Kent's heatwave has an end on the horizon – with showers and cooler spells breaking onto the forecast for next week.
The Met Office, Weather.com and Accuweather all have at least one day next week as being dominated by rain, rather than the bright, hot weather we've been blessed with recently.
The heatwave will persist up until then however – with scorching highs of 29-30C expected for the tail end of the weekend.
A dismal May and a chilly April left many in Kent positively begging for a change in fortunes – and it appears that June will continue to bring a much-needed dose of summer.

Indeed – this coming weekend should see a perfect start to Euro 2020, as England's three lions play Croatia on a day that could break records as the hottest day of the year so far.
However, with the heatwave breaking next week, the sun and warmth won't be quite as consistent as it has been lately – but temperatures will maintain highs north of 21C for the remainder of the month.
Skies will remain clear with very low probability of rain until June 15, and from there cloud will accumulate next week, making the probability of showers climb.
Next Wednesday (June 15) is expected to be warm, with highs of 25C, but Thursday (June 17) will see the heat come to an abrupt stop, with maximum temperatures of 22C and a 59 per cent chance of rain.
From there, temperatures will remain on the cooler end of the 20s until early July, where a forecast spell of absolutely clear skies will see temperatures rise again.
