‘Changeable weather conditions’

The Met Office said areas of low pressure in the Atlantic and a ‘rejuvenated jet stream’ are sending weather fronts and showery conditions across the UK.

This has brought ‘changeable weather conditions’ this weekend and will continue into the start of next week.

A spokesperson added: “The trend through to the middle of next week is for the weather to slowly turn drier and a little warmer as high pressure builds to the west of the UK, although some areas are still likely to see some shower activity, primarily southeast and northwestern regions.

"However, there is currently no indication that we will see a return to the heatwave conditions of earlier this month, with temperatures likely peaking Wednesday across the southeast.”

The Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist, Adam Thornhill, said: “While high pressure often brings fine and dry weather at this time of the year, with this system likely building to the west of the UK, cooler air is forecast to be bought southwards across the country from the north.

“Combine this with daylight hours shortening as we move towards September, and temperatures are unlikely to reach the same level as we have seen at times earlier this summer.”
