Glorious

Matt Dobson, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "Most areas, particularly in the southern half of the UK, will have another glorious day with plenty of sunshine and obviously very warm again.

Dobson said that the forecast remained fine for the coming days, but temperatures would fall off to something more comfortable by the middle of the week.

He said: "Rather than the heatwave continuing to intensify it will just remain lovely and glorious weather, and will gradually become less hot by Wednesday or Thursday."
