UK weather forecast 9am – Weather warnings in Scotland but South could see record September heatwave – LIVE UPDATES

SCOTLAND is set for a weekend of weather warnings while south of the UK will see a record September heatwave.

Yellow weather warnings for “heavy and persistent” rain are currently in place for large parts of the country on Saturday and Sunday. 

Meanwhile a much-needed September heatwave is set to bake the rest of the UK.

A 35C tropical plume is set to scorch Britain in the coming day in a dramatic change of weather.

And after a chilly start to the season, Brits have been given the all clear to “get the barbecues back out” this weekend.

Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said: “Just as people were putting away the barbecues and sun creams, it’s time to get them back out again.

“Early next week we are likely to see temperatures lift into the 30Cs across parts of Britain as heat arrives with a vengeance.”

SEPTEMBER ODDS ON WITH BOOKIES TO BE HOTTEST EVER

This month is odds on with bookmaker Coral to be the hottest since records began, at 4-5.

“The UK is set for a warm spell next week and it’s going to push this month into the mix to be the hottest September we’ve ever had.

“We now make it odds on to happen,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

WEATHER FORECAST: OCTOBER 2020

Although it is far in advance, meteorologists can get a sense of the weather which will be coming up in the next months.

Between September 26 and October 10, the UK is likely to see alternating periods of relatively settled weather, bringing an increased risk of mist and fog in the morning.

There will also be more unsettled conditions, which would see typical autumnal wet and windy weather.

Overall, temperatures are expected to average out during this period around or slightly above the normal.

WEATHER FORECAST: SEPT 16 – SEPT 25

The Met Office has said that weather for this coming Wednesday until the following Friday will be mainly dry, settled weather which will be bringing sunny spells.

The best of these conditions will likely be found in the northwest.

However, there is a chance of the odd thundery shower, more especially in southern and southwestern areas.

Above average temperatures are likely for many locations and it could be very warm in the south, whilst the northeast may feel rather cold.

SCORCHER FOR THE SOUTH EAST

Commenting on the return of high temperatures later in the weekend, Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Nick Silkstone, said: “Along with the dry and sunny weather, southern areas of the UK will see temperatures rise due to a combination of high pressure and warm air from the continent.”

“On Sunday temperatures across central and southern England will reach into the low to mid 20’s Celsius and it’ll turn warmer still as we start the new week, with temperatures possibly reaching around 29 or 30 Celsius in the south east early next week.”

“After a wet and windy end to August, which saw two named storms, this weather is very welcome.

“Warm air is arriving from the Continent.

“We’re already seeing temperatures increase, particularly across London and the south east.

“We’ll really start to notice it on Sunday with 25C on the cards, before 31C on Monday and again Tuesday.”

WEATHER WARNING: MORE DETAILS

The Met Office said: “Heavy and persistent rain is expected to develop over western Scotland during Saturday evening and continue through much of Sunday.

“Many places in the highlighted region will see 25-50 mm of rainfall however, over the hills and mountains, peak totals of 120-160 mm are likely during this time.

“In association with the rainfall, there will be a period of strong southwesterly winds, although these are not expected to be overly impactful, they may make travelling conditions more challenging in places.”

The yellow warnings are in place for Saturday and Sunday, covering Perth and Kinross, Stirling, Highland, and Argyll and Bute.

YELLOW WARNINGS: WHAT WE KNOW

Two weather warnings are in place over the weekend, as Brits in the north and Scotland are set to be battered with rain.

Floods are likely, and spray on roads will make journeys more difficult in the affected region.

Rainfall could be as heavy as 160mm in some hilly areas.

LOW PRESSURE IN THE NORTH

On Saturday, there will be low pressure in the north of Britain, with high-pressure building from the southwest.

This will bring showers in the far northwest, where there is also a yellow weather warning in place.

Across the rest of the UK, conditions will be dry and bright for the most part.

MERCURY TO HIT 30C

Brits are expected to get an end of summer scorcher this week, as mercury is set to hit 30C.
