Parts of the country to potentially feel the heat again in Met Office forecast
On Tuesday, July 19, the United Kingdom recorded the hottest day ever with temperatures reaching a sweltering 40°C.
Following the extreme heat, people across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have enjoyed a few days of cooler temperatures, heavy rain and even thunderstorms.
This break from the scorching weather, which many people have been thankful for, isn't expected to last very long, however, as the heatwave temperatures are set to return over Saturday and Sunday.
The Met Office's Alex Deakin said: "The really hot air drifts away, but some very warm weather never too far away."
He explained, however, that we will not be looking at "anything as extreme" as Tuesday's weather.
He went on: "Temperatures could tick back up to the high 20s, possibly 30s across the South East on Sunday."
The meteorologist says that while areas of the south east will be sunny and warm over the weekend, the weather will be much cooler in the north.
Following Saturday and Sunday, temperatures across most of the United Kingdom will drop again as we experience "cooler and fresher" days.
Thanks goodness for that!
