Brits will be basking in a sweltering 30 degrees plus after hump day as a high pressure front is set to bring summery weather.

The start of the week will be fine and dry with sunny spells for many in England and Wales.

However, a series of weak fronts will push into Scotland and Northern Ireland, bringing cloudier weather here with a chance of some light rain, especially across the northwest.

But after Wednesday, people in some parts can expect to be basking in temperatures as high as 33 degrees.

Cloud, rain and breezy conditions will continue across the northwest, but it will become increasingly warm in the south as high pressure builds.

This will bring settled conditions allowing temperatures to build day-on-day and for it to become warm, or even hot, for a time by Friday.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Dan Rudman, said: “Temperatures will rise through the week, becoming well above-average by day by Friday when many parts of the southern half of the UK are likely to reach 30C or even 33C in isolated spots.”

“This is the first spell of hot weather this year and it is still unusual for temperature to exceed these values in June. Many areas will also see some warm nights with temperatures expected to be in the mid to high teens overnight.”

The impending BBQ weather has fuelled talk of a heatwave, but the Met Office have moved to pour cold water on these rumours.

A UK heatwave threshold is met when a location records a period of at least three consecutive days with daily maximum temperatures meeting or exceeding the heatwave temperature threshold. The threshold varies by UK county.

Although some parts of England may perhaps meet these heatwave criteria, it looks like this spell of warm weather will be relatively short-lived.

Milder conditions look likely to return later in the weekend with temperatures trending back to around average for June as cooler air pushes across the country from the northwest.
