After a week of huddling from unseasonably chilly weather and torrential rain, the Met Office has confirmed summer weather will return next week, with temperatures in the high twenties in parts of the south.
Today’s weather might be putting us in mind of hot chocolate and warm blankets but over the next few days we can look forward to the return of warm, dry weather, according to the Met Office. Over the weekend we may see a few showers but from Monday, Dorset can expect to see the mercury rise.
Deputy Chief Meteorologist Martin Young, said: By the middle of next week we’ll see temperatures across much of England and Wales widely climbing into the mid to high twenties Celsius and it will probably be hot in parts of southern and eastern England, as temperatures peak close to 30 Celsius.”
There’s good news for thunderstorm fans, too, as the warm weather carries the potential for severe storms towards the end of next week.
