Warm weather this week will be ‘crucial for both brewers and pubs’ – London Business News |

Some areas of low cloud and patchy drizzle will persist around southwestern coasts, and the northwest will be cloudier with patchy rain.

It will feel very warm in places, with maximum temperatures of 28°C in London and mid-20s across the eastern half of the UK.

Tonight will remain largely dry with cloud thickening in the far west and northwest though giving patchy rain.

Tomorrow, patchy fog in the south will clear to leave a fine day with light winds and further warm spells of sunshine.

The highest temperatures are again expected in the southeast, where they could peak at 30°C in London. Elsewhere, temperatures widely looking at 25 to 28°C.

However, it will be a cloudier start for many parts of the north/northeast with some light rain or drizzle in places helping to subdue temperatures there.

Through the afternoon, some extremely isolated heavy showers are also possible across some western areas such as northern Wales and northwestern England.

Mark Sidaway, Deputy Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office said, “Although we are expecting to see some very warm temperatures this week, it may not be the wall-to-wall sunshine and blue skies people are expecting as there is likely to be some cloud around in places.

“Some areas, mainly central and eastern England, will see temperatures which exceed the heatwave criteria.

“To be officially recognised as a ‘heatwave’ though, the temperature must be reached for three consecutive days.

“Although we are looking to enjoy some nice warm temperatures, the weather this week does not look particularly exceptional or extreme.”

Emma McClarkin, chief executive of the British Beer and Pub Association, said, “The last period of sustained warm sunnier weather way back in September last year saw average increased sales of almost 20% and this is crucial for both brewers and pubs after the more challenging winter months and recent wet weather.”
