However, the warm temperatures will hit the UK only after a second 60mph storm batters the country tomorrow. BBC forecast predicts the temperature to jump to 20C on Thursday to Monday.

Some areas should expect highs of 21C, making it hotter than Istanbul which is expected to experience temperatures of 19C.

After Hurricane Sam hit, soaking the country on Saturday , it is now heading towards Iceland which will suck warm subtropical air North.

“There will be talk of an Indian summer if Sam shoves warm southerly winds and a marked upturn in temperatures our way,” Met Office forecaster John Hammond said.

On Monday, dry conditions and sunny spells are due for many while some will experience foggy mornings, the Met Office has predicted.

However, the North West is set to see some rain and windy conditions.

A Met Office forecaster said: “Monday has more showers, and wet and windy weather arrives in the South West during the evening.

“Rain, some heavy, and coastal gales will affect England and Wales on Tuesday.

“It will become warmer and more settled from Wednesday, with temperatures expected to be above average through the period to the weekend, with sunny spells and patchy overnight fog.

“But the North West is forecast unsettled conditions with cloud, rain and some strong winds.”

The warm weather will only come after an episode of downpours, with strong winds and heavy rain expected over the following days.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “Low pressure will dominate the weather over the coming days bringing strong winds and heavy rain at times.

“Further coastal gales are possible in the south and west late on Monday and into Tuesday as another weather system moves in from the Atlantic.

“There are large uncertainties around the track of this system but currently it looks like it will bring more heavy rain and strong winds to parts of Wales and southern England.”
