The retail weather forecast from Saturday September 1 through to Friday September 7, 2018: warm again for most

The week last year

Rain fell most days of the week. Temperatures started out warm but slipped to normal or below by mid-week.

The week this year

Great Britain recently experienced its first strong cooling trend as summer begins to wane. Unfortunately for transitional sales, the trend will not continue, with temperatures rising to above last year and normal again.

There will be periods of showers across the North, while remaining areas are largely sunny and dry.



Weather key


After a recent boost for back-to-school and transitional/early autumn sales, comparables will be less favourable for new-season stock as summer temperatures return to the country.
