UK set for 'bumper heatwave' in June with 'days' of 27C temperatures

The UK is set for a 'bumper heatwave' in June with beer gardens, parks and beaches set to be sent PACKED as people across the country flock to them. Ahead of the Euros, Parkdean Resorts have claimed that the temperatures for the three games England is due to play in the group stages are all set to be over 20C.

The Thursday, June 20 game against Denmark is likely to be the coldest with temperatures of 21.6C England’s opener against Serbia is set to be the hottest, with a predicted mercury reading of 26.9C on Sunday, June 16.

And the game on Thursday, June 25, will see temperatures of 25.9C. Speaking out in a forecast stretching from June 10 to June 19, the Met Office says: "Showers likely to affect mainly north-eastern areas at the start of this period with the chance of a more organised band of cloud and rain from the west. Driest and sunniest conditions in southern areas.

"A build of pressure will probably bring settled conditions across the country for a few days after this, with dry, sunny conditions prevailing. Toward the following weekend, these dry conditions may start to decline with a greater chance of more unsettled weather developing.

"Should this happen, wettest conditions are likely to be in the north and west, with driest weather in the south and east. There is still a chance that drier conditions could remain in place more widely. Temperatures likely to be near or slightly below average at first, perhaps slightly above normal later."

A spokesperson for Parkdean Resorts said: "As the excitement and anticipation around EURO 2024 builds, fans are set to experience not just great football but also, as our predictions show, some of the year's best weather to date. While we encourage Brits to enjoy the sunshine with friends and family, it is also important to be safe in the sun.

"Exposure to the sun without protection poses significant risks, including sunburn and an increased risk of skin cancer. Our survey of 2,000 Brits found that knowledge around sun safety is a national problem, with 14% of Brits only applying sunscreen once a day and 12% never wearing sunscreen at all.

“Whether you are viewing the football matches in beer gardens, while on holiday, or in the garden this summer, remember to reapply an SPF of at least 30 throughout the day, wear protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses, and keep hydrated.”
