As Storm Antoni blows out warmer weather is set to return this week with temperatures reaching as high as 28C in parts of the UK.
The Met Office has forecast that by Wednesday there could be highs of 25C and by Thursday the temperature could hit as high as 28C.
Meteorologist Simon Partridge told the Independent, “By Thursday, we will probably reach 27C-28C in southeast England.
“Wednesday to Thursday will be when we get an area of high pressure for a change and winds coming in from the south.
“It won’t be all sunshine as there will be sunny spells but a fair bit of cloud, particularly towards the north and the west.
“But by Friday a band of rain will move in across the UK and we will be back to where we are today.
“By Saturday we will be back to showers and temperatures to around if not a little bit below average.”
The southwestern areas are expected to be cloudy and wet later this week.
A Met Office spokesperson said, “Similar conditions are likely to persist throughout the rest of the period, with high pressure to the east of the UK bringing dry weather to the southeast.
“However, a low-pressure system in the northwest is likely to bring wet and rainy conditions to the northwest areas.
“Perhaps periods of low clouds and misty conditions at times for the south.
“Winds are likely to be light for most, stronger in the north. Temperatures will mostly be warmer than average.”
