Thunderstorm warning but temperatures still set to soar to 36C

Meanwhile sun worshippers in the United Kingdom have sizzled in the hottest temperature of the year so far, with a scorching 33.3C recorded in England yesterday.

Highs of 35degC are expected on Thursday and 37degC on Friday.

As Brits swelter in temperatures that rival Jamaica, the Met Office has issued an amber warning for some parts of the United Kingdom until Friday this week, and urged people to stay indoors.

The Met Office is forecasting that the warm weather will continue in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas over the coming days, with no respite from the heatwave in sight.

Tomorrow is tipped to be the hottest day of the year so far with temperatures tipped to topple the monthly record.

Parts of Britain are forecast to bask in temperatures of 35C (95F) later this week, surpassing Monday, which was the hottest day of the year so far.

There is a chance the high temperatures could even beat the all-time United Kingdom record of 38.5C, with the hot weather set to continue into August.

"This could mean that many people will see the first significant rain in a while, however those in the east could be disappointed with the amount of rain in this part of the country".

The Met Office says that hot weather often brings the risk of showers and thunderstorms and there is a chance of a few of these breaking out over East Anglia, south-east and perhaps central England on Thursday evening.

Large hail and strong, gusty winds are additional hazards.

The Met Office has recently issued a level 3, or amber, heatwave warning in certain parts of England as temperatures this week are set to reach scorching.

The heat health watch warning is created to make local services aware that these conditions are being met, and for them to take action. The Heat Health Watch Service is created to help healthcare professionals manage through periods of extreme temperature.

"There is greater potential for both the July and the other (all-time) record to go tomorrow", said a Met Office spokesman noting that the highest temperatures are expected in the southeast - in Kent, Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
