Meanwhile, the Met Office long range forecasts for next week say that there is still uncertainty as to how much conditions will improve next week.
The office said: “From mid-next week onwards, conditions could gradually become more settled with a good deal of dry weather, variable cloud and spells of sunshine, though this is still uncertain.
“For the remainder of this period, there is a greater chance of warmer and drier than average conditions overall.
“The occasional spell of rain and unsettled weather are still possible, particularly over northwestern areas. However, most of the UK could see fine and dry conditions with light showers at times.
“Temperatures are likely to be around average in the northwest and above average elsewhere, whilst south and southeastern areas could see conditions feeling very warm.”
