The warnings are in effect from Tuesday (September 5th) until 9pm on September 10th.

Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan told the PA news agency: “Many people will probably see the summer just gone as pretty unexceptional, pretty disappointing if you had any plans in the UK.”

“This week it is likely that we will experience the highest temperature of the year so far.”

The meteorologist said this week will be the first prolonged spell of heat in the UK since June, following an unusually wet July.

Mr Morgan added: “We could well reach record-breaking temperatures over the next few days.

“It’s a little less likely to exceed the daily maximum temperatures, but it will still be hot so we’re waiting for a few records.”

The temperature of 26 degrees means it could be warmer than Madrid (24 degrees), Rome (23 degrees) and Lisbon (23 degrees).

It’s starting off warm and another very warm day is ahead. Early fog and low clouds will burn back to the coasts during the morning before forming again overnight, but generally confined to the coasts. Maximum temperature 27°C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Mostly dry and very warm with long periods of sunshine throughout. Fog and mist may continue overnight and the risk of a shower increases into the weekend. Warm at night.

Temperatures could gradually fall over the weekend and there is a possibility of thunderstorms breaking out in the north and west of the country, the meteorologist added. Met Office: Yellow health warning for the North East
