How long will the warm weather last?

High pressure will dominate the UK over the coming days, bringing many a prolonged warm spell.

As the Azores High extends over the UK throughout this weekend, there will be little change to the weather which will allow temperatures to increase day on day. This will also lead to prolonged sunshine for much of the UK, away from the far northwest where it’ll be cooler and cloudier.

The highest temperatures are expected in southern and central England and Wales, although temperatures across the vast majority of the UK will be above average through this week and into early next week.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist David Oliver said: “We’re at the start of a stretch of warm weather for much of England and Wales, that could last for much of next week. In the short term, many can expect temperatures in the mid to high 20s Celsius over the weekend, and then in the low 30s Celsius during the start of next week. Much of next week will remain warm for the time of year as well as dry and sunny.”
