After a week of very unsettled weather summer is set to return next week in style.

From the early part of next week onwards temperatures in Sheffield will start to rise steadily day by day and by next weekend the city will be basking in hot wall-to-wall sunshine.

According to forecasters a change in the Jet Stream will see a huge area of high pressure sitting over the UK bringing with it plenty of sunshine and very warm temperatures.

By Thursday and Friday next week temperatures in Sheffield will be in the low 20s and by the weekend we'll be enjoying temperatures of 25C or higher.

The current long-range forecast suggests the good weather will stick around for a good few days making it the longest warm spell of the year so far.
