Brits could be basking in 24C temperatures, a weather forecaster has revealed. The sunshine follows a spate of mostly wet weather in the West Midlands over the last few days.

But summer is set to return from June 6 with the country warming up. Netweather predicts that areas around Manchester and Birmingham could bake at 24C while areas near Edinburgh and Newcastle could see temperatures hovering around 18-19C.

Jim Dale, a meteorologist with British Weather Services, told Express.co.uk: "We may also get some kind of push from the south, so the likes of Spain, Italy, and southern France will also start warming up. The warmth from these areas seems to be moving in our direction.

"It does look like we are coming out of the highly interchangeable wet weather and going towards something drier and warmer, and far more summer-like."

The Met Office’s long-range forecast between June 1 and 10 adds: "During the outlook period, the weather will turn more settled as high pressure builds in from the west. A few showers could still develop in places like the southeast during Saturday and Sunday afternoons, but for most it will be a dry weekend with periods of sunshine.

"It will feel warm with light winds, but it will feel cooler near the coast where onshore sea breezes develop. This fair weather is likely to continue for a few days into the following week, but thereafter the outlook becomes more uncertain.

"The south of the UK will probably be drier, although not ruling out scattered showers completely. Cooler and cloudier further northwest, where rain is more likely. Temperatures will probably be around normal or a little above average."

Met Office's five-day forecast for UK:


A bright start to the day across northern and eastern parts of the UK. Cloudier skies elsewhere with outbreaks of rain. The cloud and rain spreading north-eastwards as the day progresses, with heavy and thundery showers following. Feeling humid.


Scattered heavy showers are possible through this evening. Overnight it will remain mostly cloudy, with the risk of further showers, though these mainly focussed across northern and western areas.


Wednesday should be a brighter day, though there will be a mix of sunshine and showers. Some of the showers will be heavy with the risk of hail and thunder.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Sunshine and showers for Thursday, once again some heavy with hail and thundery. Slowly becoming drier through Friday and into Saturday, with increasing amounts of sunshine. Temperatures near average.
