This weekend saw the true beginning of the summer, two weeks after the official start of the season. Will these temperatures be sticking around?

A hot Sunday

Sunday was the hottest day of the year so far for most parts of the UK. People flocked to the beach. Barbeques were rolled out. Burger and ice cream sales soared. And the crowd was able to enjoy the heat and sun as they cheered Andy Murray on to his historic win at Wimbledon.

Temperatures were a sweltering 29°C in London on Sunday, baking the Wimbledon crowds and the city. Beachgoers enjoyed the 29.7°C heat at Bournemouth. Cardiff was a beautiful 28.3°C while Southampton benefited from a high of 29.2°C.

It’s safe to say that summer has finally arrived.

Will it Last?

If forecasts are right, yes, it will last. This week should be hot and sunny across the UK, and that might only be the beginning. July could see plenty of hot weather. The UK might even enjoy its longest hot weather spell since 2006!

 

What about you? Did you enjoy the gorgeous weekend? How did you spend it?
