This June is set to be the hottest on record, with temperatures smashing 30 degrees by the end of the month.

Yesterday, the heat peaked at 24 in London, and sun-seekers flooded the coastlines to make the most of the sunny spell on the beach.

Betting company Coral are offering odds of 4/6 that June will be the hottest ever as warm weather is due to return.
Spokesman John Hill said: “We’ve already been treated to some glorious weather so far this month – and the best may still be to come.”
However, the Met Office says it’s too soon to say for certain whether the weather will beat records. However, it agrees we are set for a scorcher.
A Met Office spokeswoman said: “We are looking at what could be hot conditions over the next few weeks, but it’s still very early to tell whether it will be the hottest June yet.
“High pressure is starting to build, which should lead to fine and dry conditions, with the occasional showery and thundery outbreaks.
“We’re hopefully looking at what will be a very nice June indeed.”
The Met Office’s long-range forecast for June 9 to June 18 added: “Temperatures are likely to remain average to warmer than average with an increased risk of hot conditions.”
So get ready to slather on the SPF, ready to enjoy some brilliant sunshine at last.
