UK weather – Hurricane Larry fallout could bring ANOTHER ‘mini-heatwave’ to Britain next week, Met Office says

BRITS could see another “mini-heatwave” next week as the fallout from Hurricane Larry spills across the Atlantic.

The tropical storm won’t hit the UK – but its remnants could bring a period of fine and dry weather across the country.

Although the Met Office has warned it’s unlikely Brits will see the same scorching 30C heat as last week, the aftermath of Hurricane Larry could bring a few days of balmy temperatures.

The hurricane made landfall in Newfoundland on Saturday, but the energy and heat of the storm will have an effect on the jet stream over the UK.

As the beginning of autumn rolls in, Hurricane Larry has sparked hopes of a last blast of heat for the UK.

Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said: “At the moment it does look like high pressure will be the more dominant feature.

“It won’t be as crazily warm as it was through the first half of this week and it will be cold at night, but it could mean fine and dry weather.

“The battle between high and low pressure will continue into the start of next week.

“On the face of it, it does look like the high is going to win out, but low pressure to the south can’t be ruled out.

“It depends on the exact position of the jet stream, and how things interact with Hurricane Larry.”

Forecasters have already said a nine-day heatwave could arrive next week.

The country is set to enjoy highs of more than 20C as the mercury shoots up from September 14 to September 22.

The Met Office said the north and northwest of the country will experience the most balmy weather.

The long-range forecast said: “Settled and largely dry conditions are then expected to continue through the start of next week with variable cloud and some decent clear and sunny spells, although perhaps cloudier in the far north and northwest with rain at times.”

Torrential downpours have hit much of the UK in recent days – but Brits are set to enjoy brighter skies and highs of 24C over the weekend.

Oli Claydon, Met Office spokesman, told The Sun Online: “On Saturday, it’s a bit of a better picture of most of the UK than Friday.

“The rain will mostly be confined to northern parts of Scotland, and it will be a brighter and drier day in many places.

“There will still be the odd shower around, but the sunshine will spread more widely through the day.”

He added: “Sunday will broadly be a fairly fine and bright day. But there will be lots of rain moving in from the south west, which could impact Devon, Cornwall and Wales.

“Aside from the odd shower in central parts, it will be a fairly fine and bright day.”

Claydon said the north of Scotland will be battered by the worst of the rain over the weekend, but the pulse of heavy rain will move northeast across the UK on Monday.

It comes after Brits suffered one of the most miserable summers in memory.

London saw downpours that flooded Tube stations and forced people from their homes.

Despite that, Met Office officials say it was actually in the top 10 warmest on record.
