30C sizzler for beers and Euro 2020 weekend but beware ‘pollen bomb’ threat

This weekend has the making for one of the best in recent years with a triple whammy of fun and laughs to be had

Beers, Euro 2020 and 30C temperatures are all on the cards creating a cocktail for an action packed weekend for Brits to enjoy.

However there could be one sting in the tail after concerns that high pollen levels could bring misery to millions.

The Met Office is forecasting that the pollen count will be 'very high' across much of England for the next few days.

The high levels could be due to a 'pollen bomb' where trees, grass and flowers release high concentration of pollen in a short space of time.

Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin told The Sun: "If you like sunny skies then you're in for a bit of a treat because most parts of the UK will see an awful lot of blue sky on Saturday and Sunday.

"Saturday will be a cracking day if you like summer sunshine with temperatures generally in the mid to high twenties.

"On Sunday, we will see temperatures rising further, more widely over 27C and we could get 28C or maybe 29C across the south east."

BBC Weather is also predicting a weekend of sun where temperature could even get too hot for some.

The BBC said: "Saturday, England and Wales will have plenty of sunshine. Eastern Scotland will be partly cloudy and dry. Elsewhere, it will remain mostly cloudy with the chance of the odd spot of rain.

"Tomorrow, it will be dry and sunny for most, but a band of rain will push into far northwestern areas. Very warm and humid across much of England and Wales."

Leading bookmaker Coral has cut the odds to 1-3 (from 4-5) on this month being the hottest June on record as temperatures are set to rise further over the weekend.

Coral is offering 4-5 that the UK has a hosepipe ban at any point this summer, while it is 4-6 to be the hottest summer since records began.

"The mercury is set to rise further over the weekend and with temperatures threatening to reach the 30s, the odds have been slashed for this month to end as the hottest June on record in the UK," said Coral's John Hill.

"If the summer continues to be dry, it may not be long before a hosepipe is imposed," added Hill.
