London and sheltered areas in the sun across the south east could see temperatures of up to 22-23C, the hottest in the country.

Cardiff may hit 21C on Saturday while Glasgow and Aberdeen will be around 20C.

Forecaster Simon Partridge told the Mirror: "After there was a chilly spell this weekend, we are going to see temperatures gradually increase through the week.

"By the weekend we could see in parts of the country temperatures of around 20C, or just above."

The Express has reported that above average warmth could go on for about six weeks.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden told the publication: "Later in April we are likely to see some further potentially substantial warm spells and these will continue at times through May.

"This will pave the way for what could be a warm start to summer, although this comes with some caveats sue to deviations in the jet stream."
