Lincolnshire set to enjoy Indian summer with temperatures rising in time for weekend

Summer is set to return to Lincolnshire in time for the weekend, with temperatures of up to 20°C in the north and south of the county.

Southerly winds from the Mediterranean will arrive in Bomber County on Saturday, bringing positively balmy conditions for this time of year.

The Lincolnshire coast in particular is forecast to have a warm weekend, with temperatures in Cleethorpes and Mablethorpe hitting 20°C on Saturday.

Further inland, the Met Office is predicting that Spalding and Gainsborough will reach 20°C as well, with overnight lows of around 13°C.

The rest of the county will hardly be shivering, with Skegness, Grantham, Boston and Lincoln all reaching a very pleasant 19°C.

Sunday looks like it will be marginally cooler, although probably the brighter of the two days.

Temperatures are set to rise even more for the start of the working week, with highs of 22°C predicted in Holbeach, Spalding and Stamford on Monday.

The weather is then forecast to turn a little cooler and mixed by the end of the week, although still pretty good for the middle of October.
