It will stay hot and sunny with the risk of thunderstorms late Friday, before fresher and cooler weather arrives through the weekend.
Wednesday was the hottest day of the year so far as temperatures climbed to 32.6 Celsius at Heathrow.
The Met Office has issued several thunderstorm warnings for large parts of the UK this week. Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Steve Willington, said: “Although many areas will enjoy dry and sunny weather over the next few days, the high temperatures will trigger thunderstorms which may cause flooding and disruption in a few places.”
