Temperatures soar to double figures as UK finally thaws from Big Freeze, Milder air from the Atlantic is set to warm things up across much of the UK after icy conditions last week.
AFTER a week of being battered by heavy snow storms, flooding and wild windy weather, Brits will bask in temperatures hotter than Barcelona this week as things begin to heat up.
The week to come promises to be much milder than the last with temperatures soaring to well-above average, with highs of 12C expected in Aberdeen – making it hotter than parts of Spain.
Despite the soaring temperatures however the UK is still on flood alert, with areas from the Yorkshire coast down to Norfolk still warned to be wary of high water levels caused by high tides.
A flooding alert also remains in place in south-west London, affecting those who live by the Thames between Putney Bridge and Teddington Lock.
The change in weather to milder conditions in the west and north of the UK in the days to come is due to a large area of high pressure that is drawing in warmer air from the Atlantic.
The milder temperatures will come as a welcome change to many after Britain was battered by strong winds and blizzards last week as large parts of the country fell into the grip of an Arctic cold blast.
Wintry weather caused travel misery across the UK, as heavy snow prompted chaos Heathrow Airport was forced to cancel eighty flights, while the coastal town Jaywick in Essex was evacuated over flooding fears.
