A change from the rain the UK has been experiencing is set to occur this weekend with a European flume bringing temperatures back up.

With France expected to enjoy 30C heat this weekend, that heat will spread across parts of England with highs of 24C expected to reach the nation.

The warm weather is set to spread across the rest of England, but at lower temperatures of around 21C.

According to the Met Office forecasts: “An unsettled start to the week with spells of rain for most, which may turn heavy at times, especially over western areas.

“The best of any drier and brighter weather is expected over eastern areas.”

Having been dampened by torrential downpours this week, its a welcome reprieve from the tough weather conditions for the UK.

Despite the brief return of warm weather from this weekend, the storms are set to return next week with Hurricanes Danielle and Earl currently en route towards Europe.

Jo Farrow, a senior forecaster at Netweather, said: “After a week of downpours and thunderstorms around a stubborn area of low pressure, things will change for the weekend.

“The showery low will pull away eastwards and pressure will rise, this will bring a settled spell of weather with light winds.

“After the rain showers, there will be moisture on the ground and some cooler air for northern Britain on Friday night which could allow mist and fog to form early on Saturday.”

She further added: “Saturday looks fair but there is some uncertainty for Sunday about the timing of rain from the west linked to ex-hurricane Danielle.

“This system will push very warm and humid air across the English Channel for Sunday and Monday. Temperatures will be in the low to mid-twenties depending on the increasing cloud.”

The Met Office said it'll be the Northern and western areas of the UK who will suffer most from the torrential rainy conditions.

“A mix of sunny spells and showers or longer spells of rain is likely to continue through the rest of the period," they said.

“Northern and western areas are likely to see the most of the rain and showers with southern and eastern areas expected to remain drier with an increased chance of mist or fog patches developing overnight.
