BRITS are set to burn away in a 35-degree heat wave in a few weeks as the mercury starts to rise but downpours will strike early.

Yellow weather warnings have been issued for heavy rain and flooding and more flushes are likely across the land.

Weather forecaster Brian Gaze said he would not be surprised if 35C (128F) did occur, but the Met Office expects 30C (75F).

Tuesday’s rainfall will turn a yellowish, dry, grey across the whole of the UK, outside the Met Office.

Chris Fawkes, of BBC Weather, said: ‘We get to endure an area of low pressure that has been with us today and will be with us for the rest of the week bringing rain or showers in the forecast everyday.
