Temperatures to reach around 25°C in South West next week

After a prolonged period of weather which has very much felt like autumn has arrived, things are set to change with a taste of summer coming back to Cornwall and Devon.

The Met Office, which is based in Exeter, forecasts that next week will see a change from recent systems which brought two named storms to the UK.

By the start of next week, temperature should have rocketed, with bright clear skies predicted for parts of the country for the most of the week.

There should be good weather across the whole country, with the south and east seeing the best.

The Met Office forecast for Cornwall and Devon from Saturday to Monday says: “A cloudy start to Saturday, but mostly dry with sunny spells from the afternoon continuing into Sunday. Turning warmer, brighter and staying settled for Monday.”

Stay in the know

A forecast for Truro is predicting a sunny Sunday with highs of 19°C and more sunshine on Monday with highs hitting 21.

The week after that will remain largely dry with sunny spells and temperatures hovering around 18 and 19°C.

Plymouth will hit 23°C on a sunny Monday with temperatures around 19 and 20°C for a good few days after.

Exeter is forecast to also be feeling the heat with a sunny 23°C day on Monday – although some forecasts elsewhere predict it could reach 24°C in the city – and temperatures of 21 and 22°C for the rest of the week.

Both Cornwall and Devon are looking largely dry next week with rain, at present, only predicted on Wednesday.

At present, the hottest part of the country is looking like the South East which has forecast of sun from Sunday to Wednesday with temperatures hitting around 28°C on Tuesday.

In the South West, Monday will be the sunniest with temperatures around 20°C at the start of the week.

Wales will see temperatures climb to 24°C while the Midlands will get to 26°C.

The east of the country will climb to at least 26°C by Tuesday while across the north there will be clear skies and temperatures around 22°C on Monday.

Northern Ireland and Scotland will have more cloud, but temperatures will still be around 20°C for the start of the week.
