total at the time. you can get all the latest sports news at our website — that's bbc.com/sport. but from me and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. whether you like it or not, there is absolutely no end in sight to this hot spell we are experiencing right now and it is a heatwave, temperatures will remain well above average for the rest of the week and into the weekend as well. monday was the hottest day of the year so far,
1:56 am
30 degrees celsius, and many of us experienced temperatures in the high or mid—20s and the jet stream is way to the north of us across iceland there, rushing into northern scandinavia with a bit of a dip here into the mediterranean. we will talk about what that means for the med in a second but as far as we're concerned, high pressure dominating the scene stretching into scandinavia and the whole of west and central europe and southern parts of scandinavia will be warming up so through the early hours, very little happening on the weather front. all the weather is bypassing to the north of us, so way above my head, closer to iceland. the morning will be mild, warm in the south. a little bit chilly in eastern scotland and the north—east of england, possibly single figures and we have a strong sunshine right from the word go on tuesday. beautiful day, some of us loving it, for some of us, a bit too hot but what we find is more of an onshore breeze around these eastern coasts and the north sea is relatively cool is still so temperatures won't be all that high in hull and norwich. the deep orange is displaced further to the west and that is where
1:57 am
the highest temperatures will be. i suspect around 30 in the midlands, london maybe only the high 20s, for example, on tuesday. i mentioned thejet stream dipping into the mediterranean. here we have a low pressure and the weather is not all that great around greece, the greek islands. 25 degrees celsius expected in athens. we are actually warmer here in the uk than in athens, at least on wednesday, but that will change. athens hotting up to about 30 degrees in the next couple of days. back to the uk, a lot of hot weather around midweek. that is an onshore breeze around the kent coast, east anglia, that north sea coast. hulland norwich, a bit cooler, the low 20s. high 20s expected further west. even belfast, getting up to around 26 degrees, 28 in the lowlands of scotland. you don't need to be a meteorologist to guess that the next few days, sunshine galore, as i said, whether you like it or not. bye— bye. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to
