Heatwave As Hot As Magalluf To Hit Manchester

This isn’t Magalluf. This isn’t Miami. This is Manchester.

It looks like summer has finally arrived in Manchester and we’re getting some proper summer weather.

This isn’t Magalluf.
This isn’t Miami.
This is Manchester.

We get so little decent weather that we go a bit mad when we get some proper sunshine because we don’t know how long it’s going to last.

But there’s no need to panic. Because, according to the weather forecasters, temperatures are set to soar and will peak at a steamy 33 degrees on Wednesday with an increased chance of rain-just in time for the weekend.

Sip cocktails in style at a rooftop bar, hang out in a beer garden and dine alfresco in the hippest terrace restaurants. And did we mention sultry skyline views over the city at sunset? Just remember…

This isn’t Magaluf. This isn’t Miami. This is Manchester.
