Heatwave conditions have gripped Wirral over the last few days with temperatures reaching over 25C in some places.

The latest weather forecasts show that the hot weather is set to continue through until Thursday.

Tuesday and Wednesday on Wirral will see temperatures rise to over 25C and Thursday could even see it touch 30C in some places.

It will make it difficult to sleep at night too as temperatures won’t dip much below 20C overnight through the week.

The south of the country have seen the mercury rise to over 30C and with the dry hot weather set to continue, this has resulted in the Met Office issuing its first ever extreme heat weather warning.

Met Office Chief Operational Meteorologist Steven Ramsdale said, “The high temperatures are going to continue through a large part of this week.

“Many areas will continue to reach heatwave thresholds but the amber extreme heat warning focusses on western areas where the most unusually high temperatures are likely to persist.  

The warm weather won’t last until the following week though, by Friday the heatwave will loose its grip giving way to cooler air.

This could see thunderstorms breakout through Saturday.

Steven added: “There’s a continuing risk of isolated thundery downpours late in the afternoons but most areas will stay dry until later in the week.

“Temperatures should begin to fall for most areas heading into the weekend, with some more unsettled conditions looking to develop.”
