Hur­ri­cane brings back sum­mer

Sunday Express - - Front Page - By Nathan Rao

BRI­TAIN is about to en­joy a late burst of sum­mer with the sun­shine re­turn­ing next week.

The mer­cury is ex­pected to nudge the 80s Fahren­heit across the South with vir­tu­ally the en­tire coun­try in for a fort­night of good weather.

The cheery out­look is partly due to ex-Hur­ri­cane Cris­to­bal drag­ging hot air in from the con­ti­nent as it clips past the tip of the UK this week­end.

The rem­nants of the storm are, how­ever, ex­pected to trig­ger wind and rain in the North to­day and to­mor­row be­fore al­low­ing high pres­sure to build from Mon­day.

Temperatures in the South are ex­pected to hit the high 70s by the end of the week with ther­mome­ters reach­ing the high 60s else­where.

With build­ing hu­mid­ity it could feel close to 86F (30C) in some re­gions with even the far North get­ting close to 79F. The Met Of­fice said things will start to feel warmer from to­mor­row with temperatures above av­er­age for the time of year.

Vet­eran BBC broad­caster Michael Fish said: “There’s an­other help­ing of sum­mer on the way next week.”

Netweather fore­caster Nick Fin­nis said north­ern and western parts will con­tinue to be windy af­ter gales yes­ter­day.

Some places in the High­lands of Scot­land saw gusts of 59mph, ac­cord­ing to the Met Of­fice.
