Greg Dewhurst, Met Office forecaster, stated that high pressure will dominate and there will be lots of sun, especially in England, Wales, and Scotland. The weather in Scotland and Northern Ireland will occasionally be cloudy with dense clouds coming from the northwest, which could lead to some rain.

“But it will be dry and sunny for most people, well into high 20s in the morning. Central, southern, and eastern England could see maximum temperatures of 33C. Tomorrow could be the hottest day in the year, possibly even surpassing the record.

“It will also remain very warm overnight into Tuesday. In cities it will stay in the mid 20s. Many may feel uncomfortable at night.”

Dewhurst said that Tuesday will be a day of showers in the UK’s north, with slightly cooler temperatures at 19C to 25C. The south will see sunny spells and temperatures of 27C-33C.

“At this time we have a pleasant dry heat. But next weekend, the dew point is expected to rise. It will then become extremely hot and sticky. High humidity will ensure that temperatures don’t fall quickly at night.

Simon King, BBC Weather Presenter tweeted that: “Some of our weather models still come up with temperatures in mid-high 30’s Sunday and Monday.”

Although it is still a long way to go, the weather has been so consistent that we cannot ignore. There is a’summer,’ then there is a ‘extreme heat.
