BBC Weather: Carol Kirkwood warns thunderstorms set to hit UK before heatwave shock

The two fronts will hit respectively the south-east of England and Scotland and Northern Ireland before slowly moving away northwards. The heavy showers caused by the two fronts will be thundery and slow-moving. Weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood warned: “We have two weather fronts today. The first one is across England and just leaving Wales. It will continue to bring rain pushing across East Anglia and the south-east before clearing.

“Sunny skies will come behind it with a few showers.

“And the second weather front is pushing northwards across Scotland and eventually resting in the northern islands, leaving behind it for Scotland and Northern Ireland sunshine and showers, some heavy, thundery and slow-moving.

“For England and for Wales is the west that will see some showers but there will be a lot of sunshine and a lot of dry weather around.

“And any showers that we do see will be blown away quite quickly on the breeze.

“Temperatures still around 19C in the rain in the north to about 25C as we push further south.”

But the storm season that will last for at least another two weeks will soon be replaced by another band of heatwave at the end of August. 

The heat is set to be particularly intense in London and the southeast of England, where the mercury could shoot up to six or seven degrees above the August average.

These strikes are set to wreak havoc across the UK this week, according to another weather map which shows where the strikes will take place.

The strikes will culminate next Tuesday, which will see thousands of lightning strikes unleashed across the entire UK.

The has warned there could also be delays and cancellations to trains and buses.

Met Office meteorologist Clare Nasir said: “The weather remains lively over the next few days.

“Some torrential downpours can’t be ruled out and we’re likely to see frequent lightning.”
