Don’t worry if your summer vacation plans are shelved or not: The capital will soon be as hot as Ibiza.
A period of intense high pressure means most areas can meet the Met Office’s definition of a heatwave – defined as three days higher than a specific temperature threshold.
Mercury is expected to reach the 20s across the UK with London still expected to surpass 28C for a very minimum of three days, the Met Office has said.
Met Office spokesperson Oli Claydon said: ‘There’s a definition of what a heatwave is – it is at least three consecutive days of maximum temperatures meeting or exceeding a temperature threshold.
Weather could change in early July but nothing concrete is in sight, Claydon said
