People across the country are expecting what could be the hottest day of the year as temperatures are expected to reach 33C (91.4F).

Some parts of the UK will be hotter than the Maldives and Bahamas, with sunny weather continuing into the weekend.

Temperatures will soar across central, southern and eastern England on Monday afternoon as the latest heat wave continues, the Met Office said.

The current record temperature in the country for 2022 is 32.7 degrees Celsius (90.9 degrees Fahrenheit), which was recorded at Heathrow on June 17.

on sunday Scotland and Northern Ireland had their hottest days of the yearrecording 27.3C (81.1F) and 24.3C (75.7F) respectively.

Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst explained that high pressure was expected to “dominate” on Monday, particularly in England and Wales.

“It will be foggy at times in Scotland and Northern Ireland, with thick clouds coming in from the northwest, with a chance of rain at times,” he added.

“But it will be a dry and sunny day for most of us, with lows in the 20s from early morning, with central, southern and eastern parts of England possibly seeing highs of 33 degrees.

“So it’s quite possible that tomorrow will be the hottest day of the year, it will certainly be on par with the existing record, maybe even more.”

While many people will enjoy seeing the temperature rise, Mr Dewhurst warned that overnights will also be “very warm” with some cities in the low 20s.

“Thus, many may experience an uncomfortable night,” he warned.

Sky News weather producer Joanna Robinson added that the weekend could see record weather.

“At the moment, temperatures could reach the mid-thirties in the south next weekend, but there is currently a 30% chance that the UK record high temperature of 38.7C (102F) will be broken,” she said. .

“There is now a worrying 10% chance that 40C (104F) will be reached for the first time in the UK.”
