The UK could see temperatures surge past 20C at the start of next month as the weather maps turn red in a welcome boost for millions of Britons heading towards winter. Maximum temperatures could reach 22C in parts of the country in the period October 1-10, according to the latest weather maps from Netweather. On the first day of next month, the mercury could jump to 20C in and around London, while dipping just a few degrees lower in several surrounding areas.
In the Midlands, temperatures could hit a high of 17C and a couple of degrees lower at 15C as far north as the North East.
The heat will ease off ever so slightly 24 hours later but there is a welcome change on October 3 as the weather maps once again start to turn orange, with highs of up to 21C possible in south east England.
A similar trend follows over the next two days, with the hotter weather more widespread throughout England that could see maximum temperatures in the southern half of the country once again reach highs of 21C.
Cooler weather appears on October 6, with the mercury dipping to highs of 17C on the south coast and possibly single figures in Scotland.
Maximum temperatures will again hit double figures throughout the UK the following day, with the mercury peaking at 16C just south of London and will edge up slightly to 17C on October 8.
The second weekend in October will end with highs of 19C in London and on the south coast, and just a couple of degrees lower in several other surrounding areas.
AccuWeather Meteorologist Mary Gilbert said the pattern in the jet stream during the first full week next month “looks to be very wavy in nature, which could spell some temperature variations”.
Early in that week, a “northward bulge” in that jet stream could see a “brief warmup relative to normal”, with the slightly hotter air travelling up from the eastern Atlantic.
Temperature are likely to be at their highest across southern England, and could hit highs of up to 20C.
She told Express.co.uk: “The pattern in the jet stream for that first full week in October looks to be very wavy in nature, which could spell some temperature variations throughout the week.
“Early in the week, a northward bulge in the jet stream could usher in a brief warmup relative to normal. This slightly warmer air would be coming up from the eastern Atlantic.
“High temperatures in London, for example, are likely to be at least in the 17-18C range late this upcoming weekend/early next week.

“London typically records highs in the 15-16C range at that point in October.
“Elsewhere across southern England, highs in the 19-20 C range are not out of the question, at least early in the week. Not sure there will be widespread 21-22 C (low 70s F), though.
“Much of the week looks to be largely dry across the UK. Near the end of a week there are some indications that a storm could push across the UK from the west, could possibly bring showers and a bit of wind.”
