Britons will enjoy nine dry, sunny days with maximum temperatures of at least 20C and little to no chance of showers. The balmy weather is set to last into the weekend and most of next week, with weather charts turning red. WXCharts has forecast high temperatures for over a week.

Their charts showed on Sunday, temperatures will peak at 27C in London and 26C in Runcorn, Cheshire.

Northerners will see the mercury soar as temperatures top 23C in Newcastle and 24C in Hull.

The south east of England will hover between 19C and 21C while people in Wales will experience temperatures ranging from 18C to 25C.

Sunday’s predicted heat turned most of Scotland, England and Wales red on a weather anomaly chart from WX Charts, which compares temperatures to how hot it usually is.

In the lead up to the peak on Sunday, Britons will enjoy temperatures hovering in the mid-20s.

In London, it will be 25C on Wednesday, with BBC Weather saying “high pressure will continue to dominate the weather today”.

They said: “The sunshine will continue this afternoon, with only the odd patch of cloud drifting over. Dry and warm with light winds.”

And Wednesday evening is set to bring “plenty of late sunshine”.

On Thursday, Londoners are on track for a “dry and warm day with light winds” as patchy cloud in the morning will break up “to give plenty of sunshine”.

Temperatures will be around 23C in the capital.

MeteoGroup UK said on Thursday regions would experience “dry and increasingly bright” conditions “with spells of sunshine, mainly in the afternoon”.

They predicted “a dry end to the day with some late spells of sunshine” and “very warm and humid with a light to moderate south-westerly wind”.

As the week draws to a close on Friday, temperatures in London will be 24C and 22C in Leeds.

Meteorologists at the Met Office said much of the UK is heading towards a hot weekend.

They said: “For many inland areas largely sunny, dry and very warm.

“It will be somewhat cooler in the far north, which will see more cloud and perhaps some rainfall at times.”

From the middle of next week there will be a shift in the weather pattern which will bring a “risk of showers in the south”.

And these could “culminate in a thundery breakdown,” warned the Met Office.

They added: “Temperatures are expected to be very warm under the high, perhaps hot for a time in the south east, but look to remain average in the far north.

“Into the latter half of this period, there are signs that less settled conditions could push in from the north west to other parts of the country.”

They said temperatures would begin to drop slightly towards the end of next week.

As the heatwave took hold this week sun-starved Britons were pictured baking on beaches and public parks.

The extended sunny spell is the result of high pressure from the Azores.
