Britain will enjoy 20C temperatures at the start of the week with warm air from Africa keeping the mercury above average until Halloween.

Many cities in the UK will experience bursts of sunshine, while Monday is also expected to be mild and dry.

South East Sussex and Kent will be windy and rainy at times, while northern towns will also be hit by showers.

Although there will be sporadic rain in the north for the next two weeks, conditions will be mostly stable.

A spokesperson for the Met Office told MailOnline: ‘With low pressure anchorage in the south west of the UK over the next week, winds will continue from the south easterly direction.

“This is going to work like a pump, bringing fairly warm air (for October) north from Iberia and France. During the day, maximum temperatures in some southern areas will reach 18-20 Celsius, while the average maximum temperature for mid-October is around 14 Celsius.’

Nick Finnis, Netweather forecaster, told the Daily Star: “Some computer models show 22C or 23C in the middle of the week, which brings an Indian Summer.

“An exceptionally warm plume of air from northwest Africa appears to be pumped across Europe and into Britain, with temperatures reaching 30 degrees in France and over 20 degrees in the south of Britain.”

An Indian Summer can be described as a warm and calm period of weather in the fall.

The highest October temperature ever recorded in the UK was in 2011 when temperatures soared to 29.9°C in Gravesend, Kent.

Last year October was a warm month with a typical autumnal mix of weather types with warm periods and regular showers.

According to the Met Office, average maximum temperatures were more than 1C above the long-term average.

Experts have said mild conditions will last until Halloween on October 31.

The news comes after the Met Office issued a yellow warning last month when it was predicted that the weather would cause disruption to transportation and businesses.
