Met Office hot weather forecast: Soaring temperatures to return THIS week- latest forecast

Freezing air from Norway has blown across the sea to the UK, causing cold temperatures and a frosty start for many. Following the heat of last week and over the weekend, this is a shock to the system - as the highs had reached the mid 20C.

On Easter Sunday, temperatures soared to 25C in Kew Gardens and St James's Park, sparking thunderstorms and humid conditions.

These temperatures - recorded by the - were just below the Easter record set in 2011, however, in that year the calendar date for Easter was two weeks later.

Now, cold air has brought a cold start to the week, with temperatures only reaching 14.4C at their highest on Easter Monday.

However, don't despair - as the hot weather is forecast to make a comeback later this week.

The exception again remains the far northwest where it remains stubbornly cloudy.

From Thursday to Saturday, it will be initially cloudy in the north with some patchy light rain, but becoming brighter with time.

Further south it will quickly become cloudy, with an increased risk of rain and showers over the following days.

Met Office long range forecast from Saturday, April 18, to Monday, April 27.

Remaining mostly fine and dry on Saturday with many places seeing sunny spells once early mist patches clear.

The south/southwest may see cloud build through the day with some outbreaks of showery rain at times.

Generally warm, but cooler in the breeze. Looking further ahead, settled conditions seem likely to continue for much of the country with some good spells of sunshine and dry weather, especially across central areas of the UK.

Showers and some longer spells of rain are possible at times in the south, whilst the far north may see bands of more persistent rain accompanied by stronger winds.

Temperatures should be above average for most, but there is still the risk of the odd isolated frost in rural areas by night.
