Every day feels like it's getting hotter and hotter, and although we've had storm warnings in place since Monday, nothing has materialised yet.

The Met Office has extended the storm warning until next Monday for England and Wales.

A spokesperson has warned "some places are likely to see severe thunderstorms during Thursday, but with significant uncertainty in location and timing."

The yellow weather warning adds: "There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.

"Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

"Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

"There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.

"There is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life."

Bournemouth Echo:

Their forecast is showing some light showers for Thursday and some cooler temperatures and cloud in the days ahead.

Thursday's top temperature could be around 26C while Friday it will feel cooler still at a comfortable 23C.

While the Met Office forecast doesn't show any specific timings for thunderstorms for this area, the BBC weather forecast is predicting thundery showers from midnight and then throughout Thursday and Friday.

Bournemouth Echo:

Accuweather is also displaying a possibility of thunderstorms from midnight in this area, with the possibility of further rumbles and lightning tomorrow morning and evening.

All the forecasts are still showing plenty of sunshine as well over the next few days, so no need to put away the sandals just yet.

The Met Office warning is in place until 9pm on Monday.
