FOR those of you who have miserably put the heating back on this June, we have some fantastic news.

After an unpromising start, Dorset-based forecasters are predicting that temperatures will soar next week.

Dorset Sun says temperatures could hit 30c, although thunder is also expected.

Bournemouth and Poole Weather were even most optimistic. Forecasters say inland temperatures could reach higher than 36c across England.

However, before the warm weather is set to kick in the Met Office has issued another weather warning for thunderstorms on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

The forecaster said: "Thunderstorms may develop bringing torrential rain and lightning, with possible flooding and disruption to travel."

The warning, which will be in place from 12pm on Sunday until 11.59pm on Tuesday, covers the whole of Dorset.

At the start of the week the Met Office issued a similar warning for thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday, however, despite some rain no thunder and lightning was reported in the county.
