As reported by the Mirror, forecaster Simon Partridge said: we are facing a "decent week of sunshine" from today (Monday).

He added: "We’ve got some warmer weather coming, it’s not going to be a heatwave but we could be in the mid to high 20s on Wednesday and Thursday.

"We are probably looking at 28C on Thursday and in the north they could be up to 25C.

"But typically, it’s going to cool off again into the weekend when it will be a bit more unsettled.

"As we go into mid July there’s a reasonable signal from the models that things will be above average temperature wise so it could warm up a bit more than usual as we go into July."

He added that "there’s always a potential" for more heatwaves in July.

"It does look as if mid July, which is quite a long way off and things can change, but most of the major models signal a warmer than average spell."
