BBC Weather’s Matt Taylor said temperatures will remain high overnight in the high teens as humidity clings to the UK. Parts of the UK are set to see tropical temperatures, while some can expect heavy rain and possibly thunderstorms. Forecasters are predicting hot, sunny, and humid weather in the South East in the coming days, with highs of 30C in the south of England on Tuesday, remaining in the high 20s through to Thursday.
Mr Taylor said: “Things are fairly quiet weatherwise but certainly a very humid day across the UK even where we’ve had cloud and drizzle.
“Humid air is with us. Something fresher though is trying to push itself in in the next 36 hours.
“We also have a weather front stretching through Wales into the northeast of England, some outbreaks of rain and drizzle in that.
“Another very warm night out there, temperatures in the mid and high teens for the vast majority.
“To start tomorrow morning, we’ve got one weather front across the south Midlands that has got some drizzle to it, that will push its way southwards and fizzle.
“The rain across the northwest of Scotland will turn more showery.
“Starting to feel a bit cooler but still quite humid for the vast majority. Could get 29C or 30C again with a lot more sunshine around.”
Meanwhile, Met Office meteorologist Rachel Ayers said it would be “very warm to hot, and humid in the South East” but with “temperatures near average in the North West where it will also be windy”.
UK weather: Temperatures to reach 39 degree in mid-August
Heavy showers are expected to come down across north Wales, Scotland and central and northern England during on Tuesday morning,
More downpours will be accompanied by a band of cloud moving eastwards across Wales and England on Wednesday and further rain in northern parts of the UK on Thursday.
Wednesday also brings the possibility of a thunderstorm as showers pass south-eastwards across Wales and England, as well as breezes in the North and a low risk of gales for north-west Scottish coasts.
Northern parts of the UK can also expect to see further showers on Thursday.

It comes after the driest July in England since records began, according to provisional figures from the Met Office.
South-east and central southern England saw an average of only 5.0mm of rain last month, while East Anglia had 5.4mm.
For both areas it was the lowest amount of rainfall in July since Met Office records began almost 200 years ago, in 1836.
Ms Ayers said: “The next couple of days will see unsettled weather for parts of the UK, particularly in the north and west where there will be outbreaks of rain that could be heavy at times, and it will also be windy across the north particularly on Tuesday.
“In the south it remains generally dry though there is a chance of some rain on Wednesday though this is unlikely to bring much rainfall to the far south coast and South East.”
