27C temperatures forecast for Wales as sunshine returns

Temperatures are set to soar to 27C in parts of Wales next week as sunshine finally returns following weeks of grey and cold weather.

As the summer holiday draws to a close, Wales should expect one last glimpse of sun before autumn arrives as temperatures reach the high 20s next week.

The BBC are forecasting that temperatures in the south east of Wales such as Cardiff and Monmouthshire could reach highs of 27C on Tuesday.

Further west the broadcaster are still predicting hot weather – albeit slightly cooler – reaching 25C in Swansea on Tuesday and 24C in Tenby.

The warm weather looks set to last for the majority of next week before becoming more unsettled but largely dry next weekend.

The Met Office are also predicting warm weather in Wales next week.

The Met Office forecast for Wales on Tuesday September 7 to Thursday September 16 said: “Conditions are expected to become less settled through this period, though confidence is low at this time. Showers or longer spells of rain are likely, the focus of these perhaps across western areas, while some parts of the east may well hang on to largely dry conditions for much of this period.

“It will also be windy at times, this particularly so around some southern and western coasts and over the hills. There is the potential for some of the rain to be heavy at times, with the risk of some thunderstorms mixed in. Temperatures are likely to trend warmer than average across all parts, perhaps becoming very warm at times across sunnier parts of the east.”

From Friday September 17 the weather will once again return to what you would more typically expect in September as Autumn rolls in.

The forecaster says: “Confidence is relatively low during this period, as is usual for September, in part due to tropical storm activity across the Atlantic, which can significantly affect weather at the mid-latitudes. Currently, the evidence points towards the unsettled theme being likely to continue through the middle of the month, with a weak indication of possible drier conditions late in September.

“Therefore, rainfall is expected to be above average at first, with the chance of it easing and trending towards or drier than average later. Following this pattern, temperatures are expected to fluctuate around average in the middle of the month, with some occasional warm spells – these more likely in the southeast, and perhaps more widely towards the end of the month.”
