Further north and along the west coast, temperatures might reach double digits.

They said: “Temperatures are likely to start rather warm or warm for parts of the south and southeast, but will likely widely return back to, or rather below, average by the weekend.

BBC forecasters said the start of next week will be characterised by warmer temperatures, due to an Atlantic plume.

They said: “Southwest winds are expected to bring some warmer sub-tropical air from the Atlantic into the area for the first half of the week, with temperatures trending well above average for a few days.

“Southern England may see highs climb into the mid-teens in places.

“However, as winds gradually shift to more west or northwest, colder air will return for the second half of the week and moderate the temperatures again.”

The forecasters also expect April to be more settled and warmer, due to high pressure building in West Europe.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have slashed odds on next month being the hottest April on record.

The bookies cut odds to just 2/1, having been at 7/2 earlier in the week.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It looks like we’re in for a record-breaking few weeks ahead on the weather front, with temperatures on the up.”
