Britain will bask in another scorching heatwave at the end of the month when a tropical typhoon sweeps across the country.
The Asian super-storm is rapidly moving towards Europe and forecasters say it will bring an abrupt end to our recent downpours and flooding.
“If hot weather’s your thing, don’t give up,” ex-BBC forecaster John Hammond said.
“The weather will begin to settle down as high pressure builds from the south, opening the door to drier and warmer [days].”
And Liam Dutton, a Channel 4 News weatherman, posted a short video which shows how parts of Asia are currently being hit by the tropical storm.
His clip reads: “How a typhoon over Asia may bring summer weather back to the UK.
“Tropical storm Krosa is spinning around over the NW Pacific Ocean.
“It was previously a typhoon but has now weakened to a strong tropical storm.
“During the next few days, it’ll move over Japan and onwards to the far east of Russia.
“However, it’ll also bump into the jet stream high up in the atmosphere.
“This will send a ripple eastwards along the jet stream, like what happens when you flick a skipping rope.”
The Met Office understands temperatures will rise in the next two weeks. Cambridge saw highs of 38C during the last scorching heatwave.
Mr Dutton added: “If you look closely, you can see this ripple in the jet stream travel across the ocean to the US.
“The ripple then travels onwards to above the Atlantic Ocean, pushing the jet stream north of the UK.
“If the jet stream moves north of the UK, it will bring high pressure instead of low pressure.
“High pressure would bring settled weather for the end of August with some sunshine and a warmer feel than of late.”
While heavy rain will blight the rest of the week, the weather will quickly change.
“Things will start to improve next week,” Marco Peteagna, a forecaster at the Met Office said.
He told The Sun Online: “The jet stream from the Atlantic will push north on Monday which will bring warmer weather and sunshine.”
