Sunshine in Britain will ease off today with cloudy and humid weather in places – but much of the country will enjoy more sunshine and dry conditions leading up to a sunny start into next week.

After a wet start, temperatures this afternoon in the north west of England along with parts of London and East Anglia could rise to around 21°C.

Rain is likely to fall in areas around Cardiff, Southampton and Birmingham, while northern parts of Britain remain relatively dry.

A Met Office forecaster said: ‘It will be a cloudy and damp start to Sunday morning in parts of England and Wales. Drier in the north and west with some early sun.’

Much of the country will see “patchy rain, heavy showers and some warm sunshine,” they said.

But the heat will return from next week as temperatures will reach 80F (27C), heralding a return to the sun.

Monday will see “sunshine spells and scattered showers” across England, with more rain in southern parts of the country, a Met Office forecaster told MailOnline.

After a wet start, temperatures this afternoon in the north west of England along with parts of London and East Anglia could rise to around 21°C.

But as the week goes on, temperatures will rise and the sun will shine over much of Britain.

It comes after the country basked in glorious sunshine yesterday as they flocked to the beaches in Bournemouth and Blackpool for the 77F weekend.

Hundreds of visitors flocked to the iconic beaches to enjoy the warm weather, while others were spotted paddle boarding in Cullercoats Bay, in North Tyneside, as they prepared for a blistering weekend ahead.

In London, sunbathers lay on the grass in Wimbledon Common as the sun returned to the capital and the mercury levels continued to rise.

And in Lyme Regis, the beaches were packed as sunbathers flocked to the seaside town to take in the sea air.

The recent blistering weather followed a May that was the wettest on record in some areas.

A Met Office spokesperson had said MailOnline would see today “cloudy skies in the south with outbreaks of rain but sunny spells in the southeast’ with top temperatures around 75F (24C).

Last month, wet weather forecasts dominated, with Wales registering 200.7mm of rain – double the monthly average – making it the wettest May in records dating back to 1862.

The scenes of Britons coming out en masse come amid a spike in cases of India’s ‘Delta’ Covid variant.

Last week, Professor Neil Ferguson warned that the Indian ‘Delta’ variant could be 100 percent more contagious than the Kent variant, as official data showed it was also twice as likely to hospitalize unvaccinated patients.

Professor Ferguson – a senior SAGE modeler dubbed ‘Professor Lockdown’ for his death predictions that led to the first shutdown last March – warned that emerging evidence about the Indian ‘Delta’ variant was ‘not positive in any way’.
