Stroud could see the warmest weekend since last summer as England kick-off Euro 2020.

Gareth Southgate’s team will play Croatia on the warmest day, Sunday, which is lined up to be around 25C according to the Met Office.

Met Office spokesman Stephen Dixon said this weekend is on course to be the warmest weekend in the UK since the end of last summer.

“Friday will be largely fine and dry for much of the country,” he said.

“There’s also clouds in the south [of England], however temperatures will remain above average for this time of year."

“You’re looking at temperatures of mid-20s across the country but in London it could be 27C on Friday.”

In Stroud, the weather will be cloudy on Friday with highs of 20C and even some occasional patchy rain, but Saturday promises to be dry and bright and Sunday a sunny 25C.
