Temperatures are set to soar from the end of this week and into the weekend, with one forecaster suggesting temperatures could reach a scorching 33C by the end of next week. The Met Office credits the change in conditions to an area of high pressure, with settled, dry and sunny weather set to sweep across much of the country.
The Weather Outlook has shared to Twitter several charts spanning Saturday, July 17 to Wednesday, July 21.
The charts, which represent temperature thickness and air density, show the UK turn a deep red – indicating a rise in temperatures.
All of the charts show a value of 528 decameters, which indicates tropical air and brings very warm or heatwave conditions.
The caption read: “Wonder if we could reach 33C or thereabout n/week if ECM12z is correct.”
Separate temperature charts by Netweather show the mercury is set to climb from the end of this week, with highs of 26C forecast on Saturday.
The chart, valid for 6pm on July 17, shows much of the UK turn a dark red as the mercury rises to the mid-20s.
Sunday will see temperatures soar even further, with 29 forecast in the capital by late afternoon.
The rest of the UK will see warm weather, with highs of 28C forecast across much of England.
Wales, Northern Ireland and parts of eastern Scotland can also expect temperatures to rise to the mid-20s.

From Monday, July 19, they said: “The early part of this week will be dominated by high pressure, which will bring dry and sunny weather to the majority of the country.”
They added: “It is expected to be sunnier than average almost everywhere, and most parts of the UK will also be drier than average, but with potential for near average rainfall in Northern Ireland.”
The Met Office said the end of this week will be characterised by “plenty of sunshine” and warm temperatures inland.
From the weekend, they said: “This period will continue to be influenced by an area of high pressure as it moves slowly across the UK and Ireland.
“This should bring in a lot of fine and dry weather meaning long sunny spells, variable cloud and light winds should become the general trend for most, though at times some fresher and cloudier conditions may be seen along the North Sea coasts.
“Temperatures also likely to be above normal for most, and possibly becoming hot at times in the south.”
