If you thought it was hot today, wait until you see what’s forecast for next week.

Temperatures hit highs of 26C in some parts of Britain this afternoon as sun-seekers hit parks and beaches.

Tennis fans at Wimbledon basked under the London sun and some opened umbrellas to protect themselves from the rays.

The wellies certainly weren’t needed for the TRNSMT opening in Glasgow, where festival-goers donned sunglasses and bucket hats.

Cities and towns across the UK will continue to face sizzling temperatures this weekend as it is expected to remain around 28C.

And the hot weather is expected to continue as the Met Office has confirmed temperatures could reach 35C next week.

It’s all due to a 600-mile Spanish cloud that’s set to move steadily north over the next week.

Because of the hot weather, the NHS has issued a level three health warning for parts of England next week.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has also issued a Level 2 heat warning.

That means parts of England have a 90 per cent chance of meeting heat warning criteria between 9am Monday and 9am Friday.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “Forecast models point to temperature highs in the mid-30s later next week.

“All eyes are on a southerly airflow that could bring additional heat to our shores.”

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist David Oliver added: “We are at the beginning of a warm spell of weather for much of England and Wales which could last for much of next week.”

“In the short term, many can expect temperatures in the mid to high 20s over the weekend and low 30s early next week. Much of the next week will remain warm for the time of year as well as dry and sunny.’

While the highest temperature of the day so far was recorded at Kew Gardens as 26.5C, temperatures are expected to rise as we near the afternoon.

The Met Office has said it will trigger a steady run of high temperatures over the next few days, meaning Brits could be basking in an official heatwave.

The Met Office defines a heatwave as when a location records a period for at least three consecutive days when daily high temperatures meet or exceed the heatwave temperature threshold.

The threshold varies by UK county.

In London and the South East, the temperature must remain above 28°C for at least three consecutive days.

In parts of the East, Midlands and South West this varies between 26 and 27°C, while other areas such as the North and Scotland have seen temperatures exceed 25°C.
