Yorkshire folk might have to swap hot chocolates for milkshakes and sweets for ice creams this Halloween as it has been revealed that we may be set to experience a warmer run up to Halloween because of an ‘African plume’.
Yorkshire dads will be happy as they won’t have to guard the thermostat for a little bit longer as big coats and jumpers will be left in the cupboard in the coming weeks in the UK thanks to a rise in warmer weather.
Today is said to be forecasted as the beginning of the warm run up to Halloween, which will last up to six days in most places.
Halloween 2022 could be your chance to enjoy the last of those warm summer rays before 5 months of darkness, cold and wet weather. Nature has a trick and a treat up its sleeve for us with the African plume of hot air that is predicted to be heading towards the UK in the next few weeks.
We could be looking at temperatures in the low twenties by as early as this week, which won’t quite be shorts and t-shirt weather, but we’ll take it after temperatures dropped in recent weeks.
The milder conditions will last up until Halloween, which is October 31st, according to Meteorologists.
Net Weather reports the reason why saying: “The potential for warm weather next week is thanks to an increasingly amplifying upper flow pattern upstream over North Atlantic, leading to an upper trough to disrupt to form a cut-off upper low to the west of Europe.
“This upper low to the west combined a strong upper ridge building north over Europe looks to pump a plume of very warm air north from Northwest Africa across western Europe next week, reaching southern Britain by Wednesday.
“[…] So, there is potential next week, particularly Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, for temperatures to reach the low twenties Celsius across southern Britain with sunshine, most likely across SE England and East Anglia.”
Fingers crossed we are in for a cheeky bit of warm weather, if don’t we’ve got a list of the best hot chocolates across Yorkshire for you to try to get those calories needed to stay warm.
