Temperatures to plummet next week as Brits battered with ‘blustery winds’

Brits have been warned by the latest Met Office forecast that miserable torrential downpours and strong winds are looming.

As people enjoy a three-day' mini-heatwave' over the next couple of days with highs of 23C, an Atlantic weather front is preparing to bring a turn for the worst.

Areas in the north are expected to see "blustery weather" in the north for the rest of the week, with a divide between the south where sunny spells and dry conditions remain thanks to a push from the Azores.

However, a "shift" in the position of the jet stream early next week will also begin a change in the British weather, with wet and windy conditions and a sudden drop in temperatures.

This will mark the 'end of the summer' with it feeling more 'autumnal' alongside colder mercury and regular showers.

Expert Met Office Meteorologist, Adam Thornhill, said; “For the rest of this week and for the weekend, we will continue to see low pressure systems bringing blustery weather to the north of the UK whereas further south the drier, warmer weather remains thanks to the influence of high pressure extending up from the Azores”.

Monday appears to be a cold and wet day for many across the UK.

“However, a shift in the position of the jet stream brings a change in our weather next week, allowing a cold front associated with a low-pressure system in the North Atlantic to spread eastwards bringing wet and windy conditions across the whole country throughout Monday." Mr Thornhill added.

"Behind the cold front, conditions will feel much more autumnal with a cooler feel and blustery showers for many."

Although the UK will see temperatures plummet, potentially below normal for the time of year, mercury is set to slowly recover by October.

The sharp contrast with "gusty winds" will shock Brits as most experienced a below-average wind speed over recent weeks.

The Met Office adds some regions saw the lowest average wind speeds for 20 years, and the windy conditions arriving in a matter of days could make it feel a lot colder.

Despite the summer appears to be a 'washout' for most Brits due to interchangeable weather, the weather agency states rainfall for August and September so far has been below normal for August and September.
