Hot weather to last until October, predicts the Met Office
The Met Office say the heatwave could last until October

It has been a record breaking summer and the hot weather looks set to continue as the Meteorological Office has revealed England could be in-store for an Indian Summer.

In a briefing document the Met Office said “For August, and for August-September-October as a whole, above-average temperatures are more likely than below-average temperatures.

“Overall, the probability that the UK-average temperature for August-September-October will fall into the coldest of our five categories is less than 5 per cent, and the probability that it will fall into the warmest of our five categories is around 55 per cent (the 1981-2010 probability for each of these categories is 20 per cent).”

The weather prediction comes as much of the UK and Europe bakes in a heat wave which has seen temperatures in England regularly above 30C, whilst in Europe temperatures are on the verge of reaching a record breaking 48C.

But it is not all sunshine and hot weather for Brits.

In a long range forecast the Met Office has said many parts of the country will experience a much awaited downpour with wet and windy weather expected across the south east, then moving north east later this week and into next.
