Some of loved the hot, dry weather and some have struggled with it.

While Friday will see a continuation of the dry and sunny conditions of recent days, with temperatures widely into the mid-20s Celsius, that is set to change with some thundery showers possible on Saturday, though temperatures will still be higher than usual for the time of year.

The Met Office says:

Despite the shift to more thundery conditions, a plume of warm air is still influencing the UK weather, with temperatures through the weekend likely to remain in the mid-to-high 20 Celsius for some, though some places could dip slightly below the threshold for the official heatwave to continue.

Accompanied with warm days, night-time temperatures will remain well above average; providing little relief to those more vulnerable to high temperatures. The UK Health Security Agency, which covers the healthcare sector in England, has a Heat Health Alert in force.

Help to protect the vulnerable people that you know including older people, those with underlying conditions and those who live alone; they may need support to keep cool and hydrated. For more advice check out the NHS advice on how to cope in hot weather.
