The UK is set for a scorching weather this weekend with the mercury hitting a high of 29C in London
Temperatures that have not been seen since last summer are back as Friday through to Sunday will be sunny and very warm across the UK.
Met Office spokesman Stephen Dixon said, “Friday will be largely fine and dry for much of the country.
“There is a band of cloud and light patchy rain in the far north-west of Scotland, and there’ll be some showers affecting parts of the west as well.
“There’s also clouds in the south (of England), however temperatures will remain above average for this time of year and there will be long, warm sunny spells for central and south-east areas in particular.
“You’re looking at temperatures of mid-20s across the country but in London it could be 27C on Friday.”
“It’s going to be warmest in the South but best in the South East and East Anglia. The North West will have cloud with chances of rain in Scotland and some low cloud in south-west coasts but less extensive than in previous days.
“Highs across the country in the mid-20s, 29C in London, 23C in Edinburgh, 27C in Manchester, 24C in Cardiff,” he added.
