Brits are set to enjoy the last sunshine of summer this week as temperatures rise again. Autumn officially starts on Friday with the weather expected to take a turn for the worse with chilly nights returning. But not before heat returns this week with thermometers poised to touch 21C in parts of the UK.
Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said temperatures will rise above average over the next few days and Met Office forecaster Steven Keates said the warmest weather will be on Thursday, saying: “Things are going to turn warmer over the next few days and overall we are looking at a better week than last week. Most of the showers on Monday will be in the east and southeast with the north drier and brighter.
“After a chilly start on Tuesday we are looking at a settled day and although there will be some showers it is not a bad day with temperatures of 18C or 19C in the south and 13C in the north … We could see 21C on Thursday with 19C or 20C more widely around the south and mid teens further north.”
