WORCESTERSHIRE residents are set to enjoy summer-like weather again, as temperatures are set to reach above 20C in the early part of next week.

Another ‘mini heatwave’ has been forecast for Monday and Tuesday - which is expected to be the warmest day of next week.

Forecasters say the temperatures are to rise up to 8C above normal for this time of year due to warm air from the south dislodging the cool and unsettled westerly airflow of recent days.

The forecast for Monday is for it to be sunny and breezy, reaching a high of 20C, and on Tuesday temperatures could get up to 22C. There will be plenty of sunshine, and UV levels will rise.

Hayfever and asthma sufferers are also being warned there will also be a higher pollen count.

But residents are advised to take advantage of the sun as the heatwave is not expected to stick around with temperatures dropping to 14C on Wednesday, and are unlikely to get above 18C for the rest of next week.
