The beginning of June has seen the UK drenched with heavy downpours and strong winds. But Britons can expect a marked change in the weather in the coming weeks, as forecasters expect an area of low pressure to move out as the mercury rises to the high 20s.
Temperatures rose to the mid-20s today as Britons welcomed the return of the glorious sunshine, and a few scattered showers failed to dampen their spirits.
The warm weather looks set to continue for the rest of the month, as a jet stream and bout of low pressure moves away from the UK.
Charts from forecasters WXCharts shows much of the UK turn red tomorrow as the mercury rises to highs of 24C.
Although some parts of the UK could still see the odd spell of rain on Sunday and early next week – the weather will be much calmer than the previous few days.
The forecasters show the rest of the week will stay fairly warm, with the best of the weather expected next weekend.
Weather maps predict Saturday and Sunday will be characterised by high temperatures and little rainfall.
Netweather also indicate the UK can expect scorching temperatures from this Monday.
The forecasters predict the mercury will soar to 26C, with the south east and the midlands seeing the best of the warm weather.

But despite the higher temperatures, the UK can still expect the odd shower and potential thunder storm this week.
Commenting on the change in weather, Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said the UK will shift towards very warn and humid air as the sunshine returns.
He said: “Across much of the UK the weather is fairly static, it looks like it will stay fairly humid and warm and there will be some sunshine.
“But the air will still be unstable enough to produce some of these sharp and slow moving downpours.”
By the end of the week the weather becomes more settled and dry for much of the UK as an area of low pressure passes.
He said: “For many places it will turn drier with the area of low pressure disappearing to the south.”
But Northern Ireland and Scotland are set to be hit by an area of returning low pressure, which could bring cooler temperatures and showers.
