While parts of the UK have been drenched, forecasters are now predicting a hot air plume arriving in the country next week. According to the latest weather charts, the mercury is set to surge to 25C in some parts of the country due to the hot air, turning the capital red on the map. The weather front will circulate in the Atlantic before heading to parts of Europe next week.
After hitting the edges of central and western Europe, the hot air plume will move towards the UK next week.
According to graphs from forecaster, Netweather, the heatwave will peak on July 8.
The temperatures will be at their hottest in the South of England with London registering 25C.
For the East of England, parts of the South West and Midlands, the mercury will range between 21-22C next Thursday.
Parts of the North of England will also see a high of 23C due to the tropical plume of air hitting the UK.
On Friday, the heatwave will continue as Britons bake in July sunshine with many areas in the south reaching 22C, the charts suggest.
In the North of England and Scotland, temperatures will range between 17-20C while the other parts experience warmer weather.
While the temperatures are expected to drop on June 11, BBC Weather added the mercury may surpass 25C depending on how high pressure builds in Germany.

If high pressure does build in Germany, it may impact conditions across the Channel, which could spark higher temperatures in the South of England.
Commenting on the period between July 5-11, BBC Weather reports: “Low pressure systems are expected to move in at times from the west or southwest and bring rain to most parts of the country at some point.
“The best chances for warmer spells will be in the southern half of Britain as these lows drag some sub-tropical air from the Atlantic into the UK.
“Western and northern areas are likely to see some changeable temperatures with more frequent cooler spells.

“The one caveat to this is the alternate scenario, which will develop if high pressure builds more strongly into Germany around midweek.
“In this case, the lows will be pushed away to our west and northwest, allowing a southwest wind to feed sub-tropical air in more widely and consistently.
“This pattern is significantly warmer and drier for much of England, but Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland would still see some rain at times.
“There is perhaps a 30 percent chance of this develop, so confidence is high on the large-scale pattern but medium on the temperatures, especially for England.”
Looking ahead to this weekend, Friday is expected to be warm with sunny spells for many across the country.
BBC Weather added: “On Saturday, some northern areas may see a sunny start, but it will soon be cloudy throughout the UK with showery rain.
“Sunday will continue cloudy with outbreaks of rain, these most frequent in the afternoon and locally heavy and thunder.
“Monday will continue unsettled with further showery outbreaks of rain, and longer spells arriving later from the southwest.”
