But towards the end of this week and into the weekend a huge area of high pressure is set to start building over the British Isles bringing with it plenty of fine, warm weather.

Temperatures this weekend are set be around 21C-24C and next week looks set to be even hotter.

The high pressure is set to stick around for the foreseable future, pulling hot and humid air from the Mediterranean over much of the UK.

Temperatures are set to soar next week

As we go through next week forecasters predict temperatures will continue to rise with a sweltering 30C or higher possible.

The good news is that the longer term forecasters sees a smiliar pattern continue for the next two or three months.

The Met Office's three month outlook suggests this summer is likely to be dryer and warmer than usual with high pressure dominating our weather.
