UK weather forecast: Britain braced for lightning and flooding hell – ‘Widespread thunder’ | Weather | News

Huge amounts of energy poured into the atmosphere over the past couple of days will trigger violent eruptions over the next couple of days.

The UK’s weather will turn cooler ahead of the weekend as chilly winds from the north cause temperatures to plunge.

Warm weather will largely hold out today and tomorrow as high pressure continues to draw air in from the Continent.

Southern and south-eastern England will hang on to the extreme heat until the middle of the week before the nationwide cool-down.

A plume of thundery activity will sweep in from the Continent today with homegrown storms also forecast.

Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “There will be a risk of thunderstorms into the early hours of Tuesday, some homegrown and others carried on a plume from the Continent.

“These will push northwards across Wales and northern England on Tuesday while the southeast holds on to the heat and the sunshine.

“Towards the middle of the week fresher air will begin to move further across the country and there will be further bands of rain and rumbles of thunder.

“Fresher air will make if feel cooler everywhere by Thursday and at the weekend a north-south split will see drier conditions to the south.”

Thermometers will hover around the 28C (82.4F) mark in the south during the start of the week before dropping by Friday, he said.

The entire country will feel cooler than normal by the weekend as winds start to come in from the north, he added.

He said: “Northerly winds will bring below-average temperatures by the end of the week as low pressure to the north of the UK starts to bring winds in from Iceland.

“It will feel different compared to the last few days with as air comes in from a much cooler direction.”

Torrential downpours will bring a risk of flooding to parts of the country hit by heavy rain earlier in the month.
