UK weather forecast – Torrential rain to soak Britain after 24C Super Saturday scorcher – The Sun

BRITS are bracing for heavy rain and wind to create 'an absolute horror show' this week. 

July 4 marks Britons being able to head back to pubs and restaurants, as long as social distancing can be maintained, but the weather may dampen the long-awaited day for some.


While Britain has been basking in the sunshine, with the hottest day of the year recorded last Thursday, temperatures are tumbling.

Some parts of the country are expected to be battered by up to five inches of rainfall.

Forecaster Brian Gaze wrote on Twitter: "GFS 12z has rolled out an absolute horror show for next weekend. Showers or longer spells of rain and windy.”

Looking at the week ahead, Mr Gaze added: “Wednesday brings showers to all regions. At times they could be heavy and prolonged. It remains quite cool for the time of year.

“During Thursday showers become more scattered. Temperatures remain disappointing for early July.


Mr Gaze, said: “Friday and the weekend are looking very unsettled. An unseasonably deep area of low pressure tracking just to the northwest of the UK has the potential to bring heavy rain and strong winds to all regions.”

He added: “It’s looking very unsettled as we head through the current week.

“There’s still uncertainty about the details for Saturday – on balance, it looks as though rain is likely in the north and western parts of the UK.

“Also a significant likelihood of rain in the south, but some computer models indicate the south could stay dry. At this stage, it’s not looking great.”

It comes as hotter conditions are expected to eventually return to the UK, according to the latest weather charts.

According to Netweather temperatures could start to pick up once again towards the middle of this week.

Charts show thermometers reaching 23C in the capital on Wednesday, and 23C once again on Friday this week.
