El Nino poised to heat up autumn
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
