BBC Weather forecaster Sarah Keith-Lucas said the UK will see temperatures just shy of 30C on Friday. She went on to say temperatures will increase further going into the weekend. There will be patches of cloud for some northern parts of Scotland but for the majority of people, the weather is expected to be bright and hot.

Ms Keith Lucas said: “We are not going to see wall to wall sunshine through the course of the day.

“There is a weather front that is close to the west of the UK so that is going to bring a bit more cloud and a few spots of rain across the north west of Scotland.

“We also have a bit of early cloud across parts of East Anglia and the south east too.

“But that should burn back so long spells of sunshine today and those temperatures are going to respond nicely.”

Glasgow is most likely to see the lower temperature of 21C while Cardiff could see the highest of 27C.

She continued: “So light winds, strong sunshine and a little bit of cloud just bubbling up through the day for parts of northern England.

“It will even be a touch cooler around the coast.
