Brits can look forward to sweltering heat with highs of 25C over the weekend, but there are also warnings of thunderstorms.

After Wednesday, which was a rainy day for large parts of the country, the showers will gradually subside over the next few days, giving way to a high-pressure system coming from North Africa.

The highest temperatures over the next few days will be in the south, where they will hit 20C today and a degree or two more on Friday, before peaking at 25C over the weekend.

BBC weather forecaster Nick Miller says it will rain in many parts of the country today but not as much as on Wednesday.

“Rain hit some of the driest southern areas of Britain on Wednesday, it wasn’t very much but it was more than it had been for quite some time,” he said.

“That system is now out of the way and some of the southern areas are having a mainly dry day on Thursday while there will be more rain in northern areas near the weather front, particularly across Scotland and particularly the west.

“There will be plenty of dry weather to get the day off to a cooler start with temperatures fairly well into the single digits, slightly lower in some rural locations but first off there will be plenty of sunshine and parts will see clouds increasing, but not everywhere rain will come from this cloud.

“There will be a few morning showers in Northern Ireland which will continue into the afternoon. North West Scotland is getting wetter further into the western parts of Scotland. You’ll see some rain later in the day, with some pushing further east in the afternoon.

“The odd shower for Wales and South West England and across Wales and England more clouds in the afternoon compared to morning and a warmer day in the east and south east of the country where it remains dry compared to Wednesday with some sunshine with some rain.”

The warm weather is expected to last until next week


Heading into the weekend, the high pressure system will be responsible for mostly dry weather and temperatures around 20C, but there’s also a thunderstorm warning.

Mr Miller continued: “It will be comfortably warm, especially if you see some sunshine, high pressure is close by but that’s not the whole story.

“Later Saturday Saturday night first thing Sunday there will be some showers some thunderstorms moving up from the south into parts of England and Wales some of which will come back Sunday night and into Monday morning.”
