These temperatures are some 5 C higher than average for the time of year and prompted the met office to issue an extreme high temperature warning effective from 2 pm to 430 pm.

Over the weekend, the weather will be mainly fine. Temperatures will drop noticeably on Saturday, remaining above average for the time of year, edging down further on Sunday to close to average for the time of year.
