Carol Kirkwood told BBC Breakfast viewers: “The forecast for us all today is actually not a bad one, it’s warm and it’s mostly dry, but there is the chance of some showers.”

Western Scotland reached an astonishing 33 degrees Celsius last week, making it the highest temperature ever recorded in Scotland.

Now, forecasters expect to see similar figures across the UK as the heatwave continues to bring sweltering air.

There will be plenty of dry and sunny weather this week, although, there is going to be some changes to the current weather pattern.

Despite a prominent area of high pressure responsible for the warm conditions remaining firm there is a chance some Britons will wake up to cooler air.

This is a result of the wind moving in a clockwise direction which could drive in a bit more cloud along the North Sea facing coasts and knock the temperatures.

Best of the sunshine in sheltered western areas where it will be mostly dry and warm.

Temperatures to gradually increase as the day progresses, with the highest values in the west of the country.

Slightly fresher in the north of the UK where figures will range between 18 and 20 degrees Celsius; elsewhere 25 to 27 degrees.

Wimbledon fans have been urged to be wary of the heat as it is going to be another scorcher today as well as on Wednesday and Thursday.

Forecasters predict it to hit 28 degrees Celsius this afternoon before reaching 29 degrees on Thursday.

Cloudier tomorrow as a weather front pushes into the far north, also risk of showers across southern England.

Highs of around 26 or 27 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, but once again a little colder along the east coast.

Carol said: “Tomorrow we start off with a bit more cloud around and we could see the odd shower across western Scotland and into the south-west, but we do think Wimbledon should stay dry.”

Thursday and Friday to keep the dry and settled weather and with the wind direction starting to change it will feel a lot hotter.

As temperatures draw closer to 40 degrees Celsius, bookmaker Ladbrokes have slashed odds on this month reaching 35 degrees Celsius.

The bookies now make it just a 4/6 chance that 35C is hit anywhere in the UK over the coming days as Brits continue to bask in the sun.

Ladbrokes spokesperson, Alex Apati said: “Things will only get hotter in the UK over the next week or so, if our latest odds are anything to go by.”
