THE recent spate of good weather seen across East Staffordshire and South Derbyshire is set to continue, with temperatures remaining in the mid-20s throughout the rest of the week.
The news is likely to be welcomed by youngsters throughout both counties as they begin their six-week summer break.
However, the Met Office said there were still likely to be some sporadic showers similar to those seen during the last week, although there is no sustained period of rainfall expected.
It is expected that it is likely to mirror the weather pattern seen last week, with sunshine on most days before light rain settles throughout parts of Saturday and Sunday. However, experts added that this was an excellent opportunity for people to spend time outdoors.
A spokesman told the Mail: "Overall, it's looking pretty decent for both regions up until the weekend at least, with current temperatures set to continue over the next couple of days. Today they're set to peak at around the 25C mark, and that will continue into tomorrow as well as Thursday and Friday.
"We're also expecting there to be a lot of sunshine for the rest of the week but it might become more unsettled towards the weekend, although the temperatures shouldn't be affected. On Friday and Saturday there might be some thundery showers, but these will be scattered throughout and it will remain sunny for the most part.
The Met Office also played down any talk of a 'heatwave' for both the West and East Midlands, stating that temperatures forecast for the week ahead are not expected to exceed those predicted for the time of year.
