Kent is expected to bask in temperatures that could set a late bank holiday record today.
The thermometer is set to nudge 29C in the region, with some predicting it could be the hottest ever late August bank holiday.
Britain's warmest temperature on record for the late August Bank Holiday is 28.3C, set on August 27, 1990, at March, Cambridgeshire.
The late bank holiday has been in existence since 1965, when it was moved from earlier in the month.
According to pundits at the Met Office, today could be a fine and largely sunny day.
The forecast says: "With limited amounts of cloud, and light winds, it will turn very warm, perhaps hot in places. However feeling a little cooler along the coast, with a light onshore breeze developing."
Kent has a history of setting temperature records, but the county has a long way to go to reach the hottest ever UK day.
That was set in 2003, when Brogdale near Faversham sweltered in 38.1C heat.
