These were the forecasted highs for today.

Could be even hotter tomorrow…

The good news for heat lovers is that the majority of UK is settling and warming as we head through the remainder of this workweek and particularly the weekend. The fly in the ointment shall be Scotland and Northern Ireland.

BBC has 28C for London by Friday.
