BRITS are set to sizzle in a week-long September heatwave thanks to warm air sweeping in from the south – with highs of 25C.

Hurricane Dorian and Tropical Storm Gabrielle’s super-high wind speeds are channelling mild air north meaning the UK is set for a week of sunny, hot weather.

According to the Met Office, tomorrow will see some rainfall across Northern Ireland and the West Coast of Scotland.

Thanks to “ex-Hurricane Dorian” however, the drizzle will ease off overnight with a clear start to Thursday as the weather improves.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Gabrielle will see some rain sweep in.

But showers will ease off and the storm will be nothing but a light breeze by the time it reaches the southeast of England.

Friday will be great, particularly in England and Wales with the weekend bringing bright sunshine and temperatures as high as 25C.

Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: “Temperatures well into the 20s are quite feasible after September 16.

“It could well become quite warm. There are indications high pressure will build.

And Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “It turns warmer and humid as the remnants of Dorian and Gabrielle feed tropical air to the UK.

“It turns warmer still at the weekend and early next week with high pressure, with 25C possible in the South.”

The good news comes after it was revealed that the UK was in for an Indian summer in the coming weeks.

The mercury is soaring back up as a plume of Saharan air follows the fallout from Hurricane Dorian.

High pressure bringing heat from north Africa to the UK will see brilliant autumn heat for at least the next week.
