A September heatwave may be on the way and could even be hotter than August, according to a recent Met Office forecast.

The exact date for the scorching heat plume lands the blast of late-summer weather at the end of the month.

It comes as Brits are enjoying a mini-heatwave over the past few days, with highs of 30C expected for the areas seeing the best of the weather.

The long-range forecast from the Met Office shows the last of the summer sunshine may not be over just yet, with about of sweltering weather set to arrive in just a matter of weeks.

However, before we can expect rays shining down, the UK is due to be bashed with heavy thunderstorms over the next week.

The Met Office issued two weather warnings for Wednesday and today, (Thursday), where most of northern England, Wales, and Northern Ireland are to be battered with downpours, hail, and lightning.

Despite the washout end of the week, hopes for an Indian Summer are still on the horizon.

And in approximately two weeks' time, temperatures are predicted to surge.

A Met Office spokesperson told the Mirror: "After a very warm few days, the outlook changes and we will see more mild conditions as things again become a little unsettled.

"We expect that theme to continue, but towards the end of the month there is a signal that the warmer weather will return."

Light showers are forecast everywhere by September 12, but even the downpours won't stop the warm weather for good.

September is also set to be calmer and more settled compared to July and August.

Further, the summer has been revealed as one of the most miserable for the past 10 years, with the total hours of sunshine across the UK at their lowest since 2012, data says.

Met Office forecaster Steven Keates said: “This summer has certainly been unremarkable and pretty bland. It’s not going to be remembered for warmth.

“We’ve had flooding, some parts of the country have seen double their average rainfall, and temperatures have been average.”
