Meteorologist Dan Stroud said temperatures will remain “generally above average” but not meet “heatwave criteria”.

He said: “We’ve got high pressure sending across at the moment, which is bringing dry and settled weather and some late spring, early summer sunshine.

“We’re expecting similar conditions for the rest of the week and into next weekend and probably beyond. So an extended spell of dry and settled weather.”

Mr Stroud said May has been “very dry” and with “just slightly more than half the normal amount of rainfall we would actually expect”.
