UK weather forecast – 25C weekend to start 10-DAY heatwave as Indian summer kicks off

BRITS are set to bask in glorious sunshine this weekend as an Indian summer kicks in.

Autumn is due to be postponed by a 10-day heatwave which should see highs of up to 25C in some parts of the country.


Blue will fill the skies of England and Wales, giving sun worshippers a final few rays before the all the leaves turn brown, and the skies turn grey.

Unfortunately for those in Scotland and Northern Ireland, some cloud will dampen the spirits with some rain on Saturday before clearing up later.

Met Office meteorologist, Helen Roberts, said: “It’s more of the same for the rest of the day, lots of warm sunshine and a largely dry and bright picture for most of the UK.

“Overnight it will go quite chilly owing to clear skies but that should warm up quickly tomorrow with for many lots of nice warm sunshine around, with a band of rain in northwest Scotland.

“That narrow band of rain will work its way down, gradually weakening and leaving sunshine on either side.

“Sunday will remain largely fine with a bit more cloud but highs of up to 25C in London and the South East.”

The Met Office website said most of Britain is in for “plenty of sunshine and warmth” over the coming days.

It added that next week will bring: “Predominantly settled conditions across the UK, with any wet and windy weather confined to the far north.

“There'll be some warm sunshine, but some chilly nights, with overnight fog patches possible.

“Temperatures are expected to be around average, and possibly warm in the south at first, but cool by night with air frosts likely in prone locations.”

BBC weatherman Matt Taylor said we would be in for a “fantastic Friday, almost UK wide” with a longer term forecast predicting 10 days of sunshine.
