As such, the UK is set to be hotter than Barbados – which will peak at 88F (31C) – with even the north set to reach 86F (30C).   

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Harris said: ‘As we head into next week we are expecting some parts of the country to see some very warm weather, which could reach heatwave thresholds. However, in the cloudier, windier and wetter parts of the North West temperatures will be nearer normal despite high humidity.’ 

Following speculation about a ‘continental heat dome’, Mr Harris added: ‘A high-pressure system will develop over the near continent, bringing warm continental air into the south and east of the UK.’ 

Canine-lovers in Bournemouth made the most of the sunny weather by going to the annual dog-surfing championships. 

Competitors and their four-legged friends took to the water in a series of tightly contested heats, which culminated in a sprint finish across the sand.
