As football fans set up barbecues and stock up on food and drink, temperatures in England could soar up to 33C – the hottest of the year.
Britons have endured a glorious heat wave over the past few weeks and the temperatures show no sign of disappearing.
Tomorrow is set to be another scorcher with sunny spells and blue skies across the country.
Sophie Yeomans, Met Office meteorologist, said: “The top temperatures today are going to be higher than yesterday.
“I think we’ll probably reach above 32 in England. It’s absolutely possible.
“It’s going to be clear blue skies ahead, with perhaps a little patchy cloud in the afternoon.”
But while sun-worshippers flock to the beach to soak up the rays – the sweltering conditions have caused havoc on the roads.
Yesterday a bin lorry sank into roads in Newbury, Berkshire, after the tarmac collapsed in searing temperatures.
The truck had to be lifted clear by a crane as the heat rose to 29.9C.
While the country could also be on the verge of its first hosepipe ban since 2012 with United Utilities warning that ban in the North West was just “days away”.
The Met Office has issued its own warning to people looking to make the most of the Mediterranean conditions.
Sophie said: “If people are spending a day out, UV levels are going to very high so take care with sunscreen and stay in the shade during middle of day.
“Pollen levels are high at the moment due to the dry weather and the grass is struggling, with a lot of it turning it brown."
