IT'S ANOTHER day of sun for Brits again today with temperatures reaching 23C.

According to the Met Office, the burst of hot weather is here to stay for the entire weekend.

Thursday morning will see some early cloud in the south and west but will clear.

The south will be cooler than yesterday with some moderate breezes.

The north will see higher temperatures peaking 18C in some areas.

The forecast for Friday through Sunday reads: “Remaining fine for most with warm sunshine.”

It will be largely dry with plenty of sunshine for Brits to continue to enjoy activities in groups of six or less.

It also warned that temperatures would be falling at nights and that some regions, particularly in the North, would see patchy spells of rain.

It will be cloudier in parts of northern Scotland with light rain in places.

The temperatures are forecast to be a lot cooler than yesterday and the day before when temperatures peaked at 31C.

Thousands sizzled on beaches and in parks on Monday when the mercury hit 31C.

It was the first time temperatures have topped 30C since 2016. The September average is 18C.

The warmer weather is down to a combination of tropical air pushing up from the south and light winds, the Met Office said.

Forecaster Bonnie Diamond added: “It definitely feels like one last blast of summer even though we are, meteorologically speaking, in autumn.”

September has been the warmest since 2016 and follows an August heatwave when temperatures topped 34C for six days running.

The scorching weather will ease off through the end of the week as colder air sweeps into Britain from the Atlantic.

Folk flocked to resorts including Blackpool and Bournemouth with many breaking the Government’s “rule of six”.

Britain was also hotter than Crete (27C), Ibiza (28C) and Antigua (30C).

The Met Office and Public Health England even issued a heat-health alert for London and the South East.

Deputy chief meteorologist Chris Tubbs said: “Thursday and Friday will be fine and dry for most.

“Whilst it’ll be cooler for northern areas with the chance of frost in rural spots overnight, it’ll stay warm in southern and eastern parts.”
