AND FINALLY It is going to get hotter

The Met Office said Britain reached its highest temperature of 2013 on Wednesday, with 32.2°C (89.9°F) recorded at Hampton, southwest of London, and forecasters are expecting the mercury to rise over coming days.

The hottest July temperature in Britain was 36.5°C, recorded in Surrey, southern England, in 2006. The hottest ever in Britain was 38.5°C in Kent in 2003.

July is also expected to become the driest July since records began in 1766 and may beat the record set in 1955 when only one inch (30mm) of rain fell.

"We have had 9mm of rain in the UK and 4mm in England – that is well below the average for the time of year.  Although it is too early to say definitely, we could be looking at the driest July on record", a Met Office spokeswoman said.
