Miserable washout weekend ahead over four days of rain – but 25C sun to come

It’s going to be another washout weekend with rain set to lash swathes of the country, but forecasters predict soaring temperatures on the horizon.

The Met Office warned Brits to expect a cold start to Wednesday but with some sunshine as northern and western regions are hit by downpours.

As the week draws on, the rain will get worse with ‘thundery showers’ predicted for the south by Friday.

But next week there will be warmer skies with soaring temperatures expected to usher in July.

It follows a weekend of relentless rainfall for many, with parts of the South East recording up to a month’s worth of rainfall in one day on Friday.

June has been far warmer and sunnier than in washout May

Tuesday saw better weather, particularly in the South West, though rain delayed day five of the World Test Championship between India and New Zealand in Southampton.

Forecasters are now predicting it will be largely wet and cloudy from Wednesday right up until the weekend.

Oli Claydon from the Met Office said: “The best of the brightness will be further north and showers will hit the south of the UK this weekend.

“Southern regions of the UK can see temperatures hit the mid-20s by Sunday.”

Cardiff and Manchester may hit highs of 20C on Sunday, with Manchester expected to hit 21C on Monday.

The current outlook for July appears to be more promising, with temperatures expected to be above average at times.

Forecasts for London predict that by the end of the month and into early July the capital and some surrounding areas will see high temperatures of up to 25C.

Current forecasts show the warmer weather is expected to last for days.
