London’s just seen its hottest day ever, and while temperatures don’t look like they’ll climb that high again (a relief to many) it does look like we’re in for a proper summer heatwave.
No longer will we suffer the disappointment of a day of sun followed by a week of drizzle – it’s forecast that we’ll see wall-to-wall sun for the next two weeks.

With temperatures set to peak at around 33C we’re in for days upon days of glorious summer weather, and we are so ready for it.
According to BBC Weather, the best of the sun is forecast to come this weekend, with temperatures on Friday, August 7 due to reach 33C with not a cloud in the sky.
Saturday and Sunday will follow suit, with highs of 31C and 27C, and a gentle breeze making sure that if you are out for the day you don’t get too hot and bothered.
At the start of this week and the next temperatures are slightly lower, with highs ranging between 25C and 30C – not something to be sniffed at.

While we might get a few clouds – probably a welcome break from the hot direct sunlight – it doesn’t look like there’ll be any rain.
Currently not a single day this week has a chance of rain above 9 per cent, hovering more at the 5 per cent mark.
The trend looks set to continue, and with next week’s chances of rain reaching a maximum of 19 per cent the odds are firmly in favour of a dry fortnight.
