WARM weather is set to return this week – and temperatures could reach the low 20s.

According to the Met Office, temperatures are set to peak at 22C on Wednesday in Southampton with UV levels expected to be high throughout the week and very high on Friday.

Southampton is set to see temperatures between 20C and 22C this week with lots of sunshine in the forecast.

The Met Office said the warmer weather will develop as a result of the jetstream which will cause high pressure to build and temperatures to rise in the south.
