But the heatwave is set to end come Wednesday when temperatures are likely to dip to around the mid-20Cs mark.

"Elsewhere, temperatures in Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western England will be closer to average, the high teens being typical".

The Met Office also predicts that throughout the rest of August, the northern part of the United Kingdom may experience drier conditions while the southern half will likely see thunderstorms.

The Met Office said: "While many places will miss the heaviest rain, thunderstorms are likely to affect parts of east and south east England during Tuesday afternoon and particularly into the evening".

The UK's warmer than average weather could last until October, although the current heatwave is only expected to last for another two days.

The Oscars Are Changing Because You Aren’t Watching
But Wednesday's announcement means there are more opportunities for those films to be recognized during Hollywood's Biggest Night. The next Oscars ceremony will take place in Hollywood on February 24, as previously announced.

But looking ahead to the next three months, thermometers are forecast to remain higher than average, partially because of the effects of the prolonged heatwave.

"There is a chance of warmer than average and drier than average conditions", UK Met Office press officer Bonnie Diamond told Euronews.

Forecasters describe an "Indian Summer" as a period of unseasonably warm and dry weather that usually occurs in Autumn, when temperatures typically start to plunge.

"Sea surface temperatures close to the United Kingdom have reached near-record levels as a result of the prolonged hot and sunny weather", said the Met Office.

Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said: "As we go into August, September and October the odds look like it will be warmer than normal".

Alan Shearer And Ian Wright Make Their Premier League Predictions
The window closes on Thursday Aug. 9, three weeks sooner than normal, with the Premier League season starting on Saturday. Former Chelsea boss Ruud Gullit believes Liverpool will win the Premier League title this season.

The three-month outlook suggests a greater likelihood of high-pressure systems near the United Kingdom, meaning settled conditions are more likely than unsettled weather.

On Tuesday temperatures could peak at 34C in Essex or Norfolk, the Met Office said.

Ms Diamond said: "This means there is an increased likelihood of warmer-than-average temperatures and below-average rainfall".

The outlook comes amid Europe's heatwave, with several countries, including Portugal, seeing record-breaking temperatures in recent days.

Bookmaker Ladbrokes said the United Kingdom could still see 35C at least once this week before the heatwave ends.
