Temperatures rising again this week to hot in the south
Heating up through the week as high pressure dominates the weather over the British Isles. It is going to be mostly dry too, although some light rain may brush northern coasts of Scotland from time to time. Perhaps more cloud on to eastern coasts later in the week which will keep temperatures lower here.
