N.Wales set for hot spell.
TEMPERATURES are set to soar above average across the UK after a dismal summer - and North Wales could see 70deg by Thursday.
Parts of the South East of England and East Anglia will see a top temperature of 23degC, well above the 19degC average for this time of year.
Much of the rest of Wales and England could hit a high of 22degC, with Scotland enjoying a balmy high of 20degC - four above its September average.
Although temperatures over the next 10 days are unlikely to rise to the high of 27degC experienced last year, it will still be warmer than much of the past summer when temperatures sat at an average of just 13.9degC. However those hoping for an Indian Summer may be disappointed as a low pressure system is expected to start to move in from the west over the weekend, bringing the risk of some rain.
