Met Office issues worrying update after September heatwave

The Met Office has warned Brits the country may not experience much more amazing weather after this week’s mini heatwave.

Most of the country has experienced extremely hot temperatures this week with some areas seeing highs of 26C.

However, it seems the hot weather won’t last much longer because of showers and thunderstorms at the end of the week.

According to weather experts, unsettled and showery conditions will be the main theme of the weather for Thursday and Friday.

A yellow weather warning was issued yesterday, Tuesday, September 7, for the Midlands and Wales.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Harris said: “The hot and clear weather currently being experienced across large parts of the UK is forecast to break down through the middle of the week as showers and thunderstorms arrive.

“These will initially affect the southwest of the UK on Wednesday, before moving steadily north and developing across most areas through Thursday and Friday.

“Thunderstorm warnings have been issued across a number of areas to highlight the potential for isolated impacts, including surface water flooding of homes and businesses, disruption to transport, and very isolated damage to infrastructure from lightning or hail.

“The semi-random nature of showers and thunderstorms means that many places will not see any thunderstorms at all, so it’s not possible at this range to be more precise about the locations at risk, or indeed be more confident about the potential for impacts.”

Although many areas will avoid the worst of the showers, thundery downpours are possible in the area and between 30mm and 50mm of rain could fall in less than three hours, although only a few spots are likely to see those totals.

Elsewhere in the UK, and especially in the north and east, Wednesday will remain a fine, dry day with heatwave thresholds likely to be reached in some eastern parts of England.
