The Met Office has issued a heatwave alert with temperatures set to soar tomorrow in parts of Britain.
The hot weather is expected to start on Thursday evening and continue to Saturday, with heatwave conditions expected to sweep parts of the South East, London, the East of England, the East Midlands and West Midlands.
A level 2 heat-health alert, which is activated when there is at least a 60% chance of temperatures being high enough on at least two consecutive days to have an impact on health, has been issued by the Met Office.
Viewers have posted dramatic pictures of the storms which ravaged the UK last night. The photos were posted on the ITV News Facebook page.
It seems thousands of people were woken up by loud claps of thunder, seemingly constant flashes of lightning and torrential rain.
Britain is set to bask in the sunshine in the next few days with health officials issuing guidance on how to stay safe in the sunshine.
