ANOTHER hot and sunny day is in store for Herefordshire after the county was hit by sweltering temperatures over the weekend.

The Met Office said Monday will be another fine and sunny day, with clear skies giving way to patchy cloud through the afternoon with a slight risk of the odd thundery shower later and a maximum temperature of 32 °C.

It will be another clear, dry night with a minimum temperature 16 °C.

Tuesday will be another hot and mostly dry day with maximum temperatures of 32 °C predicted again. The Met Office said there could be isolated heavy, possibly thundery showers through the afternoon.

The heat will continue through the rest of the week, but conditions are forecast to become more unsettled towards the end of the week, with a risk of heavy, thundery showers developing each afternoon.
