Between that mind-meltingly scorching heatwave in July where the mercury hit 40℃… and that other one where it touched 38℃ earlier this month, we have been through the ringer when it comes to hot weather.
As the bank holiday weekend approaches, we can confirm that the weather will be hovering around that sweet spot in London — not extremely hot nor arctic (well, as much as it could be in August), but blessing us with a nice and toasty 24℃ for most of the weekend.
Really, this weather seems like it was designed in a lab for peak outdoors-ing, which will be music to festival and carnival-goers. Not too hot, not too cold, bare minimum chance of rain after tomorrow (August 25), and a wee bit of cloud cover to provide a little respite.
The rain is coming (and really, we do desperately need it), but according to reports, will have been and gone by the time Friday afternoon rolls around, meaning your bank holiday-ing should pretty much go uninterrupted by activities in the clouds from the moment you’ve sunk that first pint of the weekend.
The weather forecasting community have literally never let us down before, so I’m blindly putting my faith in the absolute certainty of this. No chance of disappointment there…
