An Indian summer heatwave is set to blast the UK in the coming days, with highs of up to 25C.
Early October will see warm temperatures ranging from early to mid 20Cs, with heat maps for the period turning a scorching red.
However, Jim Dale, a meteorologist for the Met Office, said that the heatwave could last for days, stretching even until mid-October.
“I think we can fairly call this an Indian Summer incoming - it will be peaking this time next week, but it will still be pretty good to the halfway stage of October. About 25C tops next Sunday is my call,” he told the Express.

An Indian summer is a late burst of warm weather that occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.
The heat will come as a surprise to most, as meteorological autumn began on September 23, which is associated with cooler weather.
However, weather maps show that the seasons are lagging behind this year.
The heat is expected to begin on Friday (October 6) and is set to last throughout the weekend.
