Pub-goers across England will be hit with showers tomorrow as parts of the hospitality sector are set to reopen.

Strong winds and rain will move in from the west during the morning, becoming heavy as the day goes on.

It will come as pubs, bars and restaurants begin to reopen in England. But Saturday’s wet weather means indoor venues could struggle to implement social distancing measures as people may ditch beer gardens and outdoor spaces to move inside out of the rain. Covid-19 infection rates are believed to be higher in inside spaces.

Met Office spokesperson Nicola Maxey said although the rain will lessen during the evening, low cloud and drizzly conditions will continue through to Sunday.

She told the PA news agency: “Saturday will see more unsettled conditions, with showers beginning in the west during the morning which will begin to move across to the east.

“While it won’t be unusually wet for the time of year, some areas in the east could become particularly heavy for an hour or two in the mid-morning to early afternoon.

“Pushing in after that will be a spell of drizzly downpours and some low cloud which will hang over the UK for the rest of the day.”

Between 35-50mm of rain is expected.

It will remain humid across the country, with maximum temperatures of 24C in London and the South East, while central and northern parts of England will reach highs of 20C.

Ms Maxey said this is due to a low-pressure weather system.
