we turned up the heat again on sunday, 32 celsius, 90 fahrenheit in hampshire. london, 31, through the midlands in the strong sunshine that we had here. and there's going to be more than sunshine over the week ahead, if you're looking for rain, you're probably going to be out of luck, just one or two isolated showers, but on the whole it's going to be dry. now, the first day ofjuly did bring some rain in towards the south—west of the uk from that area of cloud there, about half an inch of rain in devon, for example. those earlier showers, some thunderstorms as well, have pretty much moved away out into the english channel over towards the near continent, so probably going to be dry on monday. a little bit of cloud mayjust linger in the far south—east of scotland and behind that we've got some slightly cooler air, so low 20s across scotland. but widely towards 29, 30 degrees in england and wales. 32 perhaps towards south—east wales and midlands. so, sunshine to end the day then for most areas. 0vernight we'll see a little bit
1:56 am
more cloud coming down these north sea coastal areas but staying dry and warmest of all again across southern parts of england and wales, where, for a little while longer, it will feel rather humid. more sunshine on the way for tuesday. there's still a very small chance of picking out a late shower there for the far south—west but otherwise it's dry, very sunny out there on tuesday, hardly a breath of wind around. strong sunshine and those temperatures beginning to lift a little more for scotland and northern ireland too. now, high pressure is sort of in charge of our weather over the weekend. it's not a particularly dominant area of high pressure, but it doesn't need to be. nothing much is moving, there's hardly a breath of wind again on wednesday, a bit of low cloud coming down through the north sea, but on the whole it's sunny skies, a bit of fairweather cloud developing, few if any showers towards the south—west and the heat continues to arrive at the numbers of 29, maybe even 3a england and wales, mid—to—high teens for scotland and northern ireland. little bit of a change perhaps and a fly in the ointment
1:57 am
as we move into thursday. low pressure to the north of the uk. that weather front there is very weak, it will bring a band of cloud towards scotland and northern ireland, may squeeze a shower out over the grampians, but further south, it's likely to be dry, some long spells of sunshine. the heat is certainly still there, so temperatures into the high 20s at the very least. so it's a very quiet week ahead. i'm going to stick my neck out, looks like it will be a dry week in london at the wimbledon tennis championships and elsewhere likely to stay dry with some warm sunshine at times. this is bbc news. i'm nkem ifejika. our top stories: counting is underway in mexico's elections with polls suggesting the country could elect its first left—wing president in decades. germany's interior minister threatens to resign because of differences with the chancellor angela merkel over immigration policy. the us national security advisor says he believes most of north korea's nuclear programme could be dismantled within a year. and in the world cup,
