3 years ago
Liverpool is set for another scorching weekend after a mixed spell of weather at the start of the week.
The high temperatures will start on Thursday and will continue throughout next week.
These high temperatures are the result of southerly winds moving from Europe and high-pressure patterns that are set to kick in from around Thursday.
It is due to come after a “mixed start” to the week.
Sunny spells and generally settled weather can be enjoyed across Liverpool, but heavy rain is on the way for other parts of the UK.
Met Office forecaster Bonnie Diamond said:
“The pressure pattern is generally high, so in combination with the southerly winds and high pressure we get settled, sunny and hot weather.”

These high temperatures could trigger some thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday.
