Despite the wet weather , temperatures will start to pick up in the middle of the week and there could be highs of 24C.

The mercury will continue to rise on Thursday, hitting 26C in London, although thunderstorms are expected in parts of Scotland and north and north-east England.

Despite these downpours, the rest of the country will see a fairly sunny day.

Friday is expected to bring highs of 27C and sunshine across large swathes of the UK, although there could some thunderstorms in north England and lighter rainfall in the south-east.
