    The start of London's longest dry and warm spell so far this year will coincide with the finale of Wimbledon.

    A warming trend of temperatures will coincide with the last three days of Wimbledon. High temperatures will rise from 23 degrees C (74 degrees F) on Friday to 27 degrees C (81 degrees F) on Sunday.

    Highs of 21 degrees C (70 degrees F) are more common this time of year.

    The upcoming unseasonable warmth, however, will not challenge any temperature records. June 26, 1976, and its high of 34.6 degrees C (94 degrees F) holds the record for the hottest individual day at Wimbledon, according to the United Kingdom's Met Office.

    As temperatures soar Friday through the weekend, dry weather and skies no worse than partly sunny will prevail.

    "This could be the longest dry and warm spell for London so far this year," stated Nicholls.
