London is set to get a mini heatwave this weekend (July 8-10) as temperatures soar to the high 20s according to the Met Office. 

With temperatures predicted to reach 26C, it's officially time to get out your sunnies and suncream and enjoy the summer sun. 

And even there better there is very little chance of rain across the week with the Met Office spokesperson sharing: "Increasingly dry and bright through Thursday and Friday with long periods of warm sunshine in light winds."

That means there's no need to worry about taking your umbrella along with you whilst you enjoy the heat, but it is recommended to keep a hat handy to avoid sunburn. 

So before you head out this week, take a look at the weather forecast according to the Met Office. 

Met Office's London weather forecast:

Starting on July 8 you can expect a long day of hot temperatures as the degrees reach 25C across the region. 

Though the sun won't be too bright in the sky, the day is set to be cloudy meaning you won't have to worry too much about sunburn. 

Next on to Saturday, July 9, which is set to be London's hottest day with temperatures ever so slightly hotter at 26C. 

Though there will be a slight cool breeze to cool you down and it will be partly cloudy so there should be plenty of shade too. 

Sunday (July 10) won't be much cooler than the days prior with 25C to 26C is the overall average for the day. 

Plus according to the Met Office, the skies will be cloud-free with the bright shining sun in the sky all day long. 

But if you do suffer from Hayfever you will need to e prepared as all week pollen levels are set to be very high.
