‘Unsettled’ September weather will be miserable for most with cloud and drizzle

Forecasters have warned Brits to expect another washout month with heavy wind and rain expected to lash parts of the country during an “unsettled” September

This summer has seen washout weather for many

The warmer Bank Holiday weekend weather could be the last of the summer sunshine as experts warn of heavy wind and rain to come.

Tuesday will see another cloudy day for most along with some rain in the east of the country.

Temperatures will stay cool and will only reach above 20C in the south of England, with mid-teens expected across the nation.

And forecasters have warned Brits to expect another washout month with heavy wind and rain expected to lash parts of the country during an “unsettled” September.

Large swathes of the country may see their last glimpses of summer weather for the year this week, with a miserable month ahead.

The Met Office has put this down to an area of low pressure set to move in from Sunday, combined with the effects of “increased tropical storm activity” in the US.

Alex Burkill, a Met Office forecaster, said: “It’s fair to say the beginning of the month will be rather settled, with high pressure dominating.

“There will be drizzle and cloud in the east this week, but in the west certain regions will certainly hit the low 20s and see glimpses of sunshine here and there.



Temperatures will remain cool today




“However, this could perhaps be the last of the summery weather until the end of September, with a prolonged spell of unsettled conditions and low pressure from Sunday.”

Mr Burkill warned that September is likely to see “more rain and wind” than in August, which was wetter than average in parts of the South East and London.









He went on to say: “The low-pressure, along with the increased tropical storm activity across the Atlantic will certainly give the month a more autumnal- feel than previous years.

“The temperature is likely to remain around the average for the year, perhaps dipping a bit cooler until the end of the month – when it may well get drier again.”
