September has proven to be a warm month so far with the UK seeing highs of 32C this week, but other parts of Europe could see even warmer temperatures next week, as he heat dome expands across a large part of the continent later this week.

On Monday, temperatures reached 30C in London while peak temperatures in France have reached up to 39C, reports reveal.

Meanwhile, temperatures in the UK will drop from Monday, September 11.

The conditions will keep challenging September’s records, with it marking the first autumn season of the month making the temperatures extremely high for this period.

Jim Dale, senior meteorologist for British Weather said: “We are seeing the peak today or tomorrow of 33C. It might get a bit of a replay tomorrow.

“I think it’s going to last until the weekend but it’s then going to start dipping a little bit but it will still feel warm and humid with it. On Monday it’s starting to tail off.”
