UK weather forecast – Sun to return with 25C heat next week

SUNSHINE is set to return to the UK with 25C hot weather – but only after Brits are soaked once more in a weekend washout, according to the Met Office.

Temperatures will remain low for the next few days with heavy rain continuing to blight the start of summer.

But by the middle of next week things should start to pick up and look sunny and warm again.

Sunday could see the end of the wet weather as the sun could poke through the rainclouds over much of the country and temperatures are expected to rise to 19C in the south.

A spokesman for The Met Office told the Sun Online the band of weather that will keep the country damp over the weekend is moving away slowly.

And by the beginning of next week we should see clearer skies and warmer temperatures.

As Europe experiences a warm front moving in and pushing the mercury up into the 30s, the south of the UK will get brushed by some of the heat.

Weather forecaster Grahame Madge said: “There not a great deal of certainty on that influence but certainly on Wednesday we will see temperatures rising.

We could get to 25C somewhere in the south east, and we may see temperature creeping above that.”

Following the heat on Wednesday there is a prediction for thunderstorms to roll in, and a more mixed bag of weather for the rest of the week.
