This week forecasters expect to see temperatures hit highs of 28C in parts – kicking off a three-MONTH heatwave.
Forecasters say warmer conditions throughout the UK are expected to last until as late as October.
Of today’s weather, Met Office meteorologist Emma Smith told The Sun Online: “We’re expecting a cloudy morning in the West, but that’s definitely going to change as the day goes on.
“There’s going to be plenty of sunshine in the South East where we can expect temperatures to reach 27C in London and 28C further down in the South of the country.
“As we get close to lunchtime, showers are going to start creeping in in Wales and the Midlands, with North of Scotland seeing the worst of tomorrow’s rain.
“However as we get into the evening, the rain will ease up and it will be a fairly dry evening for the most part in the southern counties.”

The hot weather has led to warnings to parents to make sure their kids are coated in suncream during their summer holiday fun in the sun.
Forecasters say a “continental heat dome” will dominate the UK weather picture in the coming weeks.
London and the South East are set to bask in the best of the heat.
And the sweltering conditions are set to linger through September and all the way into October.
Temperatures are set to peak at 28C on Wednesday – with even the North East getting some sunny weather.
Met Office meteorologist Helen Roberts told Sun Online: “We’re expecting dry and bright weather this week and Wednesday will see the highest temperature of 28C.
“As for the next three months, we can definitely expect warm weather and bright skies for the most part.”
Early autumn is shaping up to be a warm one, as forecasters predict it to be even hotter than last year’s “Indian Summer” when temperatures hit 26C, making it the hottest October for seven years.
