How hot the heatwave will get in every London borough

London is bracing itself for yet more scorching weather as the heatwave is set to continue into next weekend, and temperatures could soar as high as 34C in one area in London. Heathrow is predicted to reach 34C temperature on Sunday (July 17), which would make it the hottest day of the year so far. The Met Office has issued an urgent warning in light of the rising temperatures, with an amber weather warning for extreme heat covering much of England including London.

While most of London can expect to see sunny weather with temperatures reaching into the thirties, Heathrow is set to experience the most intense heat across the capital. READ MORE: Met Office forecaster reveals exactly how likely it is UK heatwave will hit 40C

Heathrow's sizzling temperatures are set to be 2C above the rest of London as northern, southern and eastern spots in the capital will climb to a max of 32C. Wood Green, in North London, is set to be one of the spots that will reach 32C on Sunday showing even areas not in the Heathrow hotspot should prepare for scorching temperatures.

In Romford, East London, temperatures will also reach 32C. Further south in Richmond, it's a similar story with highs of 32C and a low of 20C with clear skies and plenty of sun. The current highest temperature came from Heathrow last month as the heat rose to a warm 32.7C on June 17, which is expected to be topped again in the coming couple of weeks as predictions show temperatures could reach 34C in the same part of London.

The Met Office has released a health warning as exhaustion and heatstroke could be set to cause problems for many across the capital in light of the extreme forecast.

They said: "Whilst many of us like to enjoy the sunshine and hot weather, we should make sure we do it safely and remember certain groups of people are more vulnerable than others to heat or ultraviolet radiation. "Hot weather places a strain on the heart and lungs. For that reason, the majority of serious illness and deaths caused by heat are respiratory and cardiovascular.

Older people, those with pre-existing health conditions and young children are particularly at risk. "Overexposure to the sun is equally dangerous, with effects ranging from mild sunburn to skin cancer. It doesn't have to be hot for the UV index to be high.

The hot weather not only affects us but can also place strains on water and energy utilities, road and rail transport and the health and fire services." Here is how hot every London borough is forecast to be on Sunday (July 17):
