Exact date ‘unusually warm’ heat and sunshine will return to Lincolnshire this month

Forecasters predict that some ‘unusually’ sunny spells are on their way to Lincolnshire this month. The Met Office says that a split in conditions is likely to develop across the UK from Friday, October 6, leading to warmer and drier weather in southern areas.

Lincoln, Boston and Grantham are to be hit with 22C heat and sunshine this weekend, with Skegness also seeing highs of 21C. While it may be a sunnier start than usual to October, these warmer temperatures are likely to trend downward toward middle of the month.

The Met Office’s long-range weather forecast for the UK states: “A split in conditions is likely to develop across the UK early in the period [October 6 to 15]. Further rain is expected in north-western areas, which could turn heavy, particularly over higher, westwards-facing ground and strong winds are also possible in these areas.

“Southern areas, in contrast, are likely to remain much drier with light winds and some clear spells, which could lead to some overnight patches of mist and fog. Temperatures are likely to be above average for many, especially so in the south where some unusually warm temperatures for October are possible.

“These temperatures are likely to trend downward toward middle of the month, with the northwest-southeast split also slowly becoming less distinct as the weather becomes generally more changeable.”
