Saturday was not only the hottest day of the year in London and all of the United Kingdom, but also since July 2006. Relief from the heat will not come this week.
Temperatures on Saturday soared to 31.4 degrees C (89 degrees F) at London's Heathrow Airport. Closer to downtown London, temperatures at London City Airport topped out at 29 degrees C (84 degrees F).
While coming close in recent years, temperatures have not been that hot at Heathrow since July 26, 2006, when a high of 32.7 degrees C (91 degrees F) was recorded.
A high of 21.1 degrees C (70 degrees F) is more common in London during mid-July.
There is no end in sight for this recent stretch of unseasonable warmth as temperatures are expected to remain well above normal into at least the middle of next week.
Wednesday is shaping up to be the hottest day of the week going forward, with temperatures challenging and surpassing Saturday's sizzling highs in many locations.
