The UK is set to bask in glorious conditions as temperatures are set to rocket to 31C this weekend.
Temperatures this week have dipped but a Met Office chart has predicted conditions to warm up as it nears towards the weekend.
Met Office tweeted: “Temperatures are on the rise as we head into the weekend, reaching around 31C by Sunday.”
Temperatures on the Met Office chart gradually increase into Saturday before reaching highs of 31C in the southeast of the country on Sunday.
Experts have claimed warm conditions could continue to bake the country throughout the summer.
Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said: “We expect another period of hot to very hot weather to develop after some changes in the weather this week in terms of temperature reductions and some much needed rainfall.
“The persistent hot weather shows no sign of ending with further heatwave conditions expected later this month leading into what is likely to be a bumper hot August.
“At this stage, it is looking more likely that this summer will continue along this theme and there is no reason why we shouldn’t see further records fall before the end of the season.”
BBC weather has forecast “sunny and dry” conditions for parts of the UK from Saturday to Monday.
A statement on the BBC weather website reads: “North-west Scotland will have some rain on Saturday, elsewhere it will be mainly fine but the odd shower is possible in the east.
“By Sunday a weak front will move into western Scotland bringing increased clouds and some rain, but only for the north-west.
“Elsewhere will be mostly sunny and dry. Into next week the weak front will move into the UK bringing the odd shower.”
Before thermometers rocket again parts of the country are expecting thunderstorms to crash into Britain on Friday.
The Met Office yellow weather warning says the stormy weather will hit from 11am until 8pm on Friday.
The Met Office warning states: “Heavy showers, which will most likely become thundery in places, are expected to develop quite widely across parts of England and Wales later Friday morning and through the afternoon.
“Some of the showers are likely to become focused into slow-moving bands, particularly over southwest England, with some locations receiving around 20mm in an hour.
“As is the nature of showers, however, many places within the warning area will miss them altogether, and have a dry day.”
Leading bookmaker Coral is offering 1-2 in this summer turning out to be the hottest ever with 5-4 on this month entering the record books.
Spokesman John Hill said: “Thunderstorms are set to put the heatwave on hold over the next couple of days, however, the betting still suggests we are on course for the hottest summer on record in the UK.”
