Meteorologist, Aidan McGivern said, “31C, 32C wouldn’t be out of the question as well,” as it “will be even hotter on Sunday.”
Will Lang, head of civil contingencies at the Met Office, added, “Across most parts of the UK we’re expecting to see temperatures building, reaching heatwave thresholds across the majority of England over the weekend.
“High temperatures will remain a feature of the forecast until Tuesday, when fresher conditions arrive curtailing heatwave levels.”
