It’s fair to suggest we’re all sitting indoors right now with our sunglasses, suncream and flip flops on ready for the hot weather to return.
And with news of a mini-heatwave hitting us from the weekend, it’s also fair to say we’re starting to get just a little bit giddy.
This weekend starts off a bit rocky, with temperatures in Manchester hitting 16C on Saturday (bear with us) and then shooting up to 21C on Sunday (phew).
Is it too late to book some annual leave for next week?
By Monday, sun will be breaking through clouds and our dreams of a hot summer up t’North will finally become a reality.
Average temperatures reach 24C on Monday, according to the Met Office, followed by 26C on Tuesday and 25C on Wednesday, with pure sun forecast for the rest of the week.
However, in a tweet, they predicted temps of 30C hitting us by the start of next week.
After a fresher day on Thursday, temperatures will be on the rise over the next few days ????? 30 C is likely by the start of next week ??????

The Weather Channel has predicted sunshine and average temperatures of 29C for the entirety of next week in Manchester, so grab your sunnies and call your boss, ’cause we’re making the most of it.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “The final week of June will see plenty of dry and sunny weather across most of the UK, with only the far north and northwest seeing cloudier skies at times, with occasional rain.
“With the fine weather, temperatures will continue to rise for all parts, but especially so in the south where it could turn hot.”
