BBC Weather’s Carol Kirkwood forecast more warm conditions as the humidity climbs. A weather front on Thursday night will bring fresher conditions ahead of the weekend. Ms Kirkwood said: “Over the next few days what you will notice is the heat will continue to build especially through the weekend where we should hit 28C or 29C somewhere in the southeast but for the whole of the UK it will be much warmer than it has been.
“Not much rain in the forecast but we have some fronts flirting with us in the northwest, that will eventually introduce some rain but will eventually sink southwards.
“We’ve got some mist and fog first thing in the morning, patchy across southern areas – that will lift.”
She added: “The top temperature today is likely to be in Hull once again at 26C.
“It was 26.4C yesterday in Hull making it the warmest part of the UK.
“If this tempts you down to the beach, the water is still a bit nippy. We see our sea temperatures peak around the end of September.
“If you are tempted though, you might want to bring a hanky. The pollen levels are very high across parts of the southeast and high across the rest of England.
“Through this evening and overnight, we see a return to a lot of cloud, weather front coming in from the northwest sinking south and taking its rain with it.
“But it’s a cold front so behind it we see fresher conditions moving on overnight.”

It comes as the UK could see above-average temperatures this weekend as the country braces for a spate of sunny weather during the kick-off for Euro 2020.
Temperatures on Friday, Saturday and Sunday are predicted to see highs in the mid-20s, with Sunday lined up to be the warmest day of the weekend for England, Scotland and Wales, according to the Met Office.

“Friday will be largely fine and dry for much of the country,” he said.
“There is a band of cloud and light patchy rain in the far north-west of Scotland, and there’ll be some showers affecting parts of the west as well.
“There’s also clouds in the south (of England), however temperatures will remain above average for this time of year and there will be long, warm sunny spells for central and south-east areas in particular.
“You’re looking at temperatures of mid-20s across the country but in London it could be 27C (80.6F) on Friday.”
