Wirral will benefit from a brief spell of very warm weather on Friday.
Temperatures are expected to peak on Friday before quickly cooling down over the weekend.
There was a wet, windy and cool start to the week for many as an unseasonably deep area of low pressure crossed the UK.
In its wake much of the UK will see warm, bright, settled weather with plenty of sunshine and increasing temperatures.
Warm air is being drawn up from the continent and temperatures will reach 29C on Friday.
Temperatures are likely to top 30C across much of central, southern and eastern England on Friday, with a few places in and around London reaching as high as 34C or even 35C.
Chief Meteorologist, Andy Page, said; “The bulk of England and Wales will have dry, very warm and sunny weather to end the week with Friday likely to be the hottest day of the year so far for the UK. A few thunderstorms are possible later on Friday and then a cold front moves eastwards by Saturday, bringing a downturn in temperatures once again.”
