When will the warm weather hit?

"The warmer weather will kick in from mid-week onwards, and we could see 21C in parts of the country by Thursday,” Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said.

“High pressure building from the Continent will bring a change from the wetter, windier weather to drier, sunnier conditions,” he added.

Mr Dale notes Hurricane Sam has much to do with the warm conditions we will see this week.

"The remains of Hurricane Sam will veer towards Iceland as it moves across the Atlantic, this will mean it will miss the UK but pull warm air in from the south” and “as we are now in October, we can call this an Indian Summer,” he said.

"This could last through the week or possibly longer into the mid-month when we expect to see a return to something more usual for the time of year."

What is the forecast for Liverpool?

The sunny spells we enjoyed throughout Wednesday will give way to showers in the evening as temperatures drop to 14C over night.

Thursday will be dry but cloudy, with temperatures topping out at about 19C with gusts of wind up to 20 mph in the early morning.

The dry condition continue into Friday, with similar temperatures too. The wind will die away in the afternoon and we can expect to enjoy some sunny spells in the city.

The cold weather will start to return over the weekend with highs of 17C expected on a cloudy Saturday, dropping to 15C on Sunday.

Winds will rise again on the final day of the week, but will be offset with some sunny intervals.
