UK weather forecast: ‘Mini heatwave’ could see temperatures soar to 28C next week

The UK could see a “mini heatwave” next week amid the fallout from tropical storm Ida.

September will get off to a warm start, with temperatures up to 28C predicted for early next week.

But forecasters have warned the balmy weather could also bring thunderstorms as the remnants of Hurricane Ida draw up a lot of warmth and rain, before conditions turn more autumnal for the rest of the month.

UK weather: Snow to fall across country amid Arctic blast

London could see snow as early as next week as temperatures in the UK plunge below zero, the Met Office has warned.

The prospect of early snow already has the bookmakers excited about the possibility of Britain enjoying its first meaningful White Christmas since 2010, the coldest December in a century.

The likes of William Hill and Ladbrokes are already taking bets on whether the country will see snowfall on Christmas morning and which parts of the country might be most likely to see it, the current favourite being Leeds-Bradford Airport.

Is the UK in for a white Christmas?

The weather has turned colder and it’s thought that parts of the UK could even be in for a white Christmas this year.

According to the Met Office, some northern parts of the UK could see snow on Christmas Day, while other parts of the country will likely be cold and bright.

Unsettled weather in the lead-up to Christmas should give way to colder, clearer conditions on 25 December said the forecasters.

Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said: "We could see some snow showers over the hills in northern parts of the UK – it’s probably the most likely place to see any snow. You couldn’t rule out some sleety snow further south than that, but there’s a really big question mark on it.”

According to Ms Shuttleworth, the areas most likely to experience snow on Christmas Day are the Midlands, northern England and Scotland.

A white Christmas, as defined by the Met Office, is for “one snowflake to be observed falling in the 24 hours of 25 December somewhere in the UK.”

Storm Eunice: ‘Stay indoors’ alert as 100mph gusts set to cause chaos
Power cuts, damage to homes, floods and travel woes predicted as high winds set to hit England and Wales

The Met Office has issued a "stay indoors" warning for England and Wales, with Storm Eunice set to bring in 100mph gusts on Friday.

The storm is predicted to damage to homes, coastal flooding and travel chaos.

Thousands of people across the north of England were left without power after rain and winds from Storm Dudley hit parts of Durham, Cumbria, North Yorkshire and Lancashire. Northern Powergrid was forced to put people in a queue for its website due to the high demand.

It said the storm had caused "above typical" levels of damage to the network and could not provide an exact time when power would be restored.
