Brits are set for 42 days of scorching heat this summer with a weather expert warning of a "temperature anomaly".
A Met Office spokesperson has claimed the current slate of warm weather is here to stay, with the hotter-than-average conditions to carry on until July 3.
By Wednesday, June 25, temperatures in the capital are expected to hit 22C, while "sunny spells" are already confirmed across the country, giving millions of Brits the chance to lap up six weeks of warm weather.

The spike in heat comes from a "temperature anomaly" which sees "above-average" warmth for this time of year.
Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: "The temperature anomaly for the next 42 days has a consistent signal for above-average temperatures at least into the start of June, if not beyond."
His comments come as fellow Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said the country is on track to record its "hottest day of the year so far" this week.
Forecaster Snell said: "The coming week has temperatures forecast to reach the mid-20s at times, with the hottest day of the year so far. It will feel very warm in the sunshine."
Toasty temperatures are confirmed to stick around by long-term forecasts from the Met Office website also, though some parts of the country may benefit from cooler winds.

They predict: "Temperatures likely to stay above average for the time of year, though eastern coastal areas may feel cooler due to the stronger onshore winds."
With "settled and dry" conditions expected throughout the country, a "French heatwave" is also expected to contribute to the rise in summery conditions.
The Daily Star previously reported a swathe of air masses travelling over the English Channel and up through the country, with weather gurus warning of "heatwaves".
A three-month outlook for the UK's weather, as confirmed by the Met, read: "There is a greater than normal chance of hot weather, such as heatwaves. Signals are consistent for winds blowing more frequently from the south and east."
