Weather forecasters have said that another spell of warm weather is imminent, with temperatures rising up to a scorching 29C on Sunday (July 31).

Cloud cover will give the illusion of another grey day early on Friday (July 29), but the sun is set to break through over most parts of the UK as the day progresses, bringing balmy temperatures in many areas.

The Met Office has said that occasional showers may break up the summery weather and warned that the southern areas of the UK will enjoy the best of the sunshine.

Saturday may see rain in the morning, but again it will soon clear away and temperatures may exceed those of Friday and ramp up even further on Sunday, bringing the record-setting month of July to a sweltering end.

Met Office forecaster Clare Nasir said that most places across the UK will be "dry and warm" over the coming days.

"Into the weekend it warms up further across more southern and eastern areas whereas to the north and west fresher with outbreaks of rain," she said.

Looking at today, it is expected to be fine for most of the country with temperatures in the 20Cs.

"Elsewhere a few showers likely, most places dry and we will see a mix of cloud as well as sun, so a fine afternoon, a bright one with some sunshine coming through allowing temperatures to rise very nicely.

"Feeling warm in that sunshine, a pleasant afternoon, temperatures further south 20-22C, 24C for southern parts of Wales, 25C for London and the home counties."

On Saturday, rain moving east, will become light and patchier with many southeastern parts dry with sunny intervals.

A few showers will follow across the north, with wery warm and humid temperatures set for the south and east.

Looking into next week and rain will mainly affect northern and central parts of the country, with the south, especially the southeast, staying mainly dry.
