Londoners will bask in three more days of sunshine in a final mini heatwave for the UK.

After a disappointing summer, the next three days are set to be dry and full of sunshine - with temperatures hitting highs of 23C.

On Thursday, London will see top temperatures of 22C - rising to 23C on Friday and Saturday.

Sadly, rain is predicted on Sunday, with highs of 22C.

The summery conditions will be felt for most of the south east and Wales, the Met Office said, but rain and strong winds head for north west England, Northern Ireland and central Scotland this weekend.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin told The Sun: “Plenty more sunshine across much of the country today.

“Much of southern Scotland and certainly most of England and Wales will have another fine day of September sunshine.

“Temperatures are responding to that sunshine, heading up into the low twenties - 22C, maybe 23C across parts of the south east.”

Last week, a flood warning was put in place for England as torrential rain was forecast on Sunday.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather ahead of when the wet weather was due to hit.

The Environment Agency increased its flood risk level from “very low” to “low”.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “The heavier rain is expected to move eastwards across the day, becoming slow moving across the east later on in the day.

“There is a chance of thunderstorms also and 30-40mm totals over a few hours is possible.

“There is a yellow warning for rain in force from midday to midnight on Sunday, running up the east coast of England. There is a small chance of localised flooding from those heavy showers.”

Meanwhile, August was a month of “extreme” weather in the UK, which included two named storms, a heatwave and the hottest August day recorded in 17 years.

Meteorological summer ends on August 31, with autumn beginning in September, according to the meteorological calendar.
