Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze has said: ‘The upper-20s are possible, with even 30C not out of the question amid Indian Summer-style autumn warmth. Computer models show a big ramp-up in temperatures this weekend. There are tantalising signs of summery weather later this weekend and next week.’

Met Office forecaster Mark Wilson agreed: ‘After above-average highs around 24C, temperatures may ease although there will be lots of sunshine. Then it looks like definitely turning warmer again from Sunday with temperatures in the low and possibly mid-20s, with signals it could turn very warm. it will come from the continent, with decent sunny periods.’
