Britain will fry until September due to a 40-day heatwave, with temperatures expected to reach 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
With scorching sunshine and temperatures nearing 80 degrees Fahrenheit, Britain is set to broil for another month.
On Thursday, temperatures are expected to reach a scorching 93 degrees Fahrenheit (34 degrees Celsius), promising BBQ weather for weeks.
This weekend, though, a swarm of strong thunderstorms promises torrential rains, lightning strikes, and potentially tornadoes.
Temperatures will then soar during the rest of July and into August as warm, muggy air blows in from the coast of Spain.
“Temperatures are anticipated to stay around the low- to high-20s for the rest of this month,” Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said.
“Highs in the 20s are forecast for the first part of August, and while it may not be as hot as it has been in the past week, it is still forecast to be hot.
“Based on current indications, we expect high temperatures to continue into the beginning of next month, while there may be some cloudier and muggier periods.”
The Met Office has prolonged its first-ever extreme heat warning until Friday, and has also issued a separate level-3 heat health notice.
The warning, issued by Public Health England (PHE), urges older individuals and people with health problems to be extra cautious.
As a result of the scorching projections, bookmakers have slashed the odds on July becoming the hottest month ever.
This month breaking records is 10/11 from 5/4 at Ladbrokes, while the UK’s hottest summer ever is odds on at Coral.
“With even more sweltering temperatures on the way, it’s now looking more likely than ever that this goes down as a record-breaking hot July,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said.
“The searing temperatures this week have pushed our odds towards now putting this summer odds on to be the warmest ever in the UK,” said Harry Aitkenhead of Coral.
“We also think it’s a good bet that the UK’s warmest ever temperature will be broken in 2021, with temperatures set to rise for the rest of the summer.”
Huge amounts of energy released into the atmosphere during the heat wave have the potential to trigger a weekend thunderstorm.
Southern Britain is bracing for inches of rain and flash flooding, with some areas at risk of being cut off from the rest of the country.
The Met Office has issued a rain warning for Saturday and Sunday, as well as a slew of flood alerts from the Environment Agency.
