The UK could see sunny and dry weather from August 11 which may be similar to July's heatwave.

BBC Weather forecasts highs of 23C in the south of England, higher than the UK average for that time of year.

July saw parts of the UK reach 32C, as Brits flocked to beaches, parks and gardens to enjoy the warm weather.

Sadly, this gave way to rain, storms and torrential rain as Storm Evert swept through parts of the UK.

Now the Met Office has predicted the summer weather we've all been dreaming of is set to return next month.

But don't reach for the sun cream just yet, as the next two weeks are expected to bring "unsettled, changeable" weather, with a mixture of sunny spells and showers.

From August 4 to August 13, scattered showers across Britain may lead to thunderstorms and torrential downpours for some.

The forecaster has indicated signs of more settled conditions from the middle of next month as higher pressure develops.

Temperatures are expected to be below average or on average (around 17C) during this time, a far cry from July's sun-drenched days which reached above 30C.

Over the next two weeks, winds are expected to remain breezy, with temperatures expected to be slightly above average in northern areas.

According to weather forecasters, the grim weather is expected to ease by August 11 and summer barbeques should be safe to resume.

From mid-august, Brits can hopefully swap their wellies for sandals, as there are current signals of a "drier and warmer than average period" from the middle of August.

Unfortunately, people in the northwest may continue to see occasional spells of more unsettled weather, and "short-lived thundery spells" for those in the southeast of the country.

By the end of August, it should feel a bit more like the boiling summer the UK enjoyed last year, with a chance of "very warm conditions" in the south.
