Merseyside will see another heatwave next week as warmer air from Europe arrives.
Temperatures of 25C will warm up the region through Monday, but the hottest weather will be on Tuesday.
On Tuesday the mercury will hit a sweltering 30C with sunny spells forecast all day.
Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: “Sunday will be a little bit drier with a few showers here and there and temperatures again reaching 25C to 26C.
“On Tuesday the rain and strong winds in the North West will have eased and it will turn drier, elsewhere there should be lots of sunshine with highs of 33C or higher”
Through the rest of the week temperatures will remain at a stuffy 25C, but there could be some thundery showers on Wednesday and Thursday.
Mr Burkill added: “There’s a risk of some thundery showers developing through the rest of the week, there’s a bit of uncertainty.
“We could see some wet weather coming in from the west so things could turn a bit fresher, or the hot and sunny weather could continue.
“But it doesn’t look like temperatures will get much hotter than 34C.”
He added: “The hot weather could last through much of the next week and into next weekend or it could break down much earlier – there’s a lot to play for.”
