’s going to be dry and warm in the daytime - particularly in the west of England, who are set to enjoy highs of up to 21C.

And it’s going to get better and better throughout the week.

He added: “During the rest of the week the high pressure stays with us, but as it moves away to the east the winds change direction to become more of a southeasterly.

“It may become a little breezier, but that change in direction brings both dry air and warmer air too with tops ranging from 20 to 24C. So look for more sunshine, dry and warm days, but still those early autumnal chilly nights.”
