BBC Weather’s Carol Kirkwood has forecast scorching temperatures in the UK this week as humid air from Bermuda pushes across the country. But it will hit a cold weather front which is expected to bring fog and showers in Scotland and northwest England. Ms Kirkwood said: “We’ve got this weather front coming in from the Atlantic that’s bringing in cloud and some patchy rain. In the north, there is more of a breeze than there was yesterday.
“We’ve also got some mist and fog to start the day across the northeast of Scotland and coming down towards the south coast that will tend to lift.
“For many parts of England and Wales today there will be sunshine but as this weather front moves in it will produce more cloud in Scotland and Cumbria; thick enough here and there for some drizzle.
“Temperatures – we’re looking at 15C in Stornoway and 19C in Belfast but up to about 25C in London.
“Through this evening and overnight under the clear sky in England and Wales once again we will see some mist and fog patches forming.”
She added: “Increasingly tonight you will notice the humidity so it is going to becoming more uncomfortable to sleep.
“It’s humid air we’re pumping up called tropical maritime, its source could well be Bermuda.
“We are looking at a lot of dry weather the further south and southeast you are.”
It comes as crowds flocked to the beaches to soak up the sunshine as temperatures hit almost 23C across parts of England.

The mercury is forecast to rise even higher on Sunday, with 24C expected in London and 21C in Newcastle.
However, Met Office meteorologist Sarah Kent said: “It’s not going to be wall-to-wall sunshine tomorrow, which will probably disappoint quite a few.
“First thing on Sunday morning there will be quite a lot of cloud across central parts of England, eastern Wales, and down to the South West.
“And in that zone, there will be outbreaks of rain, with the odd heavier burst of rain in the South West.”
