UK weather forecast: Heatwave ENDS as Britain faces heavy rain & storms for next 24 hours

Gone are the glorious bouts of sizzling sun, to be replaced by downpours throughout Britain and a drop of more than 10 degrees in temperature. That’s according to the Met Office’s latest forecast for the day. Meteorologist Alex Deakin explains: “Still warmth around today across parts of Eastern England but nothing like as hot as it has been and overall it’s a much cloudier day generally many places.

“We will see showers throughout the day today.

“So the weather is definitely on the change after what has been a recent hot spell.”

Wednesday may still see some thunderstorms over the northern Isles of Orkney and Shetland.

Scotland and Northern Ireland will have to contend with a cloudier start to the day.

Mr Deakin explained the general picture: “Outbreaks of rain here and there, could be quite a wet day across Wales and southwest England.”

It is expected to be a bit brighter across the Midlands, though showers will strike East Anglia and the southeast.

Mr Deakin sums it up: “A lot cloudier than it has been.”

The wet weather will not blight the entire day, however.

Mr Deakin adds: “It’s going to feel cool under that rainy zone too through northwest England, Wales, which will extend through the Midlands and into eastern England before finally fizzling out during the early hours of Thursday.”

Thursday will see generally speaking a much sunnier start.

Across the day, some parts of the country will see showers. 

More cloud is expected in Northern Ireland and western Scotland.

This could led to rain which has the potential to spread through the country.

England and Wales will see the occasional shower.

Thursday is expected to feel much fresher than Wednesday.

Winds are expected to come from the Atlantic Ocean.
