Met Office warns hotter than normal temperatures thanks to continuing high pressure continuing into the autumn months.
The heatwave could last until October, the Meteorological Office has said.
Festivalgoers in Dorset have been pictured making the most of the hot weather as a number of questionable outfits were on display for the third day of Bestival.
Revellers danced in heats of the low 80s as they waited for London Grammar’s headlining performance tonight.
Elsewhere, hundreds headed to Brighton beach to lay in the basking heat of 85F in front of the iconic pier.
The Met Office has issued a ‘yellow’ heat warning for South east England which will remain in place until 9am tomorrow morning.
Meteorologist Dean Hall said: ‘We could see temperatures of 84-86F in London tomorrow, probably somewhere like Kew Gardens or St James’s Park. There will be plenty of fine weather around.’
He added: ‘Temperatures will creep up again through Monday, so we could see 88F in the south east.
‘The peak of the heat is really on Tuesday. We could see 88F, with a low probability we could see 90F around Cambridgeshire, towards Norfolk and into Lincolnshire.
‘In general, around London it will be 86F. Then, really, it’s a dramatic drop in temperatures. By the time we get to Wednesday, it will be 73.4F in London.’
But the Met Office says the probability that overall temperatures in the next three months will remain in the warmest category is 55 per cent, while the likelihood that they will be in the coldest is only five per cent.
Offering a tiny glimmer of hope for heat sufferers, its long-range report for August, September and October, adds: ‘The likelihood of above-average temperatures is greater than normal, but while the chances of below-average temperatures are considerably smaller, they remain a realistic possibility.’
