A spokesperson said: “It is likely to turn warm in the south-east of England where temperatures will rise into the low 20Cs, perhaps mid-20Cs in one or two spots.
“At present, this is not expected to fit the criteria for a heatwave, however, as this requires temperatures of 27C or higher in the south-east for at least three consecutive days.”
Warmer Atlantic air will track across the UK from the west with England and Wales forecast to see the mercury soar as high as 24C next week.
However, the Met Office said: “This warm weather will be associated with cloud and rain for some of us, as the jet stream remains over the UK.”
