Britain could be getting a reprise from the never-ending winter next week, with temperatures set to soar – or at least hop – to double figures.

It’ll be as warm as Madrid in the south on Monday, with weather forecasters predicting highs of 13 degrees.

A welcome change from the snow, sleet and biting winds we’ve been enduring for the past weeks, but don’t expect to see a lot of sunshine as it’ll be patchy at best.

Not all of the UK has a balmy mid-February to look forward to; parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland will be cooler and face a higher chance of rain.

Temperatures will range from around 3C in Scotland to highs of 13C in the south of England, although a lot of us can expect 10/11C temperatures.

Winds will still be coming in from the east, but they’ll be lighter than the ones we’ve been battling through this past week; that will help to feel warmer.

Monday and Wednesday are going to offer the best weather, with more cloud moving in on Tuesday and temperatures beginning to dip again on Thursday.
