Following downpours across the country, forecasters are reporting a ridge of high pressure moving from Europe, causing temperatures in the UK to skyrocket. Temperatures are expected to rise on Tuesday before hitting a high on Wednesday, forecasters have predicted. Due to this hot weather band, forecasters report the South of England and South-East may see a high of 26C.
For the north of England, the BBC has predicted the mercury to rise to 22C (71.6F) after dropping to the low teens on Tuesday morning.
Due to this plume of hot air, the forecaster claimed temperatures across the UK will be nearer to what is expected for this time of year.
Although a wet weather front is approaching from the west, BBC meteorologist Matt Taylor reports a band of “hot air” will arrive causing temperatures to increase throughout Wednesday and last until Friday.
Commenting on the weather, he said: “Temperatures should be closer to what they should be for this time of year with one or two areas seeing 26C possibly.”
In the far north of Scotland the mercury will remain at 16C (60.8F) but for many other areas, temperatures will rise to 22C on average.
Mr Taylor added: “As we go into Wednesday, the ridge of high pressure will remain to the South-East.
“A weather front will be pushing into the west which will bring some welcome rain to parts of western Scotland.
“But as it approaches, we tap into some slightly warmer air.

“Temperatures will dip down closer to the seasonal norm. “
