The probability of heatwave conditions in parts of England and Wales between 1200 on Sunday and 0900 on Tuesday is 60%

Very warm air is expected to spread north across parts of southeastern and eastern England during the latter part of the weekend and the start of next week. There is a lot of uncertainty on Tuesday, as to whether the warm conditions will continue, although after Tuesday, confidence is higher that cooler conditions will move in from the west.
