Temperatures are also expected to peak at 22 degrees Celsius in London, with highs of 23 degrees Celsius in Northern Ireland. The Met Office has reported that despite these changes, Britain will ‘still feel warm’, as the Express reports.

Over the weekend, London and Cambridge proved to be some of the warmest areas in Britain, with scores of people heading to local beaches and parks to enjoy the clear weather. However, there will also be showers this week and flood warnings have been issued.

The Met Office has warned of the possibility of ‘thunderstorms’ on Friday, May 17. Looking ahead to the period from Friday 17 May to Sunday 26 May, the Met Office’s long-term forecast suggested: “Changeable with showers developing throughout the day across Britain into the end of the week and into the weekend.”

“Heaviest showers and greatest risk of thunderstorms in southern parts. Temperatures will generally be around or slightly above average, although winds will be mostly light and still warm to the touch in sunnier areas.”
