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.”
