He said: “Along with the dry and sunny weather, southern areas of the UK will see temperatures rise due to a combination of high pressure and warm air from the continent.
“On Sunday temperatures across central and southern England will reach into the low to mid 20’s Celsius and it’ll turn warmer still as we start the new week, with temperatures possibly reaching around 29 or 30 Celsius in the south east early next week.”
By midday today a majority of the south of England and Wales will see bright sunshine and balmy temperatures. Today is expected to bring highs of 24C (75.2F) in London and Norwich by 4pm.
