Just as we though we were set for warm jumpers, water bottles and hot chocolate, it looks like the weather is about to improve again!

Britain is set to be hotter than Istanbul this week, it has been reported, due to the fallout from Hurricane Sam bringing temperatures of up to 21C.

First, we will have a 60mph storm unfortunately, and it's set to swirl around the country at the start of the week.

Next, there'll be five days of heat, with the hurricane sucking up warm subtropical air.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “Hurricanes can have some good impacts – as Sam drives warm air north, allowing high pressure to settle things down for most of the UK.”

Temperatures will jump to 20C from Thursday to Monday, with highs of 21C in some places.

Conditions will be dry and there'll be sunny spells for some, but fog in the mornings.

Unfortunately for those in the North West there may well be rain and wind still.

The Met Office added: "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."

The weather report comes after Britain was battered by rain over the weekend.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning, with parts of Britain battling nine hours of gales and rain tomorrow on Saturday.

Forecasters also warned that the UK would experience its first snowfall of Autumn last week, as frosty conditions were set to sweep across Britain, showing just how unpredictable the weather is at present.
