Summer will arrive properly this week

It will start to feel summery this week. After weeks of heavy rain forecasters say temperatures will climb to the high twenties over the next few days – and even into the 30s.

Summer technically starts at 10.50pm on Thursday with the solstice.

Meteosuisse say warm sub-tropical air is rising giving temperatures a boost – but that will also bring with it its own issues – a risk of storms and heavy showers will increase from Thursday, especially in the mountains.

The warm air is likely to bring its own collection of Sahara dust with it.
