Get set for a fresh run of sun in Cornwall.

Thursday and Friday look set to be virtually wall to wall sunshine in the Duchy.

Forecasters say there will be a bit more cloud about on Saturday and Sunday but most places will see more sunshine.

Temperatures could pass 70F.

The Met Office says there is a 25% chance it could be the beginning of the hottest summer on record - although, disappointingly, there is also a one in ten chance June, July and August could be colder than average.

Forecaster Charles Powell warned against expecting uninterrupted sunshine: "A more recent example is the spring, which was the third warmest on record. But that wasn't because we saw loads of blue skies and high temperatures. There was much more in the way of mixed weather and mild nights. It's those factors that can contribute to a warm scenario.

"The mantra for a great British summer was three fine days and a thunderstorm. That's something we haven't seen for quite a while. The basis of that research was the idea that warm air can hold more moisture and, as such, more moisture can mean clouds that bear more rain - and some of that can be quite intense."
