“With the heat will come dry and sunny spells for many, but the rains, sometimes heavy, will also spread across the country, particularly in the north and west. They can be stormy at times in parts of the south, central England and the south west of Scotland.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “The plume of warm air we expected from the south will bring higher temperatures across the country over the next week.

“However, it appears that the effects of the Atlantic lows will prevent a sustained high pressure from forming from the east.

“This means that while we may see some warm days, and in very warm places, in general, the coming week will feel more like what we would expect from a warm spell in May, with some heavy rain, rather than warmer weather. hot summer.”
