Summer is set to truly arrive in Manchester this week, with temperatures upwards of 26C.

Bright sunshine will be on the agenda, making for a nice end to June. 

The rise in temperature has prompted the UK Health Security Agency to place a yellow heat warning in place for large parts of the UK. Greater Manchester is included within this, and the warning is set to remain until 5pm on Thursday June 27.

Temperatures will hit 26C today (June 24) and will remain in the mid-20s throughout the week. Conditions will cool towards the end of the week, but there is no rain on the horizon. 

A yellow heat warning means, according to the UKHSA, that “adverse weather is likely to affect vulnerable groups”. There is also always scope for the warning to be changed at any moment.
