Temperatures will finally return to more typical late-July levels throughout the United Kingdom on Sunday, but wet and windy weather could impact outdoor plans.

Thursday became the hottest day so far this year across the U.K. after a high of 33.9 degrees Celsius (93 degrees Fahrenheit) in Charlwood in Surrey was recorded.

As severe weather from late in the workweek dissipates, a refreshing change will bring more normal late-July weather.

High temperatures will hold near 20-22 C (near 70 F) in southeastern England for Sunday, with highs of 15-20 C (60s F) anticipated elsewhere in the U.K. Highs have not been that low in London since July 10.< br/>

However, rain and gusty winds will prevent residents from taking full advantage of the heat’s departure.

A depression is expected to bring rainy spells through Sunday, especially to Wales, England and southern Scotland. The main impact of the rain will be disruptions to outdoor plans and travel, but there can be isolated incidents of flash flooding as well.

Despite the hazards, any substantial rainfall through this weekend would be beneficial to ease the ongoing drought.

United Utilities is imposing a hosepipe ban starting on Aug. 5 for North West England.

Gusty winds can also blow over parts of the United Kingdom. The strongest winds are anticipated across England and Wales where there can be gusts of 40-50 mph (64-80 km/h). A brief period of gale-force wind is possible in coastal and exposed areas. These locations will face the highest winds and concern for sporadic power cuts.

More residents may be able to get outdoors to enjoy the more comfortable conditions early in the coming week as the rainy spells diminish to more isolated showers across the northern and western U.K.

"The upcoming cooler weather may not totally put an end to the hot weather for the U.K. this summer ," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Houk said. "There are signs that heat may attempt to make a comeback, especially over southern areas, later next week."

Temperatures in southern England look to rebound into the upper 20s C (lower 80s F) again by the first weekend of August. This would be cooler than the recent hot spell across the United Kingdom but still about 5 C (10 F) above normal.
