Brits could see another “mini-heatwave” next week as the fallout from Hurricane Larry spreads across the Atlantic.
The tropical storm will not hit the UK – but its remnants could bring fine and dry weather across the country.
Although the Met Office has warned that it is unlikely Britons will see the same scorching 30C heat as last week, temperatures could rise for a few days after Hurricane Larry.
The storm made landfall in Newfoundland, Canada on Saturday, but the energy and heat of the storm will affect the jet stream over Britain.
As autumn approaches, Hurricane Larry has raised hopes of the last blast of summer for Britain.
Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said: “At the moment it looks like high pressure will be a more prominent feature.
“It will not be as hot as the first half of this week and will be cooler at night, but it could mean fine and dry weather.
“The battle between high and low pressure will continue into early next week.
“On the face of it, it looks like the high is going to win, but the low pressure in the south cannot be ruled out.
“It depends on the exact position of the jet stream, and how things interact with Hurricane Larry.”
Forecasters have already said heat wave conditions are likely to continue for nine days next week.
The country is set to enjoy highs of over 20C from September 14 to September 22 as the mercury soars.
The Meteorological Department said that the most humid weather will be in the north and northwest of the country.
The long-range forecast said: “Settled and largely dry conditions are expected to continue early next week with variable cloud cover and some good clear and sunny spells, although perhaps with occasional rain in the far north.” And it will be cloudy in the northwest.”
Torrential rains have lashed much of the UK in recent days – but Britons are set to enjoy brighter skies and higher 24C levels over the weekend.
Met Office spokesman Ollie Clayden told Online: “On Saturday, it is a better picture of much of the UK than on Friday.
“The rain will be mostly confined to the northern parts of Scotland, and it will be a bright and dry day in many places.
“There will still be strange showers all around, but the glow will spread more widely during the day.”
He said: “Sunday will be a fairly nice and bright day in general. But there will be a lot of rain coming from the south west, which could affect Devon, Cornwall and Wales.
“Apart from rain in the central parts, it will be quite a nice and bright day.”
Clayden said the north of Scotland would see its worst rain over the weekend, but the pulse of heavy rain would move north-east across Britain on Monday.
It comes as the Brits suffered the most miserable summers in memory.
London saw torrential rains that flooded tube stations and forced people to leave their homes.
Despite this, Met Office officials say it was actually in the top 10 hottest places on record.
