Temperatures in the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland are expected to sit between 15C (59F) and 19C (66.2F), meteorologist Charlie Powell said.

In contrast, the South of England will largely see a sunny, dry Saturday and a cloudy, showery Sunday, with temperatures of up to 25C (77F).

The remnants of Hurricane Gert could bring more “tropical and humid” conditions to southern and eastern parts as Sunday ends, Mr Powell added.

The former category two hurricane is going to be “wrapped up in existing pressure” and weakened as it moves across the Atlantic Ocean, likely bringing humidity and balminess to the South.

If it hits 26C (78.8F) or 27C (80.6F) on Monday, that will make it the warmest day of August.

Though potentially salvaging summer for the South, it could end up bringing wind and wet to the North.

Last night, the US National Hurricane Centre said Gert would bring dangerous swells to its east coast before turning into a post-tropical cyclone by Friday.

It will then move towards the UK before finally reaching land across the north on Sunday.
