DRINKERS and diners will be hoping for good weather over the next few days on the first weekend since pubs and restaurants reopened their doors.

Currently pubs, restaurants and bars are only allowed to serve people outside. 

If you’re heading out to meet friends or loved ones in a pub garden or back garden this weekend, you can expect dry conditions and it will feel a bit warmer than of late.

Bournemouth-based forecaster DorsetSun said: “Sunny spells are expected this weekend with Saturday probably seeing the best of the sunshine. Light winds on offer with temperatures a bit higher than recently. Highs of 14/15c are likely, but staying chilly by nightfall.”

Fellow forecaster Bournemouth & Poole Weather said: “Beer garden revellers are likely to see mostly sunny daytimes although it'll still be chilly with temperatures struggling to get beyond 10-12C, during the evenings it'll cool down quickly with temperatures likely to be in the 4-8C range by say 9 or 10pm.

“Importantly though it does currently look dry all weekend, so wrap up warm and enjoy.”
