WARM WEATHER

The extremely strong winds of Hurricane Dorian and Tropical Storm Gabrielle channel a gentle wind to the north, which means that much of the UK is diving into a hot, sunny week.

The drizzle will dissipate to give a clear start to Thursday with the improved weather and the arrival of the heatwave in the southeast.

But the remains of Tropical Storm Gabrielle will also see rain seeping in.

These showers will dissipate and the storm will be no more than a light breeze when it reaches the southeast of England.

Friday will be sunny, especially in England and Wales, where the weekend will be sunny and temperatures as high as 25 ° C.

John Hammond, a former BBC and Met Office forecaster, said, "After September 16, temperatures in the 1920s are quite achievable.

"It could become very hot. There are indications that high pressure will build. "

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: "It's hotter and wet as the remains of Dorian and Gabrielle fuel the UK with tropical air.

"It's even hotter at the end of the week and early next week with high pressure, with 25 ° C possible in the south."

The good news comes after the revelation that the UK is going to experience an Indian summer in the coming weeks.

Mercury soars while a plume of Saharan air follows the fallout of Hurricane Dorian.

The high pressure bringing heat from North Africa to the UK will be under fire in the fall for at least next week.
