The county is set to be bathed in sunshine this week as temperatures are expected to soar as high as 29C.
Thermometer levels are predicted to remain high over the next two days across Kent , before falling slightly on Thursday.
The Met Office has increased the heat watch level to level two for the south east.
This means there is a 60 % chance of heat-health criteria being met between midday on Monday and 9pm on Wednesday with the hottest day being Tuesday.
Its website states temperatures are likely to fall short of the trigger level and the risks associated with Covid-19 are likely to increase the health impact of high temperatures.
Beachgoers in Folkestone, Dover, Whitstable and Herne Bay will be able to bask in as much as 26C heat.
Meanwhile in Maidstone, residents will be sweltering in 27C temperatures; while in Canterbury and Ashford there will be highs of 25C.
Tomorrow, residents will be treated to even warmer weather as Herne Bay, Whitstable and Faversham are expected to be baked in 29C heat.
By the end of the week, though, temperatures will fall below 20C along the east Kent coast.
The warm weather over the first half of the week coincides with the introduction of the government's rule of six , banning any gathering of more than half a dozen people.
If found to be violating the restrictions, people could be fined as much as £3,200.
And during an interview with BBC Radio 4's Today programme this morning , policing minister Kit Malthouse encouraged listeners to contact police if they see their neighbours not complying with the measure.
