UK treated to Monday mini-heatwave that will bring mercury up to sweltering 18C

The glorious sunny weather looks set to continue with a mini-heatwave due to begin tomorrow.

Monday is expected to be hotter than today, with temperatures set to hit 18C in southern England.

Most of the UK is predicted to be sunny – just a week since people were allowed to meet outdoors for the first time since November last year.

The weather is expected to get a bit colder towards the end of the week, but still remaining above 12C, the Mirror reports.

A Met Office forecaster said there will be some patchy rain in the North East tonight, but most of the country will remain dry.

On Monday, most areas in the UK will be sunny, with warm temperatures allowing people to enjoy outdoor spaces in line with Covid restrictions, according to the Met Office.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “Daytime temperatures will rise a little over the next few days.”

From Tuesday, rain is set to move from the North West towards the South East, but elsewhere the weather is set to be dry.

Showers could hit some areas in the North East of the UK and rural places could experience overnight frost and fog.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "As we go into Monday, Tuesday and possibly Wednesday we could see temperatures reach 16 to 18C in southern parts of England and Wales.

"The north is going to be a bit colder.

"We’ve got cold air coming down the north of the UK on Sunday, with northerly winds picking up through Monday."

The Met Office said temperatures are slightly above average for this time of year, when it is normally 12C or 13 in England.

The warm weather conditions have been a boost for Brits as many headed out for a drink at pub beer gardens or other outdoor hospitality venues.

At the moment, there are no weather warnings in place for next week.
