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

THE hottest day of the year has officially been recorded, and the heat is going nowhere as tomorrow could be even warmer – prompting the Met Office to issue a severe heat warning.

The Met Office has officially recorded Wednesday as the hottest day of the year so far.

But this could be knocked out of the park on Thursday as temperatures are looking to be exceedingly hot, ahead of Friday where Brits are forecast to scorch in 34C heat.

Certain areas in the UK could hit dizzyingly hot climates such as Portugal, Jamaica and Cost Rica, experts have warned.

Thursday will be another day of scorching weather, with highs of 28C in London, 23C in Manchester and 19C in Scotland with rain showers.

But in response to the baking weather, the Met Office has issued a level 2 heat-health warning. 

Air pollution levels have increased to moderate, particularly in the south east, as a result of the heat.

Pollen levels are remaining very high for the majority in the UK, according to the Met Office.

Those who suffer with asthma will need to be cautious over the coming days.

Speaking about the heatwave, Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Rudman said: “Temperatures will continue to rise as we go through the week, becoming well above-average by Friday when many parts of the southern half of the UK are likely to exceed 30C and may even reach 34C in some places.”

    In a statement issued by the Met Office, it confirmed that the scorching temperatures will continue to increase as we get further into the week.

    Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Jason Kelly, said: “The heat is a result of a mix of home-grown warming due to a high pressure over the southern half of the UK, as well as a south westerly airflow bringing warm air, which has been over continent through the week, across the country.”

    “This is the first spell of hot weather this year and it is unusual for temperatures to exceed these values in June. Some areas may see warm nights with minimum temperatures expected to be in the high teens or even low 20Cs overnight, especially in urban areas such as London.”
