Hot weather is set to make a return this week as meteorologists predict Wednesday and Friday will be scorchers.
Forecasters at the Met Office are predicting highs of 30C for parts of England and Wales as a plume of tropical air makes it's way from the Continent to engulf the southern half of the country on Wednesday.
However, the extreme heat brings with it the threat of thunderstorms. The Met Office have issued a yellow warning of rain for the Romsey area between 6am on Thursday 6th July and 6am Friday 7th July.
Forecasters have said: Isolated thunderstorms are likely to develop across parts of England and Wales from Thursday morning, before clearing east early on Friday. While these storms may miss many places, where they do develop intense downpours are likely, bringing a low risk of sudden flooding of roads, transport routes, homes and businesses. Lightning and hail may be additional hazards.
So, slap on the sunscreen and don't forget your brollies - welcome to British Summer time!
