TEMPERATURES are set to hit highs of 18C at the beginning of November.
The warm weather is expected to move into double figures this week – a welcome sight for Brits limited to socialising outside.
This comes as Britain was hit by heavy downpours and gusts this weekend ahead of a sunny interlude, according to the Met Office.
The Met Office launched a new tool to help planners prepare for further extremes of rainfall and high temperatures.
It warns that wild weather will become the "new normal" in the future and will place increasing challenges on health, infrastructure and services.
