She continued: “On Tuesday it will be hot dry and sunny across Cyprus, Turkey and Greece.

“It will be settled and dry across the Balkans in towards central parts of Europe.

“Temperatures are well above average, temperatures are up to 10C above average in some places.

“That heat will push through Germany, France and some parts of the UK.

“Still some rain in the north west of the UK and that is going to be heading into Scandinavia too.

“The developing low pressure will bring windy conditions around the Baltic sea in the middle of the week.

“For many central areas that heat will ease as we head to the end of the week.”

The BBC’s Matt Taylor forecast  that conditions will brighten for most of the UK through Tuesday despite a cloudy start across western areas.

Temperatures will slowly start to return to their seasonal average as a northeasterly moves in across the UK, bringing thermometers down to 12C in some areas.

The BBC Weather forecaster said: “Into tomorrow, there will be more cloud generally, particularly in western areas but there’s not going to be as much rain.

“Here it could be actually a little more brighter tomorrow afternoon and it will be a bit warmer.

“But this all changes as we go into Wednesday, we switch our wind round for a northeasterly, that will bring low cloud across eastern parts of Scotland, northeast England, there will be some drizzle to go with that.

“Largely dry and bright, still around 24C in the east and south of England but it’s going to be around 12C to 13C across some parts of Scotland. So after a brief upsurge in temperatures, they will be down again.”
