Saturday and Sunday are also set to be dry and hot, with temperatures in the east remaining in the low thirties. There is a further risk of thunderstorms by Monday, with the weather staying warm.

The Met Office’s chief meteorologist, Dan Suri, said: “Although much of the UK can expect a spell of warm and sunny weather lasting into early next week, it’s going to turn very hot for parts of England and Wales with temperatures widely reaching above 30C on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.”
