UK weather forecast – Britain set for week of 24C sunshine after rain washed away mini-heatwave


- Advertisment -

BRITAIN is set for a week of sunshine after a Sunday washout brought an end to a mini-heatwave.

Beaches and parks were packed out by sun lovers on Friday and Saturday as temperatures soared to 29C.

Britain is set to bask in temperatures of up to 24C

Britain was hotter than Mexico and Ibiza before rain returned yesterday and turned beaches and parks from packed summer hotspots to deserted scenes within hours.

But the sunshine is expected to make a swift return today with sunshine and temperatures of up to 24C set to stay until Saturday.

A Met Office forecaster said: “On Monday most southern areas will be quite sunny and feeling pleasantly warm by afternoon.

“Central parts will be a little cloudier but mostly dry, while sunshine and showers will affect northern UK and perhaps be heavier towards northern Scotland.

“Things will be settled on Tuesday, but rain will arrive into far North West of England early Wednesday and erratically southeast.

“Temperatures will be rather cool at first but become warm in the south later on.”

People were out enjoying the sunshine on the beaches in Lyme Regis in Dorset, Bournemouth, Margate and Cornwall as the mercury hit 25C yesterday making it hotter than Mexico City’s 24C.

But the rain brought an end to the ‘mini heatwave’ that hit the UK late last week.

Last week’s warmer weather had been welcomed by Brits after a dreary start to July with lower than average sunshine.
