BRITS are set to bask in sunny weather for three days in a row after weeks of miserable rainy weather.
Parts of the UK will see temperatures consistently hitting 22C in the coming days, according to Met Office predictions.
After some glorious weather in June, the country has been hit with gloomy conditions as Brits have been battered by wind and rain in recent weeks.
But sunbathers descended on beaches yesterday to enjoy warm weather as conditions perked up and it may get even better today.
The Met Office is forecasting a warm run into the weekend, with many regions in the UK even expected to reach the mid 20s.
London, the Midlands and parts of the East Midlands will see the most sun today.

And forecasters are predicting a "mostly dry day" across the country with the sun already beaming down.
Met Office meteorologist Simon Partridge said: “Thursday is a mostly dry day. There could be a little bit of mist and fog around first thing, particularly across southwestern parts of England, but generally sunny spells through the day and mostly dry.
“We could get a few showers developing in the afternoon across northern parts of Wales, drifting up across north-west England. The odd rumble of thunder is possible but they are very few and far between.
"The big thing is obviously the temperatures. Temperature wise for Thursday we are looking at many parts of England, Wales and southern Scotland reaching the mid 20s."

Mr Partridge continued: “We could see highs of 27C to 28C, possibly 29C somewhere in eastern England. Midlands or East Midlands.
"Somewhere around the central parts of the UK is where you could see the highest temperature of a possible 29C.”
Meteorologists say Friday will be a day of “sunshine and showers” and temperatures will be in the low to mid 20Cs.
And while the weekend might not reach the sunny highs of today, the weather is still expected to be warm.
Forecasters also predict a "good amount of sunshine" that will easily trump the wet and windy conditions from the last few weekends.
The brighter weather follows a battering by Storm Antoni over the weekend.
It saw flooding and 78mph winds hit the UK and trees blown down, blocking 100 miles of railway between Exeter and Penzance.
Mr Partridge said: “As we go into weekend we’ll slowly see temperatures come back to high teens, low 20Cs through the weekend.
“There will be showers around but there will also be a good amount of sunshine so it’s not going to be as bad as previous weekends we have seen recently.”

This trend is set to continue towards the end of the month, capping off a wet and windy summer.
