Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin said there are signs of spring in the UK this week as temperatures pick up and potentially hit 14C. The weather forecaster said it will be quite a bit milder than it has been over the past few weeks. He said: “Most places will have a dry week. Increasingly, as the week goes on, we will see a little bit more in the way of sunshine and that will, particularly by Thursday and Friday, in some spots really start to lift the temperatures.”
The Met Office meteorologist said high pressure will particularly dominate the next seven days and along with the winds coming up from the south-west, there will be milder air across the nation.
Mr Deakin UK will be on the warm side of the jet stream towards the end of the week. But in the meantime, there will be several downpours across central Scotland and northern England on Tuesday as a weather front pushes in.
The weather front will pull away on Wednesday. The Met Office forecaster added: “Temperatures 10C or 11C – that’s even if it is cloudy. Where we see some sunshine, those temperatures could get close to the teens.”
Into Thursday, temperatures will continue to pick up. Mr Deakin said: “With the high pressure nearby, although it may start out a bit misty and a bit chilly, I’m hopeful we will see a bit more in the way of sunshine – certainly across the bulk of England and Wales.
“With that sunshine and the winds wafting up from the south, well, those temperatures getting up even higher, 11C or 12C or maybe even 13C or 14C in a few places.”
Mr Deakin said much of the country will not see a frost this week as temperatures will remain “above average” across the nation.
BBC Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood also welcomed a rise in temperatures towards the end of the week.
She said despite a frosty start on Monday the week’s weather will be “quite different from last week”.
Ms Kirkwood added: “First thing tomorrow, won’t be double figures but there will be some sunshine to see first thing.
“By tomorrow afternoon, temperatures will range from 10C to a high of 13C in Belfast.”
For the middle of the week “it’s going to be a breezier day generally”.
