UK weather – Brits to enjoy ‘Indian Summer’ this weekend as temperatures rise to 17C after flood chaos


BRITS are set to enjoy an Indian Summer this weekend as temperatures are looking to rise to 17C.

The unusually warm weather follows days of rain battering the country, causing flooding chaos in parts.

It could be ice cream day tomorrow as parts of the UK are set to enjoy temperatures of up to 17C

London is forecast to be the hottest place in the UK at 2pm tomorrow

But much of the UK will tomorrow wake to mild temperatures.

They will be surrounded by fog and low cloud, which will slowly clear as the day goes on.

And the MetOffice said when that does clear the southern and central parts of the country will be able to bask in the sunshine.

With that comes the rise of temperatures – and London is set to hit a whopping 17C at 2pm.

Cardiff will trail slowly behind, hitting 16C, and Plymouth is set to reach 15C.

And while parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland will ensure some rainfall, it’s set to be a relatively warm day for much of the country.

The temperatures resemble an Indian Summer, which is a period of unseasonably warmer, drier, calmer weather.

Sunday is set to be much the same – fine once the morning cloud lifts.

Northern Ireland is set to endure more rain on Sunday which will be a taster for next week.

The Metoffice said in its five-day forecast that the country’s weather is “turning unsettled into next week, with rain in most areas by Tuesday”.

The forecast comes just hours after the Met Office issued an urgent yellow warning for parts of the country, stating heavy rain could cause disruption and flooding.

It also comes after reports that snow is set to hit the UK in a week as a jet stream sends temperatures plummeting.

A wxcharts forecast map shows wintery spells throughout the coming week, including snow in Scotland and the North West on November 18 and 19.

According to the chart, parts of the country could see up to 2cm of snow per hour on Saturday, November 19.

At the same time, much of the rest of the UK is braced for heavy rain sweeping across from the West.
