Has summer finished already? The distinctly autumnal mood to the weather has come from the jet stream driving south of the UK, leaving us exposed to an endless train of depressions rolling in off the Atlantic. BUT .....There is ray of hope later this week, with the return of drier weather as a ridge of high pressure moves in.
Some media, though, have already pounced on the idea that this could soon become the wettest August on record. True, rainfall in England and Wales has been above average, but it is a long way off breaking the August record. That rainfall record was set in August 1912, the wettest August for England Wales, and for good measure it was the coolest and dullest August too.
The climax came towards the end of that month when a catastrophic deluge swamped East Anglia, with more than 7in of rain falling in a day on Norwich. Big trees crashed down, rivers burst their banks, and streets turned into rivers, trapping thousands of people in their homes — some 15,000 people suffered damaged property, 2,000 were left homeless and four people died. “It was pitiable to see these poor people struggling with their adversity, and to think of the cheerless night they must spend amid their sodden surroundings,” described the Eastern Daily Press.
Norfolk was cut off from the rest of the country as 52 bridges collapsed and roads and railways vanished under floodwaters. Crops were waterlogged and the “new-fangled” tractor proved useless. And a large area of East Anglia stayed underwater through the winter as well.

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Sunday 25 Aug - Tuesday 3 Sep
Sunday is expected to be dry, bright and warm across most of the UK. Temperatures will be well above average across the southeast, but remain closer to normal in the northwest. The odd shower is possible but most people won't see one. On Monday (the Bank Holiday except in Scotland), warm dry weather is expected again in the south and east, but it may be wetter and windier in the far northwest. In the following days, dry warm weather may well continue in the south and east, though there is a risk of some thundery showers moving up from the near continent. Northern parts of the UK may see further spells of wet and windy weather, though some drier warmer spells are likely here too.
Wednesday 4 Sep - Wednesday 18 Sep
Confidence remains rather low during this period. Southern areas are most likely to see the driest and sunniest weather in the early days of September, perhaps with some lingering wet and windy conditions affecting the north. However, longer spells of dry and sunny weather may occasionally develop across all parts. Temperatures are generally likely to be warmer than average, although there is little indication of anything exceptional at this time.--
