She said: “Yesterday we had highs widely in the high 20s.
“Today the highest temperatures are likely to be in Northern Ireland and also Scotland where we could again hit 30 degrees Celsius.”
The warmest conditions are expected in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Forecasters are confident both Scotland and Northern Ireland will hit the 30 degrees mark on Wednesday.
Much like yesterday, an area of high pressure is dictating the weather across the UK as well as Scandinavia, western Europe and Iberia.
This morning there is very little cloud around, although southern and eastern counties will feel a slight breeze in the early hours of the day.
Some patchy mist and fog also in the east, but it should clear quickly to leave behind sunshine and bright skies.
What’s more coastal counties such as Aberdeen, Middlesborough, Hull and Skegness are going to see a drop in temperature.
In Norwich it may only peak in the low 20s, meanwhile, across western parts of the UK it could reach 30 degrees Celsius.
Tonight it will be dry across all areas with lots of clear skies in western sections of the country, but mist and low cloud will move into eastern and central areas overnight.
Tomorrow it will be hot with temperatures in the high 20s or hitting 30 degrees Celsius in some spots, however, figures in coastal areas will be much lower.
Early there will be smog and grey cloud in some central and eastern areas, although it should clear away quite swiftly.
Friday is going to be another warm and sunny day for most, but north eastern areas are likely to have more cloud.
The weekend is expected to be glorious, despite temperatures not being as high as previous days there will still be plenty of sunshine and dry weather.
Sweltering forecasts have prompted bookmaker Ladbroke to slash odds for the second day in a row on the hottest day of the year occurring this week.
It’s now just 1/3 (from 4/6) that Britons see record temperatures for 2018 before the week is out, as the sun continues to scorch across the country.
Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said: “Any spell of warm weather often prompts bets on the hottest year of all time.
“But with the temperatures soaring once again we have now taken an unprecedented amount of bets on 2018 entering the record books.”
