As we anticipate the arrival of summer 2024, many of us wonder: will the UK experience a scorching heatwave? The good news is that weather experts expect the summer to be nice, but not uncomfortably hot. 

According to weather forecast experts, while it's expected to be warm, the likelihood of extreme heatwaves is low based on the current weather pattern. So, for anyone who remembers the heatwaves of 2022, this year isn’t expected to repeat the same phenomenon! That being said, temperatures are projected to reach the mid-30s from time to time, so you should still be looking at some heat. Yet, the word of the summer is warm and not hot, and this is precisely what we want!

So, while we may not need to brace ourselves for record-breaking heat, it's still wise to prepare for the warmth and to consider the best activities to make the most of it. Let's explore how we can get ready for a summer filled with sunny days and balmy evenings without feeling overwhelmed.

A refreshing bucket list

While the temperatures may rise, summer in the UK promises to be enjoyable without being overwhelmingly hot. It's the perfect time to create a refreshing bucket list filled with activities that celebrate the season. From family outings to pic-nics in the park to leisurely days at the seaside, there's no shortage of ways to embrace the outdoors. You can even consider planning a day of fruit picking with your loved ones, if we believe the weather forecast. 

Indulging in the simple pleasure of harvesting nature's bounty while soaking up the warm sun. Isn’t it what summer is all about? 

Spruce up the garden for outdoor fun

With the arrival of warmer weather, it's time to transform your garden into a haven for outdoor enjoyment. Whether you opt for an inflatable pool for the kids or create a cosy lounging area complete with sunbeds and umbrellas, privacy is key. Consider installing pool fencing to shield your outdoor space from prying eyes, allowing you to relax and unwind in peace. 

Additionally, think ahead by adding shading areas such as pergolas, providing relief from the sun's rays while adding a touch of elegance to your garden retreat.

Start planning those fun continental summer memories

While summer in the UK offers its own charms, nothing quite compares to the summer on the continent. Countries like Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the South of France beckon with their sunny skies, cool breezes, and vibrant culture. 

Unlike the UK, houses in these regions are designed to stay cool during the summer months, offering a welcome respite from the heat. This is a change from our British homes! So, why not plan a weak abroad soak up the Mediterranean sun and enjoy fresh food, from juicy fruits to crisp salads?

As we prepare for the arrival of summer 2024, there's no need to fear the heat. But, while there may not be any harmful heatwave in the plan, it doesn’t mean it won’t get warm. The sooner you plan for the warm, the more you can embrace it and create lasting memories. Cheers to a summer filled with sunshine, laughter, and unforgettable moments!
