June is set to be the hottest since 2006, with the mercury expected to rise over its average of 15C.
But what does this weekend have in store?
After a rainy day on Friday (June 5), Saturday and Sunday (June 6 and 7) look to be dry and bright... So get your sunglasses out and have fun in the sunshine!
A yellow weather warning for rain has been issued for London and the South East on Friday before the clouds clear as the weekend arrives.
The warning says: "Scattered thunderstorms are likely to extend northwards across eastern and southeastern areas of England during Friday giving some localised intense downpours.
"The public should be aware of the risk of localised surface water flooding which may lead to disruption to transport and outdoor activities. Frequent lightning could prove to be an additional hazard.
"The thunderstorms should clear away eastwards on Friday night.
"As is typical of this type of situation there is considerable uncertainty as regards the extent and timing of any thunderstorms, with some places within the warning area probably escaping the downpours."
The Met's chief forecaster added: "A plume of very warm air is expected to move northwards from France early on Friday to affect southeastern parts of Britain.
"This is likely to provide a focus for locally intense thundery downpours which could readily give 15mm of rain in less than an hour and perhaps as much as 25mm, with 30-50mm possibly falling within three hours."
A spokesman for the Met Office told getwestlondon: "A weather warning has been issued for rain on Friday. Expect heavy, thundery downpours. Showers will start in the early morning, and will be hit-and-miss, some places may avoid the rain.
"It will be quite warm and humid, with a muggy feel, but this will fade away by the evening."
The weather will pick up over Saturday, however, making the weekend a perfect time to grab a summery drink in your local pub garden, or fire up the barbecue.
In fact, it is expected that the weekend could see Britain becoming hotter than Turkey, Spain and Greece.
The Met Office said: "The weekend will be dry and bright, with plenty of sun. The temperature will be around the low 20s."
