Britain baked in the hottest September day in 105 years this week as a blistering 34C blasted sunseekers across the county.
But some parts of the UK saw summer come to a dramatic end with flooding and lightning strikes. And now weather boffins predict the worst could be yet to come.
Forecasters believe autumn could send the UK into an increasingly stormy weather pattern, with multiple tropical storms expected before the end of November.
Northern Ireland and Scotland are also expected to be hit hardest with strong winds and heavy rainfall.
These torrid conditions could lead to power cuts in Liverpool Manchester and Glasgow – due to destroyed power lines – and widespread transport delays – due to flooded roads.
