UK weather: Met Office forecasts when hot weather is set to take over Britain

The UK will soon see hotter temperatures after a rainy coronation weekend as summer finally arrives in the country.

Monday started with a shower for many as the wet weather moved in from the Atlantic despite warmer temperatures in late teens.

The rest of the day will remain cloudy in parts of the south and east, with Northern Ireland and then western Scotland expected to see heavy showers and thunderstorms. The temperature will remain in the double digits.

A yellow weather warning remains in place for northern areas until 21:00, with thunderstorms, hail and lightning expected in some areas, disrupting traffic and train service.

The night will be covered with patches of fog in the northwest, while rain will begin to ease in the east but remain quite cloudy. Scattered heavy showers will remain, but with clear showers.

The weather agency said sunshine will return to the UK on Tuesday, although wet conditions will continue as the first part of the week will be sunny and showers mixed.

Some slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms south and east in the afternoon are expected.

At the end of the month, weather maps show high barometric pressure in the water, something that will raise temperatures as summer begins.

Temperatures are expected to rise above 20 degrees Celsius and surpass the 21.3 degrees Celsius witnessed in Sheffield on Sunday – the highest of the year so far.

Last year, the UK experienced one of its hottest summers on record, with temperatures rising above 40 degrees Celsius for the first time as heatwaves blanketed Europe and much of the world.

This year, temperatures are expected to be warmer than usual in many places, with changes expected in the Pacific as La Nina, a weather pattern associated with warming, develops.
