Britain is set to bask in 75F sunshine tomorrow – hotter than even parts of the Mediterranean and European hotspots Portugal, Spain and France  – in a last blast of summer this September before downpours and gales lash the country at the weekend. 

The Met Office said there will be sunny spells today before mercury rises tomorrow beyond even the 71F expected in Faro in Portugal’s southern Algarve region, the 66F due in Madrid, Spain’s central capital, and 73F in Nice, France’s Mediterranean getaway. 

Britons should then brace for autumnal showers on Saturday and Sunday as temperatures ebb to 64F by the end of next week as our brief summer comes to an end.  

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said that the UK has been ‘much warmer than average for the first half of September’ and ‘that theme continues for the first day of this forecast, Thursday’. Bookmaker Coral makes this month odds on at 1-2 to be the hottest September since records began. 

This week commuters in London battled flash flooding on their way to work as parts of the North Circular and the Blackwall Tunnel Northern Approach and Underground services including the District Line were left submerged. 

Dramatic footage showed buses and cars struggling to get across the landmark bridge, while photos shared by angry Londoners with MailOnline also showed the A41 by Brent Cross shopping centre and Euston Road left in deep rainwater.

‘There’ll be fog patches first thing and poor visibility on the roads, but once the fog clears, most places will have a fine day, with warm sunny spells,’ Mr McGivern said. 

‘It’ll be 23 or 24C in the south and in the high teens for the north. And there’s plenty more fine weather to come in many places on Friday, with eastern Scotland, much of England and Wales seeing warm sunshine.’   

Much of the UK basked in sweltering sunshine at the start of the month, including Wales which experienced its warmest September night on record, while temperatures in Scotland reached the highest since 1906. 

But grey skies and temperatures in the late teens hailed the end of summery weather towards the middle of the month. Cars were captured ploughing through floodwater in central London beneath a blanket of clouds on Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, temperatures in Cardiff and Belfast are predicted to remain constant at around 64.4F throughout the working week. 

The Met Office said that the long-range forecast for September is uncertain, but forecasters expect temperatures across the UK to be slightly higher than average for the time of year.  

The Met Office issued the yellow weather warning, affecting bus and train services with journey times taking longer and the chance of cancellations.

Drivers were also warned that spray and flooding on roads would make journey times longer with some difficult driving conditions and the chance of road closures.
