Summer is finally on its way, with the arrival of a 30C ‘Spanish Cloud’ on UK shores later this week.

Hot conditions and wall-to-wall sunshine will roll in from Wednesday, making parts of the country warmer than Hawaii.

Temperatures in London could hit 30C on Friday and Saturday, while the thermometer will hit 25C in Manchester and 21C in Edinburgh.

Friday is forecast to be the hottest day of the year so far, beating the 27.5C recorded at Heathrow on May 17.

But it’s not officially declared a heatwave, which the Met Office defines as three consecutive days with temperatures above 28C.

Met Office meteorologist Jonathan Vautrey said: “As we approach the end of the week, we are beginning to receive the signal for the potential for significant heat development from the south.”

As temperatures hit around 23C in Greater London on Saturday afternoon, he said there is “a lot of sunshine in the south of England which helps things feel quite warm”.

Heat was pushed into Europe from the North African desert, bringing muggy conditions to Spain and France.

The Spanish weather agency warned of “extreme” temperatures of 40C+ in some locations last week.

High pressure will cause warm air to move further north earlier this week, arriving in the UK on Wednesday.

Mr Vautrey added: “There is a signal that the heat that we are currently having over Spain – I think they are experiencing fairly high temperatures at the moment – could be moving north into the south-eastern areas of the UK, at least for the end of the week .

“So right now the model is looking to get us into the mid 20s by mid-week and then potentially into the low 30s on Friday, which would be the warmest conditions we’ve seen over the course of this year. “

It’s good news for race-goers traveling to Royal Ascot, as no rain is forecast for the annual event.

However, hay fever sufferers have been warned to prepare for a spate of sneezing attacks due to the presence of high levels of ‘heavy’ pollen.

The highest June temperature ever recorded in Britain was 35.6°C in Southampton in 1976, a year that saw a severe drought.

Unfortunately, forecasters say summer conditions are unlikely to last for UK sun-seekers.

They predict “changeable conditions” and above-average rainfall towards the end of the month.
