IT'S the last week of summer weather article - and these are the temperatures Flintshire and Wrexham residents can expect this week.

On Monday, according to the Met Office, in Wrexham and Flintshire people enjoyed temperatures of up to 25C.

On Tuesday, it will be warm again, with temperatures expected to reach 22C by about 1pm.

For the rest of the week, from Wednesday through Sunday, it will be cooler although still sunny with temperatures up to 19C in the middle of the day.

Meanwhile, parts of the UK were hotter than Marbella and Tenerife on Monday and sweltering temperatures are set to soar even higher on Tuesday.

The mercury was pushing 30C (86F) across London and the south-east, with Charlwood in Surrey recording a high of 29.5C (85.1F) by mid-afternoon, making it warmer than some of Europe’s top tourist destinations.

Temperatures are expected to rise above 30C (86F) on Tuesday, far exceeding the September 20C (68F) average in London and the south east and 18C (64.4F) for the rest of the England and Wales.

It means parts of the south could pass the threshold for a heatwave, which requires three consecutive days of temperatures above 28C (82.4F), according to the Met Office.

This would be unusual as statistically 97% of UK heatwaves occur in the summer months of June, July and August.

Forecaster Luke Miall told the PA news agency: “Temperatures are quite high for this time of year.

“This is because of southerly winds pushing up from the continent along with a band of high pressure.

“And Tuesday will potentially be hotter, with parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland also witnessing clear skies and temperatures into the low-twenties.

“Most of Wales, northern England and the Midlands will also be in the high twenties.”

However the temperatures will still fall short of the highest September temperature ever recorded, which was 35.6C (96.08F) on September 2, 1906.
