He stated: “Sometimes we’re to the south of that jet stream and what that enables and what it allowed final summer time is for a excessive strain to construct over the UK, and permits the UK to sort of draw up warmer air from from the south.

“Extra air was sort of fed in from the equator nearly and moved over the UK and so that top strain, coupled with the time of yr it was, allowed that day on day to rise to the UK to that document degree of 40.3C that we noticed at Coningsby in July.

“We simply haven’t been in that weather sample this summer time.

“It’s down to that jet stream and the way it the way it develops weather in the direction of the UK.

“In the meanwhile, it’s sort of directed in the direction of the UK, which helps to develop these low strain techniques and provides us a bit of a little bit autumnal-feel for the weather that we’ve seen in current weeks and yeah, not a lot for what we noticed final yr.”

“Some drizzly rain round on Thursday and cloud persevering with.

“On Friday, the higher weather is extra doubtless additional west with extra frequent showers within the east on Friday and then within the weekend, it seems to be doubtless for one more low strain system to affect issues from the west once more… however one other unsettled weekend to come.”
