UK weather – Thunderstorms & downpours to lash Brits for a WEEK with yellow rain warning and threats of flooding

BRITAIN is set to be battered by storms and downpours this week with a yellow weather warning and threats of flooding ruin.

Rain will dampen spirits everywhere as Brits wallow in the post-Bank Holiday blues.


A yellow weather warning yesterday threatened possible flooding, travel disruption and power cuts – and today's forecast hardly looks brighter.

Drizzle today will start the week off with clouds and gloom, before more extreme weather at the weekend.

Temperatures will remain between 12C and 19C but it will feel cooler.

Tonight will be foggy in central and southern areas.

Britain to be LASHED by rain and thunder THIS WEEK warns Met Office

Although sunny spells might break through the showers, the UK will be wet all week after the highs of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The Met Office predicted "unsettled" weather from Wednesday, the wettest day of the week, with a chance of heavy rain and wind in the North.

But from Friday, expect heavy and thundery showers, with strong or gale force winds to the north and west.

There's even a flood alert for Bourne Brook in Tamworth, where heavy rainfall has raised the water level at the Hints river gauge.

Met Office forecaster Steven Keates told The Mirror: "Over the next few days the weather will be unsettled, changeable and perhaps unremarkable for the most part, a bit disappointing for the second week of June.

"Showers should hit parts of England to start the week, with the worst on Wednesday, before a more dramatic end to the week as heavy gales move in.

"From the middle of the week a new low-pressure front will begin pushing from the south-west, bringing a mixture of rain and thunderstorms in Northern Ireland and northern England.

"Wednesday will be the wettest day of the week, but areas in Scotland and parts of southern England should remain dry.

"However, Scotland's week of charming weather will begin to fizz out, as the vigorous low pressure front moves north from Thursday, with heavy gales expected in western areas."

The weather dampens an already gloomy Monday, as millions of "fed up" Londoners return to work after the four day weekend – amid Tube strike chaos.

There is set to be severe disruption across the London Underground from this morning until tomorrow at 8am.
