The Met Office is now forecasting that the heatwave will return on Saturday 15 July.

In their long-term forecasts it says: “In the second half of July, the initially unclear situation should calm down more and more.”

Meteorologist Craig Snell narrated The mirror: “On July 15th we will start to see that the high pressure prevails and that will bring drier and brighter weather.”

“It’s still early at this point but if you bet this is the best place for the warmest weather.”

“It will be quieter then, but the first week of July will be changeable.”

And temperatures are expected to reach a sizzling 35°C.

Grahame Madge, spokesman for the Met Office, said: “There are no strong signs of hot weather in the first half of July.”

“For mid to high 30C, we could do that, and they’re becoming more common.”

Meanwhile, temperatures will remain cool and parts of the UK will see more rain.

Today temperatures in London will peak at 23°C with “a mostly dry day with sunny spells” expected.

Meanwhile, the forecast for tomorrow reads: “Another day of sunny spells and perhaps the odd shower or two for the southern parts of the UK.”

“More showers to the north where it will also remain windy and cool.”
