The mercury is set to skyrocket next week as Brits enjoy a scorching July.

A high-pressure jet stream from western and northern Europe will bring warm temperatures with it as it moves across Britain.

Temperatures will begin to climb from next Tuesday – with a high of 23C expected for England's Euro 2020 round of 16 game at Wembley.

The mercury will then rise to 24C on Wednesday, and will reach a high of 25C for the rest of the week.

According to the BBC's long-range forecast, a heatwave could hit most of the country next month.

Some heat maps show highs of almost 30C in July.

Parts of the north west, including Manchester and Coventry, could reach 28C on July 5.

The Yorkshire Dales and Leeds are expected to hit a high of 27C on the same day.

Meanwhile further south, those in London, Kent and Essex could reach 25C.

The BBC's forecast for the first few weeks of July states: "Toward mid-July the pattern is likely to be rather changeable with mixed dry and warm spells and an increased chance of a brief heatwave.

"The extent of high-pressure influence in western and northern Europe is the main source of uncertainty for the forecast.

"Computer models are very enthusiastic on developing a strong high to our east over Germany and into Scandinavia by mid-July.

"This would be a very warm pattern for the UK with a potential for heatwaves.”

The Met Office's UK forecast for the next five days says there will be unsettled weather for the rest of this week, with cloud and some rain for most.
