According to Netweather the south-east can expect the hottest weather with "Perhaps nudging the low 30s in the south-east of England."

With humid conditions building towards the weekend, 30C or more is "quite possible" on Saturday and Sunday, said John Hammond of Weather Trending.

The Met Office's long-range weather forecast reveals that temperatures are to be "very warm perhaps hot for a time" for the first part of the week starting June 14.

    MONDAY SET TO BE HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR

    AFTER strong signs of a heatwave this weekend, with temperatures rising to the mid 20s in some parts of England, Monday is set to be a scorching 28C in some areas of Britain, potentially rising to 30C in London.

    It comes after high pressure makes its way from the Azores island in Portugal, settling across the Midlands and the southeast of England.

    Atlantic influence is to be expected over the northern and western parts of England, bringing with it cloudier skies and patches of rain.

    In June 2020, the highest recorded temperature for the month was a sizzling 32.6C recorded at London's Heathrow Airport at 2.46pm.

    ODDS SLASHED ON 30C OR HIGHER BEING RECORDED THIS WEEK IN THE UK

    POPULAR bookmaker Coral has cut the odds to 1-6 (from 4-5) on 30C or higher being recorded in the UK before the end of the weekend.

    The company is offering 4-5 that this month ends as the warmest June on record, while it is 4-6 that this summer is the hottest ever in the UK.

    "Our betting suggests temperatures will rise into the early 30s before the weekend is up," said Coral's John Hill.

    "We also make it odds-on for this month to finish as the hottest June on record, while we could also be set for a record hot summer," added Hill.

    MET OFFICE: HOT CONDITIONS OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS

    A Met Office spokeswoman said: “We are looking at what could be hot conditions over the next few weeks, but it’s still very early to tell whether it will be the hottest June yet.

    “High pressure is starting to build which should lead to fine and dry conditions, with the occasional showery and thundery outbreaks.
    “We’re hopefully looking at what will be a very nice June indeed.”

    WEEKEND SET TO BRING MINI HEATWAVE ACROSS THE UK, FORECASTERS SAY

    Britain could be on the brink of a mini-heatwave this weekend, with the mercury reaching the high 20s across most of the UK.

    A spell of high pressure means most areas will meet the Met Office's definition of a heatwave – defined as three days above a particular temperature threshold.

    The sun is set to stick around for the rest of the month, with only north-western parts due a little wind and rain towards the end of next week.

    Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon told the PA news agency: "There's a definition of what a heatwave is – it is at least three consecutive days of maximum temperatures meeting or exceeding a temperature threshold.

    "It is above 28C (82.4F) for London and large chunk of the south east, it is 27C (80.6F) for the Midlands and going towards the south west its 26C (78.8F). In Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Devon and Cornwall and the north east its 25C (77F) – so it is a sliding scale depending on where you are, but we haven't yet met that maximum threshold."

    DOG’S BALEARICS

    Britain is set to be hotter than the Balearics today as the mercury soars to 24C – but sudden hail showers are expected to sweep the East.

    After a weekend of balmy sunshine, some may now need a brolly despite the high temperatures continuing today. 

    Brits will be able to bask in the heat as any fog and low cloud lifts away this morning, making room for sunny spells – while Ibiza just scrapes 22C.

    It’s welcome news to those whose holiday plans were scuppered due to the latest green-list announcement – but as it finally starts to feel like summer, some parts of the country will be struck by sudden hail showers.

    HOW DO I SLEEP WHEN IT IS HOT?

    Experts have issued the following tips to help get a good night’s sleep.

    • Keep bedroom curtains closed during the day
    • Use cotton sheets, which will absorb sweat and help you sleep more comfortably
    • Open a window an hour before you go to bed
    • Use a fan to circulate air around the room
    • Put sheets in the freezer for a few minutes before bedtime

    When it comes to coping with higher temperatures, Dr Thomas Waite of Public Health England has said: “It’s really important to remember that there are some people whose health suffers in hot weather.

    “Older people, those with underlying health conditions, and young children may all feel the ill-effects.”

    US WEST COAST BRACED FOR “FORMIDABLE” HEATWAVE

    A formidable heatwave is set to grip America's West Coast over the next week, sending temperatures soaring above 100F.

    The early-season hot spell could also break more than 130 heat records from Southern California all the way up to parts of Washington State.

    Temperatures will edge over the 100F mark as far north as Eastern Washington during the heat wave’s peak, forecasts from the National Weather Service show.

    Some communities in California’s Central Valley could also be hit with temperatures as high as 110F in the coming days.

    Similarly, in northern California, highs will range from 20 to 25 degrees above average for this time of year.

      BRITS LEFT RED-FACED AFTER STAYING OUT TOO LONG IN THE SUN THIS WEEK

      Dozy Brits were left red-faced after staying out too long in the sun this week.

      Social media pics showed the body areas they’d remembered to cover up — or not — in a painful British bake-off.

      It comes after Britain reached highs of 26C – with parts of the UK clocking in HOTTER than Spain.

      As Brits packed out beaches and parks to soak up the rays, tourists in Ibiza were pictured sheltering under umbrellas during downpours as temperatures barely reached 18C.

      The UK’s sunny spell will also be warmer than other popular destinations, including Portuguese archipelago Madeira, where it will be a pitiful 16C and rainy, and Nice in southern France where it is only set to reach 22C.

      HOT DOGS CONTINUED

      If you place the back of your hand on the pavement and it feels hot – then it’s too hot for your dog’s paw.

      Experts call it the seven-second pavement test – if it’s too hot for your hand for seven seconds, then walking your dog in those conditions wouldn’t be the best idea.

      Dogs’ main sweat glands are located on their paw pads – which is one of the reasons why walking on hot pavements is uncomfortable for the pups.

      In the hot weather, don’t run, jog or cycle with dogs.

      IS IT TOO HOT TO WALK MY DOG?

      Dogs, just like people, can get heatstroke so you should walk them when it’s cooler, such as early in the morning or later at night.

      Heatstroke can be fatal and occur in a matter of minutes, with tell-tale signs include collapsing, excessive panting and dribbling.

      But sadly, often when they show symptoms the damage is already done.
