Having seen mixed weather conditions since the start of the 2012 Games, London will enjoy a breather as temperatures rise to 28C in time for the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday.
According to weather forecasters, the London weather is expected to improve by Thursday with temperatures rising up in time for the final day of the Olympics. They added that there is only 20 percent chance of rain on Sunday.
According to Telegraph, Damian Boyd, Met Office spokesman, said, "The unsettled conditions are expected to improve towards the weekend with temperatures rising up.”
"It's changeable at the moment with showers but moving away from the west to the east. We're expecting some high pressure to move into the south of the country and brighter weather to prevail,” he added. “It will just be a short interlude of better weather and then back to the typical British summer."
Britain witnessed varied weather conditions the past week after temperatures peaked at 31C before the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics. In London, competitors in the women's marathon had to suffer a "Biblical storm” sunshine and showers swept the rest of the country.
Forecasters have said the weather is likely to improve by Thursday and temperatures expected to reach the low 80s Fahrenheit/high 20s Celsius with a top temperature of 82F (28C)., meteorologist at the Weather Channel, said, "There is a 30 percent chance of temperatures reaching 82F (28C) in the capital and we expect a fine evening in London with just a 20 percent chance of a shower for the Olympic closing ceremony."
Meanwhile, West Midlands Police issued security advice after the forecast to warn households against burglaries. Reportedly, the last spell of warm weather in the country led to a rise in break-ins by opportunists.
Chief Inspector Darren Walsh said in a statement, "There is a temptation to leave windows and doors open during spells of hot weather. But there are opportunist thieves who'll look to take advantage of home security lapses and they only need a matter of seconds to sneak in through open windows or doors."
However, the hotter weather conditions are not due to last with heavy showers predicted to return after the weekend. According to forecasters, the rain returning to Britain is likely to be wild and heavy with thunder bringing humid conditions for next week. Nonetheless, the Olympics closing ceremony possibly will avoid a downpour.
