A hot weather blast is on the way which is set to send temperatures soaring across the county.
After a fairly miserable start to the month of July which has struggled to produce the sizzling sun we saw in early June, some parts of the country are set to bask in a 32C heatwave.
The warm blast could arrive at the weekend, and may even start on Friday (July 16).
The heatwave is expected to last through to next Wednesday (July 21) with temperatures consistently peaking at around 30C, as BirminghamLive reports.

According to the Met Office, temperatures could reach highs of 27C in Kent on Friday with plenty of warm sunshine gracing the county.
However, an onshore breeze could make it a little cooler for areas in the east of the county.
There is expected to be very little cloud over the weekend, paving the way for a spell of unbroken sunshine across Kent.
Despite temperatures starting to cool after the weekend, locals can still expect to enjoy heat around 25C and continued spells of unbroken sunshine.
Monday (July 19) is the Government's proposed 'Freedom Day', where many people will be desperate to mix with family and friends in the glorious sunshine.
Mercury is set to reach 25C for that day, before slightly cooling to 24C on Tuesday.
Temperatures are forecast to hit 22C on Wednesday, the final day of the heatwave, with yet another dry day and blue skies on the way.
Experts say the heatwave could lead to isolated showers and an unsettled spell towards the end of July, so soak up the sun and enjoy it while you can.
