Summer has finally arrived.
When outdoor dining kicked off once again in Britain, the weather was reasonably kind to us. There were a few blusters of wind here and there but, for mid-April, we couldn’t have asked for much more. Then, May kicked in… *shudders*. The less said about May thus far, the better.
So, let’s talk about June. Ah, June. We can usually rely on you for a good number of sunny spells. Maybe even a cheeky little heatwave, if we’re lucky. And, it’s looking like the weather gods are starting to pull through. Today (June 7), Manchester is currently enjoying a toasty day of 21°C and delightful sunshine, but by the weekend we could be looking at temperatures of 24°C. Right in time to welcome in England’s Euro 2020 campaign.
Incredibly, it doesn’t even look like stopping there. June will compensate for our lack of holidays abroad by giving us a taste of the Mediterranean, with temperatures expected to continue with its trend of 21°C and upwards.
The Met Office currently says: “A good deal of fine and dry weather across much of the UK for the end of June” adding that “Temperatures are likely to be above average”.
In April, beer gardens were fully booked out, given it was the only option we had to enjoy outdoor hospitality again. But in June, if the weather lives up to expectations, we can safely bet they’ll be filled up once more due to the sizzling sunshine. Bring on the above-average temperatures!
Time to ditch the May raincoats and stock up on factor 50 by the time June rolls around!
