The hottest day of the year has officially been recorded and the heat is not going anywhere, as it could end up getting even hotter tomorrow – which led the Met Office to issue a severe heat warning.

The Met Office has officially called Wednesday the busiest day of the year so far.

But that could be jettisoned on Thursday as temperatures look extremely hot ahead of Friday, where Britons are expected to experience 34-degree heat.

Of course, regions within the U.K. could hit with giddy hot climates such as Portugal, Jamaica, and Guatemala, experts warn.

Commenting on the heatwave, Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Rudman said: ‘Temperatures will continue to rise as we go through the week, becoming well above-average by Friday when many parts of the southern half of the UK are likely to exceed 30C and may even reach 34C in some places.’
