The latest weather charts and forecasts predict Brits will bask in 27C (80.6F) heat across the UK on Saturday, September 4 as high pressure moves in from Spain. NetWeather’s long-range temperatures charts turn blood red as high pressure becomes more dominant across the UK.
The GFS model charts show the majority of England except for Cumbria and South West England will see temperatures at 26C (78.8F) and 27C at 3pm on this day.
Meanwhile, the mercury will peak at between 23C (73.4F) and 24C (75.2F) across Wales and between 22C (71.6F) and 23C across the South West.
The blood-red colours however are a more modest yellow in Scotland.
The mercury will be as high as 25C (77F) across the North East and slightly colder in the Scottish Highlands at around 18C (64.4F), according to the maximum temperature charts.
The warm spell is expected to last for around 48 hours and will extend into Monday, September 6 before cooling.
The charts reveal temperatures by 3pm on this date will maintain a rate of 25C or 26C across the southern half of England, whilst the northern half will range between 21C (69.8F) and 24C.
The South West of England, Scotland and Wales will have more modest ranges of between 22C and 23C, 20C (68F) and 22C and 17C (62.6F) and 20C retrospectively.
Netweather’s long-range forecast said high pressure would be “more frequent than average” for the start of September.
Forecasters said the highest pressure will “probably transfer south and east, resulting in warmer temperatures.”
The increased temperatures next month comes after Met Office forecasters said areas including London have already seen a month’s worth of average rainfall for August with 12 days still to go.
Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said the City of London has had 117 percent of its usual August rainfall already, with 60mm (2.4in) of rain falling on the capital up to August 19, compared with 51mm (2in) usually seen over the entire month.
Northern Ireland has had 91mm (3.6in) of rain – 93 percent of its 97mm (3.8in) average for the month.

Mr Dewhurst added that overall UK temperatures and rainfall for the time of year are “about average”.
