The UEFA European Championships 2012 is set to kick-off this Friday, and for those of us who have been suffering from the effects of football withdrawal since the end of the season, a daily double-bill of international fixtures will be a tantalising prospect. As ever, Weather2 will loyally bring you the stadium forecasts and playing conditions for all Euro 2012 games. Just check the Euro 2012 weather forecasts section.
The opening match of Euro 2012 features the joint-hosts Poland play the 2004 champions Greece. The weather conditions for this match in Poland’s National Stadium are forecast to be hot and humid, with a good chance of rain.
The Eastern European heat could be an issue for some of the Northern teams especially as the tournament progresses into late June, with temperatures averaging in the mid-twenties in both Ukraine and Poland over this month. Furthermore, as these climate profiles illustrate, June is also one of the wettest and windiest months, so the Euro 2012 teams will likely have to cope with varied and challenging playing conditions, so be sure to keep an eye on the forecasts.
The Euro 2012 games themselves are spread over 8 stadiums in total; 4 in Poland and 4 in Ukraine, with the final being played on the 1st July in Ukraine’s Olympic Stadium. We have all the fixtures listed in our Euro 2012 Fixture Schedule, and each of these is a link to a specialized stadium weather forecast for that game. This includes a 7 and 14-day forecast with pitch conditions, as well as weather probability tables with precipitation and light condition information.
We hope you are looking forward to this summer’s Euro 2012 tournament as much as we are. And whether you are going to the games or just watching it at home, don’t forget to check our forecasts!
