Temperatures are set to soar this week to an unseasonably warm 20C –
but the Indian summer is not set to last as snow as predicted for the
end of the week.
A wave of hot air from North Africa is set to sweep through the
United Kingdom from tomorrow bringing sunny spells and temperatures in
the high teens across the UK.
It could also bring ‘blood rain’ – rain carrying red dust from the Sahara which is capable of staining cars.
And freezing arctic winds are set to send temperatures plummeting at
the end of the week, with snow forecast in the north of England and
Scotland by next weekend.
The Met Weather Office said London and the south east will enjoy the
hottest weather with temperatures soaring to a very warm 20 degrees
centigrade on Monday and Tuesday, provided cloud lifts.
The rest of England and Wales will also enjoy the warm spell with
temperatures hovering in the mid teens, although forecaster say it will
The Met Office also said that red dust kicked up in storms in the
Sahara desert and blown over could affect parts of the south east of
England during the week.
The dust, which has been blown to the UK as part of the band of warm air, is expected to leave red stains on cars.
