Loving the hot weather? It's about to get even warmer

London's hot spell is set to continue this week. It will be largely dry, warm and sunny with temperatures hovering in the low to mid 20s, several degrees warmer than the May average.

The balmy conditions have swept in on a high pressure system, dragging in hot air from the continent, according to the Met Office.

Temperatures in the low to mid 20s should continue for this week, with quite widespread warmth across the country.

But an easterly wind will make it feel a bit cooler across the North Sea coast as we move on. UV levels are generally high across the UK as well, so people should make sure they're protected from the sun.
