El Nino poised to heat up au­tumn

Cynon Valley - - YOUR NEWS -

THE im­pact of the Pa­cific weather sys­tem El Nino could see un­sea­son­ably warm tem­per­a­tures sit­ting over South Wales for much of the week, even as Oc­to­ber be­gins.

De­spite the leaves on trees start­ing to change colour, the blast of warm weather will put feel­ings of au­tumn on pause for the time be­ing as tem­per­a­tures reach a pre­dicted 17C in var­i­ous parts of the coun­try.

El Nino is the name given to the warm­ing of the Pa­cific which boosts tem­per­a­tures in Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber around west­ern Europe.

Tem­per­a­tures will be ris­ing to around 17C, three de­grees above the 14C aver­age.

The Met Of­fice pre­dicts a sunny but chilly start to the week, grad­u­ally turn­ing cloudier.

But from Tues­day on­wards, fore­cast­ers say that’s when the warmer weather ar­rives, with the days to fol­low ex­pected to be dry with sunny spells.

There is a warn­ing of some pos­si­ble rain on Thurs­day, how­ever.

And we could be set for even more good news in the com­ing months.

The Met Of­fice fore­cast models show a 60% to 80% chance of a warmer-than-aver­age three months un­til the end of De­cem­ber.

There’s plenty of sun this week
