Based on a decade of weather records, families still mulling over where to go abroad should stay put at the end of July which is set to be a scorcher in the warmest week of the year.

The average temperature during the 30th week of the year is around 19.4°C in west London, which will fall between July 25 and July 31 in 2016.

In the same month in 2014 Britain basked in a heatwave with the average temperature - not even the highest - staying at 21°C or above in west London for the whole week.

According to data analysed by getwestlondon from readings for Heathrow Airport on the Weather Underground website, every year since 2006 the last week of July has seen heat levels between 17°C and 23°C.
