Updated 5:02pm Monday 19th May 2014 in News
Temperatures have soared to 24 degrees today in Braintree on the hottest day of the year so far.
This tops the average temperature for mid-May by 6 degrees but experts warn the heatwave might give way to storms during the week.
Meteorologist at Essex Weather Centre Tom Defty said: “This is one of the top ten highest temperatures for May on record.
“We could see thunder storms on Wednesday and Thursday as the weather goes downhill quite rapidly.”
