Speaking to BBC Breakfast, weather presenter Tomasz Schafernaker warned temperatures are set to remain high for much of the UK as the country is gripped by yet another day of the heatwave. He explained how an area of high pressure is driving the sweltering temperatures and this has pushed its way down to southern areas of the UK overnight. He warned of hot evenings and more uncomfortable nights ahead as Brits flock to enjoy the sun ahead of Freedom Day on Monday, July 19.

Mr Schafernaker said: “We will probably hit 31C again today in the southeast of the country so it will be London that gets the hot and sunny weather.

“Not necessarily hotter [than Saturday] but it is going to stay as hot through today.

“And of course the UV levels are going to be very high as well.”

He added: “There is high pressure bringing us clear skies across the UK so lots of sunshine.”

He explained how England and Wales will see the hottest weather on Sunday compared with Saturday which saw parts of Northern Ireland rocket to a sweltering 31C.

The BBC presenter said: “The heat is being pushed by the breeze a little bit further south 

“So a hot day and a hot evening and a pretty balmy night on the way for England and Wales.

“The overnight temperatures will be around 17 degrees.”

He warned Monday will still see areas of high pressure engulfing the UK meaning cooler air has not had the chance to penetrate the weather system.

The weather presenter explained: “High pressure still across the UK, the UK is in the middle of the high pressure.

“It means that the winds are blowing around it and away from us so it feels calm across the central portion of the UK.
