You may have seen the piece on www.buxtonweather.co.uk about a ""The school summer holidays in Britain are going to be hot, with a high of 32C by the end of August".
This is unlikely  ----------------BUT more and more evidence is building about our warming climate.
The chance of high temperatures being reached in the UK has increased significantly over recent summers. Between the 1950s and the 1980s the highest temperature averaged 30C. In 1974 the temperature never exceeded 27C. Since 1994 at least one location in the UK has reached 30C each year and 32C has been exceeded each year since 2011. In each of the past five summers, including the present one, there has been a temperature of 34C or more somewhere in the United Kingdom.

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Saturday 27 Jul - Monday 5 Aug
Low confidence in the forecast for the weekend, with uncertainty in regard to the track and development of an area of low pressure southwest of the UK. This may bring a spell of wet and windy weather northeastwards across the UK during Saturday and Sunday. However, it should stay largely dry in the east and southeast. It will remain very warm in the southeast, with some localised heavy rain or thunderstorms possible. Into next week and we are likely to see a northwest/southeast split in the weather across the UK, with further showers or longer spells of rain affecting northwestern parts, with a better chance of drier and warmer weather in the south and east. Temperatures will generally be above the average for the time of year.
Tuesday 6 Aug - Tuesday 20 Aug
As we move further into August, the final month of the meteorological summer, confidence is low in the forecast with no one single weather pattern looking to dominate. It is most likely that low pressure to the north and northwest of the UK will give further showers or longer spells of rain in the northwest, with the better chance of drier weather in the southeast. Temperatures will likely be above average, especially in western and southern areas. However, confidence falls as we head into late August.---
