The best of the sunny weather looks set to be felt on Friday and Saturday in Hull, according to the Met Office.

The spokesperson said: “The broad theme continues through the weekend as an area of high pressure continues to be largely dominant over the UK.

“However, the influence of a weather system over Scandinavia means that temperatures aren’t reaching heatwave criteria, as this weather set up subdues the temperatures slightly from the east.”

The upturn in weather fortunes after a largely grey and below par summer will provide a welcome opportunity for Brits to get some much-needed vitamin D.

UV and pollen levels will also be high across England and Wales over the coming days.

There are no active weather warnings over the next seven days, and the Environment Agency has issued no flood warnings or even alerts.

August through to September

The NetWeather forecast for Monday August 30, to Sunday, September 5, says: “High pressure is again expected to be more frequent than average.

“But the highest pressure will probably transfer south and east, resulting in warmer temperatures and an increased frequency of southerly winds across the UK, with potential for hot spells, especially towards the south-east, and potential for thundery breakdowns.

“Again, it probably won’t be constant high pressure, with some interruptions likely, but overall pressure is expected to be above normal.

“Thus, mean temperatures are expected to be somewhat above normal during this period, probably by 2 to 3C in many parts of the UK.

“It will be generally drier and sunnier than average, but with less certainty over below-average rainfall than in Week 2 due to greater potential for some areas to see thundery downpours.”
