The hopes of warm and dry weather may be short lived however, with the BBC 14-day weather forecast suggesting that we might see some light rain showers on June 5, followed by further sunny spells.

Despite this, Chesterfield can expect maximum temperatures to remain above the 20C mark, with a reported fortnight long heatwave set to strike the UK from June 15.
