Hottest spell of 2017 so far

Something of a heatwave for us - hotting up with high 32C or 33C possible in places this afternoon. Feeling cooler and more comfortable around the coasts with the sea breeze. Just the outside chance of a downpour developing through the southeast - triggered by the heat. Cloud building before melting away again to leave a fine, sunny evening.

Away from the north, feeling warm and muggy tonight and an uncomfortable nights sleep with temperatures not sliding much below 20C or so in places.
