THE Met Office and UK Health Security Agency has issued a yellow heat-health warning for Salisbury this weekend, meaning residents can look forward to enjoying perfect beer garden weather.

Readers might not want to pack away their sunglasses and tanning lotion just yet, as the lovely hot weather we've been experiencing is set to continue throughout the weekend, with highs of 24 degrees Celsius expected in the city.

The yellow heat-health warning is the first issued this year by the UKHSA and Met Office.

It will be in place from 9am on Friday to 9am on Monday, reports Sky News, and the South East of England is affected by it.

Christopher England, a meteorologist at Sky News, said: "Temperatures over the weekend look set to reach 28-29C over parts of the south, 27C over central England and 26C for many other western parts, but could go a couple of degrees higher.

"Eastern coasts will be quite a bit cooler, with an onshore wind keeping top temperatures in the mid-teens on Saturday, but changes in wind direction mean it will turn warmer for many on Sunday, before an easterly wind returns next week.

"An official heatwave is possible in parts of the south and west, but cloud cover and occasional rain mean that the 'three days above the threshold' criterion may not be met.

"Top temperatures look like staying mostly above average for the next week, but it should turn a bit cooler thereafter."

Not a bad weekend at all, and football fans can rejoice as it means that beer gardens will provide the perfect setting for a day of 'preparation' for the Champions League Final between Manchester City and Inter Milan on Saturday night.
