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. [Featured Image: Paolo Paradiso, Shutterstock].
Then, May kicked in… *shudders*. The less said about May, the better–aside from a bank holiday weekend at the end that was actually quite lovely.
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), London is currently enjoying a toasty day of 23°C and delightful sunshine, but by the weekend we could be looking at temperatures of 27°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 reach highs of 30°C.
The Met Office currently says: “June 20 to July 4 has temperatures likely to be above average, with a good deal of fine and dry weather for the end of June.”
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 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!
