Netweather’s maximum and minimum temperatures charts show the majority of England will experience temperatures of between 20C (68F) and 22C (71.6F) by 6pm today. The blood orange colours on the charts however will not widely extend into Scotland and Wales with temperatures expected to be more moderate.

The mercury will peak between 16C (60.8F) and 18C (64.4F) across parts of Northern England, Wales and Scotland.

Forecasters say this afternoon will be mostly dry with sunny spells but variable amounts of cloud cover will build and there is a chance of showers developing, mostly in the west. 

There will be areas of thick cloud and spots of drizzle across Northern Ireland and Scotland.

However, the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning ahead of Sunday when wet weather is due to hit.

Downpours are expected to begin around midday and continue throughout the afternoon and evening.

Eastern parts of the country will see the worst of the rain, with as much as 30mm-40mm falling in some areas.

Experts believe the deluge could lead to localised flooding and disruption to transport.

The Environment Agency has increased its flood risk level from “very low” to “low”.

People are advised to continue checking for flood warnings in their area, monitor weather conditions and traffic information.

A Met Office spokesperson told “The heavier rain is expected to move eastwards across the day, becoming slow-moving across the east later on in the day.

“There is a chance of thunderstorms also and 30-40mm totals over a few hours is possible.

“There is a yellow warning for rain in force from midday to midnight on Sunday, running up the east coast of England.
