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.
The weathermen have spoken: this summer is set to be our hottest for a hundred years. And yes, they sometimes get it wrong, but this time it might just be true Apparently a blistering ‘heat surge’ will be winging its way over from the continent to bring us heatwaves and scorching sunshine… As the summer holidays approach, we are looking at which week to book our British seaside holidays. But choosing which week is a risky business with our unpredictable British summers. Therefore, outdoor heating specialists Glowing-Embers.co.uk has pinpointed which day of the year is statistically the hottest; after painstakingly going back through 30 years of average temperatures, they’ve found it’s a sizzling 28°C on the 15th of July, which this year falls on a Friday.
