With projected highs of 26C, the UK could see the warmest day of the year thus far.
On Tuesday, Porthmadog recorded the highest temperature in the UK so far this year at 25.1C, and analysts think there’s a slim chance the record can be broken today.
The dry weather is anticipated to last into the following week as well.
A UK high of 23.9C was recorded in Porthmadog on Saturday, and Sunday is predicted to be significantly warmer.
According to Met Office meteorologist Rachel Ayers, protected places in the west could see a high of 26C. In the warmer areas, residents can expect 24C or 25C.
She said there was a low chance of 26C being recorded, adding: “We’d be looking at that somewhere in the west, probably similar kind of areas, parts of Wales, maybe south-west England.”
Temperatures in those regions will be impacted by a breeze across the south, especially along the English Channel coasts, according to Ms. Ayers.
On Sunday, the eastern beaches will have highs of 15C or 16C, while inland regions will experience warmer highs of 18C to 20C.
