It's sunshine all the way - for the time being – as the Westcountry continues to bask in one of the warmest, driest summers on record.
The Met Office has told people not to put their sun tan lotion away just yet as the fine weather is due to continue until the weekend. However talk of an Indian Summer is premature, say forecasters. "According to the Met Office's meteorological glossary, it's a little too early in the year," said a spokesman.
"An Indian summer is defined as a warm, calm spell of weather occurring after the first frost in autumn, especially in October and November."
Nevertheless, the good weather is due to continue for a few more days.
Today, after a murky start in some parts, Devon and Cornwall are set to bake under unbroken blue skies with temperatures inland up into the 20s and in North Devon around 23-24C, although on the coast it will be a little cooler. However the weather starts to break up tomorrow with cloudier conditions in some parts of the region, although others will continue to enjoy sunshine.
The outlook for Friday is more unsettled again and on Saturday occasionally heavy showers and falling temperatures are expected.
