Speaking about the current weather situation, Mr Dale told Express.co.uk: “We are looking at very few changes. It’s drought.
“Looking into the next few weeks, we can pretty much expect what we’ve had for the past week.
“Basically the high pressure sitting on top, all that moves below or goes over the top towards Norway is the frontal systems.
“So we’re going to stay in there. Things cannot pass, which is why we are where we are now.

Mr Dale continued: “Temperatures, certainly, are heading to 20C and above over the next few days, so the bank holiday weekend will be a bit warmer.
“And especially since you get by the next week, so 23C, 24C in the London area and I think in general most people will see between 18 and 22C in the next seven to 10 days.

The Met Office forecast for September 1-10 echoes Mr. Dale’s comments that the high pressure will remain over the country during this time.
The Met Office said, “The high pressure should hang in early, leading to a continuation of mostly fair and dry weather.
“The center of the high pressure should remain in the north-west of the UK.
“For starters, this period will probably see the best sunshine in the west or northwest with more cloud in the east and the possibility of a very isolated light downpour along the North Sea coast. “
