    UK weather: How 30C heatwave coming from Azores islands will hit your area

    Brits are set for a sizzling weekend as a mini-heatwave is set to hit the UK this weekend – but will it hit your area?

    Temperatures will be in the upper 20s across most of the country but come Friday they could hit 30C.

    According to the Met Office the whole country will see rising temperatures due to high pressure coming from the Portuguese islands of the Azores.

    The Met said in a blog post on Tuesday that "temperatures, particularly in the south, are likely to reach the mid, to possibly high 20s over the next few days and into the weekend.

    "Some areas may reach heatwave criteria."
