BBC Weather’s Matt Taylor forecast highs of 22C on Thursday as Brits are set to bake in mid-September sunshine. However, rain is expected to come along for some areas during the weekend. He said: “We have got a weather front approaching from the west, this zone of cloud were is going to creep its way to Northern Ireland and western Scotland later.

“While an old weather front across northern England is just producing the passing shower at the moment.

“It’s fairly brief for the most part and they will depart. The rest of the day will be dry.

“Good long sunny spells across eastern Scotland, west of Scotland sunshine turns hazy.

“Temperatures above where we should be for this time of the year, reaching the low 20s particularly in England.

“But breezier towards the end tied to the weather front that will be with us as we go through tonight bringing some splashes of rain in Scotland and Northern Ireland.”

He added on Friday, Northern Ireland is expected to see some heavy bursts of rain in the morning.

It comes as the Met Office issued a yellow warning for rain in central and eastern areas of England until midnight on Tuesday.

Parts of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland will also experience wet weather throughout the day, but no warnings have been issued for these nations.

Met Office: Mild weather forecasted for Thursday across UK

Much of the UK basked in sweltering sunshine at the start of the month, including Wales which experienced its warmest September night on record, while temperatures in Scotland reached the highest since 1906.

But grey skies and temperatures in the late teens hailed the end of summery weather towards the middle of the month.

Cars were captured ploughing through floodwater on Tower Bridge in central London beneath a blanket of clouds on Tuesday morning.

The capital is predicted to be one of the worst-hit areas in terms of rainfall in the morning, with up to 25mm of water predicted to lash London.

Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said that as the rain moves north-eastwards throughout Tuesday, areas of the Midlands and northeast could see 40mm of rain.

She added that the rain is set to ease in the south on Tuesday afternoon, with a “low risk” of thunderstorms to follow.

Ms Shuttleworth said: “We have seen the main body of rain move further north throughout the morning, and the rain will persist for the longest in north-eastern parts of England.”

She added that Wednesday will bring drier weather across the UK, which is set to stay fairly settled with patchy sunshine predicted throughout the coming days.
