Hot spell to continue - but Tettenhall Pool still shut
The hot spell is set to continue for the Black Country and Staffordshire this week.
It will be largely dry, warm and sunny with temperatures hovering in the low to mid 20s, several degrees warmer than the May average, the Met Office said.
However people have been warned not to head to Tettenhall Pool to cool off just yet with the official reopening set for the Bank Holiday weekend.
A Wolverhampton council spokesman said: “People are being reminded that Tettenhall pool is not currently in use as it undergoes chemical treatment ahead of this Bank Holiday weekend’s official reopening.
“The public are urged to ignore reports on unofficial social media channels telling them otherwise.”
The balmy conditions have swept in on a high pressure system, dragging in hot air from the continent, meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said.
There is a risk of some isolated thunderstorms across central and southern England throughout the week. Mr Dewhurst said: “Temperatures in the low to mid 20s should continue for this week, with quite widespread warmth. UV levels are generally high, so people should make sure they’re protected.”
