There is also the potential for the heat triggering an isolated thunderstorm in England and Wales. Temperatures very warm or hot, widely 22C to 28C, perhaps nearing 30C in urban areas of southern England. Cooler around the coasts due to sea breezes.
Thursday sees little change and the potential for another very warm or hot day. It will be hot in southern areas of the country with certainly a risk of temperatures topping 30C.

At the moment high pressure is set to remain the dominant feature across many areas, again continuing the fine weather across many areas. The exception to this could be northern areas of Scotland where it could still be cooler and cloudier. Overall though much of the UK should be mainly dry and settled by with some bright or sunny spells. Temperatures warm or perhaps very warm for most, especially across England and Wales.

Still very warm, perhaps locally hot too. Highs 19C to 26C.
