However Met Office meteorologist Clare Nasir said temperatures will rise again next week.

She said: “It will warm up into next week significantly turning hot in the south-east in the first part of the week with some warm sunshine pretty much anywhere.”

Thursday will start cool for most of the country though it will be largely dry.

Heading through the day Britain should expect cloudy conditions, with the sun sometimes breaking through, and some showers for northern Scotland later on.

Ms Nasir forecast: “A cold start, wrap up warm if you are out and about first thing.

“We could find the cloud building through the middle part of the day.

“Certainly for Scotland and Northern Ireland a band of cloud will come in from the Atlantic and bring in some showery bursts of rain which will affect northern and western parts of Scotland through the afternoon.

“Elsewhere it’s a mostly dry end to the day and certainly we’ll see some sunshine further south and east across England and Wales, temperatures here around 17-20 celsius, further north 14-16 will be your highs.”
