Come what may, Summer 2022 is going to go down in the history books for many regions for the record-breaking temperatures and, in places, record-breaking drought experienced, but for much of Britain and Ireland meteorological summer looks set to end on a rather nondescript note.
Yes, a rather more changeable look to the weather over the coming week or so as the jet stream awakens for a bit and brings Atlantic low pressure systems our way. This means bands of rain or showers will be making their way eastwards across the country from time to time. Despite this rather more changeable outlook, rainfall totals in many areas, particularly towards the south and east, don't look particularly large and so the drought worries won't be going away any time soon.
Indeed, for that south-eastern corner of England another rather warm week is in store with temperatures on most days making the mid-high twenties but it will be cooler the further north and west that you are. Add in the rapidly shortening daylight hours that are becoming increasingly evident and certainly things will be starting to feel rather different compared to earlier in the summer.
