Fine spell of weather set to end in a bang

THUNDERSTORMS are predicted across the Bailiwick from tomorrow, after a weekend of beautiful sunshine and cloudless skies.

A Guernsey Met Office duty observer said Sunday was the warmest day of the weekend, with temperatures reaching highs of 22.2C, well surpassing the yearly average for June of 17.7C.

‘Sunday’s maximum didn’t quite top the highest temperature of 2021 so far, beaten by 22.4C on 1 June, while the maximum recorded June temperature was 30.8C in 1976.’

However the fine weather is now predicted to subside with showers likely to occur tomorrow evening into Thursday morning, with thunderstorms likely.

Temperatures of about 19C are expected throughout the second half of this week.

The bad weather prediction comes ahead of today’s hedge trimming deadline. By law, landowners must trim vegetation bordering public roads between 1 to 15 June.

Property owners must clear away all the cut vegetation, or it can block drains and cause floods.
