HEREFORD looks set to bask in sunshine this weekend, and Met Office forecasters think temperatures could climb as high as 25C.

Temperatures on Friday, Saturday and Sunday are predicted to see highs in the mid-20s, with Sunday lined up to be the warmest day of the weekend for England, Scotland and Wales as Euro 2020 gets underway, according to the Met Office.

Some weather forecasters are predicting temperatures of up to 30C in certain parts of the UK on Monday (June 14), which could potentially be the hottest day of the year so far.

The forecaster’s nationwide outlook for Saturday to Monday reads: “Often breezy with rain/showers in the far north. Elsewhere, mainly fine and dry, with sunny spells. Perhaps cloudier more generally Monday. Warm/very warm for many. Nearer normal in the north.”

Earlier this week, the Met Office said in its blog that "high-pressure from the Azores will extend across the bulk of the country this week, bringing predominantly settled weather and allowing temperatures to slowly rise.

"Temperatures, particularly in the south, are likely to reach the mid, to possibly high 20s of Celsius over the next few days and into the weekend.

It said this could result in some areas reaching “heatwave criteria”, which is defined by the forecaster as an uninterrupted period of exceptionally high temperatures.

But looking ahead to the weekend, here's the hour-by-hour forecast for Hereford.

The Met Office does not provide an hourly breakdown for more than the day ahead.

Temperatures look set to remain in the mid-20s until Wednesday, which will be a cloudier day.
