BBC Weather warning: 'Disturbed' system churning tornadoes to smash UK this weekend

BBC Weather's Phil Avery forecast the south of the British Isles will be most affected by the stormy weather this weekend. Temperatures in the UK will plummet bringing rain and storm clouds with it throughout the weekend but sunny weather will continue in the middle of next week with highs of 19C. Meanwhile in central Europe, temperatures will remain in the mid 20s.

Mr Avery said: "Quite a combination of weather at the moment.

"In Iberia, you would have heard about the thunderstorm activity, some tornadoes as well.

"Some of that disturbed weather moving up through Biscay through France and towards the British Isles through the course of Friday, certainly into the southern parts of the British Isles where it's been unusually dry for the part four weeks.

"There's some heat to be had in central and western parts of Europe but once you move that little bit further towards the north and east, places there are locked in single figures.

"Quite a bit of shower activity as well widely spreading to the eastern side of Europe.

"Further south, make the most of the warmth here because some of the cool air from Europe is moving down towards the Balkans and then on to the southeast of Europe.

"Nothing particularly settled to start the weekend across the eastern side of Iberia.

"In fact, it will get much more disturbed as we go into next week."

He said: “Thursday low pressure will be approaching from the southwest. It leads to a risk of showers in southwest England and southern Wales.

“The rest of southern and central Britain has warm sunny spells. Temperatures could reach 22C (72F) in the London area.

“The north remains dry but cloudier conditions spread southwards and in the northeast it will be a lot cooler.”

Moving towards the weekend, Mr Gaze said: “Friday looks dry in central and northern regions. In the south and particularly the southwest heavy showers are expected.”
