‘A change is on the way’ as Met Office predicts weather forecast to turn more fall from next week
Posted: Sat 25 Sep 2021
The weather is expected to turn more autumnal starting next week as the Met Office predicts that the sun and warm conditions will begin to change.
It has been unusually hot in recent weeks with temperatures peaking at 28C in parts of the UK – this month on its way to be one of the hottest September on record.
However, on Monday (September 27) conditions will start to change, with the Met Office expecting an “active weather” front to bring heavy rain and high winds as it pushes from the west across the UK.
Although temperatures are dropping to or below normal for the time of year, the Met Office said they are expected to “slowly recover above average as October approaches.”
Conditions should feel more autumnal with heavy showers and gusty winds on the path.
This is a “stark contrast” to what September has brought so far, with many areas experiencing below average wind speeds – parts of the UK experiencing their highest average wind speeds. low for 20 years.
Last winter, spring and summer also saw below average wind speeds for the UK.
A spokesperson for the Met Office explained: âIn the UK our weather is predominantly from the west, weather systems crossing the Atlantic bring wet and often windy weather to our coasts.
“However, the positioning of the high and low pressure systems has led to a weakening at times of the usual westerly airflow through the UK resulting in calmer and drier conditions than normal. ‘rainfall in August and September has now also been below normal for England and Wales. “
Met Office expert meteorologist Adam Thornhill added: The influence of high pressures rising from the Azores.
“However, a change in position of the jet stream brings about a change in our weather next week, allowing a cold front associated with a low pressure system in the North Atlantic to propagate eastward, bringing wet and windy conditions. across the country throughout Monday.
“Behind the cold front, conditions will be much more autumnal with a cooler feeling and heavy showers for many.”
