emperatures in London now could reach up to a glorious 23C at the end of this week.
So far the hottest day of the year was recorded at 23.4C in St. James’s Park on Easter Friday.
Londoners are set to enjoy balmy weather conditions for the rest of this week, forecasters have said.
The Met Office told the Standard that “once rain clears” on Wednesday “the weather will be largely fine and dry for the rest of the week and into the weekend”.
The mercury is expected to reach between 19 and 21C on Thursday.
A “mostly dry and sunny” weekend is on the way, with light winds expected.
Meanwhile, Sunday will be another warm and breezy day with a chance of thundery showers, a spokesperson added.
Temperatures could continue to stay in the mid-20s into next week, with the mercury peaking at 24C on May 17 in London, according to BBC Weather.
The rest of the UK will also feel the heat this month and could possibly break the record for the hottest May in 100 years.
The current record is 27.8C which was recorded in Camden, North London on May 16, 1925.
Next week a forecaster at the Met Office said the record could be beaten.
It comes after Londoners enjoyed the capital’s green parks in the sunshine last weekend while people flocked to beaches in Bournemouth and Brighton to soak up the rays.
