Experts say that in the coming days, a ‘mini heat wave’ is going on in some parts of the UK, with which the temperature will reach 29 degrees Celsius.
The Meteorological Department said that in some areas, people will be in extreme heat and sunshine from Monday to Wednesday.
Some places can see an ‘official heatwave’, over 25C in central England and East Wales.
In Greater Manchester, the mercury – which will rise to 18C from the September average in the UK – is set to reach 24C on Monday and 27C on Tuesday and Wednesday.
But it won’t be long before thunderstorms are expected in the second half of the week.
“We expect temperatures to rise early next week,” said Annie Shuttleworth, a Met Office forecaster.
Despite the cloudy start on Monday, conditions will be clear and bright with warm temperatures for large parts of England and East Wales as the continental wind blows from the south.
The winds will begin to blow across the country on Tuesday and Wednesday, with temperatures reaching 29C for parts of the southeast, while Scotland and Northern Ireland will also move into the twenties.
“It will be very hot for the rest of the year and can be even more painful for people trying to sleep at night, with temperatures hovering around 18C in the evening.”
Ms Shuttleworth said it meant a “good chance” of an official heatwave for parts of central England and East Wales, with temperatures hovering around 25C over three days.
However, it warned of a low pressure area from the west on Wednesday afternoon, which would lead to gray and wet conditions for most parts of the UK on Thursday.
Thunderstorms and rain are also expected in the second half of the week.
The bookmaker Coral has reduced record odds in the UK from 2-1 to 4-5 in September.
A spokesman said: “Summer is not over yet and with a small heatwave, the chances of ending this month as a record hot September have increased significantly.”
