UK weather forecast: Thunderstorms hit UK amid fears of June deluge – ‘no end in sight’
A yellow weather warning is in place by the Met Office covering a large majority of the country. Britons have had to deal with severe flooding and travel chaos as conditions became dangerous. But for the beginning of summer, there is no sunshine in sight.
Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin said: “We’re in the middle of a very wet week with further wet weather to come over the next few days after some very soggy conditions through Monday and Tuesday.
“There’s continued threats of flooding and we continue to have yellow weather warnings in force.
“It’s looking like a wet a day for Northern Ireland.”
The rain will extend into southern Scotland, northeast England north and west wales as the regions are expected to have a wet start of the day.
Mr Deakin said: “There is further rain arriving that will spread its way to southeastern areas.
“Some heavy bursts of rain here there in lingering in parts of southeast Scotland with a brisk breeze coming in from the North Sea.
“A little bit drier may be over the West Midlands certainly in the afternoon over Wales and southwest England.
“The southeast could brighten up with a bit of sunshine but that could then trigger some heavy thundershowers here through the afternoon.”
The best place for dry weather will be Northwest Scotland according to the Met Office but it will still be windy.
Temperatures will struggle to reach the high teens while the wet weather is will make it feel much cooler.
Mr Deakin added: “It really won’t feel like June with that brisk and chilly wind continuing. The rain continues as well.
“That rain will be heavy at times adding on to what’s already fallen and it could cause as I say some problems.
“A lot of spray and surface water around on the roads.
“Overall there’s no sign of any lengthy spell of fine and sunny weather.”
