The country's heat wave is set to stay across North Devon over the weekend with temperatures reaching up to 29C. 

The Met Office has forecoast today will be the hottest day of the year with much of country seeing temperatures soaring into the 30s.

Charlie Powell, a forecaster at the Met Office, said Woolacombe and Croyde could expect the hottest tempratures today in North Devon because that area of coast will be potected from the north wind. 

He said: "The hottest will be the Woolacombe, Putsbourgh and Croyde area because the headland will be sheltering them a bit. It could reach 27C,28C or 29C today."

As a result of the high temperatures today the Met Office has issued a Level 2 Heat Health Alert for parts of England over the weekend and have warned there will be high levels of UV and possibly isolated thunderstorms across parts of the country today.

Steve Willington, Chief Forecaster at the Met Office said: "Many parts of the UK will continue to see very high temperatures as we head over the weekend. We are expecting the hottest day of the year today with temperatures expected to reach over 30°C in parts of the south east. With strong UV levels for many areas as well it is important for people to keep up to date with our forecasts over the next few days."
