Met Office forecaster Bonnie Diamond said: “It’s going to be a week of wall to wall sunshine for much of the country, very little rainfall.
“Temperatures are warming up day on day.
“Thursday we could see highs of low C and reaching C on Thursday and possibly Friday.
“I wouldn’t rule out the likes of Greater London areas and southern regions even reaching C.
Asked whether this week could see the hottest day of the year, she said: “Although 150 C might be a bit of a push – it’s not impossible with light winds and sun-traps.
“Likely Friday is going to be a similarly warm day but as we head towards the weekend, we are likely to lose the southwesterly wind and a return to less warm temperatures.”
