Brits may be able to sneak in one more week of Summer as temperatures look set to soar.

The UK will be sizzling with 25C degree heat this week as tropical air sweeps across the nation.

Following weeks of dismal rain and thunderstorms, sun-loving Brits will be able to bask out in one more blast of summer sunshine.

Forecasters expect much of the UK to be blessed with mid-20C heat this week following a mixed weekend of sunshine and showers.

According to the Met Office, warm Atlantic air is set to sweep in from the West and bring temperatures from the low to mid twenties.

Along with the sunshine there may be some showers as we move from Summer into Autumn.

The Met Office said: “However, this warm weather will be associated with cloud and rain for some of us, as the jet stream remains over the UK."

And a spokesperson told the Sun: "It is likely to turn warm in the south-east of England where temperatures will rise into the low 20Cs, perhaps mid-20Cs in one or two spots.

"At present, this is not expected to fit the criteria for a heatwave, however, as this requires temperatures of 27C or higher in the south-east for at least three consecutive days."

Met Office forecaster Bonnie Diamond told The Sun Online the weather for the next few days will be a "mixed bag" and quite "changeable" with a "mixture of showers and sunny spells".

Ms Diamond said: "In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Northern England there will be a mix of bright spells and heavy showers.

"There is risk of some thunder across the northern areas.

"Temperatures will be slightly below normal at 15C to 19C - with the warmer temperatures further South."

The weekend will be a mixed bag for much of Britain, feeling cool with some sunshine before plummeting temperatures overnight.

Bookies have already slashed odds on September being the hottest on record in the UK.

"Summer is going to return next week and with one last heatwave, our betting suggests this month could end as the hottest September on record," said Coral's John Hill.
