Brits are set to battle 60mph winds this weekend, before revelling in a mini- heatwave next week.

With five storms so far this year, the wind shows no signs of stopping over the next couple of days.

The northern parts of Britain will be the worst hit this Sunday with the speed reaching 60pmh.

Along with this, the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain this Saturday in some parts of the UK, including Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The warning will come into affect on Saturday at 6pm and flooding will be possible in affected areas.

The Met Office said: “Heavy and persistent rain is expected to develop over western Scotland during Saturday evening and continue through much of Sunday.”

Today the southern and eastern parts of England and Wales will be dry and mostly clear.

Although the north and the west will see some cloud and a few showers.

Scotland and Northern Ireland will remain fairly clear with a few showers around north-western coasts.

However, there will be relief next week as the UK embraced scorching weather with mercury reaching 30C in some parts.

On Monday, warm air from Europe will seep into Britain which is great news for Brits.

Met Office forecaster Nicola Maxey said to The Sun: "It's typical.

"After a wet and windy end to August, which saw two named storms, this weather is very welcome.

"Warm air is arriving from the Continent.

"We're already seeing temperatures increase, particularly across London and the south east.

People living in the south east will enjoy the warmest weather, but the south west will still bake in highs of around 26C.

Although the best weather will be on Monday, over the weekend the mercury will hover around the low 20s.

This comes as Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced stricter lockdown rules in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

From Monday, indoors or outdoors, it will be illegal to gather in groups of more than six in England.

Commenting on the return of high temperatures later in the weekend, Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Nick Silkstone, said: “Along with the dry and sunny weather, southern areas of the UK will see temperatures rise due to a combination of high pressure and warm air from the continent.

“On Sunday temperatures across central and southern England will reach into the low to mid 20’s Celsius and it’ll turn warmer still as we start the new week, with temperatures possibly reaching around 29 or 30 Celsius in the south east early next week.”
