Britain Set For Heavy Washout On The First Day Of Pubs Reopening

Britain Set For Heavy Washout On The First Day Of Pubs Reopening

In true British weather style, we're set for an absolute downpour this Saturday - just in time for our first trip to the pub in what feels like a decade.

And we hate to break this to you, but there will also be some pretty strong winds in parts of the country too.

So how bad are we talking? Well, it all depends where you are in the UK, but according to the Met Office, no matter where you are, there is a risk of showers.

What did we do to deserve this, exactly?

A Met Office spokesperson told Tyla: "There will be parts of the UK experiencing heavy rain, and it very much depends where you are.

"Throughout the day on Saturday there will be rain across the UK and it will be breezy. The heaviest will be in western parts - Cornwall, Wales, the north west, places like the Lake District and the Peak District - they will be quite wet.

"The east coast won't be too bad, places like Lincolnshire and East Anglia, areas like Suffolk, the East Midlands and Cambridgeshire will probably see the best of the weather.

"Pretty much anywhere you'll see a mixed bag. But, the indication is that it does look like it it'll brighten up towards the evening.

"The outlook is worse first thing and then gradually clearing throughout the day. Wherever you are there'll be the chance of rain and that chance of rain will be heavier in the north west."

The Met Office also explained temperatures will be a little below average on Saturday.

"Temperature wise we're looking at average to slightly below, it's going to be windy which will make it a bit less pleasant as well," a spokesperson added.

Pubs and restaurants have been given the green light to reopen on Saturday 4th July - but with extra safety measures to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

These include increased deep cleaning, social distancing, hand sanitiser stations, perspex screens and contact tracing.

While many people will be hoping to sit outside, the rainy weather could push people indoors - but in this case, social distancing rules will still need to be upheld.

Some pubs and restaurants are operating under booking only, so if you are planning on a trip out, make sure you ring up beforehand to book.

While we are a little disappointed the sun won't be blazing down, we haven't been out in months and a little rain ain't stopping us!
