Britain is set to bask in summer temperatures once more as a mini-heatwave sweeps through the UK next week after a rainy weekend.
Forecasters are expecting temperatures to reach eight degrees higher than normal for this time of the year, as a high pressure front sucks warm and sunny weather back towards the mainland.
Meteorologists believe highs could reach 20C in north-east England by Tuesdays, with highs up to 19C elsewhere – hopefully reaching us here in Swindon.
However, showers are likely in the south and west to start with on Monday.
Weather Channel forecaster Katie Greening said, “Temperatures will be unseasonably cool the time of year next week, but spiking slightly above average Tuesday.
“The higher temperatures will be as a result of the flow of warmer air from the south ahead of low pressure. In its wake temperatures will lower in the following northerly to north-westerly wind.”
“A weak front with cloud and some spits of rain is forecast on Wednesday, turning much cooler again on Thursday and Friday with highs of 13 to 16C.”
