Hottest day of the year in England and Wales with heatwave set to last

Today is likely to be the hottest day of the year so far in some parts of the UK, with soaring temperatures set to bust records set over the weekend.

Saturday was the hottest day of the year for Scotland and Northern Ireland – which recorded its highest temperature ever – while Sunday was the hottest day for England and Wales.

Met Office meteorologist Becky Mitchell said that the heat could reach 32C in parts of the Midlands, London, the south west and south east of England this afternoon.

The highest temperature recorded during the heatwave so far was 31.6C in Heathrow yesterday. Wales also experienced blistering weather, with 30.2C heat recorded in Cardiff.

The heatwave is expected to continue in coming days, the Met Office has confirmed, but drizzle in the north and showers in the south are possible. Warnings of thunderstorms in coming days have also been issued.
