Unsettled weather over the Bank Holiday weekend has left many parts of the UK with heavy rain and even flood alerts.
But forecasters said September could give us something to be cheerful about before autumn sets in.
An area of high pressure is currently sitting out over the Atlantic, but is expected to move into the south of the UK by the end of the week.
That will force the low pressure currently causing wet and windy conditions to move away and the country should see temperatures rise as a result, at least for the first week of the month.
Sky Weather Presenter Jo Wheeler said: "There's no doubt the end of August is looking pretty dismal with a complex low system over the country now - and more unsettled weather to come this week.
"But there are good signs that high pressure will start to build over southern parts this coming weekend.
"That would bring some more settled, and hopefully sunny conditions to much of England and Wales.
"By Monday, we should be pulling in some warmth as well, which may have us a spell of weather, however brief, that looks a lot like summer as we know it."
Summer has again been a damp squib in the UK, with rainfall figures likely to be among the top five wettest on record.
This weekend saw the cancellation of Premier League football between Sunderland and Reading and the final day of the Creamfields festival in Warrington was cancelled after heavy rain left the site as a muddy swamp.
