Sun worshippers have headed to parks, beaches and other outdoors spaces over the past week as glorious sunshine has baked the UK dry. Temperatures peaked at 28.3C (82.94F) in Northolt, northwest London, on June 2 as swathes of the country enveloped in heat.

Today is set to be even hotter with the mercury tipped to hit 30C (86F) in London and parts of the south east.

The majority of the rest of the south east should also enjoy temperatures of 25C (77F) and above.

And new charts indicate this sizzling summer is set to continue, with a second heatwave striking at the end of June.

Highs will subside into next week but the glorious weather is set to return even hotter towards the end of June, according to WXCharts.

It predicted that on June 27 the capital will be baked dry as temperatures hit 30C (86F).

This is significantly hotter than the monthly average – which typically ranges from 19C (66.2F) to 22C (71.6F) and “rarely” exceeds 27C (80.6F), according to the Met Office.

These blistering highs will stretch right across the south east – with maximum temperatures set to rarely peak at less than 27C (80.6F), WXCharts predicted.

Outside of the UK’s capital, Cardiff is set to enjoy highs of 24C (75.2F).

Again this is two degrees hotter than is usual for the city in June – which typically sees temperatures ranging between 17C (62.6F) to 19C (66.2F).

The Midlands will enjoy similar highs – being baked a degree hotter than the Welsh capital.

East Anglia is also set to bask in glorious sunshine with Norwich bracing itself for an unseasonably warm 28C (82.4F).

The predicted high is around 10Cs (50F) higher than the Norfolk city’s typical temperatures of between 17C (62.6F) to 20C (68F).

Across much of the rest of the UK, WixCharts is predicting that temperatures will hit highs of at least 24C (75.2F).

The monthly average for June is 19C (65F).

According to the latest BBC Weather long range forecast from Monday an area of high pressure is set to remain over the UK and “temperatures are expected to remain above average for the first half of the week”.

BBC Weather’s long-range outlook adds there is a 25 percent chance “high pressure stays overhead or slightly east of us well into July”.

If this happens, models suggest the warm-weather system could continue to engulf the UK and the BBC outlook adds it may “keep things warm, dry, and settled for the next several weeks.”

But, the BBC has warned towards the middle part of June there could be a slight break from the sweltering conditions as high pressure begins to slowly drift towards the Atlantic.

This slight change in weather pattern could increase the chances of unsettled conditions in the northwest of the UK by the end of next week, but temperatures are still set to remain “near or above average”.

BBC Weather’s long-range forecast from June 14-20 says: “High pressure that builds in strongly towards the end of next week should begin a slow westward trek in mid-June, gradually shifting away from the UK and into the North Atlantic.”
