On Friday, 7 July, Nottinghamshire is set to bask under clear skies with a maximum daytime temperature of 29 degrees Celsius and a minimum nighttime temperature of 18 degrees Celsius.
The sun will rise at 04:49 and set at 21:30.
The UV index is expected to be very high.
Air pollution levels are predicted to be moderate, and those with pollen allergies should note that pollen levels will be high.
Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Harris said:
“Temperatures will be on the rise from Friday, as a plume of very warm air drifts across the UK from the south.
“Parts of east and southeast England may reach 29 or 30ºC on Friday, with mid-twenties more widely across England and Wales.
“By Saturday, this heat will have extended further north, with parts of Scotland also reaching the mid to high twenties, and again around 30ºC or perhaps even a touch higher for inland parts of eastern England.
“In addition, temperatures overnight will remain high, especially in towns and cities, which will make for an uncomfortably warm night for some.”
Dr Agostinho Sousa, Head of Extreme Events and Health Protection at UKHSA, said:
“This weekend it’s important that everyone takes sensible precautions while enjoying the sun.
“The forecasted high temperatures are expected to be short-lived but could primarily impact those over the age of 65 or those with pre-existing health conditions.
“If you have friends, family or neighbours who are more vulnerable, it is important to check in on them and ensure they are aware of the forecasts and are following the necessary advice.”
