UK weather forecast: Britain braces for weekend DRENCHING before heatwave strikes

Central and northern England should expect powerful showers, especially in the north-east. Patchy rainfall is also expected over parts of Scotland. The day will start cold, especially away from urban areas.

Met Office meteorologist Ellie Creed explains: “For some of us it will be a case of blue sky through Saturday morning, for others there will have been a foot on the ground first thing.

“Temperatures in towns and cities around mid-single figures, out into the countryside it will have been a fair bit colder than this first thing.

“Some showers around for parts of England and Scotland but there’s also a lot of sunshine around through Saturday morning.”

Temperatures are expected to peak at around 15 degrees in southern and western parts of the country.

However the amount of rain is forecast to intensify as we head into the afternoon.

Ms Creed predicted: “Showers will develop across England and Scotland though so into the afternoon a mixture of sunshine and showers for the most part.

“The western part of the country though will escape the majority of that wet weather.

“Further east it will be a little bit wetter with those showers around.

“For Northern Ireland on the whole dry and plenty of sunshine here.

“For Scotland a bit more of a mixed bag.”

Sunday will be warmer with more sunshine and less rain.

However there could be the occasional mist and fog patch in the early morning.

The weather is forecast to get a fair bit warmer next week.

Temperatures could hit the low 20Cs next week and increase further although clear, cloudless skies will bring some chilly nights.
