September ends with warm sunshine

Fair weather clouds

27 September 2011 - As expected, many parts of the UK will have warm sunshine for the last few days of September and the start of October.

Many places can expect unbroken sunshine for the rest of this week, with temperatures well above average for the time of year.

Paul Gundersen, Met Office Deputy Chief Forecaster, said: "Warm southerly winds will bring a spell of fine, sunny autumn weather to most parts of the UK over the next few days. We'll see maximum temperatures around ten degrees above normal for late September reaching 25 to 27 °C typically and possibly even nudging 28 °C on Saturday."
