After days of miserable autumnal weather where it has been cold, damp and windy the weather is set to change and bring back a taste of summer.
The Met Office forecasts that next week will see a change from recent systems – which brought two named storms to the UK.
By the start of next week the temperature should have rocketed 10C, with bright clear skies predicted for parts of the country for the rest of the week.
There should be good weather across the whole country, with the south and east seeing the best.
The Met Office forecast for Monday says it will ‘very warm, perhaps locally hot on Sunday and Monday, with plenty of sunshine but feeling muggy.’
The forecast for the whole of the country for next week reads: “The start of the period is likely to bring a change to the weather seen in recent weeks, with conditions expected to become more settled in the upcoming days.
“This settled weather looks set to bring temperatures to above normal for most, with the South possibly seeing warm or very warm temperature at times.
“Elsewhere, clear skies and light winds at night may see widespread mist or fog develop. The warm weather in the south could also harbour some thundery activity, particularly for the South West after a prolonged warm spell.
“Uncertainty lies in the duration of the settled weather, with a potential return to more changeable, unsettled weather by the end of the period.”
For the South East the forecast is for sun from Sunday to Wednesday with temperatures hitting around 28C on Tuesday.
In the South West Monday will be the sunniest with temperatures around 20C at the start of the week.
Wales will see temperatures climb to 24C while the Midlands will get to 26C.
The east of the country will climb to at least 26C by Tuesday while across the north there will be clear skies and temperatures around 22C on Monday.
Northern Ireland and Scotland will have more cloud – but temperatures will still be around 20C for the start of the week.
