UK weather to bring torrential rain putting Britain’s 30C heatwave on hold with thunderstorms set to hit tomorrow

0

BRITAIN’S summer scorcher will be put on hold as heavy rain and thunderstorms roll in tomorrow.

Downpours will hit mainly the south and south east of the UK — but the stormy weather is set to clear for Super Saturday as England take on Sweden in the World Cup quarter finals.

It will also be the first weekend of Wimbledon and the London Pride march — with pub industry insiders predicting an extra eight million pints will be sold as Brits flock to beer gardens.

Temperatures will still hold up in the high twenties tomorrow despite the rainfall lending a muggy feeling to the weather.

This is expected to trigger some torrential downpours and thunderstorms — a jarring end to several days of a 30C-plus heatwave.

Parts of the south west including Dorset have already had a washout today — and more southeasterly areas will see the rainfall tomorrow.

But the showers will clear quickly as the we approach the weekend as sunny skies and high temperatures take hold once again.

Some patchy cloud will be the only spoiler on an otherwise sunny 30C day on Friday in the south — with an even warmer picture in store for a day of sport on Saturday.

The highest temperature is expected to be recorded in the London area on Saturday with 31C or 32C forecast.

Elsewhere it will stay largely dry and warm on Friday and Saturday across the UK.

Light drizzle is expected to affect northwestern parts at times over the weekend but it will mainly be a sunny picture across the country.

Met Office forecaster Becky Mitchell told The Sun Online: “Tomorrow many places will still be warm and sunny, but with a slightly fresher feel in the north west.

“There is a risk of rain with some heavy and thundery showers in southern England tomorrow afternoon and into the evening, while it remains largely dry elsewhere.

“On Saturday the highest temperature could be 31C or higher in the London area.”
