WORCESTER is set to be hotter than places such as Madrid, Rome and Lisbon today as the heatwave continues.

Worcester is expected to see highs of 29C according to the Met Office, higher than 26C in Madrid, 22C in Rome and 24C in Lisbon.

Any fog patches lingering from this morning will soon clear,  and we will be left with another dry and sunny day with wall-to-wall blue skies for most of us.

It will feel very warm, albeit somewhat breezier than it was yesterday.

The weather is expected to remain fine and warm this evening with plenty of sunshine.

The clear skies will continue for most of overnight, but patchy fog is set to develop in some areas, especially in the countryside.

It is sadly expected to be another uncomfortably warm night for sleeping, with a minimum temperature of 15C.
