There will be no heatwave this month, with Britons being warned to expect temperatures in the ‘teens at best’ throughout September.
The likelihood of a heatwave sending temperatures soaring in September has been ruled out by WEATHER broadcaster John Hammond.
Weatherman John Hammond has shot down fears that Britons could be subjected to a scorching period in September. He predicted that most sections of the country would see temperatures in the teens. Temperatures in Northern Ireland and western Scotland could reach the mid-twenties at best, according to Mr Hammand. He spoke to GB News on the condition of anonymity. “I can certainly state that there are no signs of a heat wave approaching.”
“The breaking news is that there is no heatwave on the way,” Mr Hammond told GB News.
“The gloom that is currently engulfing the United Kingdom is expected to last for several days.
“Imagine the scene: I was at a BBQ with another weatherman yesterday, and we were sitting outside in our shorts.
“We were comparing our isobars as the beautiful rain descended from above.
“I’m aware of a little contrived narrative in one of the papers, in which quotes have been plucked out of context to create a piece that says a heat wave is on the way.
“I can certainly state that there are no signs of a heat wave on the horizon.
“In the best of the sunshine, and there ain’t much of it out there, but in the best of the sunshine throughout Northern Ireland and western Scotland over the next several days, we might get up into the low twenties,” says the forecaster.
“Mid-twenties could be pushing it, but for the most part, we’re still in our teens.”
Temperatures are failing to climb due to a cold breeze sweeping across the UK, according to BBC Weather meteorologist Carol Kirkwood.
“There will be some brightness, but for the most part, it will be gloomy, and once again, there will be some patchy light rain or perhaps drizzle, mainly but not primarily in the east,” she said on BBC Breakfast on Tuesday.
“And we’ve got that chilly breeze blowing in from the North Sea as well as through the English Channel towards the east.
“Today, the highest likelihood of seeing breakouts is in portions of southeast England.
“For the rest of England and much of Wales, there is a lot of cloud.”
“One or two breaks across some,” Ms Kirkwood added. “Brinkwire Summary News.”
