Euros group stage starts in sunshine

Not long now until the UEFA European football championships begin. Held over from last year, EURO 2020 begins on Friday 11th at 8pm as Turkey meet Italy in Rome. During the weekend, there will be matches in Baku, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Amsterdam, Bucharest and of course at Wembley. The group stages continue into next week when the current champions Portugal, will play their first game on Tuesday.

Friday 11th June Turkey v Italy 8pm Stadio Olimpico, Rome (ITA)

Temperatures in Rome are slightly higher than here, reaching up to 29C from the mid 20sC. Low pressure over the Adriatic is bringing showers to start the week but by Friday the weather looks fine and warm. The risk of a heavy shower is much lower by Friday.

London will have a fine, warm and often sunny week. This lasts through the weekend and at Wembley on Sunday afternoon there will be glorious weather in the afternoon, with temperatures 28+C.

Austria v North Macedonia 5pm Arena Nacaional Bucharest (ROU)

Netherlands v Ukraine 8pm  Johan Cruijff Arena Amsterdam (NED)

Monday 14th June Scotland v Czech Republic 2pm Hampden Park - Glasgow (SCO)

Bit far ahead for fine detail but there are signs that high pressure will be building over the UK. That would be positive for next Monday's weather as Scotland play the Czech Republic at Hampden Park. Usually, high pressure brings settled, fair weather. However, if western Scotland is at the edge of the high, there will be a brisk westerly wind bringing rain. We need to wait a few days.
