Forecasters including the Met Office have taken a punt on the five best days of weather we can expect to see over the rest of August.
While we can’t expect the rumoured second heatwave, some forecasters expect highs of 25C upwards at times this week, from Thursday 19 August until Monday 23 August reports BirminghamMail.
Meanwhile, long range predictor Netweather has predicted sweltering highs of 25C on Thursday in London, and the south east too.

London and the south east will experience the best of the weather, forecasters say in agreement.
What does the Met Office say?
“Through late August there is an increased chance of warmer than average conditions,” the Met Office predicts.
It adds: “Any more prolonged and drier weather would be most likely in the southeast where there is a greater chance of warm spells.”
A Met forecaster said: “The bigger picture shows this intense heatwave across southern parts of Europe.
“Record breaking temperatures are possible this weekend across Spain and Portugal. Meanwhile across the UK it is a lot more changeable and cooler.
“This run of north westerly winds continuing this week and some wet weather fronts bring showers or rain at times but settled conditions possible later in the week.”
In London, the maximum temperature will reach 19C today, before highs of 23C on Tuesday.
The outlook for the city is cloud cover, with breezy winds, and it staying dry for most.
Forecasters predict: “Thursday showers spreading east, becoming heavy at times with a chance of thunder. Friday mainly dry and cloudy, some bright spells.
“Sunny spells Saturday, perhaps heavy showers later, rather warm.”
