The BBC Weather meteorologist predicted increasing amounts of sunshine as the temperatures begin to rise this weekend towards the high 30s this weekend. Temperatures have been predicted to reach a range between 30 to 40 degrees across the country, and there may be a new record in the UK. Matt Taylor warned Britons that the extreme heat could impact health and travel.

Mr Taylor said: “That creep up in temperatures continues into Sunday we’ll see some overnight showers.

“One or two across northern parts of the UK to begin with.

“They will ease away into the afternoon, increasing amounts of sunshine.

“By this stage, temperatures starting to get back up around 30 degrees.

“We’re expecting to see exceptional heat build across the country.
