UK weather: Britain set for 3 MONTHS of heavy rain with muggy ‘above average’ temperatures | Weather | News


Widespread showers gales are expected across large parts the country before a prolonged Indian winter brings warm air across the UK. The turn in the weather is expected to begin later today with heavy rain forecast across northern and western areas with the risk of localised fooding. The Met Office currently has four flood warnings in the north east and south east of England, near Wales, as River levels rise.

There is also an addition 31 flood alerts in place across all four regions of England and Wales.

The deluge is expected to continue throughout September with it being “wetter than normal going into October”.

Met Office meteorologist Marco Petagna said: “For the next three months, we can expect above average temperatures.

“But those will be accompanied with wet weather, and it’s set to be wetter than normal going into October.

“There’s a 60 percent chance of this autumn being in the warmest category.

“However, we’re set to a lot of rain in September mixed in with some wind.”

The Met Office long range forecast said this month has “very mixed signals” but current weather patterns suggest the UK should expect a “fair amount of unsettled” conditions but temperatures are predicted to be “above average”.

It added: “Overall we should expect spells of rain or showers, which could be heavy at times, interspersed with brief periods of quieter and more settled weather.

“A more prolonged spell of settled weather may develop towards the end of September, but there remains a lot of uncertainty in the forecast.

“Temperatures are expected to vary around average for the time of year and, perhaps, become a touch higher than average later in the period.”

Today showers will persist in Scotland, the North of England and Northern Ireland before moving southwards in the evening.

There will be highs of 21C in the south and 16C for the north.

Met Office Meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “The daily showers will move their way southeastwards.

“The best of the dry sunny weather will be across southern parts of Wales and southern counties of England.

The best of the sunny spells will be in eastern England.
