As we head into the new week the heatwave will arrive bringing potential high temperatures of 25-30C.

The scorching weather will be thanks to high pressure sitting above the country, allowing warmer air from Europe to send temperatures rocketing.

Wednesday should see the hottest of the weather when some areas could see the mercury reach 30C.

Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders said, “As warmer air from the continent moves towards the UK from Wednesday, temperatures will climb into the mid to high 20s quite widely, even in parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“By this stage, some places in England and Wales will very likely top 30 Celsius – it’s not unlikely somewhere could reach 32 Celsius.

“With almost wall-to-wall sunshine we’ll certainly be looking at conditions which many of us would call a heatwave.”
