Conditions will improve across the country as the week progresses and it will begin to feel increasingly warm – though some areas of northern Scotland could still see some showers.

“It will generally be a lot more settled this week,” said Met Office meteorologist Ellie Glaisyer.

“It will start to feel much more pleasant with temperatures on Tuesday likely to reach the very early twenties in the south, and then later on in the week, we could see temperatures of around 22C to 23C, while the north is likely to reach temperatures in the high teens.”

Ms Glaisyer said an area of high pressure will start to build and move across the UK from Wednesday, potentially bringing more settled, warmer, and drier weather.

It comes after the UK experienced a mix of rain and sunny spells over the bank holiday weekend.

The Met Office issued yellow weather warnings for parts of England, Wales and southern Scotland on Monday as it warned thunderstorms and heavy downpours could cause flooding and travel disruption.

The two warnings expired at 9pm on Monday evening, as showers began to ease across the UK.
