Hello Sunshine! UK Temperatures To Hit 27C

Quote
Britain is in for the warmest start to autumn since 1985 - with temperatures expected to hit 27C.
Forecasters predict balmy weather lasting for several days, with temperatures in the mid-20s into October.
The south and east of the country should benefit the most, with temperatures up to 27C, compared with an average maximum of 16.1C for September.
Sky meteorologist Dr Chris England said high pressure over all of Britain should lead to a build-up in temperatures over the course of the week.
"We could be in for some very warm weather," Dr England said. "Things should hot up from Monday onwards."

An Indian summer is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs in the autumn. It refers to a period of considerably above normal temperatures, accompanied by dry and hazy conditions, usually after there has been a killing frost. Depending on latitude and elevation, the phenomenon can occur in the Northern Hemisphere between late September and mid November.

The Met Office has said next weekend's first days of October are expected to be the hottest since 1985.
That year saw the warmest October temperature ever recorded - a freak reading of 29.4C (84.9F) at March, Cambridgeshire, on October 1.

Enjoy the sun while it here. Get your snow chains ordered now. It's going to be a hard winter. I've stocked up with a tonne of coal to provide a standby to the gas fired central heating, just in case the Ukraine starts playing silly games.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

I'm afraid we maxed out at a relatively cool 26.3c today here in sunny Sheffield.
Warmest day of the week so far.

Re: Hello Sunshine! UK Temperatures To Hit 27C

I thought it was a nice few days over the weekend.
It's not technically an "indian summer" though from the report on the BBC the other day - we're missing the sharp frost before it.
