Met Office predicts sun and 26C in Lincs next week as county gets last blast of summer

Meteorological autumn has begun and Lincolnshire is set for some sunny spells. The summer has been slightly disappointing in terms of warmer weather but, according to the Met Office, we are set for a burst of sunshine next week.

High pressure is set to build across the UK this weekend which will result in some dry and settled conditions. Temperatures across Lincolnshire will reach the low twenties in most areas on Saturday and Sunday, with coastal areas staying slightly cooler.

Heading into next week, these temperatures will rise into the mid-twenties across much of the county. Lincoln and Grantham will reach highs of 26C while Boston hits 25C. Skegness will be slightly lower in temperature, but still warm, at 22C.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Steven Keates, said: “High pressure will build across much of the UK this weekend, bringing fine, dry and settled conditions for many. It will feel rather humid in the south with temperatures reaching 23C or 24C on Saturday, while further north it will reach the high teens or low twenties Celsius.

“Many areas will see fine and warm weather on Sunday as well, with temperatures widely in the low to mid 20s Celsius.”

A post on X (formerly Twitter) from the Met Office on Thursday, August 31 reads: “We move into meteorological Autumn tomorrow, but for most of us it will feel much more like summer by early next week!”

According to The Mirror, weather maps show that between September 2 and September 6, the UK could enjoy a mini heatwave lasting at least five days and some areas will enjoy temperatures higher than tourist hotspot Barcelona.
