Warm conditions are expected to stay on through Friday. Ms Kirkwood also warned pollen levels will be high on Tuesday in Wales and southern England, but “either moderate and low for the rest of the UK”. She added that an “odd rumble of thunder to be heard on Wednesday afternoon in southeastern parts of England and eastern Scotland, but “sunny intervals and highs up to 19C.”

Speaking at BBC Breakfast, Ms Kirkwood said: “On Thursday, high pressure is building from the southwest.

“There will be a few weather fronts toppling over the top of it, but we are dragging in this mild air across the whole of the UK.

“The highest temperatures will be in the south, but temperatures generally will be higher than they have been across the country.

“A lot of dry and sunny weather to start with in England, and Wales a bit more client developing through Thursday afternoon.

“We have got our weather fronts toppling across the top of that bringing in some rain at times across parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“Temperatures 10C in Lerwick to 21C in the southeast, possibly 22C if we hang on to the sunshine before that cloud builds in.

“As we move on into Friday, we have got various weather fronts slipping southwards, taking the cloud into rain with them.”

Ms Kirkwood continued: “In between, there will be some sunshine, but the wind changing to more often northwesterly so something a bit fresher coming in across the northern half of Scotland.

“As we push further south across the rest of the country, we are still looking at some warm conditions as temperatures up to 20C degrees in London”.

Referring to today’s weather forecast, she warned: “Today there is a lot of cloud around.

“Anywhere from the Midlands northwards you can see some patchy rain or indeed some drizzle coming out of that cloud.

“Throughout the day mist and fog will tend to lift, but as the sun comes out across Wales and the southwest parts of Northern Ireland that will spark off some showers and some of those could be heavy and also thundery temperatures.
