It will be another scorcher of a day for Britons as the UK is set to bathe in 27C of heat on Wednesday as the heatwave shows no sign of slowing down. But there will be some short thunderstorms and brief showers in the South West and the Channel Islands as a weather front pushes through the region. BBC Weather meteorologist Carole Kirkwood said Wednesday will be the hottest day of the week but also warned of high UV levels across the country as the sun shines.

Ms Kirkwood said: “The forecast for today is another sunny one and also another warm one.

“There are some thunderstorms in the forecast as well already we are seeing some showers coming up across the southwest and the Channel Islands.

“Spreading northwards, getting into South Wales, eventually the midlands and the tail end could also clip the South East of England. 

“A lot of low cloud mist and mug coming in from the North Sea, shrouding the east coast of Scotland the northeast coast of England.”

She added: “But for the rest of us we are looking at sunshine.

“Locally in the southeast 27C, possibly a bit more than that.”

The BBC Weather presenter also warned Brits of high UV levels across the UK.

Wednesday will see top temperatures of 27 degrees in London, 26 in Liverpool, 25 in Birmingham, 23 in Glasgow and 21 in Belfast.

The weather forecaster added: “Overnight our weather front will continue to drift northwards, losing some of its intensity in doing so and it is going to be a cloudy night.”

But is not going to be a cold night on Wednesday evening.

Ms Kirkwood warned: “It will be a cloudy start to the day tomorrow with that cloud breaking up allowing some sunny spells to develop.

“The front crossing Scotland out of northern England will turn weaker and eventually just be a band of cloud and some sunny spells developing.”
