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.

On Friday it is a case of rinse and repeat. The whole of the UK should be dry and in the the south temperatures could reach 35C (95F).
Saturday brings more of the same. Temperatures could reach an extremely hot 36C (97F).
