The Met Office says the weather is set to become ‘widely unsettled’ later this month.
September 2021 was the second warmest on record for the UK.
The mean temperature of 14.7C for the UK was only slightly cooler than the 15C figure that was recorded in August, according to provisional Met Office figures.
The UK’s warmest September was in 2006 when the temperature reached 15.2C, the Met Office said.
The Met Office said that September 2021, which came on the back of a more subdued August, saw the UK as a whole enjoy its second warmest September based on figures dating back to 1884.
The mean temperature in September was 13C in Scotland, 14.8C in Wales and 15.8C in England.
But the weather is about to get a lot cooler, while the northwest will likely be hit by the worst of the rain and the wind.
In their long-range forecast for Saturday, October 23 to Saturday, November 6, the Met Office said: “Turning more widely unsettled across the UK, although the wettest and windiest conditions are likely to remain in the north and the northwest, with more settled conditions to southern and eastern areas at times.
“Moving into early November, more widespread dry spells are possible across the country, with the risk of overnight fog which will clear by day.
“Through this period temperatures will remain near or above average.
“However, there is a chance of colder conditions becoming established in early November.”
