Prepare Yourselves for the Hottest Autumn In one of our previous blog posts that we wrote a couple of weeks ago, we mentioned how much of a disappointing summer we’ve had and how it was now officially over. However, reports and predictions reveal that we now face one of the hottest autumns for 25 years. The best weather has been predicted to grace us at the end of this week and around the beginning of October. However, the UK Met Office Chief Forecaster, Chris Tubbs, said “It’s too early to give precise detail, but the dominant signal is for much of the UK to get some fine weather from Tuesday onwards. Temperatures could be unseasonably warm in places, certainly well above the average for this time of year.” He carries on to say that “The settled weather is set to last for several days and could carry on into the start of October, giving us a welcome respite from the windy and wet conditions which have dominated for the past few weeks”. According to predictions by the UK Met Office, the south and east of England will see the best of the weather, where temperatures could reach 27C, hotter than Hawaii! I’m sure that most people will be planning some daytrips or weekends away to the seaside or park, but it’s definitely not time to put the barbeque or air conditioning in south east London away just yet. If you are planning on enjoying the sunshine, remember to protect yourself from the strong UV rays by avoiding the midday heat and covering up your skin with a high factor sun cream.
