The South of England could be as warm as sunny Barcelona this week with temperatures soaring to 18C.
Meanwhile the North of the country and Scotland will see two days of Amber rain warnings with heavy showers expected. Brits in the south were treated to a balmy weekend with the mercury hitting as high as 16C in parts of London, and the warm weather is set to continue.
The Met Office spokesperson Oli Claydon said mid-teen temperatures are expected to continue across the nation, which will seem “especially warm” following the recent freezing weather.
He said: “We’re getting milder and wetter air from the west causing warmer weather all round, but we’re a way off hitting a February record.”
Tomorrow will see some bright and sunny spells in the south-east with highs of 13C.
But throughout the rest of the week temperatures will rise yet again with some areas seeing highs of 18C on Wednesday.
This will mean parts of England will be hotter than Barcelona where the mercury will reach 16C.
This comes after a month of freezing weather which has seen severe snowfall across the UK.
The UK’s coldest temperature for 65 years was recorded in Aberdeenshire when locals endured -23C.
But not everyone in Britain will be enjoying a mild week – with the Met Office issuing FIVE weather warnings for rain.
