Fractionally short of being a June record breaker. Today's max temperature at Maison St Louis Observatory was 32.7°C.— Jersey Met (@Jersey_Met) June 25, 2020

Today is the new hottest day of 2020 so far, beating yesterday's top temperature by nearly 4°C.
Jersey Met says the sudden hot spell is down to very warm humid air coming northwards from Iberia on southerly winds.
It's set to be a lot cooler from tomorrow, with a high of 21°C currently predicted.
