Temperatures are expected to drop next week in the southwest after this weekend’s mini heat wave, experts say.
Mercury is expected to climb to and above 18 ° C on Friday and Saturday, as Britons get a taste of the summer sun.
However, the heat could end with the week ahead, with the early parts of next week expected to see temperatures drop and clouds shift.
In Bristol, the mercury is expected to drop to around 12 ° C by Wednesday, with cloudier days becoming the norm instead of this week’s wall-to-wall sunshine.
