On Friday the mercury will skyrocket to bring another blast of heat to the UK, with the London region expected to be the hottest. Manchester will not be far behind on 24C while temperatures will hover in the early 20s in the Midlands and the south of England.
According to meteorologists at WXCharts, Wales is on track to be slightly cooler with temperatures ranging from the late teens to the early 20s.
Scotland will have similar conditions while Northern Ireland’s temperatures will top 21C.
The hot blast will dim slightly as we head into the first weekend of July, with temperatures in London dropping to around 20C.
Overall, the UK will see cooler conditions and on Sunday the highest temperature will be 21C in Yorkshire.
In its long-range forecast for the first two weeks of July, the Met Office has said there will be some sunny spells but also rain and showers.
They said: “Temperatures generally rather warm or locally very warm in the sunniest areas.”
Weather experts said the rain will be most likely across the southern half of the UK “with northern and eastern areas likely to experience the best of any fine and dry weather.”
But despite the showers, the Met Office said “temperatures are most likely to be above normal” for early July.
Tonight the heavy showers lashing the south of England are set to ease.
BBC Weather said tomorrow will be a sunny day for Wales and the south-west of England but some showers could come later in the day.
They added: “Thursday looks to be mostly dry and sunny, but with a few patches of cloud and showers in the south.

“On Friday, eastern areas will become cloudy, with the chance of some drizzle early.
“It will become sunny everywhere through the afternoon.”
The blast of heat expected on Friday will come after Britons enjoyed an early summer heatwave.
Beaches and parks were packed with sun-starved families as the lockdown restrictions were eased.
After a grey and wet May, the Mediterranean-like conditions were welcomed by many.
The Met Office has said the second half of July is likely to be “fine and dry” but stopped short of predicting another hot blast.
But the BBC said that “high pressure could build more strongly in the vicinity of the British Isles and produce drier and warmer conditions rather widely”.
They said some computer model evolutions suggest strong high pressure will build “over and around Scandinavia through the middle of July, which would be a very warm pattern with chances of heatwaves developing.”
They added: “This looks an outside risk at the moment, because models have been depicting this high pressure positioning frequently through spring and into early summer.”
