The heatwave is set to continue through the coming days. Temperatures continue to rise and by the weekend there is a possibility of 37C (99F) being reached. As well as hot, it is expected to remain dry in virtually the whole of the UK with only the far north west seeing significant amounts of rain. Computer models are currently suggesting cooler conditions will return early next week.

Wednesday starts with patchy outbreaks of rain in the far north west. Elsewhere it is dry.

The vast majority of the UK has another completely dry day with long sunny periods. However, in northern and western Scotland it remains cloudier and there is an ongoing risk of light rain.

Much of the UK has heatwave conditions. Temperatures range from 18C (64F) in the far north west to maximums of close to 32C (90F) in England and Wales. See the rain radar for the latest view.
