Weather forecast UK tomorrow – Brits will get DRENCHED as Met Office warns of heavy, thunderous showers this week

BRITAIN is set to be soaked by days of heavy rain and thunderstorms in a miserable week of "unsettled conditions".

Brits enjoyed deliciously warm climes over the last few days, with highs of 24C recorded in London and the south-east on Sunday.

The Met Office said downpours first hit around 3am on this morning and that much of Britain will experience rainy weather by the middle of this week.

And the miserable spells will be interrupted by bouts of thunder as wind speeds increase.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain for most, some heavy with a risk of thunder. Windy on Wednesday and Thursday with further rain or showers. Temperatures near average."

    June could be hottest EVER, bookies say

    Next month could go down as the hottest June on record, according to Ladbrokes.

    With hot weather on the way over the coming days, the bookies have already cut odds from 5/1 to just 2/1 on next month playing host to the hottest June EVER.

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “A record-breaking hot June will more than make up for what looks set to be a miserable end to May, and the odds suggest that’s exactly what we could have.”

    Heavy rains could damage your lawn, here is how to fix it

    The coming heavy rain the UK has been experiencing combined with the hot dry weather could spell disaster for some gardens. However, all is not lost…

    Spring was unusually dry and cold recently. It seemed to have hit late this year with a wet May.

    Following heavy rain do not mow your grass once the rain has stopped. Add some fertiliser and leave it be for a couple of days.

    Keep an eye out for mushroom growth, if there are any, pull them out.

    Mow the grass once it is dry, but be careful to not cut it too short. The longer blades protect the ground from drying up.
