6:56 pm
takes up at 745 at celtic park. you can follow it on the bbc sport website, but for now, for the team clinic at night. hello. a few isolated thunderstorms around today, but for many, it's about the sunshine and heat. a met office amber warning for extreme heat remains in place, parts of wales, the midlands, southwest england towards hampshire and the isle of wight, a combination of high night—time temperatures, high daytime temperatures will have an impact on health, infrastructure and potential travel to. it's here where we see the highest temperatures this afternoon, 30—31 celsius quite widely across these areas. a little bit fresher for some coastal parts, as we will see elsewhere, we can see temperature still into the high 20s for many across northern england, parts of northern ireland and even into the far southwest of scotland. the north and east of scotland, parts of northeast england, the yellows on the chart there indication that things are little bit cooler,
6:57 pm
and that's because we will have some low cloud lapping onshore every now and again. at the heat across england could spark off some severe thunderstorms, only seeing one or two already, more to come to go to the afternoon into the evening. and it will be a pretty muggy evening as well, trying to get to sleep, well, by midnight, temperatures still in the low 20s for a few of you. and even as we go through the latter stages of the night, the showers will fade, mist and fog will develop across some eastern parts, but note the temperatures, still in the high teens in some parts of the country. and with a warm start to tomorrow, northern ireland now has an amber warning out for extreme heat from the met office through wednesday, thursday and indeed friday. more sunshine developing here, more sunshine developing in the southwest of scotland too, but there will be more cloud to the northeast of england, and that will limit the temperature right here a little bit. a few showers set off, isolated, but we can still see temperatures into the low 30s in southeast wales, parts of southwest england and increasingly into the southwest of northern ireland across fermanagh.
6:58 pm
that heat could build even further across northern ireland into thursday, potentially record—breaking once again. we saw national records broken on saturday. it could go with temperatures close to around 31 celsius. for most, though, a sunny and hot day starting to turn a little bit less hot across some eastern parts of england. that trend continues, in fact coming to friday, as the breeze picks up. that will help to mix things up a little bit. still pretty warm, though, across most parts of the country, as it will be to some parts of western scotland, northern ireland into the weekend, but overall, temperatures dropping, and if it's all been too much, the return of some showers and thunderstorms more widely across england and wales on saturday with temperatures closer to where they should be for this stage in the year. goodbye for now.
