    Much of England and Wales will see temperatures rise as we head into the weekend with plenty of sunshine.

    Warm, humid air originating from the tropical Atlantic will bring a taste of summer warmth across much of England and Wales over the coming days with the hot weather extending into next week.

    With plenty of sunshine, temperatures are expected to widely climb into the mid to high 20Cs with some central and southeastern parts of England reaching the low 30Cs, although it will be cooler near western, and some southern coasts, where sea breezes develop.

    Further north, the weather will be more changeable, with areas of cloud and rain affecting Scotland and Northern Ireland at times, although there will still be some dry, warm and sunny conditions across southern and eastern Scotland and Northern Ireland with temperatures in the low to mid 20Cs.

    Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: With high pressure building from the south west and warm air being drawn up from the Azores, the south of England will be very warm or hot this weekend and into next week. Daytime temperatures will widely be in the mid to high 20Cs with some central and southeastern parts reaching the low 30Cs. It will also feel warm and humid overnight.

    Looking ahead to next week, its likely that the very warm weather will continue across southern parts of the UK, although it could turn more unsettled later in the week with a risk of some thundery downpours.

    Although fine, sunny weather is welcomed by most, the clear skies mean that UV levels will be high over the coming days and so people should take care when outside enjoying the warm weather, especially between 11am and 3pm. Pollen levels are also high or very high across England and Wales with lower levels in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    The Met Office maintains the UKs official weather statistics which show that its not unusual to see temperatures in excess of 30C in June we can expect to see at least one day where a temperature of over 30C is recorded in three years out of ten.

    The last time we saw temperatures exceed 30 degrees in June was 30th June 2015 when temperatures reached 30.5 at Northolt, London during the afternoon of that day. However, standard climate observations record maximum temperatures over a 24 hour period from 0900 GMT to 0900 GMT and the highest temperature reached during the standard climatological day was 32.5 degrees at Heathrow just before 0900 on 1st July at the start of what became a record breaking hot July day.

    I was expecting an announcement that the beaches would be closed to vehicles like they usually are at the first sniff of decent weather.

    I like to stay at home when the weather gets warm.. Traffic jams, crowds of sweaty people and flies just don't appeal.
