Wednesday will see temperatures push even higher than recent days across some parts of the UK but the Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning to confuse matters.

The Met Office and BBC Weather are forecasting London and the south east to see the mercury rise to 28C after the highest temperature recorded in the UK on Tuesday was Cardiff at 26.1C.

As well as Tuesday being the hottest day of the year so far in 2021, it was also the first official meteorological day of the summer.

Much of the UK will join the capital's soaring temperatures with Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Oxford all seeing highs in the mid-20s.

Due to the heat there will be some breakouts of rain and the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms across parts of southwest England and southwest Wales on Wednesday morning.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: "Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: “The thunderstorms could bring lots of lightning, some hail, as well as some heavy rain, and with the half term there is an increased number of tourists in this area.

“The thunderstorms do then push north-eastwards into the Midlands and across more of Wales, but they also ease and break up, so these places will see some showers but they won’t be as intense.”

“The thunderstorm warning from 5am to 11am warns that there could be some short-term loss of power and other services, while delays to train services and poor road conditions are possible.”

In a post on the Met Office Twitter page it said: "Another very warm and sunny day for many on Wednesday Sun with rays though some thundery showers spreading from the southwest."

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Summer is coming and the sun is shining down on us now.

"We have slashed the odds significantly on this June going on to become the warmest we have ever had.

“We could see a number of weather records tumble if the temperatures continue to soar as we exit spring and head into summer.”
