Met Office meteorologist Jonathan Vautrey said there is a ‘lot of sunshine around to help to keep things feeling pretty warm’ in the south of England.

He added: ‘As we move into the end of the week, that’s when we are starting to pick up the signal for the potential for some significant heat to come up from the south.’

He said this was ‘still a fair way off at the moment’, so there is is still some uncertainty.

But Mr Vautrey added ‘there is a signal in that the heat we have currently got over Spain – I believe they are experiencing rather high temperatures at the moment – could edge its way northwards to south-eastern areas of the UK, at least for the end of the week’.

He explained: ‘So at the moment, the model wants to take us up to mid-20s by the middle of the week and then potentially into low 30s for Friday, which would be the warmest conditions we have seen over the course of this year so far.’

The Met Office’s highest recorded temperature for the UK this year was 27.5C at Heathrow in Hillingdon, west London, on May 17.

England and the south east is set to enjoy the ‘hottest of the weather’ because the high-pressure is not extending across the whole of the country, which will keep thing ‘cooler in northern areas’, but they ‘will probably still see a gradual increase in temperatures’, Mr Vautrey said.
