The hottest day of the year was recorded in west London on Wednesday (May 24), a scorching 26.4ºC at St James's Park.
But if you thought that was hot, then you are in for a surprise, because it is set to get even hotter , with a possibility of the mercury reaching 30ºC on Saturday (May 27).
According to Met Office forecaster, Emma Sillitoe, temperatures will continue to climb into the weekend.
She told getwestlondon : "Tomorrow is going to be much of a similar day, still plenty of sunshine around and temperatures maybe 27ºC.
"That is going to be the trend towards the weekend, so generally temperatures climbing day by day, so as we get through to Friday, plenty of unbroken sunshine, we are not really going to see a cloud in the sky through Friday and 28ºC".
And as for the weekend, she added: "Saturday could reach 29ºC with the possibility of 30ºC."
So yes, if you cracked out the shorts and sunnies today, don't put them away just yet, you will be getting a bit more wear out of them as the week goes on.
The hot weather is coming from Iberia, as Miss Sillitoe explained: "We've got southerly winds at the minute, coming from the continent that's bringing the heat up to us."
Amidst their celebration of Wednesday (May 24) being the hottest day of the year so far, the Met Office also reminded people to stay safe whilst enjoying the sun.
