Forecasters have said that England should now prepare for it’s “first properly hot summer’s day” as temperatures are expected to hit the high 30s in some parts of the country.
The mercury will continue to rise this week as “hot air arrives from the continent,” the Met Office said on Monday.
The Met Office’s Steven Keates said, “There’s not been much in the way of exceptionally warm days or hot days yet this year, but that is set to change.
“We’re set to see probably a brief spell of hot weather at the end of this coming week.”
Keates added that south east England could see temperatures as high as 32C on Friday, “It could possibly be a little hotter than that… mid-thirties are possible.
“We should beat that comfortably on Friday and potentially exceed it, or get very close to it, on Wednesday and Thursday as well.”
