Heavy showers to soak Britain before seven-day heatwave reaches peak of 25C

Britain is set for a soaking today ahead of a seven-day heatwave starting tomorrow.

Temperatures are expected to rise from a maximum of 22C today to 24C tomorrow, reaching a peak of 25C on Sunday, according to Weather Online.

Downpours are forecast for all of England and parts of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland over the next 24 hours, although these will make way for sunshine towards the end of the week.

South-west England is likely to experience fog early today and mist tomorrow morning, according to the Met Office.

Wind gusts of up to 40 miles-per-hour are also expected in parts of the UK this afternoon.

Heavy showers will stop tomorrow night, with a sunny weekend in store for the majority of the UK.

Today's and windy weather is the result of the remnants of Hurricane Dorian and Storm Gabrielle hitting Britain.

However, the two tempests are also sucking hot air north, which will see the country heat up over the next few days.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “It turns warmer and humid as the remnants of Dorian and Gabrielle feed tropical air to the UK.

“It turns warmer still at the weekend and early next week with high pressure, with 25C possible in the south.”

The warm weather will last until at least the middle of next week.

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “Sunny weather is forecast to see highs up to 26C.

“High pressure is expected to bring a southerly feed."
