If you've still got a few days left of your holiday allowance and are at a loss as to what to do with them, perhaps earmarking one for Friday 15th July would be a wise move.

After studying temperature averages for the past 30 years, July 15th seems to be the day that'll see temperatures hit 28 degrees, with those living on the South Coast breaking the 30 degree barrier. 

Will it happen? Who knows. However, let's hope that we've actually managed to crack the forecast code this time so that we can all make the most of the fleeting yet fabulous, Great British Summertime.
