Several major outdoor events are set to take place across the United Kingdom into Sunday, including Wimbledon and the Latitude Festival.
The final day of Wimbledon will feature returning warmth along with largely dry weather.
The higher humidity that arrived on Saturday will hold into Sunday afternoon as temperatures further rise to around 26 C (78 F). The normal high in London in mid-July is 21 C (70 F).

Spectators and players alike will want to apply sun cream and stay well-hydrated, as there will be warm, sunny spells. However, an odd shower will threaten to lightly dampen a few parts of London on Sunday whilst other locations stay dry.
"There will be a small chance for a sprinkle or brief shower later in the match, but the most likely scenario is that the match remains dry and the roof remains open," Pydynowski said.

Farther north, the British Grand Prix will take place at Silverstone. Qualifying was impacted by showers on Saturday and more rainfall cannot be ruled out for the race on Sunday.
While the bulk of the day will be dry on Sunday, the odd shower could briefly dampen the track before or during the race.
Morning cloud will give way to some sunny spells during the afternoon. It will be quite warm and humid with temperatures climbing to near 25 C (77 F).

The Royal International Air Tattoo will take place into Sunday at RAF Fairford, featuring daily flying displays and 535 total aircraft.
Whilst the highest opportunity for a shower to pass through will occur Sunday afternoon, the bigger concern will be that gusty winds could disrupt some of the flying displays.
Gusts to 25 mph (40 km/h) are possible during the midday and afternoon hours.
Henham Park will host Latitude Festival 2017 into Sunday.
A warm and humid Sunday is expected to close out the four day festival with temperatures climbing to around 24 C (76 F).
There will be enough sunny spells for festival-goers to need sun cream. However, umbrellas and wellies should be kept handy as an odd shower is expected to return on Sunday afternoon.
