Parts of the south of England, meanwhile, are expected to reach mid 30sC by the end of the week.
But despite recent temperature soars, forecasters say they don’t expect recent records to be broken.
Met Office chief forecaster Steve Willington said: “We could see parts of the UK entering heatwave conditions if the above-average temperatures last for three days or more.
“But these values are likely to be well below the record-breaking temperatures we saw in mid-July.”

Rebekah Sherwin, deputy chief meteorologist with the Met Office, said: “The weather pattern bringing next week’s hot spell is different to the one responsible for last month’s record-breaking temperatures which saw already hot air being drawn up from southern Europe adding to our own home-grown heat.
“This time, that is much less likely; instead, temperatures will build steadily within the lingering area of high pressure.
“There is some uncertainty about next week’s temperatures, although in early August sunshine in the UK doesn’t have the heating potential of mid-July as the sun is lower in the sky and the hours of daylight are marginally shorter.

“Both of these factors suggest that we’re very unlikely to see temperatures peak much above low to mid 30s. However, this would still be a hot spell of weather.”
Although it’s too early to say how long the hot spell will last, there are indications of a return to more changeable conditions from about mid-August
