Helen Roberts said: “Much of next week is looking generally fairly quiet and settled.

“There will be sunny spells widely from Tuesday, with high pressure and a lot of tropical air being drawn up.

“It’s a definite change after an unsettled early September.

“And the week from September 23 also looks like remaining fairly settled with high pressure, although the North-West may see some more unsettled weather at times.”

The Met Office said that it was 25C in London, and 24C in Southampton today

The Met Office website said most of Britain is set for “plenty of sunshine and warmth” over the coming days.

It added that next week will bring: “Predominantly settled conditions across the UK, with any wet and windy weather confined to the far north.”

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “26C is possible later in the coming week as a thrust of subtropical air brings Indian Summer-style conditions, with plenty of warm sunshine and beach weather for parts.”


Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: “Subtropical southerlies bring the prospect of fine, warm weather.

“The mid-20s may be seen, more typical of midsummer, before a downward trend in temperatures towards September 29.”
