But the bright weather won’t last long as thunderstorms and “torrential rains” are forecast for Wednesday.
Monday will benefit from scorching conditions with temperatures of 29C expected in the southeast.
But much of the north and Scotland will see temperatures start to cool down to 13C in the Western Isles, Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said.
By Tuesday, conditions will start to cool with 26C in the southeast and strong winds overnight.
But heavy showers hit from Wednesday and gales of 40 mph in coastal areas and heights as temperatures drop to 21C.
In some isolated locations in the southeast, 50mm of rain is expected in two to three hours, with 30mm falling in one hour in most areas.
Ms Shuttleworth said: “On Wednesday evening we start to see things become a bit more volatile as the hot / warm conditions in the south allow the thunderstorm to develop.”
A thunderstorm warning from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Wednesday is in place for much of the South East as well as parts of South West and Wales.
Further north and in Scotland, cooler but drier conditions are expected.
Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: ‘Very hot but increasingly humid unstable air will reach the UK by midweek.
“The end of next week is shaping up to be cooler with low pressure near the north of the UK.”
Met Office meteorologist Martin Bowles told Sun Online: “It’s nine degrees above average for June 13, so it’s hot.
Today, temperatures reaching 28C are warmer than those of Ibiza and Monte Carlo, not to mention Tenerife’s 26C.
The hottest temperature recorded so far this year was 28.3 ° C (82.94 ° F) in Northolt, north-west London, on June 2.
But the Met Office said temperatures were unlikely to exceed 30C.
They added: “We will get closer [but] we are unlikely to exceed 30 ° C – it will be a touch and go.
“It will be close to whether we get to 28.3C [on Sunday].
“The maximum temperatures are going to move towards the London area, but the heat is going to be generalized, it is not limited to the south-east.”
While most of the country will have a hot day, Northwest Scotland will have temperatures in the teens and it will be cloudier with a few outbreaks of rain.
Yellow alerts are in place on June 16, 17 and 18, with the Met Office saying: “Homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from flooding, lightning, hail and winds strong.

“Total precipitation of around 30mm could fall in an hour, with some places potentially receiving around 50mm in two to three hours, although these are quite isolated,” the Met Office said.
