Speaking to BBC Breakfast, weather presenter Matt Taylor told viewers the UK is set for more hot weather on Wednesday as temperatures will continue to rise. But he warned there is an “outside chance” of rain for northern and central areas where cloud will roll through later in the day. Wednesday will see highs of 25 degrees in southern areas before rocketing to a sweltering 27 degrees on Friday and further as we head into the weekend.

Mr Taylor said: “After that stormy start to the week, more in the way of sunshine, more in warmth is set to come our way.

“There will some cloudier moments, it won’t be blue skies all the way.

“And it is all due to that area of high pressure down to the southwest of us at the moment, it is creeping ever closer.”

But he warned weather fronts in Northern areas of the UK will bring some patchy rain and cloud to Northern Ireland and parts of southwest Scotland.
