While Europe sizzles, the UK has suffered torrential rainfall, with the ninth wettest August ever recorded for the City of London.

Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of Weathertrending said: “Many of us can look forward to some fine weather, so don’t put away your garden furniture just yet.

“A late blast of summer sunshine is on the menu. It will be late summer at its best, with a sunnier finale to a dull August.

“The mid-20s is possible by midweek, with the fine weather holding on for the weekend and for a few more days into September for most.”

Sarah Kent, a Met Office forecaster, informed PA news agency: “High pressure is dominating this week bringing mostly settled conditions with variable amounts of cloud.

“However, there will be a north-easterly breeze coming in from the North Sea making it feel colder for some regions especially later on in the week.

“Where there is sun, particularly on Wednesday, temperatures could reach highs of 24C in England and Wales, while western areas in Scotland and Northern Ireland could be up to 26C.

“This all depends on the amount of cloud some regions see.”
