The Met Office has also said UV levels are high across the UK this week.
They recommend sunseekers stay in the shade during midday hours as well as covering up and slapping on sunscreen.
Meteorologist Craig Snell told The Sun Online: “We’re going to be expecting very dry weather with plenty of sun within the next three days.
“The temperature will peak on Wednesday, reaching 24C in parts of Scotland and northern England.
“We’re going to see some rain creep in the the second half of the week, as temperatures will begin to settle down on Friday.”
‘MAKE THE MOST OF IT’
The Met Office’s Sophie Yeomans urged people to “make the most” of the sunshine – as temperatures will dip back down later this week.
She said: “We are expecting another couple of days of sunny weather and light winds, which will push temperatures up through the week.”
