UK heatwave MAP: Britain to melt in 37C Continental plume this week – Europe hits 45.7C

The Met Office has predicted Friday or Saturday might be even hotter than last week, according to the Times. Last week, Britain saw the hottest day of the year and the third hottest since the record began in 1865 with the mercury reaching 37.8C.

Most of the country is set to have temperatures around the high twenties, but London and the southeastern region are expecting scorching temperatures of 35C to 37C.

The Met Office warned that Britain could pass the threshold for a heatwave, which entails three days of temperatures over 25C across most of the nation and 28C in London.

Hot air is sweeping north from France, where a fire broke out in Chiberta forest park, in the southwest of the country.

Velez-Malaga in Spain recorded 45.7C, for now the highest temperature in the continent this year.

In large regions of Italy thermometers recorded temperatures above 40C.

On BBC Breakfast, BBC meteorologist Matt Taylor said: “In the second half of the week, temperatures are set to climb across the country once again.

“Once we hit Friday and Saturday, we could be in the very hot category once more, especially across the eastern half of the country.

“Today it will be warm when the sun’s out, cooler when the cloud is around.
