The heatwave in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield could continue for another week, as temperatures are predicted to stay in the 20s for the next six days.
Hertfordshire’s heliophiles are being urged to keep cool and hydrated.
Cabinet member for public health, Richard Roberts, said: “It’s great to see people out and about enjoying the hot weather.
“However, high temperatures can be dangerous, especially for people who may be particularly vulnerable, such as older people, young children, and those with serious illnesses.
“Everyone can enjoy the sun safely by keeping out of the heat at the hottest time of the day, avoiding sunburn and staying hydrated with plenty of cool drinks.”
