Temperatures are set to climb even higher on Monday (June 14) as the heatwave shows no sign of letting up.
The BBC is forecasting highs of 30C for some of us in Kent – warmer than it will be in Ibiza, Spain.
Areas inland and away from the coast will see the highest temperatures as we set a new ‘hottest day of the year’.
The blistering temperatures are set to stick around until the middle of the week when thunderstorms will clear the air.
