Temperatures across the UK are predicted to soar once again as August gets underway.

While the mercury is unlikely to rise to the levels seen in July, temperatures are expected to reach the mid-30s.

Forecasters say that the southeast of England will reach 32C on August 9, with a similar outlook for the following day.

Things will only get hotter by August 11, with the temperatures rising to 35C in counties such as Surrey and Berkshire.

Wiltshire and Somerset are set to bake in 34C, while things will be a bit fresher in Devon and Cornwall, at 31C.

Met Office pokesman Stephen Dixon said the organisation's medium-range models show the potential for "some above average temperatures in the south of the UK" in the first week of August.

He said it was possible the UK could experience anything "from the mid-20s to the low 30s" during that time.

Temperatures will stay above 30C across the Midlands, although Lincolnshire and Norfolk will likely only reach the mid-20s.

Across Wales, temperatures will remain between the high-20s and 30C, with the hottest spots found around the English border.

Further north will see temperatures consistently in the mid-20s, peaking around Leeds and the Yorkshire Dales at 24C.

Newcastle will drop below 20C, with temperatures of 19C common in the northeast of England for the day.

The weather in the immediate future is also looking rather balmy, with a "pleasant summer's day" predicted across most of the UK, with highs of 28C.

“We will see some sunny spells to take us through the day, and a pretty warm day as well," said BBC forecaster Matt Taylor.

“25C to 28C degrees expected for today."

Last month, records were broken as England recorded its hottest temperature ever – 40.3C in Coningsby, Lincolnshire on July 19.
