The warm weather is on its way back to the West Midlands - with forecasters predicting a sunny start to September.

The cold, wet conditions of the last few weeks are to give way to a settled spell bringing back memories of the above-average temperatures of June and July.

That was replaced by cooler weather this month - but it is all set to change again next week.

Forecaster Nick Prebble said: "It's turning nice next week, certainly warmer than it's been over the last few weeks.

"From Sunday onwards it will start to settle down, with much of the UK seeing quite a lot of dry weather, due to an area of high pressure coming in, from the south west, then becoming stationary over the UK.

"It's not a completely dry picture, there may be one or two showers, but certainly nothing like the rain we've had over the past weeks."

Temperatures are set to rise in the late summer sunshine from around midweek, and they may reach as high as 74F to 77F (25C).

Mr Prebble added: "Unfortunately I don't think it is going to be too long lasting. I think temperatures will be dropping by the following weekend, though they may remain just above average, with some rain coming in.

"Hopefully this won't be the last warm spell, the weather can be nice right into November, so I wouldn't write it off yet."
