The warm spell is forecast to reach the town on Monday afternoon when any cloud will break up to reveal more sunny conditions, with highs of 25°C possible later in the day and the potential for the odd light shower according to BBC weather.

Temperatures are then expected to increase on Tuesday, rising to a balmy 28°C by around 4pm and with lows of just 14°C alongside dry conditions and plenty of sunshine.

A similar outlook is predicted for Wednesday once the early mist and fog patches clear, with highs of 28°C by mid-afternoon and a gentle breeze.

However, the good weather is not likely to stay throughout the later part of the week as, judging by the latest predictions, there is a high chance of rain on Thursday and Friday.

The BBC long range forecast for the East Midlands says: “On Wednesday, it will be a dry day with extensive sunshine throughout, and it will remain very warm for the time of year.

"Thursday will see a return to unsettled weather with widespread rain and potential thunder, but some places may hang onto warmer temperatures.

"Friday looks to be a cooler day than of late, remaining unsettled with spells of rain or showers likely for many.”

The weekend then looks to cool once again, with temperatures expected to remain below 20°C and a light cloud on both Saturday and Sunday.
