Met Office pinpoints exactly when warm weather will return to the UK

The kids' summer holidays are starting across the UK – but they’ve had no luck with the weather so far.

Many places across the country have been wet and miserable, with unsettled weather and colder than average temperatures making playing out tricky.

The Met Office's forecast doesn't bring good news during the first two weeks of the holidays.

But thankfully the weather Gods could soon be ordering some sunshine, so the holidays aren’t a total washout.

The signs are that during the second week of August the weather could start to become more settled, according to the Met Office.

The UK is seeing poor weather currently due to the position of a jet stream – which is also pushing high pressure to the south where parts of Europe are seeing a heatwave.

Rachel Ayers, meteorologist at the Met Office, said: "At the moment it's divided, we sit on the cold side of the jet to the north of it, we've got low pressure coming.

"It can stay like this for quite a while as it has been for the last few weeks.

"It's hard to say when it will all break down, it's not looking like anything will soon.

"The heatwave is starting to ease a little in parts of Europe, but now the focus is moving to Italy and Greece away from Spain."

She added: "Looking at a longer range, it will be cool and changeable, into the second week of August it could be a little more settled.

"But it doesn't mean we're not going to see any settled interludes in the meantime, on Tuesday we've got a nudge of high pressure which means showers will be less heavy and more isolated, so it'll bring a more settled day.

"The overall picture for the next couple of weeks is mostly damp and no prolonged spells of settled weather or above average temperatures."
