UK weather forecast LATEST: Heatwave continues tomorrow after hottest day of the year as Met Office expert makes warnin

THE UK is set for a scorcher TODAY as temperatures soar to highs of 34C, but Brits may wave goodbye to the glorious weather sooner than expected.

The Met Office have confirmed that London could see highs of 34C today whilst Venice will only reach 28C.

However, as quickly as temperatures rocket hotter than the Sahara desert, it is forecast to plummet right back down on Sunday as the UK is battered with rain.

The Met Office issued a Level 3 Heatwave Action amid the scorching heatwave, urging Brits to be very careful in the blazing sun.

Advisors from The Met Office say: “Look out for others, especially older people, young children and babies and those with underlying health conditions.

“Close curtains on rooms that face the sun to keep indoor spaces cooler and remember it may be cooler outdoors than indoors.

“Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol, dress appropriately for the weather and slow down when it is hot.”

Sunday brings gloomy highs of 18C with lashing of rain across the British Isles.

Rainfall is likely to hit overnight in the north, and early morning for the south, with sporadic showers dotted across the UK.

  • Hot & bothered! How to sleep in a heatwave

    If you struggle to sleep during sweltering weather, read the following tips!

    • Use thin bedsheets, or look into getting a weighted blanket
    • Drink PLENTY of water
    • Avoid heavily caffeinated drinks, as they can be dehydrating
    • Block out the light during the day, keep curtains shut to ensure your room stays cooler
    • Buy a cooling eye mask and keep it in the fridge during the day
  • Look after the elderly during the heatwave

    While some Brits are thriving in the scorching heat and blazing sun, others struggle to cope as their health could be at risk.

    If you have any elderly neighbours, or family, make sure to check up on them. Those who are elderly may be forgetful, and grabbing a glass of water every now and again can easily slip from memory.

    Here are some tips to help the elderly:

    • Age UK say use sunscreen of at least SPF 30. Apply it generously and top up at least every two hours. If you’ve been in water, reapply when you are dry. 
    • Look out for heat exhaustion signs: muscle cramps in your arms, legs or stomach, mild confusion, weakness or sleep problems. If you have any of these, rest in a cool place and drink plenty of fluids and seek medical advice
    • Try to keep window’s open and blinds and curtains shut (but don’t leave the windows open!)

  • Record June temperature could be broken on Friday

    A record June temperature could be broken on Friday, bookies predict.

    This Friday looks set to provide sweltering heat with William Hill offering 7/1 on the 17th being the hottest British June day ever.

    The temperature is set to rise as high as 28C on Thursday, but with the heatwave forecast to intensify, bets are now being placed on Friday being a record-breaker. 

    William Hill spokesperson, Tony Kenny, said: “If the forecast is right then Friday is set to be roasting, and quite possibly near to the all-time June record of 35.6c.

    “It looks like the temperatures are going to rise well into the thirties and we’re offering 7/1 on Friday to deliver temperatures over 35.6C, which would be a British record for June.”

    • Friday 17th June to record a temp in UK over 35.6C = 7/1
  • Heat may remain potentially into Saturday

    Today’s heat will usurp Malibu, California where temperatures are expected to go no higher than 23C. And, Friday is likely to see highs of 34C with sun-starved Brits set to pack the nation’s beaches and parks this weekend.

    Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said: “We have got high pressure at the moment so we are getting a certain amount of natural homegrown heat building up because obviously we have got clear skies and fairly dry ground conditions across southern England.

    “We have also got warmer air being brought up from further south in Europe where there has been a major heat incident, particularly in Iberia, so that’s leading to the sort of crescendo we will see on Friday.

    “Because of the direction of the flow, with the weather pattern we have got set up in our latitude, that is encouraging this warm flow of air to come further north.

    “We have got the heat building day by day. The next couple of days will be hotter than the preceding day.

    “We think at the moment, although there is some uncertainty, that the weather temperatures will peak on Friday and then largely we will be in for a cooler day on Saturday.

    “Heat may remain potentially into Saturday but for most parts of the UK because we have got a cold front moving down from further north we will see temperatures coming back down – but they may just hang on in southern England.”

  • Protect yourself from the sun

    If you’re planning on spending the day at the lake, beach or pool while the weather’s hot, don’t forget to protect yourself – and others- from the sun.

    Sun exposure adds up day after day, and it happens every time you are in the sun, but getting too much sun can be harmful.

    There are some simple steps you can take to limit your exposure to UV rays.

    • Seek shade
    • Slop on sunscreen and slip on a t-shirt
    • Be sure to apply the sunscreen properly – Always follow the label directions. When putting it on, pay close attention to your face, ears, neck, arms, and any other areas not covered by clothing.
    • Wear a hat
    • Don’t forget the sunglasses to protect the eyes and skin around them
