Gloucestershire is going to bake in sweltering 27C highs next week as a mini heatwave arrives.
Forecasters are divided on just how hot it will be on Monday (September 14), with the Met Office saying 24C, while weather.com expects 27C.
Either way it’s going to be warm enough to enjoy an early autumn BBQ or to make that final camping trip for the year.
The coming days will be cloudy across Gloucestershire, with highs of around 18C.
But by Sunday, the mercury is expected to soar to the low 20s before a scorcher on Monday.
A 600-mile “subtropical swell” sweeping in across the Atlantic is behind next week’s mini-heatwave.
Nick Finnis at Netweather said: “Much of England and Wales will have a dry weekend and becoming increasingly warm.
“Temperatures could reach the mid-20s Celsius across eastern England.
“Always cloudier across northern England and north Wales, perhaps with some patchy drizzle or light rain possible later on Saturday.”
The Met Office added temperatures will be “above average” by the weekend.
A spokesperson website: “A spell of settled weather is likely to develop for a time from the south into early next week bringing increasingly warm and dry conditions.
“Uncertainty remains as to how long this settled period will last, but a return to changeable conditions seems probable during the second half of the week.
“Any areas that observe clearer skies and lighter winds during overnight periods may see some mist or fog develop.
“Temperatures should be around average for the time of year in the north and potentially slightly above average in the south.”
