From Monday parts of the UK will see the mercury rising into the high 20s, with the possibility of temperatures exceeding 30C (86F) by Tuesday.

The warm front moving in from Europe will see the weather remain hotter than usual until Thursday, when it will give way to thunderstorms in the south.

Monday is still looking fairly cloudy, but that starts to break up in the afternoon for parts of the southern half of the UK and down to the east coast.

Tuesday will be quite sunny for England and Wales, slowly clearing towards the north. Certainly much of England and Wales is going to see areas of prolonged sunshine.
