A WARM spell of weather is on its way following a 4C polar plunge. 

Temperatures could rise to slightly above average next week to as high as 24C, the Met Office said. 

And the long range forecast for September 30 to October 14 suggests there will be high pressure, dry and above average temperatures. 

It will follow arctic temperatures as low as 4C overnight, potentially set to cause frost. 

The Met Office defines an Indian Summer as a calm spell of weather occurring in autumn, and it often follows a period of frostiness. 

Its current long-range forecast for the start of next month says: "We are likely to continue seeing a northwest/southeast split through the end of September and into October.

Mornings will be particularly chilly with potentially some frost around over the weekend.

And anyone planning on staying out late tonight has been advised to put on an extra layer.
