Exeter's Met Office says temperatures could hit 32°C
After a mostly cold and wet June, temperatures are to to soar this week.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Dan Suri, said: “It’s going to get hot and humid for some from Wednesday, with the highest temperatures expected across southern and western parts of the UK. Not everywhere will see the high temperatures, however, as an easterly breeze will keep North Sea coasts much cooler.
“By the time we get to Saturday, however, North Sea coasts will join much of the rest of eastern UK in seeing temperatures of 27 to 32 Celsius.”
Dan continued: “Heatwave thresholds will therefore be met across some parts of the UK later this week and into the weekend.”
