Hot and humid air from the Mediterranean is moving north across much of western Europe and the UK during the course of this week sending temperatures soaring.

The hot and sunny weather is set to last until Friday and after that it could cool off somewhat but still remain pleasantly warm.

It won’t all be plain sailing this week, though. Although it will be mostly fine there could be some isolated thundery downpours in the middle part of the week.
