Friday may be the hottest day of the year so far despite an unseasonably blustery start to the week - but the blast of heat will be brief.

So far this month, the highest maximum temperature recorded was 28.5C on July 17 at Heathrow Airport.

The cool temperatures and wet weather have been caused by low pressure systems and weather fronts coming through, as well as “unseasonal” winds – gusts of up to 50mph were recorded on Monday.

This low has now moved away and much of the UK will now see settled conditions with gradually more sunshine and increasing temperatures through the week.

The Met Office said temperatures are expected to rise from today (Wednesday) with some parts of the country seeing temperatures creeping into the low 20s C as high pressure over Scandinavia brushes the UK.

In the far north east breezy, showery conditions will persist a little longer into Wednesday.

A separate area of low pressure out in the Atlantic will force a warm front across the northern half of the UK bringing a band of rain that will move north eastwards through the day on Thursday. The bulk of England and Wales will have a dry, warm and sunny day.

By Thursday night the low pressure will start to draw up warmer air from the south leading to a hot day on Friday, especially in the south.

Temperatures are likely to reach up to 33C in south east England, with locations in the Midlands and northern England reaching 30C and widespread high 20s C as far north as southern Scotland.

Deputy chief forecaster, Brent Walker, said “There is quite a change in the weather coming by the end of the week, with increasing sunshine and a day of hot conditions on Friday.

"It won’t persist long enough to become a heatwave as a cold front moves in on Saturday, bringing the temperatures back down to around average for the time of year.

“We’ve not seen a temperature anywhere above 30C so far or even with a three in it – that is quite unusual for July.”

The mercury is expected to rise highest in areas such as Reading, Northampton or Cambridge, though 30C temperatures may also feature as far north as the Scottish border.

That view was echoed by The Weather Outlook, which stated: "Temperatures could reach 33C (91F) in the south on Friday, however, there is a risk of thunderstorms as the heat builds.

"Central and northern regions should be dry and very warm, although rain is likely to push into Northern Ireland."

But the good weather is expected to be short-lived.

The Weather Outlook added: "During Saturday cooler air returns southeastwards and there is a chance of heavy showers or thunderstorms for a time in the east.

"Sunday brings a mix of sunny spells and showers with temperatures close to the seasonal average. More persistent periods of rain possibly push into the south west later."
