Sun-starved Brits are set for some Indian summer heat – with a warm autumn more than twice as likely this year.
Millions swamped beaches and parks yesterday to lap up the 24C Bank Holiday weekend sunshine after a drab summer.
And the good news is a hotter 27C blast is due in September.
And on top of this, 22C is even forecast in October.
The Met Office said the three months from September to November have twice the usual chance of being warmer than average.
Their three-month outlook said: “There is more than double the chance of a warm autumn compared to normal, with September more likely to be warm than cool.
“Autumn is also more likely to be dry then wet.”
The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “The end of summer will not mean the end of warm temperatures.
“Indian Summer-style conditions are expected at times this autumn.
“Warmth will come to the UK, most likely from Europe.
“27C could be seen in mid-September, with 22C in October, although there will also be wet spells at times this autumn.”
It came as 75,000 daily visitors headed to Brighton and 50,000 to Bournemouth for the end of August scorcher.
But traffic snarl-ups were due on popular coastal routes including the A23 to Brighton, A31 to Dorset, A30 to Cornwall, and M55 to Blackpool.
Daytrippers’ £1billion spending boost will cheer crisis-hit hotels and pubs after lockdowns and the wet start to school holidays.
Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “It’s glorious this Bank Holiday weekend for the majority – and looking dry and settled until next weekend.”
Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weather trending said: “A dry Bank Holiday weekend doesn’t happen that often, so savour it.
“And the mid-20s could be seen next week in parts of the North.”
