BRITS are set to enjoy an Indian Summer sending temperatures soaring to a sizzling 23C – hotter than Greece.
The UK has been lashed by heavy rain and monster winds after Storm Ali and Storm Bronagh hit bringing a danger to life warning.
But the weather looks set to do a U-turn this week with temperatures beginning to climb to 23C by Thursday – making it hotter than Athens.
The south, Wales and the Midlands will see the best of the weather with glorious sunshine as Brits enjoy an Indian Summer.
But the north will see more wind and outbreaks of rain through the week and cloudier skies – although temperatures will still be warmer than the recent chillier conditions.
And sunshine is predicted for most the UK this weekend after last Saturday and Sunday were washed out by the two named storms.
The Met Office said: “A north-south split will develop through the middle of the week, becoming cloudier and windy with some rain in the North. but remaining settled, dry and mostly sunny in the South.
“Through the rest of September the weather should stay largely settled with long spells of sunshine and generally light winds.
“For October, settled and drier conditions are likely to dominate across many parts of the UK during the beginning of this period.”
Storm Ali last week sent Britain grinding to a halt with 100mph winds grounding planes, closing roads and leaving more than 170,000 people without power.
