Storm Earl set to bring Arctic blasts to UK throughout this week

Britain is set to see a drop in temperatures following the recent spell of warm weather.

The southwestern and western regions are expected to see temperatures in the 20Cs today (September 13), with Scotland and northern England being much cooler.

Mid-week, the weather is expected to be affected by Hurricane Earl, which will build a dome of high pressure, allowing cool air in from the north, with temperatures in the UK expected to plunge to single figures.

By the end of the week, weather models have predicted that a cold swathe of air from Scandinavia and the Arctic region will hit Britain.

The south is set to warm up, while the north will receive the brunt of the cooler air.

BBC meteorologist Chris Fawkes said: “On Tuesday, north-westerly winds will spread across all parts of the UK so temperatures will be coming down a little bit and although there will be a lot of dry weather there could be a few showers across the north of Scotland.

“The emphasis is on a lot of dry and bright weather with some sunny spells.

“For much of the week ahead, there is a ridge of high pressure, and it will be quiet with most of us seeing some sunny spells and there is a tendency for things to turn a bit cooler.”

Meteorologists have predicted calmer weather throughout the month of September, following the effects of Hurricane Danielle.

Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said: “On Monday and Tuesday because Danielle is to the west of the UK, it will drag in some tropical air, but mostly air in from the south, and because of this we will see a brief rise in temperatures.

“Then it disappears, and high pressure starts to build, and if that high pressure stalls over the UK, it will turn cooler by the end of the week. It is a fairly autumnal set up.

“But largely, for the next week or so, it is looking calm and dry with morning fog in places.”
